#099: How You Can Reconcile the Past, Re-Engage Your Dreams, and Realize Your Full Potential [Podcast]


Most people never experience the life that is theirs by design. They lose their way, become disillusioned, confused, or have simply given up.

Today, I want to give you a framework for reclaiming your life. The one God designed for you! Today, we’re going to look at How You Can Reconcile the Past, Re-Engage Your Dreams, and Realize Your Full Potential.

We’re inching up on the launch of our The Ties That Bind online course! This is a significant time, not only in my life, but in our company, in getting this message out to take personal healing and development to the world.

I’ve often talked about The Four Cornerstones For Strategic Living (Personal Healing, Personal Discovery, Personal Development, and Personal Deployment), and today I want to dive a little deeper into the Personal Healing part.

Three Major Areas:

There are three major areas that cause us to miss out on living life to the fullest:

  • Past Issues that go unaddressed or remain unresolved
  • Dismissal of – or – Disconnect from the dreams and desires of our heart
  • Limiting Beliefs that cause us to see life through a skewed set of lenses.

So how do we do we approach these areas, and how do we tap into a fuller, more rewarding life?

Reconcile the Past:

  • Take a close, honest look
  • Acknowledge the hurts, disappointments, and failures
  • Forgive those who wronged you
  • Untie yourself from unhealthy and paralyzing connections (unhealthy soul ties)
  • Refuse to allow anyone or anything to keep taking you backwards
  • Walk away from relationships that are holding you back
  • Close the books on the previous chapters, and begin writing a new chapter..

Analyze and Address Limiting Beliefs:

  • Examine the truth as you now see it
  • Identify beliefs and ideas that are restrictive and not serving your overall potential
  • Isolate these beliefs, and systematically erase them
  • Replace them with new truth

Re-Engage Your Dreams:

  • What have you given up on?
  • What dreams or plans did you dismiss or walk away from because life got in the way?
  • Who do you want to meet?
  • Where do you want to travel?
  • Believe again
  • Take steps to re-engage ~ Go For It!

Commit to Personal Growth and Development:

  • Hire a coach/Find a mentor
  • Read/Study
  • Online courses
  • Address incompetency through learning
  • Be willing to start small
  • Develop a strategic plan for your life

Do Something!:

  • Take action
  • Baby steps
  • Walk it out
  • Be accountable
  • Join a mastermind

You CAN reconcile the past, re-engage your dreams, and realize your full potential!
