Think a minute…Can you imagine an engineer building a tall skyscraper without a plan? Someone said: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Success is no accident! It doesn’t just magically happen. You have to plan for it to happen.
As one guy put it: “You must plan for a great future. After all, you have to spend the rest of your life there.” We must have some kind of plan of what we want and how we’ll get it.
You see, if you shoot for nothing you’ll hit it every time! A wise person said: “If you’ve accomplished everything you’ve planned in life, then you’ve probably not planned enough.
You’re getting too old when all your dreams are reruns.” The very successful head of the Chrysler Automobile Corporation, Lee Iacocca, used to ask his workers: “What do you want to do? What do you want to be?
What do you want to have? Where do you want to go? How do you plan to get there? Write it down. Now go do it. It doesn’t get any simpler or better than that.”
So why not start living your life on purpose? First dream it, then do it. They say that 1 hour of planning will save you 3 hours of wasted time and work. With a plan, your work is working for you!
Your plan will keep you in control of your life, moving ahead toward your goal of success and happiness. But after you plan your work, you have to work your plan.
Discipline is what brings your dreams into real life. A dream with no discipline will just remain a dream, and a plan without work will be a plan that won’t work.
So today, why not ask the One Who designed the plan for your success to take full charge of your life. Jesus also has the power you need to make that plan start working for you. With His plan in hand, you’ll go all the way to the life He wants you and your family to enjoy. Just Think a Minute…
