7 Questions to Ask Yourself at the End of the Day (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 345)


“We thought that we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong.”
— Bono

In my psychological research studies on perception, I have learned that a major part of conducting research is being able to ask the right questions in order to receive the right answers or a series of possible right answers. The same is true in every area of life. To make progress, you have to be willing to ask the right questions because asking the right questions will help you to keep discovering new ways of doing things and gain insight within your field.

8 Habits of the Highly Motivated (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 245)

8 Habits of the Highly Motivated

“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.”
— Chris Grosser

Motivation is available to all of us. It is the key that opens the door to the morning and the bolt of that same door at night. Without motivation, nothing would ever get done. We would wander, doing only what keeps us interested at any given time before we move on to something else. Without motivation, we would die of boredom.

There are some people who are motivated, but there are others who are driven by their motivation. Motivation not only gets them up, it leaves them too excited to go to sleep. Highly motivated people are truly ahead of the pack, they seize the day differently, and this is what sets them apart from all the rest. Read more…

Look For the Success You Want (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 180)

Look For the Success You Want

“Seek the essence of ‘What is’, as well as ‘What can be’.”
— Steven Redhead

Most successful people know that in order to be successful, one has to stay focused. Many people don’t get to the point in their lives where they realize their success because they don’t look for it. Success in anything doesn’t just happen; it has to be intentionally sought and worked for.  Read more…

3 Simple Ways We Sabotage Ourselves (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 172)

3 Simple Ways We Sabotage Ourselves

“When we can’t dream any longer we die.”
— Emma Goldman

We often fail at life not because we’re being hindered or even because we’re facing an obstacle. We often fail because we choose not to show up for the battle. We want something and don’t get it not because we’re not good enough or smart enough, but because we don’t fight long enough. Much of life is about not giving up. Showing up. Day in and day out. Sticking by the stuff. Getting it done. And when we don’t do this, we sabotage our own progress and possible success.

Keeping a Purpose Journal


Some people cringe at the idea of keeping a journal. Either they feel the consistency required to maintain a journal will wain and they won’t be able to keep it up or they don’t think it is very important in the grand scheme of life. Both reasons have merit but in light of our mission to find purpose, both are mere excuses. Read more…

Do Christians Who Commit Suicide Go To Heaven?

I normally do not write about things like this. I am no theologian or scholar and I am sure there are some people who can give a deeper answer to this question. In light of the suicide of megachurch pastor, Rick Warren’s son last week, many people seem to be concerned about whether Christians who commit suicide go to Heaven.

What Are You Doing?

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. – Proverbs 19:21, NIV

People often ask “How are you doing?” This is such a common question that many people don’t even think about it when they ask it, including me. I ask this question lots of times, oftentimes of people I don’t know. Most times I get responses such as “Fine”, “Good”, or “Okay”. Other times, the responses are more interesting like these, “Getting by”, “Can’t wait to go home,” “Can’t wait for lunch,” or as one woman told me, “I’m frustrated.”
