These wise words from the Navy Seals ring true in most of our lives. Before we decide to take on a seemingly insurmountable task, life is easy, but not necessarily rewarding. Once we get started, we begin to doubt that our goals are achievable. We wonder if we should have set the bar lower, if we should have left the heavy lifting to others. When we put our doubts aside and commit to achieving what we once thought was impossible, anything is possible. The secret is to move forward with fearless determination and to never take a step backwards. Own your mission in life, commit to it fully, and ignore those who will tell you that it can’t be done.
My mission in life is to end abortion. I’m in the warm-up phase right now. In about four and a half years, when I plan to retire, my full-time job will be fighting for every unborn child’s right to life. I’ve been told that I can’t make a difference and that nothing I can do will close the doors of Planned Parenthood and their friends in the business of killing babies. I believe otherwise. I know it sounds crazy, but I’ve seen a world where we no longer allow our children to be killed and we respect every human beings’ right to life. It’s a world I want my grandsons to grow up in and a world I would like to experience before my life in the physical realm comes to an end.
The time we all were given is priceless and we never know when our time is up. The time we waste can never be recovered and no one knows when they’ve performed their last good or bad deed. I’ve made the choice to do everything I can to leave the world a little better than it was when I got here. I could have chosen any number of good causes to work for, and never would have thought that I would be chosen to work for a cause. On May 12 of 2013 I was called to speak out on behalf of our unborn children. The call was unmistakable and I have no idea why I was picked. I could have ignored the call and gone about my life; not spending countless hours writing, and not spending every day wondering what it will take to reach my goal. I could have done anything else with my life, but I couldn’t look into my grandsons’ eyes, knowing that thousands of their future friends are killed every day, and not do anything to stop it.
I work hard at my day job and at this point in my life I’m just doing it for the money. I look forward to the day in the not so distant future when I no longer work for money, but work full time at something much more important than worldly compensation. I look forward to working harder in retirement than I ever worked at building my career. I look forward to the doors slamming shut at all the world’s abortion mills for the last time, and I look forward to the world I’ve seen in my dreams becoming my reality.
