The Steve Weatherford Show | The Secrets To A High Performance Life
If you have more than you need, build a bigger table. Not a bigger fence. This is Jim Sabellico's life philosophy, and it's powerful. We've known each other for four years, and I know that he values relationships in a unique way, as I do myself. This is why I invited him to the podcast. You will listen to his riveting story, his family's core values and his no-half-cakes standard for living intentionally. Some people don't know what to do next. They don't know the "what." But you don't have to know it. The relationship philosophy of "your alignments determined your assignments" flips that on its head. You don't have to worry about the "what." If you are clear about the "who," meaning finding people who value what you value and have the fruit you want, your next move will be clear. All your doubts evaporate when you surround yourself with the right people. God has a specific design for your life; you are supposed to be the best version of yourself. So you have to spend your life becoming that. And, one day, you will meet the person you are supposed to be. The way to discover your best version and see possibilities is through relationships. This episode will inspire you to find the right tribe. God bless you. “Success is not dollars in the bank. It's investing in people.” – Jim Sabellico In this Episode: Jim's life philosophy Generosity as a core value Jim's background and first business No half-caking philosophy in celebrating life Story of how we met Serving people by focusing on purpose Jim's recipe for joy and fulfillment And more… Resources Mentioned: Pastor Keith - https://keithcraft.org/ Connect with Steve: Twitter - https://twitter.com/weatherford5 LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/steve-weatherford-75625253/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Official.Steve.Weatherford/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/weatherford5/?hl=en Youtube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9Dms2vyzJwiN4UltE2_N7g Connect with Jim Sabellico: Website - https://legiit.com/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jimsabellico/

One of the concepts of Kingdom finances is looking at the mission rather than the need. As we put the mission first, there is a godly contentment that comes. God does not want to raise up need-meeters; He wants to raise up givers. If you are not free to be a giver, you will never be satisfied or content.

What is generosity? Is Generosity just money? Why does God want my money? The truth is that generosity is not just money, and that God doesn't want your money, he wants your heart, which is attached to your money.
Timothy Keller Sermons Podcast by Gospel in Life
How do you face economic scarcity? The little book of Habakkuk talks about how to handle evil times, and in particular, it describes an economic disaster. Habakkuk's answer for dealing with economic scarcity is fuller than you might think because he alludes to the Old Testament principle of the firstfruits, where you were supposed to give the firstfruits of your harvest to God. But here, Habakkuk brings up the possibility of having no harvest at all. We're going to learn three things about financial giving: 1) you should give sacrificially, not just out of surplus, 2) you should give joyfully, not just out of duty, and 3) you should give graciously. This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 31, 2009. Series: Living by Faith in Troubled Times. Scripture: Habakkuk 3.

Anxiety, Generosity, & Bird Watching // What If Jesus Was Serious? // John Isemann by Sunday Podcast
It's so easy to let the weightiness of life affect what should be second nature to us. Having a great day and someone asks you for a dollar? That's easy enough. Having a bad day on the heels of a bad week and someone asks you for the same dollar? You might not find yourself at the same answer as easily. But the truth? Generosity, and the compassion that empowers it, are at the center point of who we're called to be as believers, who God is, and what He's called us to extend of ourselves. Each opportunity to be generous, especially when it costs us, is invitation straight from Heaven to know more of Him and His heart.

Most people in today's world live in a safe environment. We owe a lot to the law enforcement professionals that ensure it and it's interesting to understand what that type of career entails. Many of the guests we have on the show are focused on building something to make a positive impact in the world. In this episode, we are taking a different approach. Jim Lewis spent over 25 years making an impact by stopping people who were making a negative impact. You could say it was addition by subtraction. He shared some amazing insight about a career as a cop and FBI agent and dropped some gems on leadership that applies in any area of life.

