Start with what you need to stop

As we reach different stages in our lives, we find ourselves wanting to do more, needing to do more, and inspiring to do more.

Contrary to popular belief, much of our success isn’t tied to what we do.  In retrospect, it is actually tied to those things in which we don’t do.  Yes, people who have reached any level of success have done some great things; things worthy of being recognized and noted in the walks of history.  However, I assure you that all of these individuals share a common theme: They have resolved some things that they don’t do, have stopped doing, and will never do again.

Too often we are so determined to “start doing” something, that we overlook those things we should “stop doing”.  This could be the very thing holding you back.  This could be the difference between good and great.  This could be the difference between simply living, and leaving a legacy.

Stopping, in many cases, is better than starting.  So the next time you ask yourself, “Where should I start?”  Remember this: Start with what you need to stop.

With God, nothing is impossible.
