A few points to ponder/ things I ™ve learned along the way. Unlike Letterman's list, there are only 6.
1: Success isn't monetary. Sure, this seems obvious to most. But let's really redefine achievement and what it means in this new year. I ™ve met a lot of homeless people who are richer in character, love, and peace, than those living in the largest mansions.
2: Love and peace, are major assets in your life. Perhaps the two best you can possess.
3: Corinthians confirms this. The greatest of these is Love ¦
Can you imagine? He places love over even Faith in God. Read it.
4: If people say they want you, love you, and need you, make sure that what they're saying lines up with what they're doing. Maybe mom was right. Actions really do speak louder than words. Same with your business life. Make sure words and actions are congruent. If you're confused, cut your losses and move on to a higher level of living and peace will be your reward. This requires a bit of sacrifice, perhaps loss, and pain, most of the time.
5: Congruency is the greatest challenge of mankind. But when our thoughts, words, and actions are all in alignment, your body mind and soul are at peace. Otherwise, there's conflict. As Paul wrote, I do what i do not want to do. Ever done that before?
6: Adventure might provide adrenaline, and so does angst. But overall we should seek Peace, not Justice. That was one of the greatest lessons someone taught me last year. You cannot put a price on peace.