An act of faith that the Divine will provide what we need is behind a vow of poverty taken in some religious orders. Generosity is primary in bodhisattva practice. By paying a little more, we sometimes end up supporting someone rather than getting the best deal. We can track ways we are stingy—with our love, power, graciousness, money. Consumer culture has a big part in creating our personalities and view of money. We can observe how we are with money without judgment. Are our lives more important than money or is money more important than our lives? Spiritual practice has to do with accepting what is as it is and being easeful with what we have. Money represents safety in the way that mother represents safety to a child. Grasping or holding on is the cause of suffering in Buddhism and a common way of relating to money. What are we really holding on to? Patterns of dealing with money get passed on through generations. What messages did we receive about money? Not wasting resources is a spiritual principle. Money is energy, and getting bigger in relationship with money can bring up aspects of ourselves that we are not in touch with. Money is a means to an end, not an end in itself. How can we spiritually profit through use of money? Supporting sources of our spiritual nourishment and something greater than ourselves can create a fluid and friendly relationship with money based on love and gratitude for the Divine. Tithing has been a principle in every tradition. We are trustees and not possessors of wealth. Intention comes first and money follows. We “pay for our work” with honesty and vulnerability, not just money. Money can show us ways that we undervalue ourselves. What we give to others, we give to ourselves.

Generosity is a principle. Being a good steward enables us to be generous, and wisdom affords us the ability to be good stewards. When we carry ourselves in this standard, we are compelled to be intentional with the items placed in our possession. It all stems from being willing to wait on the word from God to provide the direction, the wisdom and the instruction of a good steward.
Season two kicks off with Jarl Mohn, my former boss at E! Entertainment Television and retired CEO of NPR. Jarl Mohn describes the evolution of his fascinating career in the media industry -- that stemmed from his experience in a group home as a child and a love of radio as his escape. Our focal points were social justice issues in LA County, the importance of the arts and emerging artists in LA, and Jarl Mohn's personal art collection, including a three and a quarter ton Michael Heizer rock. We get a pro tip on how to open up our minds and creativity by looking at art! Jarl also explains his belief in the unique value of public radio today, as well as the importance of good content across all media platforms in a world of subscription competition. We discuss the progress and challenges of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the media industry, the value of good content marketing and the power of good communication and relationship-building by executives. To wrap it up, you'll learn the funny story behind the internet sensation of socks featuring Jarl's face! So, this is a true head to toe interview with one of the best in the business. This is an edited version of an episode of my podcast, "Insider Interviews" in which Jarl focused more on the business of media. For It's Quite a Living, I'm including extra content about his personal side, including more on his experience in foster care, coinciding with National Foster Care Month.

You won't want to miss hearing the story of Jonathan Almonte's life—born in poverty in the Dominican Republic, unable to attend school, burdened with medical challenges, and contemplated becoming part of a gang—all interrupted in the best way by God caring for him through a local church, Compassion International, and his sponsor. Not only was Jonathan's life changed, but his family came to know Christ as well. And all this came about because of the way God used a woman from Michigan named Jamie, who chose to sponsor a child in her 20s instead of getting a new car. How can you share what God has given you to bless others and point them to Jesus? We'd love to challenge you to consider sponsoring a child through Compassion International as a way to practically love others.

The Coaching Your Family Relationships Podcast
Episode 101 - Finding Joy part 8 - GenerosityGenerosity is the 8th and final pillar of joy. It is a culmination of all the other pillars. When you can see with perspective, humility and humor, when you accept reality and not fight against it, when you can forgive yourself and others, be grateful for all you've been given, show compassion for life itself, you are being generous. Joy is making space for your whole human life, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and continuing to move forward.Take aways:#1 - What you focus on will grow bigger. With yourself and with others. Focusing on the good and being generous with yourself and others is not burying your head in the sand. It is purposefully choosing to see and emphasize the good. When you do this, it will grow. #2 - When your life is being contracted or desolated, be generous with how you treat yourself. Be generous with kindness, compassion, thoughts, and actions. When you see others in desolation or contraction, exercise generosity with them too. The give and take of your life and others lives is our common humanity and it bonds us together. Challenge:Ask yourself: How can I feel generosity today for my trials? How can I transform my problem into an opportunity to give to others? When we give joy to others, we experience joy ourselves. We are all spiritually connected and when we give to others, it benefits everyone, including ourselves. Are you the parent of a young adult? Were you surprised when you got to this stage of life that it's harder to be the parent of a young adult than the parent of a teenager? I sure was. Here's the thing – you can't parent your young adult the same way your parents did. If you try to do that, you could do some real damage to your relationship with them. If this is you, I have a free training for you: “10 Important Tips to Improve Your Relationship with Your Young Adult.” Click here to download your free copyYou'll be surprised at some of these tips, and you'll feel like you finally have a road map to navigate this tricky time in your life and your child's life.

