A lot of people are looking for a breakthrough in their life. Today we’ll talk about one of the keys to getting a breakthrough—and keeping it!
With this week’s Leader’s Tip, I want to talk to you about the key to seeing a breakthrough in your life. There is nothing more common in life than people who don’t change. It is one of the saddest realities in our world. And what makes that really sad to me, is that it doesn’t have to be that way.
I talk to people all the time who are looking for a breakthrough in their life or praying for it, hoping for it. They are even desperate for it, but they feel stuck. Ironically many of these people have regular breakthroughs, they just don’t last. They get great insights; they experience God speaking to them. They have moments of revelation or profound understanding about themselves or about life, and then nothing happens, nothing changes. They are left with a cool experience, but nothing of substance changes in their life.
So why not? What it often boils down to one thing, to a lack of follow through. See the real key to breakthrough in your life is all in the follow through. We all get lots of insights and moments of understanding, the real question is what do we do with it? If we really want to have a breakthrough in our life that lasts, we have to act on those moments of insight.
We have to take a step to apply or act on it right away and then we have to build on that act by turning it into a habit. Once we develop a habit in that particular area, we will see real significant and lasting change. We’ll have a breakthrough that lasts.
Here is an example, a couple of years back I realized I was seriously over weight, and it was causing health problems for me and I knew I had to do something. But nothing happened until I committed to exercise and I got a coach. I recently finished my first half iron man triathlon, I was really proud. The key for me was not in recognizing that I need to do something, the key was following through and developing a habit that changed my life.
So remember, they key to having a breakthrough in your life is all in the follow through. Act on those insights, put feet to them. Then you will see some real change takes root in your life.
