Do You See All the Possibilities? …DTH Episode 132 with Victoria Rader

Do You See All the Possibilities?

Sometimes the greatest challenge we face is not what we don’t have or cannot do, but not seeing all the possibilities available to us. Wanting what we don’t have, or not being able to do something we desire can be cause for great frustration, and in some cases, Hate. Sometimes it takes the right coach in order for you to see all the possibilities. Are you as happy as you’d like to be? Is your life one of Peace, Purpose and Prosperity? Do you see all the possibilities?

Grace, Gratitude, Respect and Integrity… DTH Episode 128

Do you approach all of your personal interactions with grace, gratitude, respect and integrity mean to you? I make the statement every week on the DTH podcast that we cannot control everything that happens to us in life, but we can control how we react to it. This is really one of the personal accountability pieces that I refer to so often. Imagine if we all approached our personal interactions using these principles.

Grace

As written in an article in Christianity.com,  Grace is the Hebrew word chanan or the Greek word charis, meaning “the state of kindness and favor toward someone, often with a focus on a benefit given to the object.” (Strong’s Greek 5485). 

Gratitude

Something I talk about probably more often than anything else on the DTH podcast. Gratitude is the quality of being thankful and having a readiness for showing appreciation. I often contend that you cannot be a happy person without being a grateful person.

Respect

Respect is really about treating someone with admiration and appreciation and seeing the humanity within them as a person.

Integrity

Having a strong sense of integrity means you are a person who is honest and of strong moral character.

If all people were to approach their personal interactions with these 4 important principles, can you imagine how much better the world in which we live would be? so again, do you approach all of your personal interactions with grace, gratitude, respect and integrity?

Sometimes the Prize is the Experience Itself… DTH Episode 122

Sometimes the prize is the experience itself. In this quick episode, I take on the defeatist attitude that unless you’re going to win, why bother trying. That may be an exaggeration of the way it was said, but this comes as a result of something someone said to my wife recently regarding my participation in a BBQ contest.

So why do people compete in events when they know they have very little, if any chance of winning? Sometimes the prize is the experience itself. I use as an example, the Boston Marathon. Now, I’m in no way comparing a local BBQ contest to the Boston Marathon. To be clear, this is about the lesson, not the contest itself. 

The episode is short. I believe the lesson is valuable. I hope you find as much value in the lesson as I did thinking about it. Every contest is not just about winning. Sometimes the experience is all that really matters. Get out there, have some fun! The world needs more of it!!

Episode 115: Is Hate Getting in the Way of you Winning At Life? …with Dylan Rogers

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “what is the best way for me to obtain and secure a meaningful life?”. “Is hate getting in the way of me winning at life?”
 
 What is a meaningful life?
People find meaning in all different sorts of ways. For some, it’s family, some it’s career. For some it’s money and and for many, it’s just a matter of their own definition of success. As for this week’s guest, he knew that to secure a meaningful life, he must secure a happy life. With a background in engineering, he was determined to break down the most profound obstacles to happiness and fix the problem. What is the problem? Hate…

Episode 107: Don’t Be Mad That It’s Over, Be Grateful That It Happened

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, and it may sound cliche, “Don’t be mad that it’s over, be glad that it happened.” Now, quite often this is said in regards to a relationship that has ended,  but this is not one of those times…

This week I was devastated by some revelations having to do with my deer camp. Those who’ve listened to the podcast with any regularity for any amount of time know that my deer camp was very much my happy place and deer hunting is something I most look forward to each and every year. Check out this episode to find out more about what happened. 

I also dive more into mindset, gratitude and some numbers associated with a study about the number of thoughts a person has on average each day, how many of them are negative and how much of that negative thinking is just recycled negativity from the day before. This is quite important because only we as individuals have the power to change this for ourselves…

This episode also includes some exciting updates on Braver Angels events that are taking place, including a project I’m currently involved in with the former director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins… Links Below….
