Daily BITUB- “Service”

Earn your success based on service to others, not at the expense of others." -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

When I was a kid I always felt like I couldn't do enough. I wanted to climb higher on the tree, ride my bike faster, run faster. I struggled with that feeling through most of my life. I wasn't content with where I was... I wanted more. You might be thinking I'm going to say it's different now, but it's not. In fact that feeling has grown over the years, but it has shifted from myself to the people around me. I feel like I can never do enough for others. I want to do more, want to give more, want to help, want to serve. I want to help them realize their personal and professional goals. I want to see them light up as they reach a milestone and realize they can do it, that limitations are often self inflicted, that dreams aren't going to realize themselves. Why? Why not give up on people? Why not just stop trying? Because the world is full of people with promise, potential, and passion. Sometimes they just need a kickstart. Maybe, though, it's simply because nobody ever gave up on me. Don't be afraid to fight for what you believe and for all those who never stopped believing in you!

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed weekend.

Daily BITUB- “Faith”

What growth are you expecting? Mental? Physical? Spiritual? I've learned, for me, it is difficult to have the other two if your spiritual health isn't in check. I struggled for years with my faith. I had little to no relationship with God and nobody was going to convince me I needed one. The result was poor health choices. Almost destructive to a point. My mental health suffered the most. I wasn't willing to accept my role in many of the paths I was walking. After all, it couldn't be my choices could it? That changed over time as I realized the importance of God in my life. It still wasn't easy, but God has a way of letting you open your eyes when you are ready. He does it through the blessings He puts in your path. You find they have always been there, you just didn't see them. When I did, I found myself looking at life very differently. I appreciated my challenges a little more. I grew closer in my relationships to the people that mattered most. Those same people who helped me realize the beauty in letting God in. My wife's faith was the strongest of all. Her commitment to prayer, to me, to our kids, and to God made me realize how beautiful a family of faith can be, and it helped me appreciate much more the day to day blessings God provides. I've said it before... Even the strongest in faith sometimes struggle with it. When I  realized that God never left, even when I left Him, that's when I better understood that faith was always in me. I just needed to see what God already did.

Daily BITUB- “Take The Ball”

"Winners always want the ball when the game is on the line." - Coach McGinty (The Replacements)

When faced with a challenge, a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, adversity like you've never felt don't leave it up to someone else to handle. Be in control of the situation. Take ownership of the setbacks, the miscues, the fails and get back after it. Learn and grow! Be better for the experience and hold yourself accountable. Don't settle for anything less than what you set out to achieve. Finish what you started. Nobody will influence the outcome of your life more than you, and you shouldn't allow anyone to. The choices you've made got you here. The choices you will make will get you to where you want to go. Be an active participant in your dreams and when that dream, goal, life is on the line... Demand that the ball is in your hands.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- “Help is there.”

"When you cannot stand, He will bear you in His arms." -Frances de Sales 

Sometimes you can't stand on your own. You need help, but maybe you are afraid to ask for it. Asking for help isn't weakness it's strength. It's knowing where you are, where you want to go, and what it will take to get there. God puts moments in our path for a reason. It may be an obstacle that creates strength, it may be a person that encourages us, it may be a smile from a stranger that simply knows you need one. Not all blessings are in disguise, but it's easy to overlook when your focus is on the negative rather than the positive. Often it's easier said than done, but have faith that through God all is possible. We've heard it and we've said it, but we must believe it, even when it seems impossible to believe. That's faith. That's prayer. That's saying we need help, and trusting that God will provide it not when we want it, but when He decides when truly need it.

Daily BITUB- “Go After It"

You have to be connected to what really matters to you if you are going to pursue it relentlessly. Let's face it, if you aren't all in then it's not going to work. You lose focus easier, you let doubt take over, you become the negative you have pushed away for so long. There are no shortcuts, no easy ways around, no freebies when the dream is big. Sure, there will be days all seems lost, but those are the days that the determination and will to succeed take over and push and pull you through the storm. You have to get up every day and realize that you can't give yourself a free pass. You go after it today just like you did yesterday. You go after it with the same intensity you did the first time you decided you were going to chase down this dream! Every goal, benchmark, milestone needs to go in your mind and create the strength that says we will get there, it will matter, and Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU!

Have a blessed week!

Daily BITUB- “Plans”

I can remember many days where I had a plan for the day only for it to be derailed almost immediately. I had visions of getting so many things done, but the day had a different idea of what I'd be doing. As frustrating as that can be we mustn't lose sight of the things we did complete. Maybe those things weren't on our to do list, but the exciting part about living life is the opportunity to have a list in the first place. The unexpected moments aren't always going to happen, but when they do you might just find there was a reason for it. You may never know, but you might have made someone's day better because you unexpectedly crossed their path, given someone the encouragement they needed to complete a task by offering a helping hand, comforted someone just by being there for them when they needed it. Blessings surround us, and while we may not have gotten to our daily plan have faith that we are always a part of God's plan.

