“Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.” - Oscar Wilde

There are no mistakes.

Only lessons.

These lessons teach us valuable information about ourselves that allow us to grow towards the next level.

Each level of growth provides us with huge, magnifying, and penetrating eyes that see far more than the average human being on the planet.

Lessons along the way are worthless if we don’t learn and act upon them.

This is the real lesson.

The best book, the best recipe, the best training and the best whatever is worth nothing if you don’t internalize and experience it in your life with deliberate and decisive action.

The feedback from these experiences is the learning that actually takes place.

We have so many talents and treasures buried within that rarely make it to the surface.

As a result, we do so many things for a variety of reasons.

Dig deep.

The answers are already there, desperately trying to break ground.

Don Williams, Jr. said, “The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.

The journey is far more important than the goal. If we continually chase the goal without enjoying the journey, it is all for naught. At some point, we pause and understand that we missed the most important elements.

It’s all about the journey.

Honor your commitments to yourself.

Honor your commitments to others and the experience will be more life giving and fruitful.

The largest gap that prevents people from achieving their hearts desire is knowing what to do but not doing it.

So here are some do’s.

Do it by serving people and not money.

Do it by exceeding expectations above and beyond.

Do it by resisting to desist.

Do it with integrity.

Do it by caring.

Do it with excellence by starting and finishing.

I've said it many times to many people, “Words are only words but action speaks volumes.”

After it’s all said and done, talk is cheap but action is expensive.

It is expensive in terms of giving, forgiveness, determination, persistence, passionate, mentoring and everything else that goes with it.

The end result is worth every single cent of energy expended.

Enjoy the journey and the destination will have much more meaning for you.
