Run and Not Be Weary
Island in the Bay, Coconut Island in Hilo Bay, known throughout the Hawaiian Islands as a place of healing.
Another great peice by Dr. Robert Rohm,of "Personality Insights" (this is the firm that helped to develope a system of personality typing that is used in business) on a subject that I know I need to give some thought toRecently, I was talking to a good friend of mine who is much older and wiser than I am. I told him that I was exhausted from all of the activity I had been involved in lately. A big smile came over his face as if he knew something that I did not know. When I questioned him, he looked at me and said, "Actually, I think you are just tired but I do not think you are exhausted." I asked what he meant by that. He told me that he had discovered that being tired is actually a good thing. When you know how to do something and you work hard at it for a long period of time, you are going to get tired. That is a very natural experience. Anyone who works hard doing something that they are gifted to do or have been trained for will get tired working in their daily routine.
He went on to explain that for him, being exhausted came from trying to accomplish something that he did not know how to do. That immediately got my attention. As we talked about it, both of us came to the conclusion that trying to do something you do not know how to do, will indeed, exhaust you. It may even kill you. One of the greatest challenges in all of life comes when you try to accomplish something that you have no idea how to do or, have no business doing.
How many of us have ever tried to "fix" another person? Perhaps you have been in a marriage or family relationship where you tried to force another person do what you wanted them to do. Were you successful at it or did you get exhausted in the process?
Work is not a dirty, four-letter word. It is something that all of us should love to do. It causes us to understand success and fills our lives with many wonderful opportunities. So, the issue is not work. But, if you are trying to do something that you were not called to do, gifted to do, trained to do, or have no experience in doing, I can assure you that you will become exhausted very quickly.
Perhaps you are in a new job, or a new relationship, or some kind of new situation that is tiring you completely. You may be exhausted because you do not know what you are doing. If, on the other hand, you are learning and growing and the process is becoming more understandable, more tolerable and, perhaps even a little easier, then you can expect to get tired in the process but you should not be exhausted.
That little distinction made a big difference in my mind. The next time I feel as though I am flat "worn-out", I am going to ask, "Am I tired, or am I exhausted?" If I am tired, that may be a good thing because I am simply fulfilling and accomplishing what I was made to do. If, however, I am totally exhausted, I may need to check my agenda to see if I am trying to do the impossible. After all, I am not Superman and a few years ago I gave up trying to help God resolve all the issues in His universe. He was very relieved to receive my resignation!
Robert Kiyosaki, author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", says the difference in being successful financially and being broke, is in understanding financial terms. Perhaps understanding the difference between being tired and being exhausted will help re-energize you in the days to come. I hope so.
Perhaps the prophet Isaiah put it best But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
