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 Beneficiary of Satisfaction

"It's not what they're doing to you, but what you're not doing." Bill Cosby

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.  But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.  James 1:23-25

Exploit: "a notable or heroic act" Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

Sometimes it's easy to start to feel like the world is stacked against you, like there us a class of people that don't care about you, or care only enough to ensure your productivity for them.  It's easy to wonder why liars and cheats can get rich while decent, honest people struggle to get by on the leftovers of the corrupt.  However, that attitude is a trap that will only serve to ensure you remain a servant of the elite.  The only difference between the so called "successful" and the nine to five worker is action.  You may never have a million dollars, a house on a hill, or an exotic automobile; but we all have a heavenly father that created us to exist as equals.  Not in talents, abilities, or looks; but in purpose.  Taking action on your dreams with the knowledge of your purpose will ensure that you will never be the victim of someone else's success, but the beneficiary of your own satisfaction.
