The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

The Ardent Method


The better your attitude doing the things you don't really like to do, the more likely you are to be given more of the things you do like to do.” Zig Ziglar

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Ardent: “enthusiastic or passionate” New Oxford American Dictionary

How many times have we heard someone say, or even said to ourselves, “I'm too good for this.” I used to work in the construction business, and I know from experience that there is never any glamour in digging a ditch. No matter how good you are with a shovel, chances are, no one will ever compliment you on a perfect hole you've just dug. Nevertheless, many people have gone from digging ditches to running companies, not because they showed they were exceptionally good at digging ditches, but because they had an exceptional attitude while digging ditches. Whatever we're doing right now, whether it be digging ditches or earning a comfortable living, there's always room to grow in our lives and careers. It is our attitude that will determine if we will or not. So let's become ardent in everything we do, whether it be enjoyable or miserable, and see what a difference it can make in our lives.

Daily Journaling questions:
      1. How did I help someone today?
      2. What act of kindness did I perform today?
      3. What did I learn today?
      4. Who did I love today?
      5. What about today do I want to remember forever?
      6. What are my goals for tomorrow?
Thanks for reading.
