Build a Road To Get You Where You Are Going

Do you ever have a good idea? You know, something that formed in the back of your brain and wouldn’t lay still. It worked and grew until it sat in the forefront of your mind and demanded your attention. This idea was not just for you. It was meant to benefit others as well.

You know what I mean right? Something could be done to help another individual improve in life and it was right there in your mind. The details are there, the process (though a little muddy) was obvious. All that remained was a little bit of planning to put it all together.

7 Things Your Wife / Girlfriend Wishes You Knew

This post was originally written by Kyle Boureston over at Mantelligence. As soon as I read this, I immediately identified a handful of things that I could be doing better for my wife and I thought, “Hey if I can benefit from this, I bet my Strange Lifer’s can as well.” Even if you are already married, this applies. After all, we never stop dating our spouse. Here you go. Continue reading “7 Things Your Wife / Girlfriend Wishes You Knew”

Our Emotions Will Fail Us

I feel really down today.

Like, I didn’t even want to get out of bed and go to church this morning. I don’t know if it’s the weather (currently rainy), or me…. or maybe both. Whatever the case, I am really struggling to be present today. Some things, in life, haven’t been lining up exactly as I planned lately, and that could be part of it. Who knows?

My mindset today is one of counting down the minutes until I can go back to bed. Continue reading “Our Emotions Will Fail Us”

What’s Your Story?

I have lost track of the number of times that I have heard someone say, “they just don’t know me.” The message behind that statement: Someone has made an assumption about the type of person that you are. You don’t agree with their statement. They have either misread you or created an assumption based upon what little they do know, perhaps just your name. Whatever the case, they do not really know your story. Continue reading “What’s Your Story?”

Alive or Dead?

Robert Cooper says, “Do you know what it’s like to feel fully alive? Few people do. What if you could experience your best day every day? What if you could consistently feel as alert, vibrant, confident, focused, enthusiastic, and in touch with yourself as you do when you’re at the peak of your energy?”

Doesn’t that sound appealing to you?

What would you do to reach that point? Or, is it even possible? Continue reading “Alive or Dead?”

What Lies at the Heart of the Matter?

One of the greatest things that we have to offer is our ability to help those around us. More so than building up wealth and influence for ourselves, we should, as a society, be attempting to be of benefit to our neighbors and friends. Yet, many of us are left questioning how to do this. How can we set up our daily routine so that we set up enough time to help out someone else? H.B. London and Neil Wiseman give us a glimpse of the answer in their book, The Heart of a Great Pastor.

Debt Will Drown You

Our nation is not in the best place financially. Of course, this is no new secret and has been a huge problem for decades now. Debt piles onto even more debt as funding is created for programs where there was not already money available. The amount of debt that our country has accumulated has reached a point of being unfathomable. The average person cannot wrap their heads around the number. We are left wondering, “How in the world can this ever be fixed?” The conclusion that most people come to is that is simply can’t. Continue reading “Debt Will Drown You”
