Raging Inferno

By Coach Flint Wallace:


I came across a quote recently on Brian Johnson’s “Daily Optimize +1” emails; I receive one each day from www.optimize.me. If you haven’t checked them out, I highly recommend that you do.


The quote is from the famous Roman Emperor and Stoic Philosopher, Marcus Aurelius.


“The blazing fire makes flames and brightness out of everything thrown into it.”


The “blazing fire” refers to that inner desire to accomplish your dream. It is your “why” and every challenge or obstacle you overcome is like throwing more wood or coal on that fire. Every time you put more fuel in the fire, the bigger, brighter, and hotter that inner fire burns.


We often want to avoid challenges and obstacles in exchange for what we feel is security, but living a lifestyle of minimum restraints is only false security. It stifles that inner fire. For a fire to continue to burn, you must feed it. It must have fuel and that fuel for your inner fire is the obstacles and the challenges.


So don’t shy away from problems, difficult tasks, challenges, tests, trials, or obstacles. Instead, face them head-on because you know they are the fuel that sustains and strengthens that inner fire.


They are the necessary source for your inner fire to become a raging inferno!


Until Next Time… Keep Getting After It!
