Show #411: Creating peace to withstand stress and chaos

Life and the world is filled with stress and chaos. We can’t change that. But we can equip ourselves to deal with it, and a foundational necessity is having a place of peace and renewal. Our home. Our closest relationships. How do we go about creating this? In her book, Creating a Haven of Peace, Joanne F. Miller guides us through the key ingredients needed to have a home of peace and relationships of love.

Show #412: Success programming for your brain

Zig is helping us to actually achieve our goals, and it comes down to…us. What we do and don’t do. But don’t rely on sheer will. And definitely don’t rely on happenstance. What are you doing, and not doing, every day…that is leading you? We listen to Zig, then pull out three main points for better digestion.

Show #410: Your next, radical, great decision

Zig talks to us about the number one way to make your goals actually happen. It’s not an action, it’s a…being. Which is good and bad news, depending on…you.

Show #408: Your responsibility to be the hero

Zig says to share your goals for accountability and encouragement, but to be discerning who you share them with. The root of goals…commitment. Why? It helps you overcome the obstacles that WILL come. You’ve got to be hard on yourself, and be the hero.

Show #407: Train your brain and don’t be a jerk

Meditation, from a scientific perspective -- stripping it of candles, incense, outfits and overall hoodoo spirituality.

Show #406: Get halfway to your goal in one hour

Why is it that we put so much effort and time and use tools and resources to run our lives, but we ignore planning our lives?

Show #404: Want radical hope?

Your hope is built on…faith. No faith, no hope. But faith in what? We take a 14-minute commentary from Zig Ziglar on faith and break it down into bite-size pieces. This truly is a root to our personal success, or lack thereof. Thanks to Design Crowd and Earth Class Mail for their support of this episode.

Show #403: You need peer pressure

We also have a lively and controversial discussion on sales.

Show #401: Our future is as big as our hope

“Men and women are limited only by the size of their hope,” Zig cites in this show. We also discuss what Jesus said in Matthew 18:1-4: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
