Your legacy might be saving others from your mistakes

It is pretty well known that we learn much more from our failures and mistakes than we ever do from our successes.


Four ways to focus on what's important this Christmas season

In the midst of the busyness and bustle of the holiday season, it’s easy to lose sight of the important things in life, like spending time with those you love and making a difference in the lives of others. This year, take a step back and consider the following four suggestions from Thrivent Financial, a financial services organization that helps Christians be wise with money and live generously, to help them celebrate and appreciate what really matters.

Be grateful

The holiday season begins with Thanksgiving, so remember to carry your feelings of gratitude throughout the following weeks. It may not always be easy to practice being grateful in the midst of holiday stress, but doing so has seemingly endless benefits – from raising self-awareness to allowing people to truly feel fulfilled in their lives. Additionally, gratitude can help you balance gift demands by taking inventory on what you’re thankful for, making you less likely to give in to the temptation to overspend. Carry that attitude of Thanksgiving through the rest of the holidays.
