Weekly Tips

Tip: Adversity is preparation for greatness!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

The experiences we face in life can sometimes seem strange. What we are taught in school is supposed to prepare us for a specific vocation or profession. We also learn from our environment, our family, and our friends. But perhaps one of the greatest teachers of all is a friend that we often fail to recognize. It is called adversity.

One of the most powerful words in the English language is the word THINK. What happens to us in life will largely be determined by our ability to use our minds and learn how to properly think about circumstances as we reason through situations.

Tip: Are you full of happiness or are you full of joy?

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

In this week’s Tip, I want to try to make a finer distinction between being happy and being full of joy. Mark Twain once said, “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter–it’s the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning!” Words do make a difference in the way we perceive things.

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

I am sure everyone has heard the saying, “Variety is the spice of life.” I cannot take credit for the originality of that thought, but I certainly can take credit for putting this Tip into practice! This has been the story of my life! I have been an undergraduate student, a graduate student, a youth director, a school teacher, a supervisor of curriculum, a school Principal, a football coach, a travel agent, an assistant Pastor, a Senior Pastor, a business owner, a motivational speaker, a counselor, an employee and a business consultant. Life has never been dull. I do not think any two days of my entire life have been close to being alike! I do not think I have lived an unstable life. My life has been a great adventure!

Tip: What you hear, you forget; what you see, you remember; what you do, you understand

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

I am sure that anyone who reads this Tip has heard a statement similar to this one at some point in their life. Anyone who has been around an educational program, a seminar leader or a motivational speaker, has heard over and over again that in order to be successful, you have to do more than just hear good ideas. You must actually put them into practice. I am sure you have heard the old joke: Three bullfrogs are sitting on a lily pad; one decides to jump in the water. How many frogs are left? Answer? Three. Just because you decide to do something doesn’t mean you do anything! This week, I want to focus on one particular aspect of that concept.

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Recently I was with a friend of mine in a store that sold building materials. The place reminded me of an ant bed! The employees were all hurrying to pull orders, talking on the phone, using the copier to make copies of paperwork, and speaking loudly to each other. It was a hot bed of activity!
