Teamwork Succeeds. Renegade Burns Out.

It’s a funny thing about life. When we shut loved ones out of our heart–whether from being hurt or from being angry–we close the door on some of the most important aid we can receive in this life.
As 2010 begins, it would be an important activity for you to find a quiet place and ponder the relationships in your life…and which ones you want to build during this coming year.

We’re not talking about toxic relationships. No, we want you to ponder on who the three most valued people are in your life, and then analyze the health of the relationship. Is there something you can do to improve it?

Remember: teamwork for anything will succeed when people are “on the job” looking out for others’ successes, in addition to his or her own. Being a renegade–someone who insists on going it alone–leads to burn out and loneliness.

Now that January is here, here’s a simple suggestion. Pull out your journal and write down the names of three people who matter most to you. As you work through 2010 toward your dreams, make sure you are building relationships long with your success goals and dreams acquisitions.

For, don’t you want to share your future “having arrived” with someone?

Merry Christmas

Those of us working here behind the scenes love the Savior of the world. It is He, Jesus Christ, who has atoned for our sins and through His grace we are healed and redeemed.

As you finish out the year 2009, we pray it has brought you increased understanding and hope. If not, the scriptures can help you find peace. You may want to obtain your own set if you do not yet personal scriptures. But in the interim, here is a link to online scriptures. Enjoy browsing the link. Find your favorites. Transfer them to your journal. The peace that can come from pondering this way is truly restorative.

Merry Christmas!

For the Thing You Desire

The last post is so important that we felt to reiterate it here. You have to make a place in your heart for the thing you desire, for it to be willing to come and grace your life.

Go back and re-read last week’s post. Ponder on it. Journal about it. What does it mean to you? Then write us and let us know. We’d love to hear from you!
