Don’t Judge Me, You’re Not God


“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation.  It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.” – Paul Coelho

Everyone has their own experiences and views of what is going on. No two people live the same life. We are all different.  We won’t always agree, but if you don’t agree that’s fine. If you can’t disagree respectfully shut your mouth and move on.  Why do you make nasty comments about other people?

I wonder why we’re quick to judge another person’s deeds when we don’t understand their thoughts, their worries, or their needs.  God knows each human mind and soul. He also knows their hearts, so if we’d let God be the judge we might be pretty smart.

Sadly, we are always critiqued, by the people that we know. By the title or occupation, and by the possessions that we show.

We judge by church denomination, and by what we believe. We’re judged by what we spend, or by what we give.  We’re judged by age and gender, and by where we live.

We are judged by our past, and by our education. By the language that we speak, or by our nation.

Everyone is guilty of judging the other!

We evaluate cosmetically. We judge both fat and small. We judge by ones appearance.  Fact is, we judge it all.

Some judge because they are paid to. Some judge intentionally.  Some judge to build self worth, some judge unwillingly.

BEWARE, for there is only One, who evaluates every stain and smudge. Good luck amateur critics of humanity, when you face that Judge!

Don’t judge people until you are perfect yourself.

Don’t judge my path if you haven’t walked my journey.

Nobody has it easy, everybody has issues. You never know what people are going through. So pause before you start judging, criticising, or mocking others. Everybody is fighting their own unique war.

Your Family Is An Organisation


What is the essential mission or purpose of this organisation, and what is its main strategy in accomplishing that purpose?

What is your family all about?  Where are you leading your family? Do you have a clear destination in mind? Do you have a flight plan?

People are willing to invest time and energy into running their business, but when it comes to their family, they think, ‘Oh, I don’t need to do that.’ 

They think, ‘My family isn’t going to fire me, but my boss might.’

Is your family a mission-less family? Who is the spiritual head of your family? Who is the spiritual heart of your family? 

If the family is the most important organisation in our lives, as many people believe, why do we spend so much time at work planning, clarifying what success looks like and how we’re going to get there, and then we come home, we’re so reactive and unintentional about family life? It doesn’t make any sense.

Why not use some of the business tools that help grow your companies at home, and see how your family will turn out.

Your family needs a mission to guide it toward intentional living.

Remember, no other success in public life can compensate for failure in the home. For if you have failed at home you have failed eternally.

What Next? Take Time To Reflect


The end of the year is a great time to take stock of the year, to look ahead and to reflect on your life wheel because it encourages mindfulness and accountability.

Take a couple of moments before the New Year to think about new experiences that influenced you personally. Reflect on all the great things you have accomplished in the year 2015 and pull out the greatest lessons you have learned to bring into 2016.

What went well?  Who needs to be acknowledged?  What’s not working?  What do you need to let go of going forward?  What do you need to spend time on to see better results?  How can you be much kinder to yourself in the coming year?  Who will you connect with more in the year ahead?  What kind of leader, peer, friend, partner (and other roles) do you want to be?  What do you want?  What is your word/phrase/question for 2016?

No matter what your lessons and reflections, I wish you a beautiful end to year 2015 and a gratitude-filled start to 2016.

To Your Success!

True Gratefulness Begins With Awareness

True Gratefulness Begins With Awareness

The world is full of pain and suffering, hardship and turmoil, disappointment and regret. So the fact that I can be thankful and mean it is, in its own way, a miracle.

All we have has been given to us regardless of what we have done to make ourselves and others think we deserve it.

We sometimes take for granted things like food, water, safety and security, roof over our heads, good health, family, education, employment, etc.

As we approach the end of the year, it is prudent to take some time to do an inventory of all the good things in our lives.  Which one are we grateful for? 
Did we earn it?  Who gave us the ability or skills to earn it?

I am thankful for Grace — for love that cannot be explained (only surrendered to), for a Creator that inspires creativity, for purpose and a hope that there is more to the story than we see.

Listen to “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”

Hope for Tomorrow


God is in control of each storm. Let the storm take you where God wants you to go. He wants the best for us. He has a perfect plan for our lives.

What need are you up against, wondering how it is going to be met?

Take a few minutes today to quietly and deeply think about your life. Is God providing you with the necessary “tools” to go in the direction you are taking? Or is God not providing? Remember, only where God guides, will God provide. Where He leads, He supplies all needs.

Obey Him. Believe Him. Trust Him.
What God starts, He finishes.