In this episode, Jeff and Sid discuss: Taking responsibility for the company early in his career. Managing salary and transitions in a family-owned business. Creating a family-focused priority when running your business. Co-creating your life and generosity with God. Key Takeaways: When a leader moves on, there are a lot of dynamics and the human elements are just as important as any business elements. Create a home life that is grounding for you. Focus your life on your family and keep your relationships strong and it will help you business. Set the guardrails to let your business work for you, not you working for your business. If you don't set the boundaries it is more likely to consume you. Giving in education is a way to help future generations get a better start and a stronger foundation. "The best gift to my kids and grandkids is to give them a good start, but not to make it where they are trust fund babies. Think instead, how can I use these funds to empower other places and help my kids see that it is a good thing to do?" — Sid Jansma Jr. About Sid Jansma Jr.: Sid's oil patch experience began in 1959 working part-time for his dad as a roustabout. So he started at the bottom! Four years at Calvin College resulted in a degree in philosophy and economics, and in a year at U of M, he earned an MBA. He then joined Wolverine Gas and Oil Company (the family business founded by his father in 1948) full-time for the next 49 years. Sid also volunteers for the energy industry at both the state and national levels. At various times, he's been chairman of the Michigan Oil and Gas Association, chairman of the Independent Petroleum Association of America's Tax Committee, chairman of the Environment and Safety Committee, and on the Board of Directors of the American Petroleum Institute.

