Who are you and why are you here?

Can you answer these questions? Oh, I know. You have your “brand statement” or maybe your elevator speech. But really, right now. In this moment, do you have an answer?

Shouldn’t we know the answer each day and every moment? If not, what the heck are you doing? Not knowing means you are letting someone else define your life. Or worse yet, you are just wandering around lost.

So every day, be yourself. That is your brand. Be true to who you are. None of us are good enough to fake it all the time. So, why try? But have a plan about why you showed up today. Know your value in this moment and this situation. You will be successful and people will seek you out because they know you come ready to deliver.

Have a great weekend.

P.S. Chris has arrived to his location in Afghanistan and is settling in. Please pray for all our troops. I miss him but know he will represent America and our values in every way. Chris has asked that anyone who can ship toiletries and preserved foods over to send them to other Americans who are in worse conditions than he is. If anyone is interested in helping, you can contact me directly and we will work out the specifics. Thanks in advance.
