Doubt It

We live in a world of NO, don’t we?

We live in a world where doubt has become almost the default position. Doubt is sticky and it’s so easy to doubt even the things that we know to be true.


We doubt or beliefs and believe our doubts, even though doubts are never meant to be believed.

We go through our day doubting everything. We doubt every decision we make as parents, spouses, bosses, coaches, etc. No matter how good we get and no matter how much affirmation we get, there’s still this doubt that comes in and gnaws at us.

Goon of the Bible

We’ve got to be as diligent in the little things as we are in the big things. The little things give us the reps we need to be successful when the big things come.


Naaman was going to miss the blessing of God because he was too prideful to do the little thing. And so often we miss the best of life when we’re too prideful to do the little things.


Don’t let your pride keep you from going all in and giving your best to what you’re doing.

What's Luck Got to Do With It?

Has anybody ever told you, “this must be your lucky day?”

To be honest, I feel like the past year or so has been off the charts. We’ve seen 2Words blow up in ways that we never thought possible.

I won’t deny that I’ve been blessed, or that I’ve had breaks in my life, but I don’t buy for a second that I’ve just “been in the right place at the right time.”

Don't Widen the Plate

Don't Widen the Plate

I once read a story about a retired baseball coach who spoke at a coaching convention. He had coached for decades and had retired recently, but he was the keynote speaker.

As he sauntered onto the stage the audience couldn't help but notice the full size home plate hanging from a string around his neck. It stayed there for the entire speech, but he never referenced it.


As he was closing, he finally mentioned it. He asked coaches at every level of the game, from t-ball to the major leagues, how wide home plate was.

For every single one of them, the answer was the same: 17 inches.
