Good Morning everyone!

It’s Memorial Day! A day we should all be grateful for and thankful for. Soldiers all across the country have sacrificed for us, for their families, and for our country, they have set a standard to commitment…

That is what I want to talk about this morning, Setting a standard in your life, To make it clear, I am by no means trying to compare our soldiers and veterans commitment to our everyday goals in life, but using it as an example to strive for. Reaching our goals and dreams in life will take nothing less than true commitment, there will be struggle, but with that comes growth. It will take self sacrifice.

There will be days you do not believe in yourself, there will be days you slip up and feel you have gone backwards and lost everything, there will be days you feel nothing but alone and want to quit, but since will have set a standard in your life, you will rise past these trials and prevail.

Set a standard in your life TODAY! Don’t allow yourself to live down to anything greater.

Have a great week, and thank our service members everyday, not just today!

Best,

Jordan
