Chances are if you’ve been in your career for any length of time you have acquired a set of skills. Those skills have made you pretty good at your job.

It reminded me that we each have a part to play in the grand story God is telling. History is really His-story. This includes the history of the world and your own personal history.
In every industry, media, niche, and forum there are rockstars…
People who are so far ahead of everyone else in terms of success, followers, money, status, album sales or whatever else your industry values that it seems mere mortals like you and me will never catch up.
Do you remember your wedding day? You found the perfect person to commit your life to!
This person was different. You loved the way they made you feel. You loved how they treated you. This was true love! It was so great you wanted it to last forever.
