Consistency

To be consistent means to be unchanging in nature. But what about people? Oftentimes people change for the crowd they are in. They are one way at work, another way at home and even another when with friends. You never know who you’re gonna get!

Focus on getting to know who you are at your core being. Find comfort in that, knowing you were created by God exactly how He wanted you to be. Then don’t change yourself to fit in with whoever you are with. Be yourself, consistently…

Garbage

We remove garbage from our homes regularly, right? If we don’t, things turn ugly. And smelly!

This goes for what we allow to stay in our minds and hearts, too. Bitterness, hate and anger will destroy us from within. These character traits will have a major impact on the way we communicate with others as well.

If you are holding on to anything that’s preventing you from being your best, pray to God to remove them from you. He will, I promise. The self work will not be easy, but anything worthwhile rarely comes to us easily…

Instant

We have instant coffee, microwave food, Instacart grocery delivery, and instant messaging! We have gotten accustomed to living life at the speed of light.

Life takes work. We must apply ourselves to earn what we gain. Nothing is guaranteed, nor should it be. We make incremental progress daily to achieve bigger gains in the future.

The truth is, we only value what we earn, and rarely does anything great happen in an instant…

Emotions

In the past year, I have noticed a change in my emotions, a good change. For years, I stuffed them down because as a child I wasn’t allowed to express any emotions unless they were positive. My parents would force me to put a smile on my face, even when I was raging inside. This carried over into adulthood.

I’m allowing my emotions to surface, and they are complying! Feeling something is good. It’s still a little uncomfortable for me, but growth comes when we visit the discomfort zone…

The Way

We all have our rituals. For example, I drink coffee every morning. It’s more a habit than a rite, but I do it daily.

We can become set in our ways. Neural pathways are strong. Let’s be aware that the way we have done things in the past might be ready for change. New, innovative methods should be embraced, not avoided.

Keep your mind open. Change is inevitable…

Paradise

This morning I woke up in paradise. I’m in Cancun to give a speech on what I call three pillars of life. These are three things we need in our lives. They are forgiveness, acceptance and gratitude.

If you are a person who prays, please pray for me that my message resonates with my audience, that someone finds forgiveness in their heart for a past grievance. My speech is tomorrow’s keynote address…

Inventory

Take a good look at yourself. Make a list of your talents and strengths. Thank the Creator for giving them to you.

When you focus on what you have instead of what others have, your thoughts align with your purpose. Coveting a talent someone else has takes away from your joy in the moment. God hardwired you exactly the way He wanted you. Go with it!

All of us are unique. It’s time to put your uniqueness on display…
