Ep. 36 - Be An Encourager

5/23/2019
More
No tricks, illustrations, or planning here: just Be An Encourager! The best way to make even day worth while, and to grow as a person, is to uplift the people God puts in your life! We have to get over our own issues, and certainly pop the me-bubble, in order to fulfill our purpose of brightening other peoples' day. But when we do... life gets instantly better! To learn about a precious woman named Sarah who brightened my day during her worst day, tune in today. And we'll leave you with 4...

Ep. 35 - Stress Free Chess

5/20/2019

There is an awesome secret to daily peace! If you master this one thing, then you will have much less strife in the day. And if you repeat it day after day, boom, anxiety will disappear from your life! There is a strategy of planning your day: eliminating non essential plans, spreading out essential elements, and journalling for success, that will change everything! So much stress comes from too many options. We have so many possible things to do today, that we either do none of them, or try...

Ep. 34 - Forfeit For Freedom

5/16/2019
More
Everyone is interested in a stress free life. No one wants to live with worry, anxiety and mental exhaustion. There are some great daily practices that can eliminate most worries, and we'll discuss that in the next episode. But first, let's talk about 4 big things that have got to go if we want to see the stress go away. Sometimes there are big ticket stress items that we hang on to, and they foster lots of unnecessary mental strain. So, by forfeiting those pesky things, we can experience...

Ep. 33 - The Grit Scale

5/13/2019
More
James Clear wrote an article titled: "The Science of Mental Toughness: Talent is overrated, mental strength is critical." It includes research proving that success is based more on grit than inherent ability or intellect. People who are passionate about something and persistent accomplish more. People who are committed to something in which they believe, and consistent in pursuing it, excel in it. Being strong or smart or both is helpful in the beginning, but is nearly always out paced by...

Ep. 32 - The Wicker Basket

5/9/2019
More
It is great to set big goals. But beware, they are not what this is about. This is about the process. This is about you becoming the kind of people who can achieve goals. The problems with grading ourselves by goal's reached is 1) if we, for whatever reason, don't reach them, we are crushed. 2) we do reach them and they didn't satisfy or we stop trying afterward. Listen to the story of the boy with the wicker basket today. He wanted to show immediate and tangible results from his labor. But...

Ep. 31 - Plan your How

5/6/2019
More
I love Simon Sinek's book, "Start with Why." The idea of finding your purpose and passion before proceeding... crucial! Once you find your Why, you'll know What you want to do. For instance, if you find your why in fitness, you'll want to be a daily exercise person. Great! Connecting Why and What is a big deal! But don't overlook the How. The discipline to think through the action, to plan the right way to do it, can make all the difference. So, in fitness, I need to journal when I'm going...

Ep. 30 - Resolving a Conflict

5/2/2019
More
Sometimes you can just sit down with someone and restore peace. You can establish some common agreements, and zip the jacket. But sometimes it's more difficult than that. Sometimes too much has happened. Too much time has passed. Someone went too far. What do you do in that case? Many people give up on the relationship, and accept division and maybe even hold resentment for years. We are Christians. We can do much better than that! But it takes heart and it takes strategy. Let's look at...

Ep. 29 - Assess the Essential

4/29/2019

Do you ever feel overbooked and underproductive? Do you get stressed by all the things on the calendar? Do you wish you could do less but do it better? If you want to create a simpler, more productive schedule and life, then Essentialism, a book by Greg McKeown, is for you! In today's episode we'll walk through some of his basic concepts about defaulting to no, so that you can make more of your yeses. This process leads to more focus, less stress, and much greater progress in your journey to...

Ep. 28 - Open Your Eyes

4/25/2019
More
God is doing incredible things in your life! He is answering beautiful questions, He is surrounding you with providential guidance and opportunities. The question is: Are you seeing it? Sometimes the lighted path is right in front of us, the next person to influence is right beside us, and our eyes are closed. I want to tell you a story from this past weekend. God would not let me keep my eyes closed to His work. He opened them with a ray of sunshine. I am determined to keep those eyes open...

Ep. 27 - Losing Some Battles

4/22/2019
More
This episode is for people who are trying to get better, who are really seeking to excel, but who fall short of that. I do. Many people give up when things go poorly. But those who are really in this war to win it, will not be stopped by a lost battle. Some people avoid losing battles by quitting the war for growth. We cannot do that! Instead, we can use the pain of a single defeat to drive us to resilience and victory in the war! Excelling in faith is a war against mediocrity and lethargy....

