Wikipedia describes confidence as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. We’ve all been confident in our jobs, school, our relationships, sports, training, etc. When we have confidence we believe in ourselves and our skills. For example an athlete hitting the game winning shot or catching the game wining pass. They have confidence that they could make that shot or catch that pass, but what happens when our confidence has to depend/rely on someone else or something else? How much confidence would you put in them or that other device when it comes to your life? Continue reading
There’s a quote from Colin Cowherd’s (ESPN Radio Host) book: You Herd Me! “I’ve traveled to forty-seven or forty-eight states, settling in only five, and I’m here to tell you there’s a stark difference between visiting a place and sinking some roots, no matter how deep. A home, a lawn, a neighbor – that’s how you get to know the heart of a place.” Time spent on someone, something, or somewhere is time well earned. You can’t expect to get to know them, the place, or how to do it until you get down on the ground and spend time working alongside the people or exploring the place. You can read all about them and the place but until you sit down or get up and explore the area you won’t be able to get a good read on them. Continue reading
Have you seen the commercial by Dr. Pepper featuring Pitbull… in the commercial he’s talking about the stats on how many people achieve making a record deal, touring, having a top ten hit, etc. Then he finishes the commercial by saying… “Dreams are for those whole sleep. That’s why I live mine.” On some level thats true. Our dreams are simply that… dreams. It’s up to us to pursue are dreams and make them a reality. How many of you reading this right now have a dream, passion, or something you’ve always wanted to do? How many of you have actually had the opportunity to pursue them? How many of you have actually been able to accomplish that dream or passion? Continue reading
This past November 1-2 we headed to Montgomery Bell State Park for 20 miles of singletrack mountain biking. We had a record number of guys attend, 28 men, camping, biking, eating tons of good food, and spending some time fellowshipping! This trip Tim Devlin shared on what it look like to live a life as a disciple. He shared personal experiences and excerpts from the book Multiply and from John 21.
As today’s print moves between the delicate balance of print and electronic print i.e. eReaders, online print, and eBooks we begin a great debate: Which is better… a printed book: something you can hold in your hands, bookmark pages, underline and highlight passages OR electronically printed books: something you can take everywhere with you and as many books as you want in 1 device. Now there are pro’s and con’s on both side. We are going to stay perched high on the fence with this subject because we believe printed material, either electronic or paper, are great methods to reaching all consumers. But which do you prefer? Are you a paper person or an eReader person? Continue reading
In life, sports, and work we cling to what’s good. We cling to the things that make our day easier, help us win, get us raises and promotions. Life tells us we must climb up the ladder in order to achieve our goals. But what if we were to climb down the corporate ladder? What if we decided to let go of the wins, the raises, and the things that make life easier and head the opposite direction? What if we decided to let go of our familiar surrounding or our safety nets and try something new? Continue reading
