Show Notes:

YOU MUST STEP OUT, FIND YOUR REGULARLY PLANNED LIFE TO SEE THINGS IN A NEW WAY TO CHANGE

  • Just like Daniel, the character in the book, sometimes we already have planned what our life would be but there are some circumstances or problems that press on us that we need to give up something and live a different life.
  • When we take a step to come out our constructed life; at first, we might feel uncomfortable but it is necessary.
  • We should be willing to live a new way of life.
  • Change is like walking through the unknown, we don’t know what it’s like.

THINGS WHICH ARE THOUGHT TO BE PROBLEMS IN LIFE CAN BE SOLVED OR TURN AROUND INTO A POSITIVE

  • Maybe it is not easy to find the positive in a challenge in our life but it is easier after the problem has passed and it can be very difficult when we are in the problem.
  • Once all the pieces fall into place we accept what’s really our problem.

PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING FOR THEIR OWN IDENTITY

  • Rather than an identity being what makes you special but it really means what do you match with.
  • ”Where do I fit in this entire world?”

Quotes:
