I’ve thought a lot about the hate, division, and polarization that we’re experiencing...
It seams like anyone that dare have a different opinion than me deserves hate..
How did we get here?
Where has civility and kindness gone?
Maybe we should start listening to the wisest, kindest man to ever walk the earth - our savior and older brother who said:
“Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.”—Matthew 5:44

Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.
In a recent Self Improvement Daily episode, Brian Ford talked with Jim Fortinabout the power of identity. (A powerful podcast episode. Link in the comments)
A non smoker isn’t even tempted if someone asks them to smoke. Why? Because it’s part of their identity.
How many times have you heard “I don’t smoke.”
They don’t even have to decide because they identify as a non smoker.
🤔 What behaviors do you want to get rid of or create?
⭐️ Now decide what identity you need to adopt to become who you want to be.
An identity that has meant a lot to me is my identity as a child of God.
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” - Romans 8:16-17
Think about it. You are a literal son or daughter of the most powerful being. You are his heir. You are important. You have an infinite potential.
Don’t ever forget it.
Here’s a link to a music video that my little brother did. It has a powerful message. And my little family is in it.

🤔 What's a relationship worth?
As much as you put into it.
I'm a science guy, and I love the visual of potential vs. kinetic energy. Every relationship that we have, every person in our network has an enormous potential to benefit us. That said, we have to work to convert the potential energy to kinetic energy.
Your network can be your net-worth. If you put in the work :)
Many of you may not know, but I am a devout member of my faith.
I’ve been extremely quiet about it on LinkedIn because I wasn’t sure that a business platform was a good place to talk about religion or faith. I’ve decided to change that. My religion and faith are a huge part of who I am. They’ve had a huge impact on my values and the way I conduct business.
Starting today, I’m going to post something faith promoting every Sunday. I believe that spirituality and faith can be a huge force for good in the world... yes, also in business.
Today’s thought: God loves you. Business can be hard and lonely, but know that you are a child of God and that he is fighting for your success.
