Story

Most people who try to influence others commit a fatal mistake:

Storytelling.

In this episode, you’ll discover how to harness the power of storytelling to make your dreams (and everyone’s listening) come true. 

Listen now.

You have two choices to make everyday:

You can either choose pride, which leads to destruction, misery, and anger. Or you can choose humility, which leads to blessings, encouragement, and fulfillment.

But humility is the antidote to pride.

And in this episode, you’ll discover how to choose humility (even when it makes you feel weak).

Listen now and receive blessings for the rest of your life.

  • The counterintuitive reason success leads to humiliating failure ([2:53])

  • Why asking for help displays your strength (even if it makes you feel weak) ([9:22])

Legacy 2.0

Everyone wants to pass down a legacy to their children and grandchildren when they pass. But most people get this idea wrong. They think their legacy only means monetary and material items they leave behind. 

After speaking at a couple funerals this past weekend, I had a startling realization:

Your legacy is how you want to be remembered. Your impact is why people will never forget you.

Listen now and start leaving an unforgettable impact everywhere you go. 

Show highlights include:
