pplmatter010517

It should go without being said that all people matter in our society. No matter one’s race, ethnicity, creed, religion, or socio-economic status, all people are unique and significant. Every person is also entitled to his or her opinion and freedom to express that opinion. Read more…

4-harsh-truths-that-will-make-you-stronger

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
— Marcus Aurelius

If we could get away with it and still maintain our sanity, most of us would be content to live in a fantasy world. Why not? There would be no problems. We get to live in a castle. We eat perfectly cooked food. Servants wait on us hand and foot. We ride on white horses and kiss princes and princesses. Good deal, right? It’ll probably feel good for about a week, maybe a month, but after a while, we’ll grow tired of that life. Read more…

“Productivity is being able to do things that you were never able to do before.”
— Franz Kafka

Productivity doesn’t happen by accident. If you want to accomplish anything worthwhile, you won’t do so by merely thinking about it or being sporadic about it. Productivity increases by learning good habits that help us to reach that pinnacle of goal achievement. You must be committed, start out small, have a plan, be specific in your goals, and precise about what you will do to achieve them. Here are 3 other ways to help you reach peak productivity: Read more…

The Great Story of Truth (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 275)

the-great-story-of-truth

Proverbs 2:1,9 (NLT)
My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go.

Nearly everyone in the world is searching for truth. Truth is that definite fact or certain idea that does not change. It does not move along with the winds and frequent changes of society. While some people look to meditation, yoga retreats, secularism, or reason as a means to find truth, believers know better. We know that the truth of God must be both believed and acted upon.

Trust that Never Fails (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 273)

trust-that-never-fails

Psalm 20:7 (NLT)
Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.

All people trust someone or something. Sometimes, we put our trust in the wrong people or the wrong things which eventually leads to disappointment. The direction of our lives can also be altered by where and in whom we choose to put our trust. And if we trust no one or in nothing we open ourselves up to a new level of stress and anxious that if it goes unchecked can push us over the edge. Read more…

8 Habits of People Who Win (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 256)

8-habits-of-people-who-win

“The man who wins may have been counted out several times, but he didn’t hear the referee.”
— H. E. Jansen

Winners have certain qualities that set them apart from everyone else. These are not deep qualities that are only identifiable of a select few. But everyone can develop a winning attitude and outlook on work and life. Success has a lot less to do with a secret and much more to do with the kind of attitude one brings to the table. Read more…

Refreshing Trust (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 242)

Refreshing Trust

Proverbs 25:13 (NLT)
Trustworthy messengers refresh like snow in summer. They revive the spirit of their employer.

In a world that is filled with deception, the truth is like refreshing water on a hot day. If people can’t trust you, you’re going to live a very lonely life. The reason for this is because relationships do not flourish where trust is not evident. The more people can trust you, the better your life will be. People will want to be around you because you are honest, you do what you say, and that makes others happy and confident. Read more…

ECHO (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 209)

ECHO

2 Corinthians 10:4 (NLT)
We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

When people speak negative words to us, many times, we have a tendency to rehearse that negativity in our minds. Maybe it was a teacher who told you that you were stupid or dumb. Or maybe it was a parent who said you weren’t good enough. Or perhaps it was a friend, or someone you thought was your friend, who embarrassed you for your weaknesses. Read more…
