The really devastating part about living life on autopilot, especially when it comes to your relationships, is that you don’t even know that you’re doing it half the time. You’re just living your life, wishing for more, but not really sure if there is more or how to get it. While many people live out their entire lives on autopilot (which is truly sad), the way to have truly rewarding and …

Great Century, by George

George Burns’ career could have ended as early as 1958, when his wife Gracie Allen retired from Show business. Burns continued the show after Allen retired, but the show was cancelled after one season. Burns could have let his wife’s retirement from show business stop him from going further in his career, but he ultimately ended up being a huge comic success and lived to be 100 years old. Many of Burns’ biggest successes came when he was in his eighties and nineties. At the ages when many people have long since retired, Burns was enjoying great success. Getting older does have great advantages: we become smarter; we acquire wisdom; we have acquired more skills. 1. Burns struggled as a …

Fear Not

Modern psychology today seems to suggest that living with fears is normal. Some popular phrases are, “Accepting your fears”, “Managing your fears”, “Embracing your fears”, or, “Coping with your fears.” But is that really the way the Creator intended us to live, with fear? Fear will always limit you and keep you from being the person you really want to be. Fear is destructive and it ruins lives. Learning to live with your fears is not the answer. Ignoring your fears is not the answer. Getting rid of your fears is the answer and it is available. If it is “normal” to live with fear why is it that not clearly spelled out to us in the Bible? In fact, …

Exuberance, however, is not to be quashed, but celebrated and appreciated. According to Webster’s Dictionary the meaning of exuberance is, “Unrestrained in enthusiasm or style.” To be exuberant is not to hold back, but to allow the joy and happiness to flow. …
