I have this bright pink three subject notebook that I use to help me organize my life. One section is for business (You know, those ideas that come to you in the middle of the night.), the other for blog topics (Hey, I’ve gotta write this stuff down before I forget it!) and the other for faith and inspiration.

Monday as I was being zapped by my physical therapist I was reviewing my notebook when I came across this book excerpt.

It really struck me.

It is from the the book “Become A Better You” by Joel Osteen. I am a big Osteen fan.  His books on faith really speak to me. Become a Better You

“The enemy knows something about about what is inside of you, as well.  He knows the POTENTIAL you are carrying, so he does everything he can to keep that seed from taking root.  He doesn’t want your (dreams) gifts and talents to FLOURISH.  He doesn’t want you to accomplish your dreams.  He wants you to live an AVERAGE, MEDIOCRE life.”

That is really powerful when you think of it that way, isn’t it?  I think my biggest fear has always been to live a mediocre life.

Just thought I would share.
