Guest Post by Megha Shah: Hustle Your Way to the Finish Line (Vita. Consilio. 03.21.17)

Over the last few years, if there is anything I have learned, it is that there is no such thing as ‘luck’.

Luck is just an excuse made by those who are unwilling to work but wish to achieve all the success there is. We all know the saying – “the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” This is true and must be a guiding principle for you if you wish to achieve great success in any endeavor you pursue.

Chapter by Chapter (Vita. Consilio. 02.02.17)

Someone once described life to be like the chapters of a book. I can’t disagree with that assessment. Every chapter is dedicated to a scene. And a series of chapters make up the whole story. Without those scenes, there would be no interesting story to read.

Life is the same way. Life doesn’t happen all at once. It has a rhythm and reason to it. One event follows after another event. There is a sequence, a chain of actions, which afford us order, logical, and sense. As much as we’d like for there to be no timeline, there is. Read more…

The One I Want To Know (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 334)


Philippians 3:10-11 (NLT)
I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death, so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!

There is a very big difference between knowing about someone and actually knowing someone. We could all say that we know about our favorite sports figure or celebrity but we don’t really know them. We know about the leaders of our country but we don’t really know them on a personal level. We know about them by what we read, see, or hear, but we don’t know them like we know our spouse, children, or friend. Read more…

In the Waiting Room (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 331)


Hebrews 6:15 (NLT)
Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised.

When family and friends gather at the hospital for the birth of a child, what is the scariest part? The exciting part is that a new bundle of joy is on the way. But the scary part is waiting, in the waiting room, expectantly hopeful and shaking with nerves. And a large part of being a child of God is exactly like that — standing, sitting, on our knees waiting hopefully, and sometimes not as patiently as we should. Read more…

The Little Things We Do that Waste A Lot of Time (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 319)


“Clocks slay time… time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.”
— William Faulkner

The world we live in is practically overflowing with information, media sound bites, cable news, magazines, hot reads, and more stuff than we ever will have the time to look at or read, much less comprehend. In this fast-paced environment, it is highly likely that many of us find time to be a strange thing that seems to slip out of our hands just as fast as it comes into it. Read more…

Stop Wasting Everything (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 296)


(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #28)

“You know, you only get to live life once, so there are two things that that yields. One is that there’s no point in crying over spilt milk, but secondly you hate wasting time, energy, and whatever talent you’ve got.”
— David Miliband

Everything around us is limited. This is a basic principle within economics. An unlimited amount of anything does not necessarily exist. As a society, we use our resources to satisfy our wants and our needs. Our wants and needs are limitless but the goods and services we use to meet the satisfaction is not. Read more…

Stop Avoiding Success (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 286)


(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #18)

“If you avoid failure, you also avoid success.”
— Robert T. Kiyosaki

The fear of failure and the fear of success are almost always talked about in the same breath. One reason for this is because people experience some of the same anxiety symptoms when faced with failure or success. There is a legitimate fear in being aware of one’s potential for failure and success and the reality of both failure and success when it hits home. Read more…
