Ep. 46 | This One Action Will Kill Your Personal Growth More Than Anything Else
Published March 25, 2021 by Tom Hermann
What do the Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee have to do with your personal growth? The both receive water from the Jordan river, but one is an environment that helps support life while the other is an environment where nothing can survive. In order to fulfill your life purpose it's important that you're creating an environment that supports life instead of death.
In today's episode, I want to share with you how this analogy pertains to your personal growth, and the one action you can take to prevent an environment where your growth goes to die. We'll also talk about how your actions truly indicate what you believe, and that you might have a "goal belief" that is different than your true belief.
Faith was credited to Abraham when he believed God's promises and acted as if they were true. It's crucial, as you pursue the purpose of life, that you continually evaluate what your true beliefs are and take the necessary steps to align your goal beliefs with your true beliefs.
The Dead Sea is too low, geographically, to have an outflow of water. Therefore, the only exit for water is through evaporation, and it creates an environment that cannot sustain life because the salt content is too high.
Like the Dead Sea, if you're not finding an outlet for your learning, then it will cultivate an environment where personal growth cannot survive.
There's a difference between knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
You can't just DO BETTER ... you have to change the thought behind the belief
