Meet today's Beacon, Tara Roberts. She is an extraordinary human who has achieved very high levels and she has faced her share of personal and family struggles. Many of you will relate-- what someone's life looks like from the outside isn't usually what it looks like from the inside. Tara has been a mentor, motivator and cheerleader to me and I know she'll inspire you as well.
Some of the topics we cover in this episode are:
-how a person (and especially a woman) can be confident and not have to apologize for it
-how its your reaction to your circumstances, not the circumstances themselves, that can change your perspective on life--even in the midst of family addiction, miscarriage, bankruptcy and illness.
-how God is always pursuing you, even when you're not pursuing Him
-how we are all perfectly imperfect
-how to keep what is good in your life, honor what was hard and commit to changing what you can
-how being passionate about what you do can give you confidence
-how we can't do it alone. Let your friends help you.
She drops a golden social media nugget: before you post, pause, because the moment is fleeting but what you put out there is forever.
Her book recommendations include: "The Shack" by William P. Young. "The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry" by John Mark Comer and "Greenlights" by Matthew McConaughey
Some of her favorite quotes are: "Smile where you are...God is." and "Don't let your blessings become your burdens."
