So much of our lives revolve around the stories we tell. Not only the ones we tell others about our past but more importantly the stories we tell ourselves about the past.

Encouraging Word of the Day

Consciously look for persistence today in your thoughts, words, and actions today. Where can you push through, keep moving forward and find success?
There is a power in the word behind. There are a lot of ways that this word can be positively applied to your life. You can put things behind you and move on unencumbered by the past.

When you look at the majority of people, they have put their real goals and dreams aside to accept living in a rut of consistency and security that life provides. Safe is the choice, but we still have dreams that we are not acting on. Today I am looking to act and am encouraging you to come with me.
