Sacrifice, according to the Encarta Dictionary, means a giving up of something valuable or important for somebody or something else considered to be of more value or importance. I used to look at people who had things or positions I envied as having sacrificed to achieve. Today I realize that people with true intelligence never sacrifice, they merely revalue their lives. When we value time more than stuff we are quick to let stuff go. This is why the license on my vehicle is LET. 

To achieve greatness we must learn to prioritize. Until the things that are needed to create greatness are priority one then we look at our lives as a sacrifice and difficult to make decisions. When we replace sacrifice with willingness our decisions are much easier and our success is guaranteed. When I sacrifice I fight with myself but when I exchange my priorities willingly, things run like a well oiled machine. I never know from day to day what my priorities should be so I spend much time in communion with God to subdue my stress and strengthen my resolve. 

As a recovering alcoholic I never sacrifice. I willingly turn my life and will over to the care of God. I pray and meditate until I have a peace and then I hit the road full speed ahead. I know that I have the right vehicle, on the right road, at precisely the perfect time to achieve God’s will for me. The problems come when I think either I know what the outcome should look like or I lack the faith in God’s will for me.

Don’t sacrifice. Lovingly turn your life over to the care of God. If what you do benefits the greatness of others, as a fellow child of God it must also bless you. Be quick to revalue your life and learn to do what is right not necessarily what you want. I was told years ago, “You can either be right or happy.” Today I choose to be happy over anything. This is a good start to understanding…

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.
