As a pastor, I’ve listened to plenty of people who shyly look away when I ask what they’re passionate about. They either don’t know, or they believe they’ll give the wrong answer. Why? People have a hard time identifying their passion.
We believe passion is self-focused or introspective and are afraid to identify it. But is it? If we identify our passion, that means we’ll have to do something with it. Most people have bought the lie, ‘I can’t do what I love.’
Writing is such a joy for me. I know it’s been two weeks since I’ve published a regular blog post. I’ve had a couple of podcast episodes. Maybe you’ve thought I have forgotten about you. Truth to tell, I have been insanely busy with family, the World Series, deadlines at the church and publishing a book. Did I mention publishing a book?
Writing books is something I get a lot of joy doing. In-fact, when I see my completed book, I know I have just finished something special. If you would like to get a copy of my new ebook, sign up on the top right of this webpage.
The J. B. Sisam Show is on a hiatus this week as I begin preparing new content for the show. So, I combed through my previous episodes and found one of the most popular ones. Also, when this episode aired, it was called CrossTalk Online Radio – It’s since been changed to The J. B. Sisam show. I hope you enjoy this listener favorite.
In this special encore episode #33 0f the J. B. Sisam Show, we are consistently reminded that one thing begins and another ends. Lies are something that takes away our success. So, why do we believe them?
These lies keep us from pursuing the destiny God has given us. If that’s the case, why do we believe them? In today’s episode, we dive into 5 lies we all believe from time to time that keep us from achieving the success God has destined for us.

Everyone who has ever lived or died had a purpose to fulfill. Everyone has dreams of the future and regrets of the past. But it’s how we live our life that determines our purpose for tomorrow.
When I look or walk through a grave yard I see one thing; countless untold stories, unwritten books, unsung songs, new ideas that have never been formed, or adventures never taken. It breaks my heart when someone doesn’t live to the full potential that God has placed within their lives.
Everyone encounters fear at one point in their life, or another. But when it comes to writing, fear can hold you back from making a difference in someone’s life.
Writing gives us a chance to face our problems head on. That proverbial blank page, idea or desire to write, but not wanting to step into the unknown can be debilitating. There’s nothing wrong with fear. It’s neither good or bad. One thing for sure, we can harness it and succeed.
Facebook, Twitter and you name it social media is all the rage. People feel empowered to share what they want, when they want. But is that how we should be living our lives?
In today’s episode, we’ll be looking at the dangers of posting what we want, versus lifting people up. As leaders, our job is to encourage and empower people to succeed in life. If you truly want to have a voice that people will listen to, you can’t post what you want.
There is one thing that plagues everyone; that one thing is procrastination. There isn’t a problem with it until it stops you from being productive. And everyone knows productivity is the king of getting more done in less time.
Think about your next big project. It has to get done, but you simply don’t want to use your resources on it at this moment. It’s fine to procrastinate every once and a while. But a problem arises when we realize we now have to kill ourselves to accomplish that project on time.
Death is the most certain thing in life. We all are conceived, born, live and die. But, it’s what we do in the middle that truly matters after we’re already gone.
In today’s episode I want to talk about writing down our eulogy. In a sense, if you were to die today, how would those alive and remaining remember you? This is a something I’ve done recently and it has greatly impacted my life, my relationships and my vision for life. Today, I’ll walk you through my process so you can begin designing your own destiny.
Goals, dreams and the future are things that we all want. They elude some, but those who keep their eyes on the prize will cross the finish line with success. But so many people are focusing on the wrong things that their dreams begin to die.
In the craze of Pokémon Go, people have their heads buried in their phones and tablets trying to catch the most rare Pokémon. I recently downloaded the game, and found it was not worth the hype it’s generated. But now all I see is people with their heads down, staring at the wrong thing. They are not walking toward a successful future or goal.
Over the past several weeks I completed a 6-week Sabbatical. This time was set aside to recharge, refresh and re-engage with my passions. But to top off the experience with a cherry on top, my wife and I took a much needed family vacation.
The challenge of taking a vacation, is finding the time, but also unplugging from modern life. Computers, phones and tablets are challenging to get rid of, because we’re always needed to be plugged into the matrix. In today’s episode, I want to walk you through 7 things you can do to recharge your batteries and come back from vacation refreshed and stress free.
