Please, You Don’t Want To Copy Me (Vita. Consilio. 01.22.17)

VC012217

We stand in awe of those people who we have labeled “celebrities” or “geniuses” or “gurus” or “moguls” or whatever word we have created to call those who are highly productive and successful. We recognize good work, innovation, and creativity. In a way, it can serve as a healthy motivation for us to step out and fulfill our own dreams. Continue reading

If you wait for opportunity, you’ll never get it. Opportunity is more often than not, something that you fight to create, not something given to you. It takes courage to get up every morning, rain or shine, and pursue your dreams. Dreaming is easy. It’s the path we have to take to turn our dreams into reality that makes most of us quit. That path is not easy like the dream in our head. But it’s what must be done and it’s worth it.

We’ve been conditioned to believe that other people have some sort of power over our lives. Governmental leaders, spiritual leaders, community leaders, and any type of “leader” you can think of really has no more power than you do. Therefore, you shouldn’t put your hope and faith in them. Sure, they can help you but they can’t control you unless you let them. You have the strength to stand on your own and fight for yourself. Nothing about your life depends on other people. It’s your life. It’s all up to you. Own it.

Life isn’t just about an end, or even just about a beginning. If it were all about the end, we would only read the last chapter of books, only take final exams in college, and only eat dessert at dinnertime. It’s not just about the end. It’s about all of the moments and minutes in between the beginning and the end. How are we making those moments matter? What are we doing to make those minutes count? Addicted to the destination, we forget to enjoy the ride.

Stop Being Judgmental — A Word on Heart Opening (People. Matter. 01.17.17)

PM011717

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of my all-time favorite theologians. If you’re not all into religion, though, he’s still one of the best writers on theological subjects and life in general. It turns out that he had something profound to say about being judgmental too… Continue reading

Stop getting mad when things don’t go your way. Sometimes we’re not given what we want at the time we want it because something better is already planned. And sometimes we never get the wonderful things that are gift-wrapped with our names on it because we refuse to trust and practice patience. The lesson’s quite simple. You wouldn’t give a child everything he wants even if he threw a tantrum. Life treats you and I the same way.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

You’re Not Everyone’s Cup of Coffee (Soul. Musings. 01/12/17)

SM011217

The world is filled with people who are looking for validation and approval of who they are. It’s natural to want to be liked, loved, and valued. As the great Austrian psychologist, Alfred Adler once said, “Genuine human connection is as essential to our existence as air and water.” Continue reading

Every difficulty has a lesson embedded in it. It isn’t always that we’ve made a mistake or done something wrong. Sometimes, it’s because we’re on the right path and headed in the right direction but we need to endure a test of strength to see what we’re really made of. Reaching that obstacle places us at a point of decision. And it is the decisions that we make in the valley of difficulty that tend to teach us the most important lessons.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.
