Look For This Sign

If you travel the same road long enough, you will begin to recognize the signs. The problem is, seeing the same signs too often can be an indication that we’re going in circles.

To achieve our destiny we must be brave enough to veer off course. We can’t allow monotony and routine to steer our ship. We were born for more. We know it with everything in our being.

There are signs that indicate we are going the right direction: The unexplainable joy we feel out of the clear blue. The uncontrollable emotion that suddenly overwhelms us when we tell someone what we do. The indescribably peace we feel even in the midst of our greatest tribulation.

I can’t speak for you, friend, but I can speak for myself. All of the signs I’ve been seeing lately point to one direction: my destiny is straight ahead.

I encourage you, friend, press in. Now more than ever we must stay focused, set our heart and face like flint in the direction of our dreams, and remain unmovable, unshakable, until the very end, knowing IT IS OUR TIME NOW!

Self-Acceptance in the Social Media Age

Powerful perspective on the psychological affect of creating and maintaining social media “altar egos.”


By Dr. Perry, PhD

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” ~Marilyn Monroe

We are living in a world where we are able to form a virtual reality presence on a number of different platforms. Currently, we have YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and numerous other social media and dating apps available to us. Many of us use these apps recreationally for a healthy amount of time. Current research shows that 88% of 18 to 29-year-olds indicate that they use some form of social media, specifically, 78% among ages 30 to 49, 64% among those ages 50 to 64 and 37% among Americans 65 and older. It is estimated there will be 2.67 billion social network users by 2018. For those able to maintain a healthy and responsible relationship with their online presence this is a wonderful way to stay connected to others. It opens a…

Why Your Apple Watch Can’t Tell You What Time It Is


Do You Have The Time?

If you asked the average person, “Do you know what time it is?” Almost all of them would pull out their phone or look at their Apple Watch and say, Sure, the time is… But a person of destiny doesn’t look to the outside to tell time, he or she looks to the inside.

A person of destiny has an internal clock deep within their soul that has been recording every second and every minute, every pain and every sorrow, every victory and every defeat of their journey and knows, without looking, it’s my time now!


Keep Believing

Dreams are not made in a day, a year, or even a decade. Dreams are made by those who never quit. That “flutter” of uncontainable excitement you feel when you are around other successful people, or when you see someone else achieve their dreams, is a sign that you’re next.

Someone is just one encouraging word away from believing in themselves enough to become who they were born to be. Maybe that person is you.

If it is, take this word to heart. It’s your time now.

One More Time

You’ve come too far, fought too hard, and lost too much to stop believing now. One more time. Muster every bit of encouragement, faith, and hope that you can muster and try again. Find that drive, that ambition, that fire, that once burned bright in you, and light it again.

See yourself, on stage, writing that book, opening that business, marrying that person of your dreams. Visualize your life the way you know it was created to be until it makes you hungry and thirsty again for the thing you once longed for.

It’s Just Up Ahead.

What you were born for is just up ahead. It’s just around the bend. You are waiting on you. The you that you’ve always dreamed of being is waiting on you, counting on you to make it. You’ve got this!

Yes it hurts! Yes you want to quit! but what will quitting do?

I’ll tell you what quitting will do. Quitting will temporarily relieve your pain. But the pain of regret that follows after you quit on yourself and your dreams will far outway the pain you feel right now.

Regret can ruin the rest of your life, and many lives after you’re gone. GET BACK UP, again. Muster the strength, again. Wipe the dust off your dream, again. You’re just one belief away from your destiny.

Do you know what time it is?

It’s your time.
