Ep 083 - Not Everyone Can Be An Oak Tree

Ep 083 - Not Everyone Can Be An Oak Tree

When you do something — anything at all — for a long time and you’re passionate about it, there’s a tendency to expect others to do it too. Because it’s become routine for you, and you’re comfortable with it, it can be hard to imagine that may not be the case for everyone. Rather than always being the one speaking, be sure to listen as well.

”Not everyone can be an oak tree.” — Carol Hoover

Being consistent dictates results, but of course it’s easy to be consistent with something that you’re good at and you enjoy doing. Learning to get comfortable in uncomfortable situations keeps us humble and more relatable — strengthening our relationships. Realizing where others are coming from takes understanding, awareness, and an ego check.

Ep 079 - Surviving an Active Shooter Assault

Ep 079 - Surviving an Active Shooter Assault

It's pretty hard to “Attack Life” if you're living in fear and anxiety because of extreme violence which seemingly is becoming more prevalent. The US Department of Homeland Security's official recommendation is to “Run, Hide, Fight.” Timothy Spiess, retired Senior Special Agent with the US Secret Service joins us to break that down even further.

There are no guarantees, but here are some practical and tactical things you can do to increase your chances of surviving an assault by an active shooter:

  • Immediately crouch down

  • Seek cover or concealment as quickly as possible

  • If possible, move laterally to the shooter(s) and work your way back to where they have been — typically they don’t return to the entrance or area they came from

  • As a last resort — or the opportunity arises and you feel you’re able to safely attack and neutralize the shooter — commit using any available means and extreme aggression

Most importantly, work on becoming more aware. Eliminate distractions. Get rid of the noise. Having more awareness won’t just make you safer — it will enhance your life in so many ways.

Ep 078 - You Cannot Control Everything

Ep 078 - You Cannot Control Everything

Contrary to what many other podcasts similar to ours are telling you — YOU CAN’T CONTROL CERTAIN THINGS. A trending topic these days seems to be people telling you things such as “Take control of your life!” and “You’re in control of what happens, so take charge!”

While these people are attempting to empower and embolden you — what they’re really doing is setting you up to fall harder when circumstances strike.

Saying you are in control is simply not true. Don’t misunderstand. We are big proponents of energy. In other words, if you work on being positive you’ll see more good things in your life. Alternatively, if you’re a negative person you’ll see a lot of negativity showing up in your world. Either way, things in life are thrown at you — things that you have no control over.

  • Life is a fight — show up and take it on

  • Life isn't as pretty as some would make it out to be

  • What you CAN control is how you choose to handle what you’re dealt

  • Why it’s important to have a support system of faith, family, and friends

  • Why it’s important to maintain a strong mind, a strong body, and a strong spirit

We have no control as to whether or not you are going to SUBSCRIBE to our podcast! All we can do is tell you here are some of the places you can: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts

You’ll benefit by being first to receive every new episode each week. By listening regularly, we’ll all grow together on this journey to strengthen our minds, bodies, and spirits!
