Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge, let your learning lead to action. What are you learning that you need to incorporate into your life?
I picked up a book written in 1980 called Rhinoceros Success by Scott Alexander. I read this short little book in one morning. I’m thinking about having my thirteen-year-old read it. Financial expert and author Dave Ramsey requires all his new employees to read the book in their first 90 days.
In some ways, it’s crazy – comparing our lives to the lives of rhinos; in another way it’s a great image. We were made to go, to do, and to charge!
Here are reminders from this book for this new season we’re entering.
Rhinos wake up in the morning and start charging. What big dreams do you have today?
Get enthused about the rest of your life. Get going on the things you want to do and become.
Have a child-like faith. Jesus says, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Don’t worry; just go.
Use Time Wisely
Cows sit, lay in the shade, watch, and move slowly. Rhinos make every minute count. There’s no time to waste. You can always get more money, but you can never get more time.
Take Care Of Yourself
Eat the best possible way, walk, and be active as much as you can. We must be in tiptop shape to have the mental and physical strength to stay on the move.
Read The Bible And Believe In God
God’s grace is free, and believing in God is awesome. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t try it. Your connection with God will make a difference in how you see yourself – You were created to be more. Be faithful in your commitment and go with God.
Try New Things
Don’t get stuck in a rut. Try something new. Keep an abundance mindset – there’s always something more.
Don’t just charge at work, make sure you are giving 100% at home, with friends and family. Be sure you are present, alive, and active. Involve your family in your dreams and plans.
Every day is a new opportunity to take life by the horns and charge, but in new seasons, I’m really refreshed in thinking about how life needs to be. I enjoy making plans and goals. Though slightly silly, this book was a great motivation to jump in and charge this year!
