Believe it or not, inner security and outer security go hand-in-hand.

As you work to develop your inner security, you will attract people who will support you.

As you seek out people who support you, you begin to feel secure.

Today let’s look at how we can create a security loop to make us feel safe.

What does it mean to be insecure?

And, why are some people insecure in the extreme while others seem fairly unaffected by it.

Today were going to talk about the concept of insecurity, where it comes from, and how to begin to feel the inner security we all crave.

I remember it like it was yesterday.

My first wife, whom I thought was my one and only love, told me that she and I were through.

When I pleaded to know why she responded, “You’re just too insecure.“

My ex hasn’t been the only person to accuse me of being insecure and it used to really sting.

But over the decades of taking a look at the concept of insecurity, I see that everyone suffers from insecurity to some degree.

So, for the next several days I’m going to be talking about insecurity and more importantly how you can become inner secure.

Prayer is a collaborative effort.

Prayer is not a football that we hand off to God and it’s no longer in our possession.

For prayer to be answered we need to maintain faith and effort.

In today’s JumpStart, let me share a fanciful scenario where God responds to the very act of praying

We used to have horses for trailriding.

 

Once, my horse developed colic and we called the vet to come out at 2 o’clock in the morning.

 

Although we had awoken him from sleep, the vet showed up with a smile on his face and proceeded to do some of the most unsavory things to our horse to help heal him.

 

(It included a rubber sleeve that went all the way up to his shoulder – – you figure it out. YECCH)!

 

And in the middle of the night as he worked to save our horse, the vet taught me a valuable lesson.

 

Today let me share that lesson with you so that you can enjoy what you do so much more!

When I was in the fifth grade, my teacher asked all of us to bring in something to read aloud to the class.

My father had a framed poem on his dresser.

The poem really inspired me and I can still remember reading it to the class with maximal inflection on each word so as to have a full inspirational impact.

Chances are, you’ve never heard of “Myself“ by Edgar A Guest.

Today, let me share this powerful poem with you and I promise it will become one of your favorites.

Back when I was a minister, I would often conclude funerals by encouraging those attending to do something good for someone else within 24 hours of the funeral as a way of honoring in the deceased person.

Why?

Because it made the grieving people feel better!

It took the focus off of their loss and put it on helping other people.

Do you want to feel better today? Happier? Less stressed?

Then, make a conscious effort and go out of your way to help someone else.

People misunderstand the story of the tortoise and the hare.

“Slow and steady wins the race“ is half right.

The rabbit didn’t lose the race because he moved forward quickly.

He lost because he slow down when he was ahead.

Hardly anyone ever burned out from pursuing their dreams.

Instead, most people time out.

Imagine what you could accomplish if you were quick like a bunny AND steady as a turtle!

What is love?

How do you encapsulate something so broad sweeping as love?

And if God were to speak on love, what would God say?

In today’s JumpStart, I attempt to answer that question as poetically as I can.

I hope you find it uplifting.

Yesterday, a car right behind me got t-boned in an intersection by a big truck.

CRASH!!

JUST 50 FEET BEHIND ME!

My first thought was, “I wonder if the driver of the truck was texting while driving?”

Last year, I flew to Arizona to speak to a large group of executives and, atypical of me, I rented a sports car.

And, you guessed it, I got a speeding ticket.

But, the GREAT thing was that I took an online safe driving course as a result and what I learned about texting while driving blew my mind.

Driving while texting, which didn’t exist a decade ago, already kills as many people as drinking and driving.

That’s why I took the pledge not to text while driving and you should, too!

https://www.itcanwait.com/

When I get in my car, I select what I want to listen to and then I put my phone out of reach -- and you should give it a try.

You are far too important to die young, spend your life disabled, or ruin the life of another person by causing an accident.

Don’t text and drive.

Take the pledge.
