motivation to succeed

One day, a student of Socrates asked his venerable teacher how to become wise. Socrates led the student to a nearby lake and the two entered the water. Then, he held the student’s head under the surface as the frantic young man fought wildly. Finally, Socrates freed him. The young man gasped and gulped. Socrates watched calmly and said, “When you desire wisdom with the same intensity that you desire to breathe, then nothing will stop you from getting it.”

Socrates is right, the motivation to succeed comes from within us.

Dear Reader: You may have noticed an email asking you to confirm that you want to continue to follow my blog. I’ve upgraded the blog and continue to work on the site (lots more to do, feel free to share your thoughts on how to make it better!) One of the “bumps” I’ve encountered is transferring your contact info to my new blog host. This means that if you are not receiving the regular updates of posts, somewhere we had a breakdown in tech-communication. (The frustration of technology!!!) I would like to personally invite you to join me as we continue down this road of exploration in our faith journey. Please go to: (if you are reading this now, you are on the new site and can go to the home page and sign-up on the right sidebar) and sign-up to receive email updates or to follow along as a wordpress fellow blogger.

Remember, YOU (my readers!) are my motivation to succeed through this blogosphere. I pray that you are blessed, as I am by your support and comments.
