Your Possibilities Are Endless

Hey Moguls, Preston Ely here…

“Pleasure disappoints; possibility – never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!”
~ Soren Kierkegaard, 19th Century DanishPhilosopher and Theologian

Well, I’m a happily married man now with a baby, but here's what I used to think about alcohol and ladies as a then-single, studly dude…

Sometimes, I wished alcohol was more like what the commercials make it out to be. Mainly, when I started drinking it, women magically appeared and thought I was God. Ha! But, despite my already mentioned studliness, the reality was, it took way more than just cracking open a Bud Light to make it happen. AmIright, guys?

It really took a couple dabs of Old Spice, a classic line like, “You’ve got 45 seconds to convince me to stay here next to you. Go…” AND a Bud Light. There, my single-guy secret’s out. (I don’t need it anymore anyway.)

If drinking was more like the commercials, I would tell our Danish friend, Soren, to go philosophize himself off a steep cliff. But it’s not…

Friday night pleasures quickly become Saturday morning regrets. The parties of yesterday transform into the miseries of today. The temporary fulfillment of sin always leads to the permanent emptiness of a broken heart. (Deep, huh?!)

I still drink and go to parties – don’t get me wrong – there’s nothing wrong with that. But what I’m really referring to is excess... Routine drunkenness. Living for the weekend. Finding our main source of joy in physical pleasure.

Remember this – losers live for the weekend. Winners look forward to Monday mornings.

Don’t be or settle for ordinary.

The whole reason I chose Soren’s quote is because I immediately recognized how profound it is.

“Possibility” is indeed intoxicating. Seeing the potential for your life and actively working toward it is one of the keys to your happiness. So…

endlessStep 1 – Realize that you were born for something great.

Step 2 – Start working toward discovering that great thing and reaching your full potential.

Please stop settling for being ordinary. That is so lame.

You are boring the crap out of everyone. Jesus wasn’t ordinary. So don’t kid yourself into thinking you’re being holy. You’re being lame. Impotent. Good for nothin. Selfish. Lazy. Pathetic. Yep, I said it.

It’s time to step it up. It’s time to be somebody. You’re making $50,000 a year when you could be making $10 million. You’re helping no one when you could be helping everyone. So, ask yourself:

  • Who are you inspiring?
  • Who are you providing for?
  • Whose heart are you bringing healing to?
  • What good are you doing for the world?
  • Why are you alive?

Look to yourself for these answers, friends. Stop looking for your sense of value and self-worth based on other people’s opinions. That’s a recipe for misery. People are corrupt to the core. Who cares what they think?

“Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils. For why should he be esteemed?”
          ~ Isaiah 2:22


The possibilities for your life are limitless. Set down the Bud Light. And reach for the stars.

Holla at me
