#228: The Most Powerful Word People Often Say But Rarely Mean

Play

 

Five years ago I embarked on an unknown journey. My sense was I was being invited to a place I had never been, and I was filled with uncertainty. (Which is the anatomy of an adventure!)

I said “yes”, even though I didn’t have all – or any – of the answers.  When I said “yes”, I did so without hesitation, without reservation, and with all of my heart.

As a result, I’m living a life I never knew possible. There is, however, a next chapter in the story.

Does your “YES” truly mean “YES”?

Do You Know Who You Are?

Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I? Why am I here?” That is the multimillion-dollar question, and it’s a question most people never answer. Unfortunately, so many go about life never diving deep to discover who they are, what their purpose is, what their lane is. It’s such an important part of this strategic living process.

Every person is born with a unique design, a unique assignment, and unique destiny. Every person inherently possesses a particular thing they are to contribute to this life and they have the capacity to do it. I don’t believe there’s a person born into any circumstance who is absent of capacity to be great, to do great things, or make significant contributions. 

You are the way you are because that’s the way you want to be. If you really wanted to be any different, you would be in the process of changing right now.

I always have a lot going on, whether it’s projects, tasks, to-dos, or even having fun. I tend to take on more than I can effectively finish. Less is more. Simplifying is multiplying.

#226: Burn The Boats

The Attitude And Posture Of Being All In

Play

We are creatures of comfort, craving the familiar and “normal”. We unconsciously defend – even rationalize – our positions and attitudes as a way of avoiding exposure or risk.

Most times, however, you have to leave safety and security behind and risk everything to commit your life and future to your unknown destiny.

Your Most Critical Tool In Breaking Barriers To Success

Personal healing is the most often overlooked and most misunderstood element concerning personal success and prosperity. Most people don’t think much about this idea of personal healing or the need for it.

There’s an ancient text saying something to the effect of we will prosper and succeed, we will be well, proportionate to the condition of our heart. Therefore, the condition of our inner self, even the unconscious places, determines the outcomes of our life. Whether we’re going to be prosperous and do well in life, or whether we’re going to struggle and constantly be running into brick walls; all of those things are tied back to the condition of our inner self.

Whether you’re in business, education, or talking about family or relationships, personal healing is critical to your success.
