061: Why you should embrace the 5-hour learning rule. [Podcast]

My thoughts and takeaways from the 2016 Harvest Network International Conference.

Life gets cumbersome and in the way, but what do we do when we hit a wall? In today’s episode, I talk about the wall I’ve hit in my personal life and how I plan on moving forward.

In my six-week sabbatical there are several life lessons I’m learning and applying to my life. But success and results don’t happen overnight, in-fact, they happen with determination and a dedication to seeing results over the long haul. If we want to see success daily, we need to admit that we need God. It’s in that drawing closer to him that allows our minds to clear and him to speak.

It’s in those quiet moments where he’s speaks the loudest, but are we listening? If you truly want the next level it takes deliberate learning and a willing to ask the question; Where do I go from here?

How Shifting Your Mindset Will Help You Accomplish Anything.

3 Ways to stop trying and start succeeding.

One of my favorite movie series of all time is Star Wars. In the second movie, The Empire Strikes Back Luke Skywalker sets out on a journey to find Master Jedi Yoda. In a scene from the movie, Yoda teaches young Luke a powerful lesson on using the force and changing your mental attitude to accomplish amazing goals.

In watching this scene, you find Luke trying to rescue his X-wing fighter. He gives up, not wanting to move forward. He’d moved rocks and stones, but Yoda says he has the power to lift the ship. Luke responds with… “Alright, I’ll give it another try…”
