Jumpstart - How to Love a Tiger

Jumpstart - How to Love a Tiger

April 22, 2021

Yesterday I saw the most amazing thing on the web -- totally blew me away.

It’s a slow-motion video of a snow leopard pouncing on a deer at the edge of a cliff and the two of them tumbling hundreds of feet down the rocks below.

Throughout the bone-crushing ordeal, the leopard never releases its jaws from the deer.  It’s as if they’re one animal.

The question in today’s JumpStart are:

  • Who has a hold on your life potentially dragging it over a cliff?
  • Can you “Love a Tiger from a Distance?”
  • Can you forgive without reconciliation?

Today, learn to forgive and to stay away from the tigers in your life >>>

Jumpstart - You’re Not Going to Land There

Jumpstart - You’re Not Going to Land There

April 21, 2021

The great Brian Tracy says, “Anyone on top didn’t just land there.” 

I was reminded of the truth of that listening to David Spade interview Jerry Seinfeld for his podcast.

It’s so easy to think of comedians as just naturally “funny guys” and to dismiss them as incredibly hard-working and often painfully introverted souls who work their entire lives for what comics call a “tight 10.”

Discover:

  • How the people who make it look easy are often the hardest-working
  • How to use this knowledge to get moving on something you aspire to achieve
  • What the “tight 10” is and how it must always evolve for you to grow

Steve Martin once joked, “Comedy isn’t pretty.”

Well, neither is it easy but then again, nothing worthwhile is ever easy >>>

Jumpstart - “Your Legacy”

Jumpstart - “Your Legacy”

April 19, 2021

As people age, they often consider what legacy they wish to create.

I know that when my father was nearing the end of his life, he engaged in a mad scramble to change how people would remember him (but, sadly it was too late).

Have you ever considered your legacy?

  • If you died today, what will be your legacy?
  • What would you LIKE your legacy to be?
  • What little things can you do starting now to improve your legacy?

We all leave memories and contributions; let’s make sure the memories are loving and the contributions are positive >>>

Jumpstart - I Wonder Why

Jumpstart - I Wonder Why

April 16, 2021

Walt Whitman said, “Be curious, not judgmental” and that’s good advice but there’s only one problem -- it’s not easy, am I right?

Judgments, on the other hand,  are all too easy!  

A judgment settles the matter in our minds once-and-for-all; wherea,s curiosity leaves things open and unsettled which can be challenging for our little brains.

Today let’s expand your brain by learning:

  • Why it’s hard to “question yourself into a fight”
  • How Tim Cook used questions to take apple to nearly a $2 Billion valuation
  • How Ben Franklin used questions to transform his life

The measure of a growing happy person is, believe it nor, his or her acceptance of what they DON’T know>>>

Jumpstart - Radical Acceptance

Jumpstart - Radical Acceptance

April 15, 2021

One of the core concepts of DBT therapy is Radical Acceptance.

Radical acceptance breaks through the resentment and frustration of a given situation and leads to an ability to manage our emotions -- A VITAL SKILL.

Learn:

  • How to accept what you except
  • Why society does NOT want you to accept ANYTHING (it’s called “status quo” and it’s considered bad)
  • How accepting the way things are empowers us to create what we want

To create the life you want, you have to be an energetic match for that life and you can’t get there by resenting where you are now.

Start accepting to starting growing NOW >>>

Jumpstart - “Anxiety Meters”

Jumpstart - “Anxiety Meters”

April 13, 2021

20 years ago when I was still a church minister, I went to a church leadership conference and they showed us a TV commercial for one of the attending megachurches.

I’ve never forgotten that commercial and from that idea, I’ve created the concept of anxiety meters.

Learn: 

  • How considering a person’s level of stress and anxiety can actually calm you down
  • How to interact with someone based on their level of stress and anxiety
  • When it’s best to go away and let everything and everyone settle down

Give this idea a try and you’ll see a HUGE difference in your life right away >>>

Jumpstart - “Blessings”

Jumpstart - “Blessings”

April 12, 2021

When she was a little girl I taught my daughter to say a blessing at each meal and now she’s taught me a simple and profound blessing that grounds me in God’s goodness every time I eat.

In this Jumpstart:

  • Learn the prayer I say before each meal and how it can benefit you
  • How important it is to ground yourself for just a moment with others when you eat
  • How “the blessing” is a ritual that closes one door and opens another

Remember Gandhi’s words, “Prayer is not the idle amusement of old women, properly applied its’ the greatest force in the world.”

Begin using that force to its full advantage starting now >>>

Jumpstart - “Grace”

Jumpstart - “Grace”

April 9, 2021

The other day I was watching a Seinfeld episode in which several characters discussed whether or not Elaine possessed the quality of grace.

Grace is defined as “simple elegance or refinement of movement” or “courteous goodwill” and it’s not the exclusive right of “Downtown Abby” characters. 

Grace is something that’s considered to be for the rich but it’s actually a highly sought-after behavior we can all cultivate.

Today learn:

  • Why grace often decreases in relationships over time
  • How to cultivate the quality of grace
  • How to inject grace into your day

You don’t have to be a princess to demonstrate something the world needs now more than ever: GRACE >>>

JumpStart - Intentions

JumpStart - Intentions

April 8, 2021

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard," - JFK

WOW, now THAT’S an intention, am I right?

From defeating pandemics to putting men on distant planets, human beings have achieved every SERIOUS intention they’ve set.

What about you?

  • Do you (like most people) view an “intention” as a weak goal to “try”
  • What are YOUR intentions?
  • Do you have the same faith in yourself as you did the Covid vaccine would be developed?

Remember that when you “intend” to do something, it’s your reason WHY you’re doing it that determines your success >>>
