Adventure

Helen Keller wrote, “life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” She was blind and deaf from the age of 19 months, so it’s a miracle we have heard the name Helen Keller.

If you are reading this, you already possess an advantage over Keller. Can you hear beautiful sounds like music, birds singing or the laughter of a precious child? There’s another.

We have everything we need to make a difference in the world. We might not become world famous, but we don’t need fame to reach and impact others. Start your adventure today and don’t look back…

Work

Companies and countries are experimenting with a four-day work week. Early results show increased productivity by as much as 40%. Perhaps it’s a good idea, but let’s see if these results are sustainable.

Hard work is gratifying. You feel good after putting in a full day of work, knowing you have accomplished something. Weekends are nice for recharging and getting errands done, but I believe we are hardwired to achieve. This is why it feels fulfilling.

Our worldly work should sustain us, allow us to pay our bills, but it isn’t all there is. Do your work honestly, but keep your eye on your true purpose. Your calling might not involve your job…

Numbers

Churches like to count how many people attend. People want their Facebook post to be liked by many. Television programs get renewed if they have enough viewers.

I’m appreciative for every single person who reads my blog or listens to my podcast. Fortunately, my podcast and my blog reach people in over 100 countries around the world. I can’t control it, yet I know God gets the messages to those who need it when they need it. That’s good enough for me…

Offensive

Political correctness has escalated into everything we “can’t say because we might offend someone.” This has caused people to be overly cautious when engaged in conversations or perhaps giving a public speech.

On the other side of the equation, mankind craves deep, authentic talk. People want to feel free to be themselves.

When we connect with someone, we speak from the heart. When you get your heart right, worthwhile words and actions follow…

Fooled!

You have unique gifts and abilities. If you are reading this, your purpose here on earth hasn’t been fulfilled.

The world will tell you that your dreams are crazy, they’re too big. Do not listen to them. Listen for the voice of the Creator. He will open doors for you, knock down hurdles and get you through the inevitable setbacks that lie ahead.

Your vision is yours alone. Others can’t see it, so don’t be fooled by their opinions and beliefs about your life. Get started, and no matter what, keep going…

What Day Is Today?

Every day is recognized for something. A few days again it was “International Cat Day,” while today is “National Trail Mix Day.” Trail Mix? Seriously?

We should remember that each day God gives us life, our purpose should be to bring people into the light. Spreading goodness never goes out of style. Be a positive influence on those around us.

Be a light, no matter what day it is…

Body Language

The best poker players in the world don’t always have the best cards to play. They are the best players because they observe their opponents body language. It’s a skill they developed after years of study.

What about our observations? We can get so wrapped up in ourselves that we might miss something in another person. Watch the eyes of your counterpart when engaging in conversation. The eyes tell everything. Listen with your heart…
