You Conform Because You’re Too Afraid Not To

Remember back in the late 80’s when everyone had tight-rolled pant cuffs? If you don’t, then below is a picture of how it looks. Looks pretty ridiculous right? Well…everyone was doing it. And if you didn’t tight-roll you’re the bottom of your pants, then you weren’t cool. So, to be cool, at the age of 11 or 12, I tight-rolled my pants. i.e. I conformed. I knew it looked stupid. I thought it was far from cool. And at that…

Reprogram Your Mind? Only If You Want A Better Life

You do the things you do, the way you do them because you were programmed to do them that way. No, I don’t mean that you’re some computer software that an engineer designed, so you perform whatever tasks programmed. At least, not exactly.   Let me explain.   Science tells us that our brains are not fully developed until about the age 25. Okay, that’s true. We all accept that. However, our sub-conscious closes much earlier.   You see, our…

FAITH—Believe and Succeed

There are 13 steps to manifesting anything you want in life.  Do you know what they are?  Well, in my last blog post we talked about DESIRE being the starting point of all achievement.  Today, we’re going to talk about FAITH. FAITH is the second step towards manifesting anything you want in life.  It doesn’t matter if it’s money, health, love, or material things.  Without FAITH, good luck manifesting anything.  But FAITH is a funny thing.  And it’s hard to…

Desire—The Starting Point For Manifesting The Life You Want

A mentor of mine told me “to get what you want, you have to DESERVE what you want.” That was a little fuzzy and kinda crass at first. But then he went on to explain that the person who wants six pack abs, but sits on the couch and eats potato chips doesn’t deserve six pack abs. Just like the person who wants a million dollars, but can’t save ten dollars doesn’t deserve a million dollars. Neither person will get…

The Story of the Apple Seed

In my opinion, nothing embodies the true meaning of persistence more than plants in their natural environment. Let’s take the apple seed for example. Did you know that it takes approximately eight years for an apple seed to grow into a full size fruit bearing tree (Almanac Staff, 2017)? That means that the seed will be in the ground for a LONG time before it ever bears fruit. Within that apple seed lies the potential to become a 20 foot…

But I can tell you, with absolute certainty, what the next five years of your life will look like by only asking you two questions.   1. What did the past five years of your life look like? 2.

Networking for Introverts? Only If You Must

The purpose of this blog post is to give you three ways to not only survive a networking event, but actually enjoy them a little…

The #1 Reason Christian Businesses Struggle or Fail

When it comes to business success, many Christian business owners seem to have something holding them back. There seems to be some dark force that always persists and gets in the way of a Christian business owner’s success and ultimately plots failure. It sounds counterintuitive. After all, wasn’t your business spirit driven? Aren’t working to help grow God’s kingdom? And don’t you read the Bible every day? So how could you, as a Christian business owner, fail? Well, my friend,…

You Have A Million-Dollar Gift. Now What?

Have you ever given somebody the perfect gift for Christmas only to witness them never use the darn thing? Or how about the time you gave your best friend the perfect gift for his birthday, only to see it thrown in the corner of his garage the next time you came to visit. How did that make you feel? If I had to guess, you were probably a little cheesed off, or maybe even hurt. Well, imagine how your creator…
