So, you’ve made a decision and you’re pursuing BREAKTHROUGH. You’ve SMASHED through that initial fear of failure and you’re on task. You’ve put the small increments in place and you’re moving toward success.

Shouldn’t progress be UN-Impeded? Shouldn’t you see consistent progress and feel momentum all the time?

What happens when you hit a RED LIGHT?

Does it shake your resolve? Does it seem UNFAIR? Do you question the process, and go back to the beginning to make certain you weren’t mistaken when you set your eyes on such an ambitions goal?

Red lights are necessary. They provide safety.  They often help us navigate the intersections on our journey. Some believe (like me) that God gives pause to our journey at times because His timing is perfect.

Sometimes (they say) Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread.  In other words, constant movement isn’t always the most efficient journey to our destination.

Don’t let uncertainty creep in to the Red Lights on your path. Celebrate the fact that you’re making progress toward your chosen Definition of Success.

Red Lights are landmarks on the journey to success.