It could be the end of a relationship. Or a betrayal of trust of some kind. The end of a friendship or a betrayal of trust in one. Someone you trusted at work, or your boss, didn't have your back. A family member. A client or business associate. We're all human and we all get hurt sometimes. Whether it be intentional or not. But when these things happen, how do we make sure we don't close ourselves off and go into protection mode to the point that we can never have those trusting relationships or deep connections again? Or if we have a bad experience with a client, how do we make sure we don't unconsciously fear the next one? Because that's what we're doing right? Unconsciously projecting our previous experiences onto new ones. We do this our whole lives, until we're conscious of it. And when it comes to having what we want, whether that be a fulfilling career, relationship, friendships etc our nervous system is always scanning for threat. Scanning and assessing whether someone or something is going to cause us pain or be a threat to our identity and ego. So this sounds like something to work on when it comes to living the life you want to, and are capable of, right? Good old self sabotage. We're getting in our own way. And it makes perfect sense based on what's happened to us previously and what we've made that mean. But it's not going to help us live full and happy lives in the long run. So we need to take a little look and decode it. Often this feels easier said than done! The biggest thing to bear in mind is be kind to yourself and practice self compassion. It makes perfect sense on a biological level why it would feel hard to trust again. Your nervous system is doing its job. So that's a win. But now you need to consciously work with it to make sure your path of least resistance doesn't become fear and mistrust, because that's not going to help anyone. So where do we start? We start by making sure we're prioritising the things that calm our nervous system. Heartmath is ALWAYS my go to in the moment. I also know I need to make sure I prioritise movement and being around water and making sure I'm outside. All of those I find incredibly regulating. Doing these things in general are always, always going to be helpful but when you're thinking about the situation that hurt you, or the potential that another situation might, you'll be sending the signals of safety to your brain and nervous system. The biggest thing for me is always remembering that people and situations are always there to teach you lessons. I was talking to a friend of mine about it being an upwards spiral, you'll continue having to re-learn the same lessons until you REALLY learn them. So question yourself, what could this be trying to teach you? What good could come from it? What amazing things COULD it lead to IF you stay open? Do you really want to shut yourself off from something incredible because it might cause you pain again? Which side tips the balance for you? The potential for a happy, fulfilled life with everything you want, or the potential pain of it not working out? We're human and we have negativity bias and we're always unconsciously going to try and avoid pain. But we can choose to consciously move towards what we want in spite of the threat of pain. Remaining open after a painful experience is a big act of trust. And that might already be feeling fragile in other ways. You might have lost some trust in other people, in your own judgement, or maybe even the universe or whomever/whatever you believe in yourself. And that's hard. There's no denying that. And you get to feel all the feelings around that. In fact, I'd say that's an absolutely essential part of the process. But don't stay there. Don't let it build into anger and resentment. Don't tar everyone with the same brush. When you're in the moment and moving towards a situation that COULD end up hurting you again, ask yourself, am I reacting to what's happening right in front of me right now? Or a moment from the past? What positive lessons did you learn that ALREADY means this situation won't be the same? I was listening to a podcast of Brene Brown talking about the anatomy of trust and she nailed it as always. She talks about how trust is made up of 7 different components that spell out the word BRAVING. Because at the end of the day, trusting after being hurt IS brave. It's vulnerable. So BRAVING stands for the following; Boundaries - If you're clearly communicating them and someone is consistently trampling all over them. They do not deserve your trust. If they don't respect your boundaries or can't have a clear and open conversation about any potential compromise or new perspectives then they do not deserve your trust and it tells you everything you need to know. This comes to physical, emotional and sexual boundaries. Reliability - If someone consistently doesn't follow through on what they say they will do, you will never be able to create trust with that person. There is no safety or security there. This counts across all levels of interpersonal relationships…including yourself. Keep your promises to yourself and watch some serious magic unfold. Accountability - This counts both ways. Can you own your own stuff? Can you take responsibility for your own actions and apologise? Can they? Do they? Vault - I love this one. If someone gives you someone else's secrets, how can you trust them with yours? Simple really. Gossip, as fun as it can be, is a recipe for not feeling safe with someone. Notice how you feel if you stop doing it. Integrity - Are your words, actions and behaviour in line with your intentions. Do you feel someone lives their values? I said this to my friend the other day too. It's about show me, don't tell me. What are they SHOWING you. How do you FEEL when you're with them? There is a section of the brain that literally scans for incongruence. These are the subtle clues we pick up on physically. We can be over attuned to them when we've been hurt, this doesn't mean we can ignore them but a healthy deep dive into what might be going on is always a good call. Non-Judgement - This is both parties again. Do you feel like you can share openly with a person, and they you? Do you fear being judged? Do you feel you can set boundaries and have a healthy debate without fear of being abandoned? All huge clues to look for while keeping yourself open. Generosity. - I love this one. In this context she's talking about assuming the best in people. Being more generous in our assumptions around people's words, behaviour and intentions. Being conscious of when we might be putting something on someone that's actually nothing to do with them. You have to know your non-negotiables. You have to remain self-aware. Remember it takes time, go at your own pace. Did anything amazing in life ever come without any risk? Fx
The Daniel Gomez Inspires Show
“You have to be a million dollar man; you have to be a million dollar woman, you have to be a million dollar business owner to sustain a million dollar business." —Daniel Gomez If you're serious about becoming a millionaire, you need to start by developing the right mindset and character. It's not just about making money - it's about becoming the best version of yourself and creating value for others. This means thinking big, taking risks, and never giving up.

With the right mindset and character, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to and live the life of your dreams. In this episode, we will dive deeper into every circuit of a millionaire's mind to understand how they really think and how they build character traits that set them up for a higher level of success.
