I think at times we all question ourselves & our ability to successfully navigate through all of the trials & tribulations of life. Am I strong enough… smart enough… good enough? We are faced with some pretty tough stuff sometimes, yet here we are… we’re still standing! I feel like a part of my purpose here is to help people see & understand that they are stronger than they know… smarter than they think… & that every single one of us is good enough to rise above it all & succeed at life. The goal for today: you’re here for a reason & you were sent here with the tools to fulfill your intended purpose; dig deep & I promise you will find an unlimited source of strength, wisdom & heart! Have a great day everybody!
There came a time in my life when I had no choice but to admit that I really didn’t know how to live. And although it was an uncomfortable admission… it opened my mind & encouraged me to learn how to do it Right. Since then, I have learned a lot; I definitely don’t know it all & I certainly don’t practice what I do know perfectly… but when I am living Right, some pretty amazing shit usually happens. The goal for today: be humble enough to admit you don’t know it all… motivated enough to learn… courageous enough live Right… & committed enough to help others do the same! Have a great day everybody!
Let’s be honest with ourselves about a few things: 1) Anger never feels as good as we think it will. 2) Selfishness never gets us what we really want. 3) Dishonesty only makes life harder & more stressful. 4) We are ALL afraid of something.
The Truth is: 1) I should Love people unconditionally & stop wasting time wondering if they “deserve” it. 2) I should give a shit about somebody other than myself once in a while. 3) I should tell the Truth rather than dream up 10 more lies to cover up the first one. 4) I should rise above fear & live a more faithful & courageous life. The goal for today: live by the Truth! Have a great day everybody!
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way” ~Unknown. Think about the life you have lived. Think about the hundreds of times you have accomplished things you thought you couldn’t do. And then think about how good it felt to achieve some of those seemingly impossible goals. Now stop saying “I can’t”… because it simply isn’t true. You can… & you will conquer any & all challenges that come your way, once you want something bad enough to put your whole heart into it. The goal for today: know that with faith, courage & fortitude… the world is yours! Have a great day everybody!
“For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.” ~Psalms 18:29. Where does Strength come from? Where does Courage come from? Where do we find Wisdom, Security, Freedom & Love? All of these things come from a place deep down inside of us all. The place that enables us to do things we aren’t supposed to be able to do. The place that creates the idea that we should never retreat, never surrender, never give in, and never give up. The goal for today: know that that place is your heart… & your heart is God’s home! Have a great day everybody!
“Fortitude is the marshal of thought, the armor of the will, and the fort of reason” ~Sir Francis Bacon. Fortitude is defined as courage in the face of true adversity. So, when the shit hits the fan… will I look to God to govern my thoughts? Can I line my will up with God’s? And once the mind is right & the heart is willing… will I have the strength & courage to follow my God given reason & do what’s Right? That may sound like a tall order, but we all have that strength & courage in us… we were born with it. The goal for today: strength… courage… God! Have a great day everybody!
Do yourself & those around you a favor & forgive someone today. We tend to view forgiveness as some sort of submissive act, but it’s quite the opposite. There is no greater show of strength & courage than forgiveness. Being a big enough person to forgive is a very powerful demonstration of strength. I have witnessed acts of forgiveness that some wouldn’t even believe. The goal for today: forgive the person who has wronged you most in life… & watch your strength bring peace to all who see it! Have a great day everybody!
