It's How Good You Want to Be.

I recently ran across a small book with a simple but profound title:

“It’s Not How Good You Are. It’s How Good You Want To Be.”

The book is a good read, but God specifically used the title of this book to challenge me and move me toward the pursuit of everything  God wants me to be. 

I don't know about you, but on a daily basis, I am tempted to focus on what I think I am NOT, or compare myself to someone else and dwell on what I am not good at. That kind of thinking, however, will not get me where I need to go.

It’s not how good I am. It’s how good I want to be.

It really doesn’t matter what I am today or what I am not. What matters most is what I want to become and the price I am willing to pay to attain it.

I have never felt like I was the fastest, smartest, or most brilliant person in the room. I WILL outwork everyone. I WILL out-hustle everyone. I WILL stay focused. I WILL be disciplined.  

I WILL read. I WILL study. I WILL listen to podcasts. I WILL grow, I WILL surround myself with coaches and mentors. I WILL work to sit under people smarter and further ahead than me and soak everything like a sponge.

I WON'T fool myself into thinking that because I have read it or heard it that I am better. I WILL execute. I WILL have a plan. I WILL work the plan. I WILL do what I SAY I am going to do. 

I WILL NOT have excuses. I WILL follow through.  I WILL be faithful today, where I am, so God can entrust me with MORE responsibility.

It’s not how good I am. It’s how good I want to be.

This statement speaks to my desire. My grit. My determination. My discipline. My intentionality. My stick-to-it-iveness. My self control. The Bible says this is a fruit of the Spirit. So...I have decided....

It’s not how good I am. It’s how good I want to be.

Let me ask you a question:

How good do you want to be?

It’s not how good you are. It’s how good you want to be.
