5 Things You Can’t Do

I’m probably younger than most of you reading this. I haven’t got a ton of life experience, but I have made a few mistakes in my life and have learned that there are a few things that we can’t do and still live effective and productive lives. Here are 5 things we can’t do and be effective…

1. Care only about ourselves.

2. Believe that we have nothing to offer the world.

3. Allow our circumstances to control us.

4. Be negative people.

5. Live without a known purpose from our Creator.

So, for those of you that are more “experienced” (I didn’t use the word “older”), what would you add to this list? What can you teach me?

    I believe I’m younger than you! Non the less my point would be never associate with those who don’t agree with your vision.

  2. A few things I would add, only because they are what God has been speaking to me lately:
    – build your own kingdom and think it will bring fulfillment
    – go it alone
    – find validation in others
    – stop dreaming