Daily BITUB- “Down Not Out”

Sometimes things just bring you down. You get discouraged by people, let down by others, and it can be draining. Nobody is immune to those situations, and sometimes it's the hope we place in others that gets damaged the most. What I've learned over the years is how our focus tends to linger on those few negative situations rather then the many positive ones that come our way. Maybe it's because there are so many we take them for granted. Maybe we just overlook them because we can't get passed the negative one that happened weeks ago. Life is all about moments. It's about interactions that make us who we are. We can think the good or bad into any situation. It's ours to control. It's our choice to see the silver lining, to find the light in the dark, to believe that even in our darkest moments there are blessings. Remember God is giving us what we need to be all we can be... So we may be down sometimes, but rest assured we are not out! Don't lose hope, for it is that hope that creates the building blocks for a solid foundation of faith that can and will sustain you.

Daily BITUB- “Opportunity”

There will always be opportunities, but they aren't always going to knock! Does that mean we simply wait to open those doors? One of my favorite Abraham Lincoln quotes says, "I will work and prepare and one day my chance will come." We should always be ready when opportunity does knock, even more ready to make our own opportunities! Our potential is only as great as our ability to realize it. There are no limits, no barriers, no obstacles we can't overcome. Sure, we can find as many reasons as we need to let ourselves off the hook and not go after it, but I've found the regret of not even making the effort doesn't subside. Have an honest conversation with yourself about what you need. Then hold yourself accountable to chasing it down! Don't settle for anything less than achieving your goals, reaching your peaks, living your dreams! Opportunity may not knock, but have the strength and the courage to open those doors and get after it!

Daily BITUB- “Emotions”

How often do we allow our emotions to lead us? Shouldn't we be in control of our emotions? It's not easy. When in the moment our instinct tells us to react! So, when we do it often ends up worse then when it started. It takes strength to hit the pause button and collect ourselves. We must take into account all the circumstances and take inventory of the situation. What matters and what doesn't? Do we need to get into this, or do we simply need to carry on with what we are focused on. The distractions are inevitable, but that doesn't mean we have to allow it to distract us! It's good to express your emotions, but make sure it's the right ones. Give yourself time to get your footing and understand the moment, then react! Let yourself express what you feel, why you feel it, and why that moment matters. You will be better for it, and who knows maybe the emotions you feel once you understand why you feel them will be better for everyone!

Daily BITUB- “Better for it!”

Somethings just take longer. It's hard to accept when often we are accustomed to instant gratification. We want things now, but the things that sustain us, the needs that build our foundation, the things that make us stronger won't happen overnight. That is why those challenges exist. So we are able to grow, to learn, and to appreciate when we finally reach that milestone, goal, peak. In those moments of doubt we must look past what we can see. Trust the path and believe in the possibilities of what lies ahead. Reflect on how many times you considered giving up before, but you didn't, and you found yourself better for it! Deep down we all possess the ability to do more, to push more, to give more of ourselves. There is no limit to what we can do, but make no mistake it can't be easy and we better be prepared to do things we've never done! That's how you become more than you've ever been. Have the courage to be... Be more, be better, be stronger, and Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU!

Have a blessed weekend!

Daily BITUB- “Appreciate It”

"If you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth!" -Rocky 

We are harder on ourselves than anyone ever could be? Why is it we find it easy to scrutinize our shortcomings, but hard to revel at our accomplishments? It's not pride or conceit... It's taking the moments you reach a benchmark, a peak, a goal and using it to propel yourself into the next challenge! You must take a moment to notice all the blessings you are to you and to others. We often live within ourselves so much that our ability to downplay and push ourselves backwards can change the course of our lives. Appreciate the struggle, give thanks for the grind, and be grateful that God gives you exactly what you need to grow, learn, and be better each and every day. Trust in Him as He trusts in you! Use that faith to see what so many already do when they look at you! Then let your determination in meeting your expectations create your definition of a successful life. It will ultimately create the path you seek and allow you to not only appreciate the challenges, but also all the beauty in overcoming them!

Daily BITUB- “What will you choose?”

We all bring something to the table. Everyone possesses a special gift, a talent, an ability that we are blessed with to share with others. We get so many opportunities to be the unique person we are. God provided us the gift of life, but how we live it will be on us. We get to choose what we do, how we perceive things, what and who matters to us. We can chase our dreams, develop our talents, focus on self development, give more than we take... All choices we will make day in and day out. What will you choose? Will you choose to serve? Will you choose to be positive? Will you choose to use your strengths, talents, blessings to make a difference? All we are is from God. All we do should be in His name. "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." (1 Peter 4:10) Be your blessings!

