When God wanted to express how He felt about us, He didn’t send a love letter.

He didn’t send flowers, chocolates and a card.

He didn’t read us a soppy poem or write our names in the sky.

He sent his son, Jesus.

When something doesn’t meet your initial expectations, it’s OK to be dissatisfied.

But don’t stay in that mindset for too long, use it to make changes.

Dissatisfied with a process at work? Make it better.

Not happy with your relationships? Become a better spouse/partner/friend.

Sometimes, we place limitations on ourselves, imagining obstacles that aren’t really there.

We’re afraid.

Of what? It doesn’t matter.

Our fears are imaginary fences that block us in without good reason.

We think that they are there to protect us, when in fact, they just hold us back.

We lack confidence.  Read the rest of this entry »

Snails love lettuce.

They may move slowly, but they always find a way to get to their destination.

When you see them move, they don’t seem to be making much progress, but they always seem to make it to the lettuce in your garden, chomping away contently.

They understand that the lettuce won’t come to them, so every night, they venture out to get their meal.

You have within you a valuable set of skills.

There are perspectives that you have that we need to hear.

There are goals that you haven’t yet achieved, dreams that haven’t yet been realised, aspirations that have been held back.

You have been hiding in the background, limiting yourself and wondering if you can really make a positive difference in the world.

Today, I want to encourage you to turn on the tap.

You’ve done it once, can you do it again?

Do you still have the hunger, the desire, the yearning?

Now that you know how much work it takes to get to the top, are you willing to start the climb once more?

Are you motivated by the same drivers, or do you need new ones?

Is the fire still raging, or have the flames diminished slightly?

Before the iconic battle between David and Goliath takes place, there’s an important episode.

After David volunteered to take on the giant, King Saul offered his armour and sword for the fight.

David put them on and walked around, but he felt uncomfortable.

“I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” (1 Samuel 17:39b)

He didn’t need the king’s equipment, he just had to use what he already had.

Under normal circumstances, my personality is quite laid back and fun-loving, but there are times when I let life get on top of me.

Perhaps the kids have been annoying, I’ve had a few bad clients in a row or I’ve been wrestling with a couple of minor health issues.

It can too easily turn me into a grumpy old bear who scowls more than he smiles.

Whatever the excuse, it needs to change.

Before you start moving towards your goals, you have to believe that they are possible.

Yes, it’s important that they are challenging and stretching, but you still have to believe in your heart that you can do it.

If you don’t, it’s over before you start.

You won’t make your business successful if you don’t think that you can.

You will lose the sale if you can’t imagine closing the deal.
