There used to be a radio show called American Top 40 hosted by Casey Kasem. Casey would always close his show with these words "Remember to keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!" I was never quite sure what that meant as a teenager but it sounded good.
"Reaching for the stars" and "Shooting for the Moon" are two phrases that are inspiring but also can become just words about dreaming and hoping and moving toward unattainable goals.
Now, don't get me wrong, I am all for positive thinking and dreaming but at some point you have to take the lead and learn from people who have accomplished something and take initiative, make a plan, and seize the opportunities in front of you!
So, the next question is, has anyone ever reached the stars and made it to the moon and if so what was their philosophy?
Ahhhh I am glad you asked....of course it is NASA and here is their motto:
I think we are prone to sit and wait and hope something happens and then jump in. If something isn't happening or doesn't go the right way we can always blame someone else and say "Hey, it's not my fault!"
Do you find yourself in this scenario?, "What can I do? I am only one person. Everyone else is more qualified than me. I don't know enough. What if it doesn't work?"
Jesus said, "You're asking the wrong question. You're looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do. We need to be energetically at work for the One who sent me here, working while the sun shines. When night falls, the workday is over. John 9:4 (The Message)
"Look instead for what GOD can do!!"
He doesn't have to....HE MADE THEM!