Ep. 26 - Do Hard Things

4/18/2019
More
Teenagers get a bad wrap sometimes. Largely because their accomplishments are held back by the low expectations our culture puts upon them. In their book, "Do Hard Things," the Harris brothers enlighten young people to a rebellion against low expectations. They talk about how to do things that move us past our comfort zones, reach out for support, and sow for long term reaping. Their book is awesome for teenagers. And it is also awesome for adults! In fact, our children will learn how to...

Ep. 25 - The Throne Room

4/15/2019
More
Prayer is incredibly important to daily growth and faith. But sometimes it begins to wane. Sometimes it becomes difficult to stay focused on God. Maybe you are praying, and even journaling about prayer items, but still find it difficult to give Him attention and stay engaged for more than just a minute or two. I deal with that often. I've dealt with that heavily in the past two weeks. When that happens, it is time to head to the Throne Room of God! When you can feel the experience of...

Ep. 24 - Start with Why

4/11/2019
More
Simon Sinek wrote the book "Start with Why." It discusses businesses and advertising and how the proper use of "the Golden Circle" makes all the difference. If you can learn the same strategy and apply it in your daily tasks and goals, you too can see incredible differences in your achievements. We often work from the outside in: WHAT do I want to happen? Then we decide: HOW can I make that happen? But we rarely spend time considering the most important question of all: WHY is any of this...

Ep. 23 - Try Three Times

4/8/2019
More
I like the word "Try." I think it has gotten a bad wrap over the years. But if you are talking about genuine effort to achieve something, whether you succeed or fail, the diligence to try is noble and God sees that! But sometimes we try things, good things, one time and then give up on them. In this episode we look at the psychology behind effort, and discuss why it will take at least three tries to properly access the value of something. We don't mean it will become a habit that quickly. We...

Ep. 22 - Zipping the Jacket

4/4/2019
More
Just about everyone knows how to zip a jacket. You put the pieces together at the bottom, get it started rightly, and it glides from there. If you rush it or force it, the jacket will not come together. In repairing damaged relationships, we sometimes try to rush it or force it. We sometimes try to fix it all in one moment. But if you know how to zip a jacket, you know how to fix relationships. To learn about the connection, and see the simple little step that makes all the difference, check...

Ep. 21 - Affirmations are Cool

4/1/2019
More
I used to think that affirmations were not cool! I mean, what good is it sitting in front of a mirror saying nice things about yourself? Well, I've got news for you: affirmations are very cool. At least, when understand through our connection with Jesus Christ. We can believe in Jesus to the fullest. But if we do not also believe in ourselves, and the strength we have because of Him, problems and failure will persist. But with affirmation comes healthy and powerful confidence, and through...

Ep. 20 - Accepting the Worst

3/28/2019
More
Christians are optimists. We know the Lord is with us and we always expect the best. And yet, many of those same Christians struggle with Worry. Why is that? Well, maybe it's because we are so prayerful about it going right, that we haven't prepared ourselves to handle it going poorly. And the fear of it not working out can be crushing for people. In Dale Carnegie's book, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, he identifies one sure fire way to be content day after day, situation after...

Ep. 19 - Level Three Gratitude

Everybody talks about gratitude! I mean, everyone from the preacher on Sunday to your favorite self-help agnostic guru. And while everyone says it will make all the difference in the world... it won't. At least, not at level 1. It turns out, there are 3 levels to great gratitude. When we can get our thankfulness, our appreciation, to that third level, we will truly see a renovation in our spirit that leads to incredible optimism and accomplishment! To raise your gratitude up to the top...

Ep. 18 - "What's My Name?"

3/21/2019

Dale Carnegie's famous work - How to Win Friends and Influence People - is based on one central idea: that every person wants to feel important. It's just the way God made us. So, if you can acknowledge that in relationships, you can quickly build trust into new relationships. How? Well, to start, learn and properly use people's names. It turns out, this is the quickest and easiest way to build rapport in any new relationship. To learn more about how that works, and to get some tips on how...

What do you remember from last week? Did you do things that really made a difference and left lasting impressions in your journey to growth? For many of us, time passes, days fly by, and we don't track much change. It's time for Your Daily Highlight! What if, each morning, you not only journal a frog to eat (something important but annoying), but ALSO lay out a Daily Highlight (something important and awesome). You can look back at the end of the week and notice 7 really great things you...