Daily BITUB- “Speak”

While actions may speak louder than words be aware that words can initiate action. From whispering "I love u" to shouting from the rooftops, "I will fight for what I believe!", our words have strength and can change and influence a life. So, speak with sincerity, shout with conviction, feel, mean and be conscientious of what you say! Cherish your opportunities to say kind words, words of encouragement, words of compassion, words that let others know how you feel and why you feel it, words that create hope, words that profess your faith! While actions may speak louder than words don't miss the moments to let your words be the catalyst for  as many positive actions you are blessed to be a part of!

Daily BITUB- “Believe”

You have to be determined. You have to be dedicated. You can't allow the inevitability or setbacks to keep you from trying. You can't let them take away your spirit, your commitment, your energy! Focus on the hope of possibility and the strength in your faith. You have to realize it's not if, but when you reach limitations, you hit the wall, you let fear creep in. It's going to happen, but it's how you handle it that matters. How you take it and make it matter. How you create moments and mold them into lessons. How you put all you are into perspective because you know what you want, what it's going to take, and why you'll take it! You know God won't give you more than you can handle. You just have to tap into that belief you can handle much more than you think. It's not enough to go with God. You have to be willing to grow with God! "All things are possible if you believe."

Daily BITUB- “Blessings”

Whose blessings are you counting?  How often do you find yourself thinking about what it would be like to have "that" instead of "this"? How often do we stand in awe of others looking at things they have and then forget about our blessings. I've said it often that focusing on what we don't have simply clouds what we do. It is blinding to the blessings that God provides to fill our lives. Right here where we stand is often a dream we once had. Finding the appreciation in that often can open our eyes to all the beauty that led to this moment. God's gifts of family, friends, the support, lessons, experiences... All of the blessings that gave us the faith and the foundation to reach here and be in this place, this moment, this opportunity! Not all blessings are in disguise. Some are right there in front of us. We simply have to allow ourselves to see them, and you would be surprised how many people right now are standing looking in awe at all all the blessings surrounding you.

Daily BITUB- “Peace”

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27)

If you are stressed out, give it to God. If you are confused, have doubts, weary from the fight, give it to God. If you are struggling to get through this moment, give it to God! We don't ever have to go at it alone. God already knows our worries. He knows our fears, anxiety, and what we are dealing with. This path we are on isn't by chance. It's there for us to learn, to grow, and to become everything we can be. It's not always going to be easy, and why should it be? You can't live life without all the things that come with it. That's how we come to appreciate the good times, the peaks, and the victories so much more. Be at peace. Find comfort that there is truly nothing that you and God cannot handle. Take a deep breath, be grateful for the moment, and pray. Pray for strength that you can and will give it to God, and let hope, love, and faith fill your heart instead.

Daily BITUB- “Hope”

Our tendency is to take credit for the good, but look for explanations for the bad. Don't look far because they are often one in the same. We are in control of our lives. There is never a time you should blame anyone for where you are. Your decisions placed you here, but that means you also have the ability to move from here. You have to trust God's plan! Trust this is exactly where you should be at this moment. Trust that He has you on the path you are supposed to travel. Focus and remember your faith carried you this far and now is the time to lean on it to carry you further. That's the real beauty of life and all that comes with living it. There will be ups and downs, peaks and valleys, good and bad. It isn't always going to be as you hoped, but it's hope that enables us to move forward. As it is said, "be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord." (Psalm 31:24). Cherish the possibilities in that hope! Appreciate the opportunity of simply being... Being everything you want to be, and through God, finding everything along the way you need to be it!

Daily BITUB- “You got to laugh!”

Have you ever heard today was a "comedy of errors"? Only thing is usually your not laughing! Instead you are often spinning out of control, you are discouraged, and your dream feels like a nightmare! Well, take pause and take a deep breath. Remember why you started this dream! Remember what  it meant and why it means so much! Think about the times things went as planned. Think about how often you looked to take steps and made huge strides. Think about those moments and use them to reengage yourself. Use that to reassure yourself that while today didn't go as planned it shouldn't change the plan. So, take from the day the lessons you must, the experiences you can, and leave the rest right there. Then go ahead and laugh... After all it was a comedy to know that everything that could go wrong did. Then don't forget how blessed we are by how often that everything that can go right does.

Daily BITUB- “Grind”

"Don't expect people to understand your grind when God didn't give them your vision."- Tony Gaskins Jr.

The daily grind! We do it because we want more! We do it because we have these dreams that we refuse to give up on! We are committed, dedicated, and passionate about them. Though there are those days. You know the ones... Where try as we might to go on it wears on us. You can't fake it, go through the motions, pretend it's something you want when those days hit. It pushes you to step up and to determine if it is just a want or a need. You know the difference. You need to reach that peak! You need to carry on! You need to push yourself! You need to do more than you ever have to become more than you have ever been. Our weaknesses are no excuse. There are no unrealistic dreams only the unrealistic limitations we set on ourselves! So get after it! It's a new day and another opportunity to grind it out.
