Have you ever known anyone who, no matter what seems to happen, they always blame someone else? The art of deflection is quite destructive. Take ownership, accountability, and responsibility rather than deflecting those as excuses. When you own it, you can really go places.

#238: Rest – Is It Risk Or Reward?

Practicing A Principle Often Overlooked

Rest

Tired eyes rarely see a good future, and a tired mind rarely makes good decisions.” ~ Mike Murdock

One of the most damning traits of the western culture is an obsession with being busy. There is a false supposition many have bought into: if you are not busy doing something, you are not valuable.

In the US, a staggering percentage of people experience depression, hypertension, disease, and so many other challenges, and so much of this is tied to stress, anxiety, and lack of REST.

This episode, I want to talk to you about real rest: living from a place of stillness and quiet, even in the midst of chaos. I want to talk to you about being intentional with your life (living strategically), and re-centering in the rest that God has provided us. Today, let’s discuss Practicing the Principle of Rest.

The Secret Seeds Of Life

Contained within a single, tiny seed is infinite potential. One seed planted in the ground produces one tree, but one tree produces fruit every season. Within each piece of fruit are multiple seeds. This is exponential multiplication!

Where we choose to plant our seed is going to bring us a harvest, whether we like it or not. The principle is very simple. If you sow generosity, you will reap generosity. If you sow time into something, someone at some point is going to sow time back into you.

The seed is a powerful thing and can explode your success, take you years forward, and set you up for a harvest for years to come. Let’s talk about the different kinds of seeds.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Relationships come and go. As you and I grow and pursue what the Father has for us, we find not everyone is willing to go where we’re called to go.

In this revisited episode I share a little about my journey the last few years, and how along the way it’s been necessary to evaluate relationships and make adjustments in order to continue our progress. I’m thrilled to bring to you my Interview With Dennis McIntee

6 Principles for Getting The Results You Want

You’ve heard it said principles will work for you if you apply them, and these are certainly no exception. They may be a little unorthodox, or different from what you’v heard before, but these principles will work on an entirely different level for you. If you apply them, that is.

Want results? Want a roadmap for your next step? It just so happens these principles will provide that – IF – you apply them.
