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
