I learned a valuable lesson about life and I can also apply this word narrow to many areas of living successfully, I'll let your mind and heart determine your own story. The story i'll share is the one that comes from when I made my first six figure income, It was the time not long ago when so much had my attention, sports, TV, the latest news, social networking sites, other unhealthy devices, etc. and making less than 35K/year, now I believe some of these things have there place. I just didn't understand that this broad living this selfish , fearful living was making me waste all my efforts on too many things that ultimately did not produce any more fruit in my life.
In comes a mentor into my life at the time and there were many things I learned from him. This one thing that I share today, was that I was to "narrow" my living, get super focused on a dream and a goal that would have to include more than just me. A dream or purpose that consumed me just like those other things did. I had to have discipline , put myself last, constantly and daily remind myself of the greatness inside of me, and take many steps of faith. This path proved to be very difficult for the first year, very difficult, I am still growing. I had to rewire my thinking with the books I read, the people I listened to, and the association I had.
I love this quote that Matthew the disciple of Jesus wrote of Jesus, "Go through the narrow gate..the gate to life is very narrow..this road is hard to follow, few will find it." Broad is easy, most people will live their lives that way. I believe because you are reading this you have been called to follow the narrow way, success in all areas of life and an example to many.
