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

3/25/2019
More
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
More
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...

Ep. 16 - Closing the Door

3/14/2019

Are there areas in your life where it is time to close the door? Maybe you've almost closed it many times, and maybe you consider it "basically closed" now. But those approaches have far too easily failed, and the door swings right back open. It is time to resolve things, to make a decision, close and lock the door on it, and move on. If you'd like to know more about how and when to do that, give episode 16 a look! - How to close the door on bad behavior for good. - What is the difference...

Ep. 15 - Count Your Pronouns

What if I promised you $100/day for the rest of your life? And all you had to do was speak more about others than yourself, even by the slightest margin, to receive it. How would that go? If you want an indication on that, take special note of your pronouns. They always tell the story.

Ep. 14 - Motion is Lotion

3/7/2019

If we move, we live. If we stop moving... well that's either the end, or the beginning of the end. But good new: motion is lotion! God built our bodies to be active, to have purpose, to be useful in His service! God wants you to enjoy health and freedom from pain so that you can enjoy His blessings and apply yourself to His work. But are you willing to get in motion and make all that possible? Let's talk about a few great success stories and end with one simple recommendation that can get...

Parents! We have work to do! God has asked us to train our children to understand His authority. We are showing them what it will be like as adults to be children of God. Should that include yelling at kids? Should that include ignoring bad behavior? Let's discuss that and employ one very specific tip that can make a huge difference in raising our children in the discipline and instruction of our great God! - Why you should stop yelling at your kids! - How to stop yelling at your kids and...

Something just happens to me when I get behind the wheel. It's like I step into my own Me-Bubble and lose all perspective. At least, that's the way it used to be!

Ep. 11 - Eat That Frog

2/25/2019
More
It is important to set a course for growth every single day. Setting aside 60 minutes in the morning is an incredible way to do that (Ep. 2 - One Great Hour). Part of that planning is to lay out special goals and tasks for the day. Truthfully, some of those are important, but not very fun. They often get pushed back day after day and mounded up with others like them. However, if you can embrace the simple idea to Eat That Frog, a title taken from a famous Mark Twain quote, you can start your...

Ep. 10 - The One Thing

2/21/2019
More
Every day we have situations, environments and conversations happening in our lives. There are many things said and done and felt and thought. However, there is often very little focus on the outcomes we desire in those days, situations, environments or conversations. So we get affected by outside influences and don't see growth. However, with just the simple practice of consciously identifying The One Thing before those events, we can take control of the flow, the tone, and help create...

Ep. 9 - Asking Beautiful Questions

2/18/2019
More
Little kids ask the most awesome questions! They want to know things, things way beyond their comprehension, and they process the answers to build greater intellect. Sadly, many people stop doing this after the age of about 7. But if we can keep that spirit of wonder, inquisitiveness, and limitless possibilities, we can learn and grow in tremendous ways. More specifically, we can approach God so much better, asking Him big and beautiful things, accessing His limitless power and seeing His...
