This Might Change Your Life

Don’t base your beliefs on what others fail to do

undaunted Goucher College
Love this, undaunted.

Don’t base your beliefs on what others fail to do.

Hypocrites make for bad role models.

Truth is, we are all hypocrites.

We wouldn’t need peace and contentment if we were perfect.

Strive to base your belief system of what would make our world, and your life, a beautiful place to live.

Authenticity

Everything speaks

Disney Keynote Speaker
Actions speak louder than words.

 

Everything speaks.

We judge ourselves on our intentions.

Others judge us on our behaviors.

Every person is telling a story about what he or she values.

Be careful what you say and do – because, yes, everyone is watching you and judging you.

Dear Boomers

Is it ok to break the law when it suites you?

Lent reading
Yesterday morning (3rd Sunday of Lent) Father John (standing in background) said the bottom left is his favorite reading of all time.

 

Notes on church donation envelope
Had an idea and wrote it on our weekly donation envelope. .think .differently about leadership, engagement, service, connection, improvement.

 

Is it ok to break the law when it suits you?

What?

Right, it sounds like an obscure question, until it isn’t.

Do you drive the speed limit all the time?

Check me if i’m wrong, but speed limits are backed by scientific research to determine the safest speed on a particular stretch of road.

Safest meaning it saves lives and minimizes physical damage.

Yet i don’t know a single person who always drives the speed limit.

So i stopped exceeding the speed limit years ago.

i couldn’t stand my hypocrisy.

And, driving the speed limit reduces stress in unimaginable ways.

Unanswered Questions?

How poor must you be before you can stop serving others?

JFK quote
Was oblivious to JFK’s death anniversary yesterday, November 22, 2017.

 

 

How poor must you be before you can stop serving others?

As we age and decline, at what point should serving others become a one-way street?

Prayers Please

May we all find the balance

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers

May i (may we all) find the balance between pushing myself versus pushing others.

When you push yourself, you are perceived by many to be ambitious and determined. You might also be perceived as inspiring (or a workaholic).

When you push others, you are being perceived by many to be condescending and judgemental. You might also be perceived as egotistical (or a meddler).

Find the balance.

i’ve spent a lifetime (including yesterday and today) identifying my blindspots, inconsistencies, and flaws.

There was a time when it was painful. Now i thrive on it.

Not everyone is in this place. Not everyone has a desire to ever go there.

Find the balance.

Surrender to the Universe and follow your heart, striving always to stay humble and kind.

Being perfectly imperfect, i continue to work hard to be an example and not a warning.
