I just returned from a hog hunt in Texas. The hunt was quite successful until the last day when my son-in-law lost his father to a massive heart attack. He was on the hunt with us after having had several heart attacks in recent months. He might have even been a bit dishonest about how well he felt in order to have his son bring him on the hunt he had dreamed about for years. He fulfilled his bucket list at a high risk to his health. I applaud his actions as I too leave my death in God’s hands while keeping my life in mine.

Do you have drive? Are there any dreams you have that are so clear and large that you are driven to a high risk? The truth about life is “NO RISK; NO REWARD”. If the length of your life is more important than the quality of it than it is driven by fear and not God. I have been driven my whole life. Before I was rewarded with my new life I was driven by fear and today I am driven by love. I love my life and am always looking for new opportunities for me, my family and anyone else who is interested in riding along.

One is not really living if one is living in fear. Being driven by love and God fills me with wonder and awe; the two emotions that God rewards me with. I am driven to know God and the universe God has rewarded me to experience. My life is a result of courageously moving forward through fear knowing that fear is merely an illusion that dissipated upon confrontation. Find your drive by losing your fear. Pray and meditate for God’s direction and care. If you want to know what drives you remember…

Your Life is PERFECT!

About Randolph Ek

My name is Dr. Randolph Ek, Mpsy.D. I started life as one of five children of an alcoholic father. The physical and mental abuse nearly destroyed my life. In fact my self-destructive behavior nearly landed me in prison. I eventually was guided to an alcohol/drug counselor and he directed me to a rehabilitation center. Since that time I have spent more than thirty years devoted to helping people find their ultimate potential. We can blame our negative, spiraling life on victimization but until we accept responsibility the power we need is beyond us. When we accept our part in our lives and surrender to a higher power, which I choose to call God, intervention is immediate. God allows us to realize our true power. We are all made in God’s Image and Likeness and have all the power of the universe at our disposal. We are not victims; we are volunteers and once we believe this truth our lives become limitless. God wants us all to have our heart’s desire and he will deliver whatever we continually think about good or bad. Unless I start my day off powerless and humble I cannot make the spiritual connection required to tap into God’s limitless power. God loves mankind and refuses to leave anyone behind. We can go willingly or we can be dragged to salvation. Pain is merely a symptom of spiritual separation mind, body and spirit. Realize, your individual limited resources, seek help, join others in their quest for spiritual understanding. Realize that all religions are right, yet they are also incomplete.

One thought on “Drive

  1. Hi Randy,

    Thank you for sharing this story and adding your beloved spin. I really like the way you turned a tragedy for some into a great learning lesson for the rest of us. I hope that your son in law can embrace the love side, not the tragedy side.
