Things in your life will change for the better… whenever you change.

If you worry, you will mess up the day… for you, and possibly for everyone else around you. And you will miss out on all the Great Things life is trying to offer you. But worry will blind your thinking, judgment and vision. Continue reading 4 Unique Ways To Change Your Life For The Better

How You Can Hear GOD’s Voice

Yes! GOD really speaks. GOD has been speaking to and directing mankind… from the Garden of Eden until today. Yet, people often doubt whether we can really hear GOD’s voice? But, somewhere, deep down in the silence of our hearts… GOD does speak.

I believe GOD speaks to us in two very distinct ways – through the Bible and through the Holy Spirit. And, even if He speaks through the Holy Spirit… it will usually lead us right back to the Bible, but with specific applications which are relevant to our lives and circumstances.

It Matters How Pleasantly You Treat YOU… and Others

Being pleasant helps you to be strong in body and mind, and it keeps you young a long time. It’s good medicine. I know it… because I’ve tried it my entire life… and I observe how having a pleasant attitude affects other people in a positive way – when they interact with you.

To be a well-rounded leader… and to live a creative life every day, you have to do creative things, every day. It doesn’t really matter what creative things you do, as long as it’s something – big or small – that will catapult you towards reaching future goals… and building towards your success.

Each day, make it a habit not to judge yourself on your creative output. Live freely… and allow yourself space to be spontaneous. Sometimes your creativity will be on fire. That’s the GOOD NEWS. Other times, it’s not. And those are the times when you just have to relax your mind. Save yourself the grief of stressing. Stressing will do nothing to help you, positively.

Cope With Loss: But Keep Living

Losing a loved one is never easy. No matter who you are… it affects you. It makes you grieve and question GOD. You might ask, “GOD WHY. What did I do to deserve this pain?” In reality, though, it has nothing to do with you at all. Death is a part of Life.

Like many of you, I have lost a sibling, close friends, cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Somehow, though, losing my father put life into perspective. For sure… more than any other loss I have dealt with, his passing brought Death closer to my door steps – and made it more REAL than any other time in my life. It let me know that each day that passes… brings us all ONE DAY and ONE STEP closer to eternity. Therefore, it certainly makes me place my focus on GOD… and appreciate life just a little bit more.
