Faith in Jesus is what enables you to face anything and come out as more than a conqueror. God values your faith so much that he sends frequent troubles so that it'll be strengthened. Faith gives the victory when, through your hardships, you remain steadfast and value Jesus above everything else.
Jesus knows that you are prone to be discouraged when praying. If you have trouble praying, you have an advocate who intercedes alongside you and cheers you on, making the most of your weak prayers. He is always for you, never against you. Do not lose heart!
Your hard exterior may have gotten you to this point, but it won't get you to the next level! It's time to stop letting our hardship and trauma define us and start viewing it as a stepping stone and reference point for the success and impact we have in the lives of others!
Praying without ceasing means to pray in season or out of season, so that every moment is as fruitful as possible. You are to be in constant communication with God. Ask God to open your eyes to the kingdom work he is doing all around you, every minute.
One of the best things we can do is remain dedicated to the Lord through hardships! When things don't turn out our way and we remain faithful to the Lord, we prove beyond a doubt that we're dedicated solely to Him. We look to the Bible for examples of what it looks like to remain dedicated to the Lord through hardships. Our hope is that your faith and dedication to the Lord would be strengthened today!
As we settle into the new year, with hopefully a slightly new and improved daily routine, I always think it's a good idea to take a few minutes and go over in our heads, our relationship with mistakes, hardships or failures. It is a relationship you know, and the better we can understand it and how those few words we try to avoid, for some at all costs, are the critical stepping stones to our future successes. Always remember, no mistakes, no hardship, no failures, no successes. You know I love to read and I'd like to share with you a few books and related quotes that may get you thinking a little differently about your relationship with mistakes, self-sabotaging thoughts, and negative thinking, in order to increase the likelihood of totally crushing your short and long-term goals. For the following books I'm going to reference, know that I'm only scratching the surface of all the learning nuggets and goodness from each of the titles. If one connects with you by the end of this episode, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of your own and read it in its entirety. I've put the links below. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and I'll see you soon!!

God has already given you the good life through Christ's redemption. Even suffering fits into God's pattern for your good. Your confidence in Jesus through your trials glorifies and honors him before a watching world, so live a life of faith and trust.
We're following two major stories that are developing today. The first has a global economic impact that could slam your wallet and maybe leave you without a job. We're talking about the U.S. running up against the debt ceiling. The Treasury Department says it's started taking "extraordinary measures" as the government has reached its legal borrowing capacity of more than 31 trillion dollars. A debt default could tank the worldwide economy. We go In Depth. We look at whether President Biden and House Republicans can reach a deal to avoid this disaster and let you know if you should start preparing for the worst. The other big story is Alec Baldwin being charged in the fatal shooting on the Rust movie set in New Mexico. He, along with a weapons specialist, are accused of involuntary manslaughter. We go In Depth into the chilling impact these charges could have on Hollywood and what changes have been made and will be made to keep movie and television sets much safer.

How do you cope when you experience hardship or failure in your life? Going through difficult times or failure exposes our true selves, which leads to more questions: How do you define and measure your worth as a person? What are the motivations that drive you? Where do you get your worth as an individual? Our culture tells us that our worth is all about performance and success. We've somehow gotten personal achievement confused with our value and worth as people. How different would your life be if you did not fear and worry about what others thought of you, if you never had to impress anyone? Today I'd like to share with you the first of 3 talks that I gave back in 2009 after the stock market crash. These talks became the foundation of my book The True Measure of a Man, which continues to impact many lives, both men and women. Learn how to get Chapter 1 of The True Measure of a Man for FREE here.
MOTIVATION // We all experience our personal brand of hardship and sometimes it can feel like we can't see a way through it. I'm here to encourage a bit of self-love and optimism with words of encouragement, why you can actually find peace after hardship, and how you might consider doing it. You're not alone, and you can choose to move forward. —-------------------------------- Check out my new podcast - Tangents with Oli & Jess on Apple Podcasts or Spotify —-------------------------------- Important Links: PATREON - If you are able and willing please offer some support to the show here -- www.patreon.com/simplyoli BOOKS - Grab one of my books on self-empowered living here -- www.simplyoli.com/books YOUTUBE - Get an inside look at life at my personal life & empowered living by subscribing to my SimplyOli vlog channel over on YouTube INSTAGRAM - Send me a DM & say hi over on Instagram @therealsimplyoli Appreciate and love you so much!

