Imagine a set of blueprints in your hands. If you knew that following these blueprints would lead you to a sense of fulfillment and discovery of purpose, would you wait long to unroll them? We all know intuitively that today can be a big problem for tomorrow. Or it can be the reason tomorrow is full of possibilities. So now is a great time to ask yourself: Today, what are you building?
What are you building? Ceilings, Floors, Or…?
I love to think about all the different metaphors I’ve heard for how we are to build a healthy foundation and future for ourselves and our kids. I’ve heard it said that our ceilings should be their floors. In other words, however high you have reached to discover your potential or how far you’ve traveled from the beginnings your parents gave you, this should be the starting point for your children. Your legacy would leave your family in a position to go further.
What do you think about this idea?
It certainly inspires me to aim high and do my very best. But what if the ways I am designed to think, feel and act are very different from those of my kids and those I influence? (They usually are, by the way.) In this case, what I’m building needs to also be a space that supports the growth and development of people who live life with very different ideas, drives, and motivations than my own.
For some, ceilings represent a barrier. But for others, it represents something to reach for — a goal.
Floors can be viewed as a starting point from which to move away as far as you can go. Or floors can be viewed as the foundation that supports everything you are trying to do – a place on which you stand.
So, I want to suggest that even more productive than raising the roof or elevating the floor, we learn how to follow the set of blueprints our God-given inner designs reveal. Our unique inner designs include a package of inner strengths that help us build a healthy today and tomorrow.
