Chase The Lion

The image presents a striking contrast of light and shadow with a silhouetted figure standing in the doorway. The room is dark, and a beam of light enters through an open door, illuminating the figure and casting a long, distinct shadow on the floor. The person appears to be pausing on the threshold, perhaps contemplating stepping into the light or remaining in the shadows. The scene suggests themes of decision, uncertainty, or transition.

BOOMM Book Recommendation: Chase the Lion by Mark Batterson

January 2, 2023, Written by Brett Levine MD


There are so many highlights in this book that resonate with breaking from being stuck and making a change toward progress in your future.


I want to share with you the GOLD that inspires me.

And hopefully you.

If you’re looking for an excuse, you’ll always find one.

If you’re looking for an opportunity, you’ll always find one.


Quit complaining about what’s wrong and do something that makes a difference.


You are one idea, one risk, one decision away from

a totally different life.


It is the ability to choose your response that will likely determine your destiny.


Once the door to the future opens,

the door to the past slams shut.

There is no turning back.

It’s a new day, a new normal.

Let’s make January 1st, 2023 a new day for you!

Don’t let what you cannot do keep you from doing what you can.


What can you do?

What step can you take right now, today to change more of the same?

Our natural tendency is to think the way we’ve always thought and do things the way we’ve always done them.

That is safe and what doctors do.


What do you need to stop doing today?

Write it down.

I needed to create time and space in my days and weeks for ideas outside of medicine.

I wanted to find people who lived the life I want in my future rather than in my past.

I learned to set goals that made me uncomfortable and were not a sure thing to accomplish.


What do you need to start doing today?

Write it down.

Read a new book about what you want to change in your life.

Listen to a podcast from our website that opens the door to different concepts and strategies.

Every decision and every indecision has a ripple effect

way beyond your ability to predict.

Until the pain of staying the same becomes more acute

then the pain of change, nothing happens.


How bad is your pain?

Are you ready to change?


What if the life you really want is hiding right now in your biggest problem, your worst failure and your greatest fear?

How can you face that pain and fear and take one step forward?

I joined mastermind groups that were not doctors but were people who modeled where I wanted to grow.

I began sharing my challenges and dreams with people I could trust and who gave me support and opportunities.


If you wait until you’re ready,

you’ll be waiting until the day you die!


You’ll never be ready.

Are you curious?

Are you willing?

Are you committed?

Are you excited?


Tell us what you are committed to for 2023 by replying here.


Quit living life as if the purpose of life

Is to arrive safely at the 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.

Become part of the solution.

Stop repeating the past.

Start creating the future.

Face your fears.

Fight for your dreams.

Grab the opportunity by the mane and don’t let go!

Live like today is the first day and

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 worshipping what’s right with God.

Dare to fail.

Dare to be different.

Quit holding out.

Quit holding back.

Quit running away.
