The Lion Chaser’s Manifesto

Just started reading Chase The Lion by Mark Batterson. Already hooked at this opening page!

Lion Chaser's ManifestoQuit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.

Run to the roar.
Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-given passions.
Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention.
Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution.
Stop repeating the past and start creating the future.
Face your fears. Fight for your dreams.
Grab opportunity by the mane and don’t let go!
Live like today is the first day and last day of your life.
Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God.
Don’t let fear dictate your decisions.
Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails.
Live for the applause of nail-scarred hands.
Don’t try to be who you’re not.
Be yourself. Laugh at yourself.
Dare to dream God-sized dreams. Dare to be different.
Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.
Chase the lion.
