These last few Saturdays my youngest son has been up early, dressed, and ready to go.  He’s Excited! The 3 on 3 basketball tournament is underway at our church. My little “Happy feet,” turned “Mr Buckets” has spent countless hours (years) learning the game, reading books, watching videos, and studying the moves of the great players. He absolutely loves the game of basketball. I am inspired by his Tenacity and his Drive…. My advice to him: “Keep Growing, Keep Reaching, and Keep Believing in your Dreams!!!”

Charlie “Tremendous” Jones said; the difference between who you are today and who you will be in five years will be the people you spend time with and the books you read. What a powerful truth!

Today, I am going to leave you with a few quotes from a book I am currently reading, “The 12 Traits of the Great,” by Dr Dave Martin.

  • “Are you aware just how unique you are in God’s eyes? There’s nobody else like you in the entire world, and there never will be anybody like you. You have a fingerprint that has never been duplicated and never will be duplicated. You have a retinal scan that is so unique, it can be used to identify you with the same accuracy as a fingerprint or a social security number. When God said, “…Even the very hairs of your head”
  • “To see yourself the way God sees you is the only accurate way to grasp your true identity and potential. According to the Bible, God sees you “in Christ.” In other words, He sees you the same way He sees His Son, Jesus.”
