Dreams, Purpose, Success, Change & Wisdom

Today’s “Monday Motivations” are inspired by my son’s Marine Crucible later this week. To give you an idea of the Crucible, MarineParents.com, Inc, created the

Slogan:
“Forged by the Fire of The Crucible – The Transformation is Forever”

On Thursday at 2:00 am , Luke will begin his Crucible, the final test before, on Saturday, he claims his Eagle, Globe, & Anchor and he is officially a Marine.

Fun Facts about

    Marine's Boot Camp Crucible
  • Takes place over 54 hours
  • Covers 48 miles
  • Includes 45 lbs of gear,
  • 36 Warrior Stations,
  • 20 Team Building Exercises,
  • 6 Hours of Sleep, and
  • 2 MRE’s

Luke's Crucible starts on Thursday at 2:00 am. In support, I will be lighting a candle that I’ll keep burning for his 56 hour Crucible experience.

And while there was a time that I would have found preparations for the Crucible exciting, today, I’m admittedly not even close to being prime for such a challenge. Having said that, I’d still love to rappel down the Marine’s 75 foot boot camp tower – I love rappelling!

In the meantime, I’m also sending Luke daily letters with themed quotes for this week leading up to his Crucible. Here are some of my favorites – they all come from BrainyQuotes.com:

Personal Dreams:

“A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”

~ Colin Powell

Purpose:

“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”

~ John F. Kennedy

Success:

“What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”

~ Margaret Thatcher

Change (PS I really think this one is both cool and profound):

“When you alter yourself, the alterations become the truth...”

~ Margaret Atwood, The Robber Bride

Wisdom, Understanding, & Self-Actualization:

“Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization.”

~ Bo Bennett

May you have a week filled with dreams, purpose, success and the blessings of change, wisdom, understanding, and self-actualization!
