Those small, flash moments show our true character. Sometimes they prove us worthy. Other times they show us how to improve. After we’ve grown for a while, it can become difficult to find new ways to be better people. All you need is a surprise moment of rage to uncover your next weakness to address.
So, those moments really serve a dual purpose. You’re bound to get something out of how you respond in the heat of the moment. We can take steps to get our minds right, by not mulling over negativity. But, surprises will take us by surprise. · · · →
One of the secret sources of power is “not wasting”. We waste our energy in many ways, and one of them is talking too much. You know those people who rarely say a word and rarely enjoy jabber mouths? There is a reason they think that way.
When we share our feelings, it releases an inner energy. Call it “chi”; call it “willpower”. Sharing our feelings un-dams the river clogged up inside. But, do you want to release all that potential power? Keeping our thoughts to ourselves isn’t always a refusal to accept love. Sometimes, it’s just about turning turbines. · · · →
How long does time take to heal? Some problems can’t be solved overnight, they just take time. But, it doesn’t always need to take as long as we might think.
Israel razed Jericho in seven days, but it took forty years to get there. Those forty years in the desert weren’t necessary; they were completely optional. Israel could have entered Canaan and started kicking butt right away. Instead, they made a choice and that choice added time.
The actual work might only take a week. What takes up most of our time is us waiting to make up our minds. · · · →
One of the keys to moving forward is to get yourself sorted. The world won’t want you as long as you’re a basket case. If your wheels won’t go where the steering wheel steers them, you’ll probably crash before you get too far anyway. It’s not the road that’s so crooked; it’s you.
So, why don’t we sort ourselves? Do we not have enough time? Are we so busy using broken equipment to fix a mess made by broken equipment that we can’t fix the broken equipment? It’s faster to take a deep breath, read, reflect, counsel, and sort yourself. · · · →
