So you’re wondering what our secret so success is, how we were able to take our dream of becoming professional exhibition shooters and making it a reality? To be honest, you could read a lot of business, sales, marketing, goal setting, motivational, and inspirational books and never find our secret to success. Most books don’t cover what has led us to where we are.
Aaron and I are brothers, but growing up we were certainly not friends. We are only 4 years apart in age, but we had very little in common. What we did have in common is that we were all about living life for ourselves. We wanted to experience the most fun we could in our lives. That meant we did what we thought would bring us the most enjoyment and we tried not to let anyone get in our way. For some reason, this life of no restriction and the pursuit of self-gratification turned up empty and not satisfying at all. It seemed strange, how could we be doing whatever I want and still not be happy? We wanted something different. It was time for a change…
Aaron broke first, sick of his life, he wanted a new one. Growing up in a church we had heard, that God loves us, that he sent His son Jesus to die for us, and that if we confessed with our mouth and believed in our heart that Jesus is Lord and that God raised him from the dead, we would be saved. So that is exactly what Aaron did. He confessed his sin, admitted his need for a savior from his sin, accepted Jesus into his heart, and he was given a new life.
A few years later, I too was fed up with the status quo. My life was empty and meaningless. I wanted more, but I wasn’t sure where to find it. Then, for the first time while at college I attended a church service. While at this church, it became so clear what was missing from my life and that was Jesus. So just like Aaron had done a few years prior, I accepted Jesus as my savior.
It wasn’t until that point that I even had much of an interest in hunting and shooting. Aaron and I now had a common interest that brought us together. Hunting led into shooting and shooting quickly led into exhibition shooting. As we followed God the doors of opportunity began to open. We knew that we were created for a reason and with unique talents. God gave us the dream of pursuing exhibition shooting and we began to follow that dream. Did it take hard work? Absolutely! Did it take dedication? For Sure! But what it really took it God opening the doors. When we look back at our journey to where we are now, there is no denying God’s hand in it all.
We are amazed at the opportunities that we’ve had and we love what we do, but the only reason we are satisfied is because God has us where we are. Before we lived life how we wanted and contrary to Gods plans and it led to emptiness. If tomorrow, God calls us to something other than exhibition shooting we will follow, because it is only meaningful if it is God’s plan.
So how did we get to where we are? Here’s the secret, are you ready… by the grace of God! In all honesty, our secret is really no secret at all. You can find it in the most popular book of all time, the Bible! If you’re looking for life abundantly, there is only one place to find it and that is in Jesus!
It is our hope that you will choose to accept the amazing life you were created for by following Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Walk into a life that will be far better than anything you could have planned yourself. We guarantee you won’t regret it.
