Most every deep thought I meditate on stems from a quote I’ve read or heard elsewhere. Case in point:
If you want to be promoted, excel at your occupation. If you want to have a nice house, take good care of the one you have now. If you want people to listen to your counsel, have a successful life so you have credibility (talk is cheap). If you want to be happy focus on what is going good in your life (not what is wrong in the world) and cultivate thankfulness.If you want to have a great relationship with God, give yourself completely to Him…If you only seek Christ in crisis than don’t be surprised if crisis becomes your lifestyle. If you want to write books, start writing articles.Stop waiting for someone to come along and discover you, take responsibility for your own success in God. By God’s grace you have been given the ability to work hard!- Kris Vallotton
The truths found in this quote eluded me all my life; especially the “have a successful life so you have credibility (talk is cheap)”. This is why I’ve removed nearly all my other websites. Talk IS cheap, and I have lots of it.
I need to live more life, take more chances, build some things with my own two hands, and grow some food out of the ground.
Maybe then… someday… I’ll have something to say.
