I was petrified. I wanted to run. It was more than 25 years ago, but I remember it like yesterday. I was teaching my first class.

Is Fear worse than Murder?

The Bible tells us "not to fear" 365 times.  That's one for every day of the year.  It must be very important.

It also says, "do not kill". By my count, it's said a lot less often.

  • Is disobey one worse than the other?
  • Are both sinful?

This is a discussion I've had often with myself and others.  As I see it:

  • Murder seems to be a Justice issue; how we relate with each other.
  • Fear is more of a Righteousness issue; how we relate to…

Have you fallen off the grid?

Hey, if you are anything like me sometimes you "fall off the grid." You give up on the dream, you quit trying - mainly because of life.
We have home, work, kids, interruptions, etc. Then we get embarrassed to re-engage. But that's exactly what we must do. We get back in the game. Here at 48days.net you won't get hassled about the past but encouraged by the future. Scared- keep engaged.

The Price of Perfectionism

If you’re a perfectionist you likely don’t realize how much it costs you.

I’m all for excellence. But perfectionism is an entirely different animal. We live in an imperfect world. Constantly chasing perfection is an enormous waste of time. Perfectionism robs you of precious time. Time is what life is made…

The Fear Factor: Networking for Introverts


Nothing strikes more fear into the heart of an introvert than the advice: Go forth and network to grow your business, get a job or just be successful in whatever endeavor you are attempting.

I should know.

Battle Fear By Assessing Risk

If you are paralyzed by fear you should considering assessing and quantifying the risks.

1. Identify the risk. Describe it in detail and document specifics.

2. Ask yourself: "So what?" You've identified a risk, but assess the implications of the risk. For example, if your business doesn't bring in enough income you won't be able to pay your rent.

3. Consider ways mitigate the risk. If your business isn't covering your rent, how long are you willing to wait? If it's 6… Continue

Are You Fully Alive?

I've been reading my friend, Ken Davis' book, Fully Alive.  If you have ever spent time with Ken you would know that this guy lives what he preaches.  He has a lot of guts.  Makes me wonder what he has left on his bucket list!  I have enjoyed the book.  His personal stories of failure and triumph, his motivational messages and his down-to-earth and very doable challenges to the reader…

Are You Married?

August will mark my sixth wedding anniversary. My wife is a phenomenal blessing to me and I thank God for her. Let me add that I'm a slow learner but eventually I get it. The "get it" I'm talking about here is listening to my wife. And I'm sure that the get it that I think I got is not really done yet but I'll take the small steps of success any time.

I recently had an idea and my wife said "that fits your personality." I was stunned. I've been on a a business path alone for the past…

Tips For Overcoming Fear and Becoming Fearless

It was a delight to get to spend time with you one on one as I was the "guest" this week about overcoming fear and becoming fearless.

Let's face it, we all have fears that we need to face and deal with in our everyday life. I have my fair share of fears too that have left me gasping for air and questioning myself. However, I have learned how to deal and overcome fear head-on which helped me get out from the muck. For people who have been struggling and prisoned by their fear, this…

My granddaughter, Clara, is very creative.  She is almost seven years old and I learn something from her every time we get into art projects. Which is often.  She has been part of our art classes at the Sanctuary since she was four and she is always an inspiration to us adults in the class because of her fearlessness in attacking any art project.  She just starts it...and no matter what happens she finishes.  Often she has stood up in class and…

New Ideas

About this time last year it dawned on me that I needed new ideas. I was doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. I needed new ways of thinking. I have a BA in Christian Ministries and I continue to read, but I had never put serious thought into career direction or plans. I've always worked hard, but I was stuck. I was a roofing contractor in my early 20's and did well at that but it was not a long term passion of mine. I spent four plus years in the electrical…

The question "Can I really do this?"

We all have dreams and visions. More so for our friends at 48days. However, somedays or moments we can't help but feel anxious and ask "Can I really do this?", especially when we receive a revelation to go after a big goal.

This week, I want to challenge everybody (myself included), change the question to "can WE really do this?" 

I heard this quote: "my job is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible". The mission we have in our hearts did not originate…
