Life Lessons From John Maxwell’s Father - Part 3

Life Lessons From John Maxwell’s Father - Part 3

October 27, 2020

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller, Martevious Young and I is in response to a talk from John Maxwell about lessons from his father Melvin. He truly learned a tremendous amount of the wisdom he teaches and walks in from his father, which makes this legacy series so powerful. Over the next few episodes, we will dive into this series and really look at everything he learned and how we can apply those principles in our own lives to leave an amazing legacy of our own.

Here are some of the high points from this third episode:

Be intentional, be purposeful and be focused! To whom much is given, much is required. With great power comes great responsibility.

Live a life of generosity with your TIME, your TREASURE and your TALENTS. We need to be a river and not a reservoir... are we approaching life with open hands or closed fists? Rivers bring LIFE and reservoirs do not. Give GOD the credit. Acknowledge that every gift you've been given comes from God - he is the source of every good and perfect gift.

Understand the relationship between you and the gifts you've received from God.

Love and read God's word - it has the power to transform your life!!

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller, Martevious Young and I is in response to a talk from John Maxwell about lessons from his father Melvin. He truly learned a tremendous amount of the wisdom he teaches and walks in from his father, which makes this legacy series so powerful. Over the next few episodes, we will dive into this series and really look at everything he learned and how we can apply those principles in our own lives to leave an amazing legacy of our own.

Here are some of the high points from this second episode:

You don't have to be like me for me to VALUE you. If you only talk to people who agree with you, who are you actually reaching?

Pour good things into people. Live in such a way that you are adding something that HELPS them. What you think may be small, might be huge for someone else! Encouragement draws people to you -- if you want to have a team around you that love spending time around you, become a person who constantly encourages others. How do you know people need encouragement... if they are BREATHING!! We all need it!

Work Hard: Doing the right things always compounds into something positive. Sometimes, you have to do the right thing for a significant amount of time before it creates that clear positive momentum you're looking for. Be the person who is known for putting in the effort, but also create rhythms that allow you to work smart!

"Options" is one of John's favorite words... because there are often many ways to get to the destination you feel called to run after. 

Trust and obey God. Period.

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller, Martevious Young and I is in response to a talk from John Maxwell about lessons from his father Melvin. He truly learned a tremendous amount of the wisdom he teaches and walks in from his father, which makes this legacy series so powerful. Over the next few episodes, we will dive into this series and really look at everything he learned and how we can apply those principles in our own lives to leave an amazing legacy of our own.

Here are some of the high points from this first episode:

You are a PERSON OF VALUE! From that perspective, we each CAN choose to add value to the people around us EVERY single day! People will forget what you said and what you did, but they won't forget how you made them feel. This isn't complicated - noticing someone and engaging them in a thoughtful conversation can go a long way!

Travel light: You can't carry a bunch of baggage to the mountain of success. There is so much that we tend to carry that compounds the difficulty of every step we take toward where we are called to go. 

Pray without ceasing. Have an ongoing conversation with God. Give God the opportunity to intervene by bringing your concerns to him in prayer!

Build people up even when they are trying to tear you down -- take the HIGH ROAD!

You are always leading people somewhere - so where are the people you are leading headed?

Sometimes your life will be the only Bible that people around you will get to read.

 

Momentum - The Compound Effect - Creating Wealth

Momentum - The Compound Effect - Creating Wealth

October 9, 2020

This concept can transform your business and your LIFE if you'll listen, learn and apply it!! Buckle up, because this is going to be a ride! 🚨🚨🚨

What happens 🤔 when you consistently do your minimum and stick with it for 12 months...

📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅📅

Generally, not much at first. There is a learning curve AND it's HARD to see any momentum and believe that this is really working because small gains don't look like much at the beginning!

But if you understand the law of marginal gains and stay the course - this is what your journey can look like! 📈📈📈

Keys to Creating Wealth in 2020

Keys to Creating Wealth in 2020

October 7, 2020

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller, Martevious Young and I is in response to a talk from Ed Mylett about how to create wealth in this new world that 2020 has become.

Here are some of the high points:

You need to be diverse in two areas of your life - your circle and your experiences. Keep your circle tight - fight for the people who will support and encourage you in who you are and what you stand for.

