Receive the Gift

During this month of gift-giving, I am instituting a daily TRINSPIRATION® post that will focus around “The Gift” of Christmas.

Even though Mary didn’t understand how or why she had been chosen to birth the Messiah, she made a decision to “Receive The Gift” that was promised to her by the angel Gabriel.

Talk about right up my alley…#ThreeWordsToLiveBy is trending on Twitter right now. And I’ve seen everything from the ridiculous to the sublime. A dancer tweets: “Point You Toes.”  A female softball player tweets: “Love the Game.” A goofball tweeted: “Always respect word limits.” If he were tweeting, my daughter’s soccer coach would undoubtedly say, “Value the Ball.” At least that is what he’s told her on more than one occasion.  In fact, that #TRINSPIRATION made my Top Ten TRINSPIRATION phrases of 2012.

Build Your Platform

on Thursday, January 10, 2013 | Category: General

I really enjoy social media because of the connections you can make and the information you can glean from it. At the beginning of the week, I came across New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and popular blogger Michael Hyatt on Twitter. Captured by his story of previously being the CEO of Thomas Nelson publishers to successfully transitioning as an author in his own right, I had to read his book, Platform Get Noticed in a Noisy World—A Step-by-Step Guide for Anyone with Something to Say or Sell. Since I have something to say…and sell, I dove right in to reading it. Before you X out of reading this blog, let me emphasize that EVERYONE is in sales. If you are an awkward teenager wanting to ask out the pretty girl who sits in front of you in biology class, you are definitely in sales. And son, you definitely need a platform if you want her to say, “Yes,” to a date with you. My wife who is a college counselor is selling her students on choosing the right college and their parents that she is knowledgeable enough to help them make that decision. The larger her platform, the more confident the parents and students will be in listening to her advice. Again, everyone is in sales, so I believe everyone can benefit from Hyatt’s book and I’ve only finished the Introduction. But here’s what I learned so far:


1.    The competition has never been greater. (Especially from the captain of the football team who also wants to ask out that cute girl in biology class).

2.    People are more distracted than ever. (Just ask my children who’ve tagged me a PDA—hole for spending too much time surfing the net on my smart/dumb phone).
