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.
This is a discussion I've had often with myself and others. As I see it:
Most of us want to change and grow. Yet, most struggle,whether it is a professional or a personal change.
If you want to get unstuck, the first step is to determine which of the 4 levels of change you are at:
Talking – You…Continue
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…Continue

When I struggle with making a change in my life, I’ve noticed it is often because of fear. I imagine that is true for you too.
I have found a great strategy for dealing with this that is effective and simple.
The strategy is 3 basic steps:
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.
I’m an introvert.
Why Introverts are Naturals at Networking
As introverts, we think that being asked to network means doing something that we are…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue

At the onset of every 'New Beginning', there is the realization that in order to have what you've never had, you have to di what you've never done. In order to do things you've never done before, it often requires us to face fears that in the past,…Continue

A short time ago I was at a crossroads and I knew I could not go on working for the company. My talents and ambition were choking and dying. It was a great company, and I was productive in that roll (for the company) but it was not a fit for me. Making that transition was a huge deal.
Big thanks to Dan Miller for his book "48 Days To The Work You Love" along with the weekly podcasts for giving me the permission to break the mold. I've also benefited from entrepreneuronfire.com…Continue
Here I am sitting at my desk in my new home office looking out to the west as the sun begins to make it's way down. I see a beautiful fishing pond, a tree filled lot, beautiful homes, an amazing neighborhood and I have a great sense of peace deep within and I know that I am a success. This view out my office window has simply served to remind me of God's blessings and goodness and that is a huge part of my success. I mentioned that this is a NEW office because in my old office my desk was…Continue
