Have you ever awakened from a deep sleep with the question-where am I? When the deep slumber flees, grogginess passes and eyes are open I know physically where I am, but that is a time I like to reflect on my life by looking backwards in time and then forward into the future. This pondering allows me to consider the successes and failures that are slowly scripting my life’s story.  This process of self-evaluation helps analyze where I’ve been and of equal importance, where I intend to go.  This self-talk creates a distinct reference point for the organization and preservation of my dreams, goals and desires.  When I look into the mirror, do I see all the potential resting latently in my soul? After all, reflection can be a key to progression. Author Og Mandino said, “I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.” This has application in my spiritual growth as well.  According to President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “As sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, we are capable of so much more. For that, good intentions are not enough. We must do. Even more important, we must become what Heavenly Father wants us to be.” Focusing upon these loftier goals affirms the direction I must take to assure my royal heritage as a son of God.  What have you found most effective in your life to evaluate, redirect, and implement?
