Today we have a pastor in tha’ house! Bishop T.D. Jakes is also an author and a filmmaker who has some motivational speeches from time to time. Just as with Eric Thomas, I love the energy he uses to transmit his message. I believe he manages to successfully combine religion with practicality because he often says how we should trust God’s plan whilst pushing through all our difficulties we face in life toget to where we want to go.
We’re only living one life at a time. I don’t know if I was something or someone else before just as I don’t know what happens after we day. Sure, we can speculate and we can believe in lots of possible scenarios, but we don’t know for sure since we haven’t experienced it yet. What we do know for sure is what we’re living right now and we can estimate how our “right now” can evolve in time based on our actions. If God has a plan for us, we need to execute upon it so it seems that it all comes to action, again.
I must say, it is interesting to see how a bishop transmits the idea we shouldn’t leave all the hard work to God so the plan gets executed, but instead we need to do that hard work because at the end of the day, it’s our life.
You can find below a video made by Evan Carmichael with his view about Top 10 Rules for Success that T.D. Jakes applies in his life.
As almost always, it’s very hard to choose. For today, I’ll go with rule #4 (Be authentic to your core) because I believe we firstly need to be in harmony with ourselves before starting any journey in life, otherwise we might end up sabotaging ourselves.
Which rule do you like the most?
