You’ve no doubt heard the business adage…“What you don’t measure, you can’t improve.”

It’s certainly true in business, sports, andscience, but what about life?

How do you measure progress with your life?

With work or business it might be a little easier because we could use our income. But what about our health, or our relationships, or our intellectual growth?

Now there is a great tool called the LifeScore Assessment that helps you do this in less than 10 minutes–and it’s free right now.

Even if you aren’t competitive, how would you rank
each area of your life?

Would you give yourself a good score with your health?

What about your finances or relationships?

What if there was a way you could measure yourself
in the areas that matter most–so that you can
improve?

What if you could get an overall score for your
life, take it to the next level, and create the
life you want?

Well, now you can.

New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt has
developed a proprietary tool that makes this whole
process super easy–and it’s free!

Like many assessments, this one is
self-administered.

It provides you with the opportunity to rate
yourself in each of life’s major domains.

You read a series of statements that describe
specific situations and pick the one that most
closely aligns with where you perceive yourself to
be. Then you refine a bit based on your unique
situation.

The tool then calculates your score in each
domain, adds them together, and gives you an
overall LifeScore.™

The whole process takes less than ten minutes. It
will give you the clarity you need to create the
life you want.

Once you discover your LifeScore,™ you can quickly
see opportunities for growth and what is working
well.

If you take it quarterly, you have a built-in way
to measure your growth over time and stay
motivated toward what matters most to you!

Best of all, the LifeScore™ Assessment is FREE–but
only for a limited time.

So go take the assessment today.

Enjoy!

P.S. The tool (that Michael makes available for
free) calculates everything for you. You
just read the descriptions, pick the one that’s
most accurate for you in each domain and then
you’ll have your overall score. It’s fast and
easy. But you’ll come away with tremendous
clarity when you’re finished.

Who Speaks Into Your Life?

 

th-1

Can you believe that 2017 is within spitting distance? As I get older, it seems like time is accelerating at a blinding pace.  In fact, it feels like the years are flying by at an exponential rate.  This gives me pause to consider how I go about increasing the quality of the days I have left.

One of the best ways I’ve found is to surround myself with the voices of those who are where I’d like to be.  Who are your mentors?  Your heroes?  Who are those men and women who have accomplished those things that you’ve only dreamed about? Those are the voices of hope and reason amid the chaos of mediocrity.

My dream is to be an author who makes a difference with my art in the lives of others.  A voice crying in the wilderness guiding people to the green pastures of joy, hope, peace, and victory.  So, I’m listening to men and women like Michael Hyatt, John Maxwell, Andy Andrews, Joyce Meyers, and others whom I respect and trust.  They are all where I want to be.

This year, I’m determined to make huge strides toward my objectives.  If you’re like me, I’d like to share a free ebook I’ve found that I am going to use to get me down the road toward my goals in 2017 and beyond.

Let me know if it helps you  toward your goals and dreams.

Reboot Your Gratitude

I’ll confess, I can tend to be a half full. You know the type, the skeptic, the realist, you know negative.  God has been walking me through a process of renewing my mind.  Here’s what He’s been teaching me. For several years now, I can’t get off  Romans 12:2, Phil 4:8,  and Ephesians 2:6.  Joyce Meyer’s says, “You never fail God’s tests, you just keep taking them over and over until you get it right.”th-1

Is it just me, or sometimes does life stink? You think things will work out one way and everything seems to turn out just the opposite of what you’re believing for? You were believing for the sweet life, and you got lemons.

So, when life throws you a lemon, how do you reboot your mind to get it lined up with the Word?

How do you make lemons into lemonade?

You add sugar.

Gratitude is like adding sugar to lemon juice.

It makes sour things sweet.

Studies show that being grateful and giving thanks effects every area of your life. It effects your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Here’s how gratitude reboots your thinking:

1.  It honors God – the word actually commands us to give thanks to Him, Psalm 100, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, His courts with praise.” In 1 Samuel 2:30 –  God says, “I will honor those who honor me.”

2.  It renews your thinking by changing your focus from what you don’t have to what you do have.

3.  It’s God’s antidepressant – you can only have 1 thought at a time, you can’t think a grateful thought and a depressed thought at same time. It is impossible!

3 Ways to Increase Your Gratitude

  1. Start a gratitude journal – write down all those things your grateful for and read and add to it during your devotional time.
  1. Get a gratitude accountability friend  – Someone who loves you enough to tell you the truth.
  1. Hang around grateful people.

Even when gratitude doesn’t change your circumstances, it changes your perspective – from the lens that is limited by your circumstance, to the unlimited lens of God’s perspective.

Keep On Dreaming

Are you like me and at times you feel like you missed the boat, because the dream you thought God put in your heart just sailed on by and left you standing on the shore, and all you could do was to wave as it passed you on by?

Maybe you think you’re too old.  Mose’s dream journey did not begin until he was 80.    Show me where God put an expiration date on dreams.

Maybe you think you don’t have enough education.  Remember, God used a bunch of uneducated fishermen to turn the world upside down for Him. I think too often we’re trapped in the conventional thinking of this world.  God says He chose the foolish things of his world to confound the wise.

So what do we do if our dream doesn’t happen the way we thought it should, or when we thought it should, or how we thought is should?  Maybe our dream was too small.  I’ve heard if we can accomplish our dream in our own strength without God, then our dream is too small.  Or, maybe, we weren’t willing to pay the price and do our part  with God to bring it to pass.


No matter what, I challenge you – dream again.  Take a chance.  Take the risk.  Do what’s hard – it is worth it.  Dream a God-sized dream whether you are 8 or 80, never, never, never stop dreaming.  Dive into the Word, sit at His feet, and get dreaming.  If you’re breathing it is not too late!

If you need to jump start your dream, I highly recommend reading “Chase the Lion” by Mark Batterson.  It will reignite you fire! #chasethelion

 

Chase The Lion

New Book by Mark Batterson

I recently had the honor of being selected to be on the launch team for Mark Patterson’s new book “Chase the Lion.”  Today, I got a sneak peek of the first two chapters.  I can honestly say that it’s the only work that I’ve read where I wanted to post every other sentence on Facebook or Twitter.  Immediately, I was challenged to dream big, and to revive dreams I’ve set aside.  He approaches the topic from a fresh perspective that I’d never thought of before.  It is INSPIRING!

I can already tell that this book should go on everyone’s “Have To” read list.

What is your dream?

The Lion Chaser’s Manifesto

Quit living as if the purpose of life
is to arrive safely at death.
Run to the roar.
Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-given passions.
Go after a dream that is destined to fail
without divine intervention.
Stop pointing out problems. Become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past. Start creating the future. Face your fears. Fight for your dreams.
Grab opportunity by the mane and don’t let go!
Live like today is the rst day and last day of your life. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails.
Live for the applause of nail-scarred hands.
Don’t let what’s wrong with you
keep you from worshiping what’s right with God. Dare to fail. Dare to be different.
Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
