Keep Moving Forward Part 2

Yesterday in Part 1 of this post series we started looking at a quote from Walt Disney. Here is that quote again:

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things - because we're curious. And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. We're always exploring and experimenting.” Walt Disney

Often times in the life of an individual, company or ministry we can come to a point where failure seems pretty final. A point in life where you may not feel like taking one more step. It is in these moments that we have a choice. A choice to believe in what we know as truth. That we are not down but are instead at the moment of a breakthrough.

Mr. Disney said something great to start this quote, "we don't look backwards for very long". I can relate to this as every morning I spend about 15 minutes driving on the interstate at around 70 mph. Every now and then I will glance into the rear view mirror, but not for very long. If I keep my gaze locked on that great piece of equipment that can be used in a useful manner something terrible would happen. No, I glance backwards, take stock of what is there and proceed on to my destination.

We all have a great destination we are on and this quote provides some solid advice that we can cover this week. Three points that could unlock the breakthrough that we so desperately need.

1. Keep Moving Forward
2. Open Up New Doors
3. Do New Things

Join us again tomorrow as we dig into that first point.
