On Enough

Enough is defined as, “as much or as many of something as required.” It is a word used when something is exhausted or finished, time for example. John Maxwell asks the question, “How do I know that I have given enough as a leader to really help people reach their potential?” The answer to his question is not a delimiting one, a time when your limit is reached or satisfied. For the answer to the question of your selfless giving to those whom you serve is to continuously give them more than enough.

Likewise with yourself. Brené Brown writes, “Believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable, and imperfect.” Know, always, in all who you are and do, enough is never enough. Good is not good enough. Great is not great enough. There is always something more. May you fill your life and the lives of those whom you serve with more than enough because… you are so beautifully more than enough. As William Blake wrote, “You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.”

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!

One Response to On Enough

  1. Mike this is a lovely message, thank you for sharing. I am a pastor and a leader in Eswatini (Swaziland), but sometimes I feel I am not doing enough. And when I think I have done enough, I feel people require more of me, and sometimes I crave what I call simple feedback, that says, “thank you.”
