Water always wins

Waves come at us daily in the form of circumstances.

Fighting with life’s waves leaves you all wet.

Resisting life’s waves will break you.

Surfing life’s waves will thrill you.

Life detour God’s wake up call

detour-44162_640Sometimes we end up somewhere different than we intended.

Detours are Gods way of getting our attention to check the road we are on and make course corrections.

Don’t dismiss the detour, embrace the change of scenery.

Ask yourself the simple question, “What can I take away from this detour?”.

One Thing Application:

When was the last time you encountered a life detour? Were you made aware of a course correction during that time?

Kill the cul-de-sac 

Cul-de-sacs stunt growth.

To kill the cul-de-sac you have to go back to the beginning to start again.

Sometimes reverse is progress.

Cul-de-sacs frustrate the one driving and makes passengers car sick.

Cul-de-sacs exist so you will not stay there.

Choose to exit the cul-de-sac the way you came in and get back on the road of life.

One Thing Application:

Have you ever experienced the round and round experience of a cul-de-sac? I see this most often in workplaces where people are frustrated by the exact same problems everyday. Relationships are a breeding ground for cul-de-sacs as well. Share a time when you were caught in a cul-de-sac and explain how you got out.

Comfortable being uncomfortable

Routines create ruts which over time can become shallow graves. 



Choose one thing in your life that you KNOW will make you uncomfortable and do it.

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

Question: If you do not like where you are today what needs to change? 

Once you make up your mind to press play on your decision a release of adrenaline will shoot through your entire body like the fireworks before a football game, it’s the kickoff.

You will find that it never becomes comfortable to do hard things but you can learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable.

One Thing Application:

What is one crazy goal you can set before you? I chose to run a marathon and did it! How about you? Share here.
