Fear…

Fear can actually be a good thing. Healthy fear can save our lives. As an example, think about the times you’ve met someone and they give you a creepy vibe. You can’t explain it, it just is. Avoiding that person is usually the wisest choice.

Unhealthy fear can paralyze you. You imagine the worst so you hide, avoid and deny the situation exists. Your fears become your god.

So how do we break through them? You have heard it before, you face your fears. Head on. Straight up. Maybe this time you decide to listen to the call and fight through what previously held you down. Your confidence grows. Your inner light shines. You realize this freedom you thought was only available to others has been there for you the whole time. Do it! Show the world the real you…#heart #drive #desire #purpose #freedom #passion #connection #encouragement #fearless #love #inspiration

Solutions…

Sometimes when I think about the challenges our world faces I become small and overwhelmed. It bothers me that in our world we have people who are hungry, scared, lonely, oppressed and overlooked. We have people who are discriminated against, isolated because they are “different.” Yet, all of us are different. Will we allow fear to prevent us from connecting with others? We will solve every problem we have when enough people get pissed off and say, “no more!” Let’s focus on solving our challenges. Together we are better. Ronald Reagan said, “We can’t help everyone, but everybody can help someone.” Let’s begin…#heart #drive #desire #purpose #passion #connection #encouragement #bebest #love

Pain…

Pain can be a good thing. We feel pain when we’re lifting weights as a warning from our bodies we are lifting with improper form. Correct the form, pain goes away. But many people are holding onto past hurts. They wallow in anger, bitterness and resentment, shortening their lives while compromising their ability to live fully today. You can release your painful past, turning it into fuel for resilience. Want to experience a pain-free life? Start by practicing gratitude…#heart #drive #desire #purpose #connection #passion #gratitude #pain #resilience #perseverance #encouragement #love

Begin…

I’ve seen many people who want to start something new. Their preparation goes on and on, but all their well-intentioned preparations never turn into taking action. When you have a dream planted in your heart, this puts you on the path of your life’s purpose; your destiny. Preparing is good, but you’ve gotta step off the ledge in faith, always keeping your mind focused on where you want to be. Visualize it. Feel it. Expect challenges. You don’t need to have everything figured out before you begin. Just begin…#heart #drive #desire #fearless #growth #purpose #passion #connection #encouragement #love

Leadership…

What kind of person comes to mind when you think of a leader?

The greatest leaders in history, Churchill, Kennedy, Reagan and others realized so much more could be accomplished if you don’t care who gets the credit. Leaders lead by showing compassion and humility, meaning they will do anything they ask of you without hesitation. Weak people lead by dictating orders, refusing to entertain ideas from anyone else.

Do you want to lead others? Begin with a humble spirit. Humility doesn’t mean thinking less of yourself. Humility means thinking of yourself less…#heart #connection #purpose #leadership #compassion #love #drive #desire #passion #encouragement #inspiration #humility #grind #hustle #encourageothers

Time…

Who do you hang out with? Do you find your conversations with them engaging, or are they pointing out problems and filling your life with negative vibes? Our time is our most precious commodity. We only have so much time to make a difference in this world. Our friends should be people who inspire and bring out the best in us. Further, we have an obligation to do the same for them. Be protective of your time. It’s better to spend time alone with a great book than wasting your time with the wrong people…#heart #time #purpose #passion #drive #desire #love #others #encouragement #connection #push #yourself

Obstacles…

Obstacles are defined as “a thing that hinders progress.” The biggest obstacle we possess is between our ears. When we are in pursuit of a worthwhile goal, we hear voices telling us we aren’t good enough, questioning what our friends will say, reminding us culture says we should try to fit in and not stand out, guilt-tripping us into submitting to what others want for our lives. The road to fulfillment truly is the road less traveled. No one said it would be easy. You will be lonely, tired, frustrated, and questioning yourself all at the same time. Expect it, but don’t give in to the temptation to quit working through them. Refuse to give up…#heart ##drive #desire #purpose #connection #perseverance #resilience #live #fulfillment #encouragement #love #encourageothers

Purpose…

Have you ever noticed how many people you encounter in life who aren’t smiling? Take notice of people you share an elevator with, drive alongside or see in other public places. My observation is, people are merely existing through life rather than living fully. All of us were born with a greater purpose to fulfill. When we aren’t pursuing our purpose, we can get stuck in a rut. But we aren’t stuck! We have the key to freedom: our minds. Take time daily to get quiet, ask The Creator to show you your purpose. Then, be willing to get out of your rut, your comfort zone and live a fulfilling life. It all begins with one brave step in a new direction…#heart #connection #purpose #drive #desire #encouragement #live #fulfillment #encourageothers #inspiration #love

Be A Light…

My daily prayer is this: “Use me. Work through me. Through my writings and through my words. Through my actions and through my deeds. Let me be a light in this dark world.” Feel free to use this as your own. Be prepared, though. God will answer it…#heart #connection #drive #desire #purpose #encouragement #pray #believe #light #love #others
