I've learnt recently that adding a relational component to my life goals reduces its selfish nature because it was no longer about just myself and what I can achieve... Now my life goals leverage others and that doubles the motivation of what I once had.
The true test of greatness can be measured by the accomplishments of those who you surround yourself with and those who come up after you.

There is a season to go after your dreams, but there's also a season to serve under someone else's dream, I believe serving under a gifted leader is the best way to learn leadership. Like a Light marker intentionally illuminating a place so will your decisions and intentions do the same thing. #neversettle

I'm all hype for new beginnings stories. I'd say my journey thus far has closely resembled Abram's story in Bible (Genesis 12:1-3). Its kind of like that same sensation you get when you're at the edge of a cliff on a mountain and knowing you have to decend down into the valley because your destination is on another summit. Excitment can't even explain it, and my expectation for 2018 is way up there! Anyone else know that feeling?

The people we choose to surround ourselves with will either raise us up or bring us down. No one can be great on their own. It's the people within proximoty that make them great. We need to be a part of a community that challenges us, corrects us, that pushes us to greatness, a community that sees your dreams and that helps bring it to fruition and most inportantly a community where there is genuine love.

It's been just over a year since @jason_denison and I went on this adventure. So much has transpired since then, seeing this guy mature and grow not only in his creativeness but also his wisdom and passion for storytelling.
He's one person to keep an eye on in 2018, it's only a matter of time! There is more. #neversettle

It's so critical to get the right voices in your life. Because if you don't get the right voices you won't make the right choices and If you don't make the right connections, then you won't make the right destinations. Start your 2018 RIGHT.

I'm in the city a lot. I see this building a lot. But I rarely take the time to actually take a good look at it you know. In the midst of this busy season with the year ending and all, Please take some time to give thanks and gratitude for being able to live like you do right now. You and I have truly been blessed my friends! @australia @canonaustralia

There's some things I don't understand about this platform still but I am passionate about documenting and telling stories, So I'm changing things up in 2018, and I'd say that this very event that I did for one of my good friends earlier this year help redirect and Redefine what I want to share with social media this coming year. So here's a sneak peak of what I'll be posting more of, don't worry I'll still be uploading landscapes for you all!

I encourage people all the time to invest in Yourself and your passions. There will come a day where you won't have time to read that book, study that subject, visit that place, build a friendship or meet the need. Do it right now! You will look back on it and feel a sense of peace because you sowed the seeds from today so you can reap the reward tomorrow.

Everything shifted in my life the moment I started to take myself seriously and stopped waiting for someone else to. If you have a dream or a goal to live as if it's going to take place is just a matter of time.

I see this word tossed around too many times in my industry. Whether it's through social media, media, politics, sports; It's so easy to become one now and even when you feel as if you aren't making a difference, God might be using you in ways that you aren't even aware of right now.
but always remember the tongue has the power of life and death and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Eternally indebted to the people who have leveraged me these last few months with wisdom, understanding and encouragement, Even if it was just a sequence of conversations with each of them at a critical junction in my journey that helped me resolve a theological conundrum that I had been stuck on.
But I'm back, and I'm ready to end this year off with a bang! Who's with me!?

I only met @chazstead when I went to one of my good friends wedding recently but I love He and @kpstead packed up in Ohio and moved all the way to South Carolina to pursue an opportunity that God opened up before them and whilst listening to His story I was repeatedly asking the question in my head "Are you living your life in a way that is worth telling stories about?". With that thing that you've been sitting on for so long;
You'll never be ready,
The issue isn't readiness: it's willingness

Try to visualise with me this, "Faith is the bridge between where I am and where God is taking me" and with that I believe that half of faith is learning what we don't know, and the other half is unlearning irrational fears and false assumptions that we've built up over time.
Nowadays I'm more afraid of missing opportunities than making mistakes.

I remember humorously joking around with my Pennsylvanian friend Mike that when I visit I'd be staying at his house with his family which happens to be Amish. Who would've though that I'd actually follow through that I ended up spending nearly a week with them. You have to inventory God's faithfulness so you can draw faith from those past experiences, past successes, past miracles and past blessings.

I've been told that destiny is just around the corner and that you just have to go for it; Although my travels through the United States this time round has revealed to me that one of the best ways to discover your destiny is to study your history. It's the seeds of your dreams that are often buried within the memory of your past.
