    Life Challenges with Don Mills Building Bridges

    in Culture

    BUILDING BRIDGES. Life Challengers gather around me. Class is in session. This is not a critical discussion, just a sharing of opinions. I value yours, so help me out with your comments that inspire, encourage, motivate and enlighten. During my many years of living, I have come to realize that everyone wants to be successful; at something. We pray, study, and practice techniques to achieve greatness in our areas of interest, but we often over look one step-BUILDING BRIDGES that will help us to be successful. When I am asked about becoming successful; developing and achieving goals; getting what you need and having what you want, I respond with questions about relationships with family and friends. I say, whatever questions you have, you already know someone with the answers; whatever you need and want, somebody you know has it and can tell you how they got it and might be willing to share it with you. But something is required! You have to reach out and BUILD BRIDGES that are ground in trust and friendship. You have to reach out to family and friends and let them know how they can be helpful. Your ability to achieve and sustain success, as evidence by accomplishing personal goals is connected to your ability to develop and maintain positive relationship with family and friends. Life Challengers, what are you doing to BUILD BRIDGES that will reposition you so that you can help family and friends live fuller and more satisfying lives. How do you develop and maintain positive relationships and establish new ones? What do you think?

    Have you ever been in a situation where things are going really good and then, all of a sudden, things get crazy? You do a double take trying to figure out what just happened don't you? We've all been in that or similar situations that make us just scratch our head.


    On today's Your Blueprint for LiFE: Living in Freedom Everyday we're going to take a look at handling conflict, knowing when to let go and the power of reconciliation. One of the greatest examples is that of Paul and Barnabas.

    Life Challenges with Don Mills 'Deal Breaker'

    in Lifestyle

    Life Challengers, gather around me. Class is in session. Have you reviewed the previous Life Challenges? Start with the review for that is the preparation phase. Now you are ready. You have done all of the right things. Your plans are connected to goals. You have a great support network and spiritually, you prayed about it. What happens when you did all of the right things the way they were suppose to be done. What happens when you thought that everything was right, only to discover that everything went wrong. What happens when you felt violated, disrespected, manipulated, and like a failure. Unfortunately, in the best of circumstances, this happens.
