Play

burn the boats

We are creatures of comfort, craving the familiar and “normal”. We unconsciously defend – even rationalize – our positions and attitudes as a way of avoiding exposure or risk.

Most times, however, you have to leave safety and security behind and risk everything to commit your life and future to your unknown destiny.

reading between lines

You’ve heard it said many times, “Readers are leaders”

This is absolutely true, however, leading is about more than just filling your head with a lot of stuff; it is about learning, and most importantly, implementing what you learn.

My guest today exemplifies what this looks like in every way! Jeff and I met earlier this year at a Ray Edwards event, and became fast friends. He is a wonderful leader, and has a beautiful heart.

Most notably, he is making a HUGE impact in our world.

I am incredibly excited to revisit his interview on the program. Let’s go right now to my exclusive interview with Jeff Brown.

#241: Monday Mastery – The Double Minded Dilemma

Play

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

When we see what we want or even need to do, sometimes our head says yes but it is disconnected from our heart and we’re not sure we can do what we really want or need. Doubt leads to hesitation. Hesitation leads to failure. Failure creates shame and condemnation. Simply said, double mindedness leads to failure and shame! Let’s switch this around to thinking clearly and propelling us to success.
