Growing Pains

Our biggest obstacles are always close to our hearts, they are our excuses. We embrace them because they are easy to believe, soothing,  and hard to let go. Excuses temporarily relieve the pain of accountability. The suffering that comes when we choose to be responsible for every aspect of our life is the same hurt that enables us to fulfill our potential, to grow, and to find out what we really are capable of. Without the growing pains, we will never become whole.

Needing It

Your passion should seem to others as an addiction. Even though you are in control, everyone else must think you have no other option but to follow your purpose. Because once you believe that version of the story yourself, you will not let anything stop you from fulfilling it. Just like a drowning man needs air, we all must find and follow our purpose.

Better Questions

Asking the right questions opens all the right doors. If you are confident enough to ask vulnerable questions, you will be able to serve others better, help yourself, and create growth. Questions, when asked correctly, are evidence of curiosity.  Concern, Care, and Curiosity drive all true relationships. Relationships drive success. Learn to ask better questions.

Made By Choice

While everyone is born, everyone is also made. What we are is not always who we are. Leaders are made, scientists are made, athletes are made, friends are made, relationships are made. While we were born one way, we can make ourselves into anything we want – both good and bad. Our choice is what matters.

Decide & Do

Decisions lead to actions. The only way to make any type of transformation is for the current actions to be different than the previous ones. This requires different decisions. In essence, what we decide is what we do, what we do is what we become, what we become is a reflection then of who we are and what we think.
