Know Who You Are

Society has created a generation of people who truly don’t know who they are. People have been floundering with their identities for years now. And it only seems to get worse.

The doubts and fears generations past have only continued to build momentum. This has caused us to doubt ourselves.

So many people don’t even know who they are. Let’s decide to change that this year.

Not Knowing Who You Are Hurts

Being stuck in the daily grind has been soul-crushing. We’ve gone to work. We’ve punched the clock. We’ve done our duty.

And we’ve been left empty and wanting more.

Our jobs have left us unfulfilled. Our pastimes have left us knowing there’s more out there. Our society has left us confused as to who we truly are.

Why You Should Help People

Have you ever been around someone who would move to world to help a brother out? These people seem to be rare these days.

When you find them, you want to make sure the friendship lasts. You know there’s something special about them.

They know you should help people. It’s the right thing to do. What about you?

People who are willing to help are people magnets. Everyone wants to be around a person like that.

Their desire to help people shines a beacon. And they deserve the attention they get.

Two friends come to mind when I think about people who are extraordinary helpers. First is my coworker Jim.

Jim’s a guy who’s always looking to help someone out. Whether it’s opening his home to a person in need or fixing my latest automotive disaster, Jim’s right there to help.

Leaders Need To Get On Belay

One of the coolest experiences I’ve had was a recent ice climbing excursion to the upper peninsula of Michigan. The time was spent with a great group of guys all looking for adventure and finding it in the great outdoors. Not only that, it also taught me a valuable leadership lesson.

A term often used in climbing, whether it be rock climbing or ice climbing, is belay. For those of you who don’t know what belaying is, belaying refers to a series of techniques climbers use to exert friction on a climbing rope so their climbing partner will not fall far. The climber on belay does this by applying friction through the use of a belay clip and keeping the rope taut.
