Episode 6 - Allow Your Focus to Override Your Fears

January 9, 2018

 

When you are faced with a task, are you more inclined to go for it or list all the things that could go wrong? In 1978, Karl Wallenda, an international aerialist, had the task of walking a high wire that was suspended 120 feet above ground. His final walk is a lesson on the importance of choosing to focus on the end result instead of being controlled by our fears.  

 

 

 

Highlights from today’s episode:

 

  1. You have to desire the end result.

  2. You have to believe that there is purpose on the other side.

  3. You have to know that God would not show it to you if He didn’t desire you to possess it.
