To be encouraged and inspired is as necessary as having air to breathe. Whether writing or speaking, we have been given words to bring life to the faltering, the weary, the dry bones. I use the Greek word Sozo to describe the life we are created to experience. Isaiah 50:4 says, “The Sovereign Lord has given me His words of wisdom so that I know what to say to sustain the weary ones.” It’s these kinds of words that encourage, that put courage in us and give hope, that help us breathe deeply within ourselves to live a fulfilling life.
We aren’t Lone Rangers! We were designed to work together, whether in business, community, church, or government roles. Wanting a team and actually becoming a team are two different things. When we are inspired with the big picture in mind, appreciate the value that each one brings, then we come together to accomplish more than we ever could alone. Too many times we never live up to our full potential.
Don’t be satisfied with ordinary. Don’t live a life someone else designed. Don’t be content to remain in a culture or tradition-created box. The world needs the real you, the authentic you. The rest of us need what only you bring! So don’t be easily defined.
Give your struggling or passive heart permission to dream, to wonder, to explore what could be if you changed your perspective and direction. Allow yourself to dream about how to strengthen your business and encourage your employees. We are all in this together.
We get one life, you and I, and don’t we want to live it to be fulfilled, to be thrilled with adventure, to relish deep peace, to bring life to others? No matter the life you are in, you can live a better story by growing and being transformed into the powerful, one-of-a-kind, daring, bold, and loving person God created you to be.
I am a professional speaker and occasional writer who encourages you to live the unique life you were created to live. Join me at Sozo Life & Leadership or visit my bookings page to discover what services are available.
