People who succeed know one important fact; In order to get to success, they must experience failure on a massive scale. For anyone who has read self-help or motivational books, I will not go through the pains of boring you about the countless Hall of Fame baseball players who have failed over 75% of the time (and these guys are the best at what they do). You are probably not a professional baseball player, nor is it likely that you are trying to secure a spot for yourself in the Hall of Fame. The point is, that the best of the best know this “secret.” …
God is in charge of everything and wants you to love different than the world. He has a plan and a purpose for your life that is far better than anything you could have ever imagined. Here’s how to follow God now.
I have identified three types of people. Most people fall into one of the following categories concerning their generosity:
I have also seen the effects of these particular lifestyles on the results people get in all areas of life. “The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others – ignoring God – harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.”xl …
We learn to walk by the time we are one; we learn to ride a bike by the time we’re six, about the same time we are starting school. We learn to drive by the time we are sixteen. We get married, have kids and then retire. We do this, most of us anyway, without learning about success. I’m talking about real success. Some of us may have learned society’s version of success and that is precisely why we are unhappy and unfulfilled. Of true success, we know very little or even nothing. Many of us never learn what success is and what it isn’t. We don’t understand what failure is or what it isn’t. …

What do you believe?
You can believe anything you want; you can hold it tight.
You can believe with all your might.

It still won’t make what you believe right.
What is untrue will remain untrue!

It’s a great day when you can say
I worked hard today. …
The first day of Autumn was sometime last week. We are definitely not experiencing those
nice brisk mornings followed by a comfortable day. No it is hot and humid here in Connecticut. Although, the leaves are changing rapidly… they say that’s because we are in a drought. I love fall weather and I can’t wait until it finally arrives for the season. …
It’s been feeling a lot like Christmas. Yesterday I had to run some errands which brought me into two major retail stores. Both Walmart and Costco have already set up their holiday displays. So what about Halloween? What about Thanksgiving?
Then this morning it was kind of cold in the house so I had to get a fire going in the wood stove to warm everything up. As I was going through my normal routine I started getting that “Christmas feeling.” Anyone who loves Christmas as much as I do will understand! …
