MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“We need a backbone, not a wishbone.” -Joyce Meyer
Let me give you a statement of strength now on Minute with Maxwell from my friend Joyce Meyer.
Hi, my name is John. She said, ‘We need a backbone, not a wishbone.’ Joyce has such a beautiful way to say such wonderful things in such simplicity that they just kinda stand out, don't they? We need a backbone, not a wishbone. I wrote a book several years ago called Put Your Dream to the Test. I love that book because it was basically a book that helps people know that if they have a valid dream or not. And there are 10 questions I teach people in that book to ask themselves to make sure that they have a valid dream. In it, though, I make a statement that just kind of stands out and the statement is this: Dreams are free, but the journey isn't. The reason we love dreaming on the front end is because we don't have to pay a price yet. Sit around the table and talk about what could be, what should be, what we hope to be kind of Disneyland it all day long. You see, as long as we sit at the table and just dream of our dreams, we don't have to work. We can have a wishbone. But the moment that we take the journey and say, I'm gonna act on that dream, now that takes backbone. I wish for you to have more backbone.
Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
