I’ve been focused and studying for the past few hours but I had a thought and wanted to get it off my chest.
I want to go to Harvard for my JD/MBA. That’s just #facts
I’d accept Stanford, Wharton or Yale (although I don’t want a Yale MBA).
If I don’t get into Harvard or any of the aforementioned schools for my JD/MBA, I’m going to forget about going back to school and I’m going to chase my dreams.
I’m going to figure out how to build several successful social enterprises and for-profit companies without Harvard.
I’m going to figure out how to be a multi-billionaire without Harvard.
I’m going to figure out how to travel the world and live out my calling spreading the love of Jesus without Harvard.
I’m going to figure out how to influence the seven mountains of culture without Harvard.
I’m going to live my best life and I’m going to enjoy my life without Harvard.
That’s only if I don’t get in.
If I do get in, though, then of course I’ll enjoy myself while there, and do all of the aforementioned things with the resources, connections and opportunities that God provides me.
The point of it all is this. I’m my own best secret weapon. I am sufficient. Everything I need to fulfill God’s call on my life is in me. I hang my life on Jesus and on who He made me to be. Not on Harvard. I am who I am today and I will be who I will be tomorrow with or without Harvard.
THAT I believe is the definition of living life with an open hand.
