So I have read quite a bit of psychology research on this phenomenon that people will frequently profess a belief in a religion, yet not actually practice the religion. The reasons are not simple, they are in fact as varied as the people involved. However, there are some overall themes that repeat. The first and […]
Many people avoid contention at all costs. They will steer wide and clear of the remote possibility of conflict.

Loyalty. Can it be bought? Perhaps for some, but not for me. Loyalty. Do you deserve it because of a title? Some may think that but not me. Loyalty. Do you gain it by force, perhaps coercion? Some seem to attempt that, but never me. Loyalty. Can you earn it? Absolutely, and there have been […]

What is the 365 Commitment?
Make Your List
Every morning make a list of tasks. Whatever comes to mind. You should consider adding names of people you can serve to your list. Own the day before it owns you.
Pray or Meditate
Ask for guidance on the list you made. Listen to that inner voice. Make revisions to your list. Commit to doing your best to get the list done today.
Assign a priority on each item of your list. Emphasize the most important things first. Use a numbering system if you like.
Set Goals and Act
Throughout the day set small goals to accomplish the list. Listen to inspiration as you may get promptings to do other things. You will find your efforts magnified.
Each night before going to sleep, report back in prayer or meditation. Review what you accomplished. Ask important questions, make commitments to improve tomorrow.
Ready to Commit?
Whatever you want to accompish that is in harmony with the Will of God (or Nature) will come true if you commit to this for 365 days.
Are you ready?
