Think and act on these...

When I had tea with one of my mentors a few months ago, we were talking about making impact in life i.e. letting our light shine where we are.

She then shared this quote attributed to Madeleine Albright which I'd never heard before:
“There’s a special place in Hell for women who don’t help each other.”

I found this quote interesting - not that I agree with it because I know the Bible tells us about those who will go to hell. The point is we must realize how important it is to help others...the quote gives us food for thought and hopefully action.

The alternate way of looking at this is holding onto one of my favourite quotes:
“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”

Purpose to "light" other candles around you - and what a brighter and better world we will all have to enjoy.
Care enough to share your flame...

Start today...

God makes three requests of His children:
Do the best you can, where you are, with what you have, now.
(African American proverb) 

For me, this is timeless proverb is a great way and place to start this is year. I recommend that you join me and make God's 3 requests your
resolutions for life.
Whatever (and all) you do this year, please use all that God has blessed you with to do what He has asked you to and start today. Just as money loses value over time, so does the impact you could make - it can lose value too if wrongly timed. Now is the best do what you have been called to. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us (Prov 27:1); Today is the "present" - make it a gift...
Start today to do the best you can... 

Can you?

That is a question that comes up now and leaders we need to help those around us give the right answer.
