Recently, I finished reading a book about a Jesuit priest who wrote about his life's journey in growing his faith through his knowledge and research of the saints.
My particular favorite story was his writings about Mother Teresa, who, you may know, dedicated her entire life to helping the poor. Apparently, Mother Teresa was also known for a famous response. When anyone was donating money or services for her missions, she would simply say, “Thank you, but it's not enough.”
As you navigate through your career, working long hours, taking on more responsibilities and receiving promotions, have you ever asked yourself, is it ever enough?
How can it be, in this ever changing world, that you would answer that question with a yes?
Whether it's at work, or at home with your family, there is always more to do or learn.
Are you up to the challenge?
At work, have you explored new ways to add value?
In your wildest imagination, what could be the outcome of your explorations?
With your family, have you looked at new ways to love and support each of them?
How would those actions elevate the relationships with the people you love the most?
Are you satisfied with the dreams you have fulfilled?
What could you accomplish, what relationships could be revived, what dreams could be revived or started anew if you don’t just settle, but instead open your mind and say to yourself, “Thank you, but it's not enough.”?
