There are no “magic bullets” but there are defining moments in life.
A strong foundation for living a good life is in walking one foot in front of the other in the same basic direction. I say same “basic” direction because wisdom dictates course adjustments at times.
However, even in the course adjustments we make, they – more often than not – need to be subtle and in the same direction. Over correcting error is a common human fault. Most often this results in compounding the error rather than correcting it.
But back to the main point…
The bible story of David and Goliath demonstrates a defining moment for he, Goliath, Israel, and the Philistines. His one moment affected many people for many years to come. So, it’s true….there are defining moments in our lives.
But, it’s also true that this particular story of a heroic defining moment (where God is the hero, btw) is build on the back of several other “defining moments.”
If we lead our lives with the attitude that no one specific decision or action makes that much of a difference, we can become apathetic and life looses that exciting edge. Our days become a “trudging forward” mindlessly climbing mountains and slogging through swamps.
Therefore, having an attitude of consistency and perseverance in the littlest things is the foundation. However, within our “life march” our eyes best serve us as they look for opportunities that are “defining moments.” Sometimes they will string together. Other times those defining moments will seem to be decades apart <although they aren’t really>.
Live life consistently and persistently. But also, enjoy the journey with anticipation and courage as to what giants you may have the opportunity to conquer. They will surely arise.
