Gene Dickison has been blessed with decades of inspiration and information from some of the greatest thinkers of the past and the best minds of our current age. So many decades, in fact, that he knows things that he no longer recalls where he learned them from.
In this edition of our newsletter, Gene responds to the angst and anxiety felt by so many in these days of decided uncertainty with two ideas that he would like to claim for his own. However, they are undoubtedly thoughts from folks far wiser than he.
The first quote asks you to decide where you will place your faith:
“You can either have faith in God or faith in a faltering economy. Choose to have faith in God – act on that faith. Believe your faith has the power of restoration.
Pray for those who need their faith restored.
Trust that all is according to his plan.”
The second quote is (almost certainly) from Jim Rohn – one of the greatest business philosophers of ours or any time. Gene’s paraphrase of Jim Rohn’s concept is:
“In all of recorded history, spring has followed winter.
Every, single time.
Some winters are indeed hard.
Some winters are longer than others.
But they all end.
And when they end, spring arrives.
And with the arrival of spring comes growth, life, and vitality!“
Have confidence. Have good plans. Step away from the naysayers and doomsday prophets. Most of the folks who are scaring you have their own not-so-hidden agenda. They want you to buy something and think scaring you will cause you to part with your money. They believe that no crises should go to waste.
Turn off those messages wherever you may find them. Give yourself a break from the negative. Take a deep breath, take a walk in nature, take time to pray, hang around positive people, return to your values, and persevere. Spring is coming!
Please allow us to serve you and those you love.
P.S. In what do you have faith?
