Are YOU the Real Deal?

Are you the Real Deal?

As I look around me in this changing economy, I hear a lot of negative depressing things.  I also see several key leaders; some that are just regular people living with great integrity.  These are the people that run their lives and their businesses with a great amount of passion and relentless drive.

For me one such example is the Stephen Curtis Chapman family.

In May of 2009 the Chapman family endured one of my greatest fears, the loss of their daughter, 5 year old Maria.  They have drawn upon their love for each other and their faith to continue living example worthy lives.  The Chapman family has recently opened Maria’s Big House of Hope in China, a healing home dedicated to saving the lives of special needs orphans, stating “Love of God is pure when joy and suffering inspire an equal degree of gratitude”.

For me, this really is The Real Deal!  In these uncertain times when things can be VERY challenging, keep your eyes on the prize so to speak, and keep doing your best at what you love.

Winning the Race

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs.  Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger.  If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.  ~Dale Carnegie
