Your second, second and the second mile

Many audios about leadership have affected my journey to date but very few have impacted me as much as Chris Brady’s “second, second.”  In the cd Chris Brady goes over having your first waking second feeling great and your second, second having the burdens of life coming into your mind.  He says Freedom in life  is when your 2nd second is as good as your first.  There is many ways to help with that second, second and today I just want to go over one way, and that is the understanding in Life you will have  to go that extra mile that you didn’t expect.  SOO Expect IT. so that we do not have to fret about it in your second, second

It wasn’t uncommon for the Roman soldiers during Jesus’s time to oppress the Jews and  have the Jews carry heavy loads for miles.  Jesus came and said “if a man compel you to go a mile, go two miles”   There is in the statement a thought pattern to master the situation by being prepared to do more than expected and to not get weary in good work.  It creates an abundant  willingness to go further, work harder than expected. Aubrey Andelin says “going the second mile is a way a man lightens his burdens and learns to enjoy his responsibility. A half-hearted effort nets nothing in satisfaction. As one devotes himself to his God, his family, his work , going beyond the call of duty to be completely responsible as possible, he experiences satisfying fulfillment”.          IN his Second Second.

If you are successful in your endeavors the first mile,  thank God, but for the rest of us “MERE MORTALS” lets expect to go  TWO.   God Bless         Devoted

  1. That second second is what life should be about.
    Waking up and appreciating all that life has to offer and all that GOD has given us to enjoy.

    Cody – thanks for a reminder of how life should be – full of second seconds!!

      And while we strive for that second second that Chris is talking about, we can re-frame the second seconds we are currently experiencing so we don’t lose traction fretting. Thanks for what you’re doing here Cody; looks great with content to match.
