Part 3: Choosing Your Character

In your story, you are the main character. Your dreams, goals, and vision should be the centerpiece of your life.  However, sometimes the characters take the story off track.  This can be caused by both the main character (you) or the supporting cast (others).  Either way, it’s your responsibility to ensure your story stays focused; getting […]

What’s Your Story

This past weekend I was honored to teach at Days of  Grace Fellowship in Morton for their Sunday services.  I received so much positive feedback I am going to post some of the highlights on my presentation for you here. Don’t worry, I’m not going to text dump the entire thing.  In fact, it will be […]

Live Your Story

Some stories will captivate people for generations.  Will your story be one of those stories? Live your story so it will be worth telling.  Live your story like it will be told to the generations. Imagine if more people took the time to think through their daily routines, knowing one day what they do will be told as […]

Need Permission?

Often when we need to make tough decisions we look for the permission or approval of our leaders before we make decisions.  Not that there is anything inherently wrong with asking opinions or getting counsel on a subject, but I think many people want a scapegoat in case the decision produces a less desirable outcome.  This […]

There can be great value in putting your head down and plowing through a task or job. However, refusing to reflect and plan can lead to burnout. Time seems to move at a dizzying pace.  In this environment many people jump from task to task without taking the time to have a healthy evaluation of what […]

It takes persistence, revision, and strategy to frame a good message.  A […]

Live Differently

“The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.” – Howard Zinn   Every day corruption is exposed.  In business, politics, and within families it does damage to everyone involved.  Reputations are […]

Find Your Fuel

Self awareness is something we could all use more of.  Knowing what makes us tick is a key element to our success. Know what inspires you.  Know what fuels you.  Know what releases your creative potential. Find your creative fuel! Everyone is wired differently.  There is no one size fits all solution to life’s problems.  What works […]

Understanding

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” – Albert Einstein   There are several sides to every story.  People perceive every scene differently.  Take for example, a group of students in a lecture.  Compare their notes at the end and you could several versions of notes that may cross paths on some points, […]
