Choose to Live a Life That Matters

Our Dreams Need the Lion Chaser’s Manifesto

“Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.”

 Mark Batterson

The above quote is from Mark Batterson’s book, Chase the Lion, which I highly recommended last time. It’s also the first line of  his “Lion Chaser’s Manifesto” which is found below. I’ll let the words speak for themselves. You can can download a great pdf of it here.

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at deah.

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. Become part of the solution.

Stop repeating the past. 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 the last day of your life.

Burn sinful bridges.

Blaze new trails.

Live for the applause of nail-scarred hands.

Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God.

Dare to fail.

Dare to be different.

Quit holding out.

Quit holding back.

Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
