    The agenda of America is simple. In broad terms, Americans want the government to spur job growth, but not by subsidizing more government jobs with taxpayer dollars. They want Washington to balance the budget and reverse the growing government influence over our lives. They want government to encourage success, allow failure, punish those who break the law—and then get out of the way. And above all, they want politicians to follow through on their promises, even if that means tempering those promises in the first place.

    Listening is active. When we listen to people the right way, we think about and process every word they say. We listen for the tone and cadence of their voices, the words they use, the words they omit, the gestures they make and the way they focus their eyes or look away. Listening is hearing plus analysis. It requires us to really pay attention and focus on who’s talking and what they’re saying. It involves strategic questioning, not challenging, to achieve full understanding. Good listening involves effort, because you can’t really understand the way a person feels about an issue until...

(Isaiah 60:18) This beautiful scripture brings us a wonderful promise. Salvation through Jesus becomes our wall of protection. We no longer need to live lives full of violence, devastation, and destruction. Another scripture tells us that if we don’t have self–control, we are like a broken-down city without walls (see Prov. 25:28). So no matter how many walls we think we are building to protect ourselves, if we do not maintain balanced...
    Note: If we do not mantain balanced emotions, all our walls are mere illusions.
  • Sherrie shared from The Laws of Lifetime Growth: Always Make Your Future Bigger Than Your Past by Dan Sullivan, Catherine Nomura
    Finding a way to bring enjoyment to work engages our creativity and gives us the sense that we are in control rather than being oppressed by a task. This opens us up to making new discoveries about ourselves, and perhaps, as in this case, to finding courage and strength of character we didn't know we had. If you approach life as a game with growth as the objective, you'll put yourself in the right frame of mind to engage in and enjoy the adventure, whatever it brings.
    Note: Approach life as a game and enjoy the adventure, whatever it brings! #growth
