We all desire relationships in which we are accepted, valued, and wanted. We desperately long for this esteem from our peers, but seldom experience the real thing. This is why teens succumb to peer pressure. This is why people enter into disastrous relationships wanting to be needed.
Inspire your people by appreciation and recognition. This goes a long way. Make their work life meaningful.

There is none so busy as those who do nothing.
No matter how busy people are, they always stop & talk about how busy they are. 🙂
People who talk too much about how busy they are, they’re not.
Busy people don’t even have the time to talk much because they work much. Work on but take a break every 90 minutes. This way you can rest, recharge and still maintain productivity. Takes a lot of discipline to do this.

A friend gave me a beautiful text this morning: In today’s info age, you cannot UPLOAD love, DOWNLOAD time, GOOGLE all the answers in life….so LOG OUT of worldly deeds LOG ON to GOD. You will surely LIKE the life! FACEBOOK is ok, but spend more time with FAITHBOOK the BIBLE. Wise words indeed.

When a storm comes at sea, a ship turns to face the tempest. If the vessel allows the storm to hit its side, it will capsize. If it turns its back to the storm, the storm will drive it wherever the wind blows. Only in facing the storm is the ship safe. Says: Robert C. Shannon. As we face them we grow in character and faith and perseverance. Do not run away from trouble. Welcome adversities. This is discipline!

Get some exercise. Being in the office all the time is no excuse for lack of discipline. You can do office aerobics sitting right at your desk. It consist of jumping to conclusions, ducking responsibility, coming to grips with problems, stretching your boss’ patience, sidestepping difficulty, and pushing your luck. But this will never bring you to your success goals. Discipline is key to winning.

Oswald Chambers says: “The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God you fear everything else.” What are your fears? You face your fears with faith that God is always bigger than whoever or whatever you are facing. Focus on excellence in whatever you do. The rich are not always godly, but the godly are always rich.

Discipline is key to your preferred future. Debt, alcohol, silly risks, reckless relationships, too many nights out, too many missed classes. We have all seen people trade their dreams for a moment, a weekend, a habit, a promise, or a kiss. A little padding of expense, a little diversion of funds and they lose everything. Live a godly life and enjoy your future.

An empty stomach would not let us rest until we put something in it. Unfortunately, an empty mind does not do the same.
I had a wonderful time this morning speaking to almost 400 young and excited people hungry to learn. I left the hall knowing that there is great hope for our country!

A man went to visit a friend and was amazed to find him playing chess with his dog. He watched the game in astonishment for a while. “I can hardly believe my eyes!” he exclaimed. “That’s the smartest dog I’ve ever seen.”
“Nah, he’s not so smart,” the friend replied. “I’ve beaten him three games out of five.” Some people are never satisfied, never contented and they miss out the good things in life.
