Top Lessons Learned in 2021 – Part 2

At the end of each year, I do a year-end review, and at the beginning of the next year, I share what I learned from it. This year is no different. In this episode, I share the lessons I learned in 2021 in the categories of legacy, calling, money, friends, parenting, and marriage.

Today, I continue to share my biggest lessons learned in the past year. I talk about the importance of accepting that, one day, we’re all going to die. I talk about the need to pursue God’s calling in your life, being faithful to your ministry and resting in who God made you to be. I discuss the need to get your financial life in order, and I note the importance of eliminating greed, pride, and selfish ambition. I emphasize the importance of cultivating friendships, and I note the power of a single decision. I define JOMO and explain why family team meetings are essential. I discuss the power of excitement for the future, and I discuss the importance and power of reconciliation.

“You can turn your whole life around with one decision right now.”

– Doug Smith
