Most of us focus on our weaknesses so we can become well rounded. The problem with well rounded is that it makes you average. We need to be aware of our weaknesses, but also focus on our strengths.

This is a strength finder assessment. I’d recommend doing the top 5. I found it to be worth it

The new year is here and by now we are already making those New Year’s Resolutions.  To help inspire you and make those choices a little easier I want to share a couple of quotes.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” (As told to Gil Bailie by Howard Thurman)

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt

In summary, I hope you each of you live this year with passion and enthusiasm, and find what makes you come alive.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
My church just started a series on marriage so I’ve been reflecting on what it takes to have a good marriage.  It starts with time.  When it comes to time and our spouse, we fall into one of three camps:

  1. You can’t get enough of your spouse: this would commonly be thought of the infatuation or dating phase but I like to believe it does not have to be limited to that.  This is where you just want to be around your spouse as much as possible because of they joy you get from them
  2. You’re not getting enough of your spouse: This would be where you fill your life up with so much stuff/activities (some that matter very much like kids and others that do not…you fill in the blank) that you don’t have time for each other and you essentially become roommates
  3. You’ve had enough of your spouse: I’m sure you can imagine what this entails and you don’t want to be here.

We need to be investing in our marriage (relationships for those not married).  We take 1+ hour a few days a week to invest in our health/fitness but what do we do on the days off?  I sleep in.  But I could get up at 5AM like I do on beat down days and read a book on marriage or do something thoughtful for my wife.  What else are we investing time in that may not be as important as our marriage?  I believe that all marriages are in one of three states/stages

  1. Thriving: knowing can go wrong, neither of you can do any wrong by the other.  This is usually experienced during dating and the few years after marriage (or until you have kids….am I right?!…)
  2. Striving: You know things aren’t the way you want them to be and your are working to make them better
  3. Surviving: This is the “let’s just get through this without divorce or killing each other” phase

Start investing in your marriages/relations ships so you can experience the joy of a thriving marriage with someone you cannot get enough of!

Kind of a silly thing, but was listening to a workmate learn the hard lesson of not going to the dealership for tire issues and payed way more than needed for a new tire when a patch would have worked. Reminded me of the importance of learning from other people’s experiences, mistakes, and wisdom. Sometimes, it is super practical like the tire thing. But the ultimate example of this is Christ. We can trust His testimony having proved Himself via miracles and being vindicated through His resurrection which hundreds of people witnessed. If we are to learn from anyone’s experiences, it is His.
