When output exceeds income, your upkeep will be your downfall. It’s easy to get caught up in doing and wonder why you end up feeling like you’re failing. You must take time to ensure that you are being filled up. Busyness is a sad excuse for allowing your personal self to become empty, for in the end, everybody loses.… Read the rest

Titles mean very little if we truly understand what life is all about. In the end, people are never remembered for the positions they held, but for what they gave away. Life is about people, so love them, care for them, pour into them, and you will experience the greatest joy that few ever experience.… Read the rest

Do what frees another up, not what necessarily fires you up. I’m not suggesting that we neglect ourselves for the sake of another, but I am saying don’t just live for self and always do what you want. Paul writes, “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too” (Philippians 2:4). When you build another up, he/she will never let you down.… Read the rest

We are wired to worship something; the question is what? I’ve heard it said that we give the greatest amount of time to what we value the most. I can’t say I completely agree with this. But what is true is that our hearts, our passions, reveal a great deal about us. “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of” (Luke 6:45). What has you?… Read the rest

Though he was never ordained to the Catholic priesthood, Francis of Assisi is one of the most venerated religious figures in history. One of most memorable statements was, “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary use words.” Nothing speaks louder than our own everyday lives. People get what they see.… Read the rest

I’ve heard it said that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. So it really comes down to this: either the wallpaper goes or I do. Now, think about that. Success is always about the future you choose to possess. The past is all about the paralysis of pain. So get about the living and what lies ahead rather than focusing on what has already been and cannot be changed.… Read the rest

Every successful leader knows how to make lemonade. Let’s be honest, life is filled with lemons. It’s just plain difficult at times and hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel, but if we’re going to witness the hand of God, then we have to trust, endure, and find a way to make lemonade despite the hand we’ve been dealt.… Read the rest

It’s been said, “The size of your dream determines the size of your God.” Now, I’m not encouraging us to be ridiculous in our belief – just that we don’t limit God with our faith. Jesus said, “According to our faith it shall be done.” Maximize your faith and minimize those fears. Let God be bigger than anything of man.… Read the rest

We must lead with an OPEN MIND. Martha Stewart once said, “Without an open-minded mind, you can never be a great success.” The Bible says, “Cynics look high and low for wisdom – and never find it; the open-minded find it right on their doorstep” (Proverbs 14:6). A true heart of open-mindedness is that we can learn in any situation from any individual person.… Read the rest
