One month down and eleven to go . . .

How fast the month of January has seemed to pass. Here is a thought for you:

How January went is how your year may go.

There is a truth, “If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you got.” This first Monday in February you can gain a good perspective about what you may accomplish this year, if you keep doing what you are doing.

  1. Are you happy about what you accomplished in January?

  2. Did you follow-through on some of your desired, “upgrades”?

  3. What was your most important accomplishment in January?

The Super Bowl yesterday was a great game as it usually is. The game had:

  1. Accountability to rules,

  2. Time allowance,

  3. Teamwork,

  4. A goal and a prize,

  5. It came to a victorious conclusion, (for one team).

Accomplishments in life are similar. It takes teamwork, there are rules, time allowance and a goal linked to each life accomplishment. In 2 Timothy chapter four Paul said, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith and now the prize awaits me.”

As I look over my life, I feel that I have made some “touchdowns” for the team. I want to make more before I join Paul and say, “I have finished my race.” But, I want to keep the same anticipation that Paul had as he faced the challenges of life and ministry. He ran right to the end. 

When the Vince Lombardi trophy was given each person thanked the team.

I realize that nothing is accomplished alone. I am blessed to have a great team around me. My wife, Janet has been beside me since the beginning. I have had people speak into my life each step of the way. I have a professional “coach” I pay to get with me twice a month. If Tom Brady needs a coach, so do I. I want to keep, “upgrading” the game.

I hope to see you at the podium . . .

Have a great Monday,

Larry Neville
