Chick-FilA Somebody

What is normal for you?

There things in my life that are absolutely normal to me that seem absurd to anybody else.

Waking up at 3AM, driving five hours to give a few 20 minute talks, then turning around and drive five hours home, only to wake up tomorrow and do it all over again?

For me, this is totally normal.

What’s normal for us is odd or different for others.

You'll Never Lose Helping Others Win

I’ve been struggling lately.

I get to do what I love for a living. I get to encourage students, speak in to their lives, and help make a difference in schools all across the state of Texas, and hopefully soon, all across the country.

But I also have to put food on the table. I have to feed my family.

If a school comes to me and asks me to give a 15 minute talk, but the school is four hours away, it’s not just a 15 minute talk. It’s eight hours in the car, gas, rental car, food, and in some cases, an overnight hotel stay.

So how do I balance this? How do I balance helping others succeed and keeping food on the table?