Human beings are a GIFT! God created us on purpose and with purpose for his name and his glory!

So many amazing experiences are actually FREE and don't even require a cost of admission... going on a walk in a park, a hike in the woods, engaging in healthy conversations with incredible people in your life and so much more.

We tend to want to stay inside our bubble and surround ourselves with people who are most like us... but if you want to grow, we must be willing to spend time with people who are DIFFERENT than we are!

Are you a quitter because others are quitters, or will you stay the course when the going gets tough?!

Hack Your Brain

Hack Your Brain

September 29, 2020

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller and I is in response to a solid talk from David Bayer about how to Hack Your Brain. This session is FANTASTIC and can apply to so many different areas of your life!

Here are some of the high points:

Our minds have to be constantly worked, JUST like we have to consistently work out our bodies to stay strong and agile.

DOING the work is different than KNOWING what to do!

Don't develop a personal development hangover - there is so much danger in learning consistently without ever applying the knowledge.

We need to LEARN then DO then MODEL then TEACH!

Our brain is a GOAL achieving machine! We have to give new meaning to our experiences in order to continue to grow our mindset in the right way.

Your mindset is the reason WHY or WHY NOT to do something. It shapes your motivations and your behaviors at the deepest level of who you become.

Whatever you believe, that is what you will direct your actions to!

Beliefs - thoughts - actions - results

Leadership Principles From The Last Dance

Leadership Principles From The Last Dance

September 23, 2020

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller and Martevious Young and I is in response to an incredible message from John Maxwell about all the leadership lessons we can learn from the life of Michael Jordan portrayed through The Last Dance.

 

Here are some of the high points:

Experience is NOT the best teacher - you have to choose to LEARN from your experience in order to get BETTER. Sometimes wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes all by itself.

There may have been 20-25 basketball players that had MORE talent than Michael Jordan... what made him great wasn't his level of talent. It was how hungry he was to be the best and to constantly be improving. 

The margin between winning and losing is SO small. The daily disciplines over time are what separate those who win and those who lose. It's the tiny decisions that seem to make no difference in the moment that make ALL the difference over time. 

Patience vs. Pressure -- If we put too much pressure on someone, we will repel them. We have to have the patience to lead people with the amount of weight they can handle in the season they are in. 

Mental toughness is the CORE of a champion. Our mind is like a garden - if we aren't constantly in there pulling the weeds and adding the fertilizer, we lose ground.

Teamwork // Synergy

Teamwork // Synergy

September 17, 2020

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller and Martevious Young and I is in response to the fifth part of an amazing series from Denis Waitley called Winning For Life. This fifth session is about how a solid team that operates with synergy can accelerate any dream and any organization!

Here are some of the high points:

On a strong and healthy team, everyone achieves more than they can individually.

Quality leadership welcomes input and is open to suggestions from people at every single level of the organization!

Leadership cannot be top down or bottom up -- it has to be circular.

The more power you have, the less you should have to show and use that authority.

The #1 thing that Millennials and Gen Z are asking for is to be heard.

Help your team craft aggressive, but realistic goals that help them take clear action steps daily toward progress!

The intimidation style of command and control leadership has lost its potency as culture has changed!

Discipline: Are You Willing To Pay The Price?! 💪

Discipline: Are You Willing To Pay The Price?! 💪

September 10, 2020

Today's conversation between Chad Kneller and Martevious Young and I is in response to the fourth part of an amazing series from Denis Waitley called Winning For Life. This fourth session is about the importance of discipline and how we all have to decide if we are willing to pay the price!

Here are some of the high points:

"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on however it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." Hebrews 12:11

We don't do what we know, we do what we learn... what we consistently are willing to put the reps in to do! If you only take action when you FEEL like it, you will never produce anything of long term value that can sustain.

Who is in charge of your software? Who trains the way you think and has influence in what you believe? These questions are more important than we could possibly realize.

Habits are submarines - they run silently in our lives DEEP below the surface of who we are! T

he cornerstones of healthy habits:

- A daily dynamic routine over a long period of time.

- Take ownership of healthy and unhealthy habits.

- You have to create the right environments.

VISUALIZATION -- the imagined self. Where do you SEE yourself arriving in the future? There couldn't be a more important question and exercise!
