Do Not Cheat Yourself By Doing This!

When we strive to become more aware of us we give ourselves a chance to grow in the areas we need to. 

A friend called me (Cindy) recently with a revelation about some of the individuals she was choosing to spend time with. I passed on an intentional action a mentor shared with me when I found myself in a similar place. He says anytime we step out to grow and change it serves us well to keep this in mind.  I’ll always be growing and changing so that tells me I always need to keep this in mind.  And I want to share it with you!

I also promised to share a story of a time where I failed miserably because I allowed my ego to take over; it was one of those cases where my mouth wrote a check my butt couldn’t cover…

When Matt was wrestling, he and I were extremely consistent with our workout schedules. We would typically lift weights three or four days each week, even during the wrestling season when he had practice every day after...

Do Better or Become Better?

If we’re focused on winning a finite game, our objective will most likely be to do the absolute best we can within the given time frame so our results are better than whoever we’re competing against. And let me be VERY clear here: I love to win! My DRIVEN approach to life can turn nearly everything into a race. (You’re welcome to verify that with Cindy if necessary…)

But being able to differentiate which things require that finite approach where we’re competing to win from the things that are truly more infinite can make a world of difference in what we achieve over the course of time!

In his recent book LeaderSHIFT, John Maxwell shares a story of what changed how he approached his role in ministry and how that shift impacted the results he was able to achieve in every other area of his life from that point forward. I won’t hash out the entire story, you should really read the...
