The Gift of Receiving: Your New Secret!

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

Giving and receiving: One Principle!

You cannot give without receiving. It's the Law!

Growing up in a conservative church background, I remember clearly the demands from the minister that God wanted us all to give as much money to the church as possible, but no less that 10%. He insisted God would be most unhappy if we balked at the idea.

I balked.

My great discovery: There is a big difference between tithing and giving.

The Good of the Dark: Where You Shine Best

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

No matter which way you look, light will eventually appear!

The universe has an amazing quality: Contrast. Without it, you couldn't see anything. Light can only shine in darkness. 

"Everybody wants happiness, and nobody wants pain. But you can't have a rainbow without a little rain." Zion Forest Lee*

You love your comfy little place. So, sometimes you think that a challenge is a bad thing, that anything 'negative' is a curse. But without the seeming contradictions in life, you tend only to move from side to side instead of forward.
