As I scrolled through my notifications on my Iphone I was hit with this breaking news from NBC. 

 

The Unemployment rate has fallen to seven percent, a five year low. 

All I could say was, "Thank you Lord! Thank you that this is not me." If you have a job you are blessed. You may not feel too blessed but the simple fact that you have is better than not having. It may not be the job you want or love, but you have one. Everyone can not say the same thing and someone else would love to be in your shoes. Gods word says in Colossians 3:23-24, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward." It is the Lord Christ you are serving. This is the holiday season and there are so many people who are lacking and going without. Be grateful that you have employment and that you are not apart of this horrible static. 

I would like challenge you to do a new thing to get different results.

Yesterday December 5, 2013 the world was grieved with the tragic news of the loss of Nelson Mandela. Uniquely Uncut pays tribute and homage to the legendary and Former South African President, Nelson Mandela. Mandela is recognized by the world for his major contribution to ensure freedom and equal rights for African Americans and every walk of life, form South Africa as well as the nation. Mandela could not and would not be stopped. Not even after spending 27 years in prison, isolation could not stop him, break him nor contain him. He fought for what was right until freedom was gained. Mandela became S. Africa's first black President and his leadership and reign will be missed forever. He is a man who took on a white regime in the midst adversity and racism.

Day 5: Envision Your Values in Action 
It's never too late to change course. 
If this is not the life you want, love yourself enough to try another path. 

I am excited that yesterdays Day 4 exercise was the first step in creating a personal mission statement. Today we are taking it a step further and working on Part 2 of my mission statement. This is actually the next step is my Book- "5:Where will I be 5 years from today?" Killing two birds with one stone, I love it! Confirmation that I am moving in the right direction 🙂

It is time for some Action! What good is saying a thing and knowing a thing but doing the complete opposite? Its time to put an end to all this talking of goals, values and visions and put forth action to make it come to pass. How bad do you really want it? Prove it! So bad that you are willingly to press the issue?!

Today’s exercise involves two parts to help me dig deeper in thinking about how I
can incorporate my values into my daily life.
