Reading is Fundamental

Reading and education
unlocks the door to greatness.

You ever wonder why the majority of my blog posts are pretty short? 

It's deliberate on my part to keep them that way, because many people simply do not like to read -- at least not lengthy content. People don't like to read directions or the ingredients of food items, and certainly not long books, articles, or blogs.

Me included on that last part.

I love reading, don't get me wrong. It's just that to sit so long is boring and my attention span is short. It always was. In fact, according to a study Microsoft conducted, many people have short attention spans and start getting fidgety after only a few short minutes. That's why there exists a distaste for  sitting during long lectures. TED Talks are 18 minutes on average (they get it). Further, you probably won't find me sitting for hours reading one single book either. That surprises people since I'm an author and blogger, but it's true. My eBooks are 30/30 -- usually less than 30 pages that can be read within 30 minutes -- easy breezy baby. Regarding books, I'll eventually finish one, but it may take me a while since I'm usually reading other books, articles, blogs, or God knows what else, all at the same time. Honestly, my learning style is similar to the "non-reader", so I tend to keep things short and to the point. Hit it and quit it sort of speak. 

Whatever you read, read for understanding and for wisdom. I'm just glad we're reading though, because it's the key to just about any type of success. And remember, we read the bible. Thats the greatest source of wisdom and power. Can't get any better than that and reading other things in addition to the bible is good, as well.

The moral of the story is to keep reading even if for short periods of time, because it all adds up. "Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding" (Proverbs 3:13).

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
