Dear Josh

This was a personal moment for me when it dropped on me earlier today, but I still felt it needed to be shared. Hopefully you all gain as much from it as I did 😀

When you know what matters, you don’t need to know anything else.

What does this do?

It FREES you.

Gives you focus.

It actually causes you to develop a sensitivity to what matters and what doesn’t matter. It allows you to see how what matters and what doesn’t matter are intertwined and how they interact with one another. It liberates you to learn any other things you may want to learn without the pressure of failure or condemnation. It releases you to embrace the challenge of experiencing life to the full without fear of missing out on anything.

How so? Because you’re laser focused on what matters.

And THAT is your “why.”

Why do you do what you do? Live the way you live? Pursue the dreams you pursue? Why do you live your life on purpose despite the open temptation of complacency?

Because you have the knowledge of what matters.

And anytime you have doubts, or depression tries to creep in, or the Enemy attacks… ANYTHING- ask yourself what really matters.

And if, in that moment, you are unsure, then make it your primary duty to find out. Don’t sulk. Don’t let those heavy dark feelings or wrong thoughts linger. Don’t bear that burden out of some twisted sense of obligation.

Find out what matters…

Because when you know what matters, you don’t need to know anything else.

Period.
