Insights from This Episode
1. Recognize that anyone is capable of failing
When others burn out or fail morally, often our hearts go straight to a place of judgement. Instead, take that time to evaluate yourself. Are you being disciplined in your own spiritual, emotional and physical health? Do you have a core person or small group who you can be fully transparent with and who can hold you accountable for your choices? We must recognize that anyone is capable of failing if they are not taking the time to take care of themselves.
2. Preserve time with your family at all cost
There will always be people who need something from you, but you can’t let that get in the way of quality time with your family. Preserve those relationships at all cost. Yes, it’s easier to say than do, but it’s a must for both your personal health and the health of the ones who love you most.
