Constant Contact or Constant Conflict?

Constant Contact or Constant Conflict?

Tracey Jones
We are so quick to judge others when the first person we should judge is ourselves. I am not morally superior to anyone else. When I take offense at the slightest pretense, I reveal just how shallow I am.
When Worlds Collide

When Worlds Collide

Much of what living a tremendous life involves is deconstructing what is and reconstructing it to what can be. Life is like a jigsaw puzzle where you get to create the picture on the box as you go. There’s a timeless tension between where we are right now and where we want to be in the future. If there's one thing I've learned it's that intentionality trumps capability. There is no use in saying, "I can," unless you follow it up with an, “I will.”

Be intentional about interacting with everyone you cross paths with, even if it’s just making a comment to a fellow human being in a checkout line, or waving someone the go ahead to cross the street with a friendly smile. Yes, anything that impacts someone else counts as a meeting.

Salute to a Tremendous Father

What he could not have fathomed was the utter lack of individual ownership in creating their own lives. He knew what it was like to be dealt every bad card in the deck. From an impoverished upbringing to a lack of schooling, abuse, and betrayal. Yet, he gloriously pursued life without an ounce of "woe is me" or "you owe me." Pity parties were for thumb suckers, and he repeatedly proclaimed, "No one is a failure until they blame someone else."

From Flying Blind to Seeing Straight

In life, if we aren’t intentional and vigilant, we think we’re going where we’re going, but we're headed to an entirely different destination. No need to get angry at others or beat yourself up for your mistakes. Just take control of the stick, and rightly orient yourself. The good news is, you can forgive yourself and enjoy where you are until you get on the proper course. After all, you are the pilot of your life.

Capturing Wisdom: Write to Life

Capturing Wisdom: Write to Life

Tracey Jones

“When you read a book, when you hear a speaker, when you hear a sermon, always take your pen and read or listen with the pen to cultivate the habit of making notes of things you think rather than what you thought you heard. Now, today make a few notes. As you hear speaking make notes of what you think. Listen, but listen just enough to get your mind in motion and start those thought process.”

The Theory of Transcendence

The Theory of Transcendence

Everything in life has potential, but it must be developed. That never happens without a catalyst. Motivation arises from a need greater than self. Motivation is about uncorking potential. You have potential, but nothing happens until something is put in you to act as a catalyst.
