The death line marks a literal death of vision and, probably, the death of an organization, church, or business. The less you’re prepared mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, (MEPS), the more you’ll see death lines or walls appear.
APPLY RIGOR MATRIX - THE DEATH VALLEY
IN THE JOURNEY OF VISION THERE WILL BE PEAKS OF SUCCESS AND DEATH VALLEYS OF STRUGGLE. LEARN HOW TO AVOID THE DEATH LINE (POINT WHERE MOST PEOPLE QUIT) AND MOVE PAST THE DEATH VALLEY.

THE DEATH LINE
When we hit one (and we all do), regardless of how we feel, we have a choice to make: push through and hang on.
Or, accept defeat and give up.
The majority of people accept defeat. They give up their vision & idea, moving on, hoping create impact through some ‘easier’ course of action.
Yeah, you already thought it. They continue in the same cycle: starting an idea/vision, hitting a death line, accepting defeat, then move on to something else. Wash – rinse – repeat.
This is hard. It feels like trying to swim against the current, waves smashing into your face as you try to get past them.
It will take everything within you to push through these hard times, to create lasting impact in your organization, business or church. Think psychological fitness: MEPS development, bringing you to full maturity.
HOW ABOUT YOU?
So, How about you? What happens when you hit a potential death line?
How do you get through?
Death lines do not have to mark the end.
They are part of the process of growth. While we live on this earth, we will oscillate through seasons of growth and seasons of failure.
THE WAY THROUGH
The way through failure is through it, letting it mature us, learning from it, seeking counsel and mentorship, pressing onward, knowing this is one season, one valley of the many peaks and valleys, on the journey to success.
A word of warning: If you don’t have an actionable plan leading you through these valleys, these death lines will mark the end of your organization, church, or business. The seasons of struggle will become defining, clouding your vision of the future in fog, doubt, anxiety, sabotaging any forward movement or growth.
