Now for Declaration 6 of Not Breaking Integrity. Always remember that the world will bombard us with opportunities to be small and catty, but freedom and victory belongs to those who remain strong and true despite temptation.
Furthermore, remember that there is no integrity without clarity. Be clear on the character you want to possess. Sadly, when we don’t take the time to define our character or our identity, then we become a slave to impulse and mimicry that will lead to a break in integrity, which will eventually kill our personal freedom and personal success.
Declaration 7: Amplify Love! Love is our origin and our final destination. Nothing more need be said, right? However, I think I will say a few more things here about love because we need to know during those hard times in our lives that love was never absent from our lives, we just simply allowed our awareness of it to diminish. Furthermore, remember that all breakthroughs in life are merely through higher energy- in most cases, that of love.
Declaration 8: Inspire Greatness. Brendon Burchard says that we must have the courage to ask, “Am I living a truly great life?”
Listen, billions want the world to improve, we all want something to give to, to believe in, to fight for. Here is our chance. Like Gandhi said, ‘We must become the change that we want to see.” Be that change and others will follow you all the way to that state of living a truly great life.
Finally, Declaration 9 of Slow Time. We are not supposed to miss this moment. We need to slow it all down so we can feel it once more, enjoy it once more, and live it once more. The bottom line is that life is finite. And too many people have found out the hard way that life will randomly, and all too soon, be taken away… To combat this finiteness we need to heighten our senses to everything around us so that life will slow down to an enjoyable peaceful pace that causes us to feel free, alive, and finally the master of our own destiny; regardless, of how long we walk upright on this planet that we’re all sharing.
In closing, once again Brendon Burchard has written another fabulous book that causes us to eagerly turn each page so we can quickly see what awesome, thought-provoking thing he’ll say next. It’s a great book that will help all of us live a higher quality life, as well as remind us of all the sacrifices that those who have gone before us have made. Good reading my friend.
