I have a reputation. I sort of knew that, but in conversation the other day I was pleasantly surprised by a friend’s words. Some folks had been talking and it was mentioned that I was seen as “always kind.” That blessed me because more than a decade ago that became a goal and I began to practice “being kind.” (The more you do it, the better you get at it.)
In other circles it’s assumed that I’m good at being a sexual partner to my husband. A number of years ago my husband and I started ministering to married couples and were one of the few ministries that would address sexual issues (a part of that was our story of building our marriage in the face of sexual struggles). My husband and I work to keep our private life very private, but it’s pretty obvious that we are happy with each other. Being good at sex (with my husband) is another area where I made goals.
I could go on, but the point is, working toward goals can effect great change in your life. Five years from now what kind of reputation do you want? Ten years from now what do you want to be known for? What do you want to do well? … start practicing now.
How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to? Anthony Robbins
