I have spent the last several years failing. What first comes to mind when you hear that sentence? What position must I be in? What opportunities do I have left or missed out on? Is there any validity in what I am saying… Is he even a reliable source? Failing is not the same as failure. Hear me on this. In any situation there is a choice. Fear and doubt may be thundering at you like a freight train, and you can be overcome by that situation or overcome it. As history proves the second has been more beneficial. FAIL to me means First Attempt In Learning. If you don’t see it that way that is where we must begin. There is a reason the phrase exists that asks, “Is the glass half full or half empty.” My job is to acknowledge that there is the same amount of volume in the glass and decide how I want to proceed. “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” Robert Frost understood that all successful people in history know very well that obstacles exist in our lives. We have to either yield to that obstacle, go around it, or overcome it. Welcome to Legends Of The Wilderness. Let’s get started!

I have trained hundreds of people and have come to the conclusion that we are, in our design, perfect.  What is not always perfect, are people.  The body has an untapped standard of potential, we in the exercise science world, are continuously baffled about. Our jobs may have us sitting for hours at a time.  Eating adequately that compliments your performance may not be easily accessible, but our employment is not what we are talking about here. We want to become better at what we do. We want to go fast without stopping and then go faster. The problem is that when we search through scripture trying to apply it, we are making orange juice with apples, and wondering why it doesn’t taste like orange juice. Jesus lived in the time where eating wasn’t just about going to a drive thru, saying a number, and pulling up to the next window for your prepared meal. They farmed. They planted seeds, there was a process and they harvested. It took longer. There was preparation. It was a different time in which He spoke to His people in a way they would understand and know… Our culture’s mindset is sometimes, even with good intentions, misused.  In John chapter 8 verse 12 he says, “Then Jesus Spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.'”  To have light He had to start a fire… And when you start a fire you have to keep it burning. The fire in my soul, and the love I have for my father, doesn’t get put out with a flick of a switch. I don’t turn that on and off whenever I go to church and when I go work out or go to work. I carry that with me everywhere I go and when I get closer to Him I am adding fuel to that fire and it only burns brighter and hotter. If the fire turns off then I have to start it again. Keep the fire burning!
