Around 9 years old I was at the edge of the bank of a lake, I vaugley remember fishing that day, but if I caught something it would have been memorable. What I do remember is that standing at the edge and looking down, there was a small pole on land and a rope with fish hanging just below the murky water. Well, I took one wrong step and slipped into the water, now I didnt know if the fish were alive or sharks existed in that murky water. If you were there you would have seen live the first boy to walk on water and not ever want to go into a lake again till he was older. There wasn’t any visibility in that water from where I was standing, and even in a pool something always looks like jaws swimming in the deep part of the pool.
I say all of this to bring up the topic of clarity:
CLARITY- The state of being clear, easily seen
Just for a moment take a deep breathe and think the word clarity, matter of fact repeat the word over and over in your mind , then repeat the word audibly out loud. If you took this exercise seriously, you may have experienced a couple of things; calmness, peace, maybe solutions, even possibly some direction. What I am trying to to get you to do is take a moment and think. “Thinking for a change,” as John Maxwell so briliantly wrote.
This is where the struggle lies in our lives in our mind a battle rages, the noise or distractions that come against us and in us so regularly through out the day are deafening. Think about the noise from work, the noise from family, the noise from business, the noise from yourself. All of these things lead to a lack of clarity. Allow me to share a few key principles to help with clarity factor-
THE CLARITY FACTOR
e. Share with others
2. TRUTH- a sense of truth, authenticity, integrity in your life brings tremendous clarity. This looks like being a person of your word, doing what you say you will do, work to be yourself and not someone else, evaluate your dreams and make sure its truly what you want and not borrowing them from others. Betru to yourself , so you can be true to others.
A man with integrity , walks securely (clarity)
I’ll stop right here, even though there is more to share. If you can master these two key principles over the next 60 days. You will exprience the clarity factor.