TW: As part of John's story and experience, you will hear specific descriptions and terms related to adult themes, including both physical and sexual child abuse, trafficking, and suicide. We do encourage discernment in your decision to listen or with whom you share this episode with. I met John Gibson briefly at the Replanted Conference where he shared his story for the very first time. John is a former competition team member of Valko Brazilian Jiu-Juitsu in Chicago, IL. But at the age of just five years old, he was declared a ward of the state. After 11 homes and 2 group homes, John aged out of the foster care system. Through therapy, mentors, and lots of time, John is able to look back at everything he went through with positivity and hopefulness. I am so grateful to John for his willingness to be open about his life experience, as well as his journey towards healing. Foster care is often a community filled with both hurt and hope, and John's story is an honest testament to that reality. I hope his story provides valuable perspective for your own foster care journey! Show Notes: https://theforgotteninitiative.org/john-gibson-166/ Get 10% off BetterHelp: https://betterhelp.com/tfi

Steven Miller is a Senior Growth Manager on Uber's product team, co-Founder of startup ChatSight, and an angel investor in early stage technology ventures. Steven wants his work efforts to have impact as so many young employees do—he is a “Zillennial” on the cusp of Millennial and Gen Z generations. Steven offers his and his friends' views and learnings from experiences at multiple startups and large corporations about emerging realities and preferences—the new what, why, where, when, and how of work—sought by younger cohorts of workers. KEY TAKEAWAYS [03:10] Steven's own early approach to learning. [03:44] Studying finance, software engineering, and social entrepreneurship, Steven was also interested in having impact. [04:14] Steven focused on outcomes and productivity not work for the sake of it. [05:12] Consulting and banking sounded like “busy work” without impact, so Steven started his own company based on artificial intelligence. [05:42] Steven found it very rewarding to work on a high impact venture even if a moonshot idea. [06:50] Friends on the entrepreneurship path tended to be happier and more fulfilled than those on the corporate path who were generally burned out. [07:27] Impressions that corporate work is how you look like you are working rather than the impact you are achieving. [08:33] Young employees in large corporations often feel disconnected from the impact they want to have. [10:11] Steven has seen promotions given to leaders with larger teams resulting in unnecessary team expansion. [11:25] Larger tech companies ballooned leading to lower profit margins and current layoffs. [12:09] Startup dynamics contrast with few people, more ownership, and investment in efforts to collaborate and create impact. [13:15] Side hustles are Millennials and Gen Zs safety net after growing up seeing their parents' laid off, to improve their financial stability. [14:08] Hardship catalyzed side hustle growth which also fulfills people's desire to invest in themself. [15:26] During the pandemic, the experiment of all remote work allowed interesting development of side hustles. [16:30] The 40-hour work week is so old! [17:08] Why outcomes are more important than hours in an output and knowledge driven world. [18:39] It doesn't make sense to timebox creativity. [20:27] Reason 1 Young workers move jobs: I don't want constraints when I can be productive WFH. [20:49] Reason 2 Young workers move jobs: “Lifers” were shaken up with the recent boom to bust. [21:54] The growth of the creator economy, gig work, and new classifications of employment. [23:03] Steven's views on the new type of struggle between labor and owners. [23:43] Individuals have more voice and empowered to be more creative and not be forced into traditional occupations. [25:35] Steven started at Instacart during the pandemic—fully remote (messy) onboarding! [26:49] Learning to deal with ambiguity and chaos! [27:22} How to be productive when working fully-remote - #1 Communicating well, especially in writing. [27:39] How to be productive when working fully-remote - #2 Being organized. [28:54] Remote/hybrid is a new game and you need to learn the rules to reduce friction. [30:33] Steven shares experiences in startups and big tech companies, including rebuilding the Uber rides business. [31:58] Mixed reviews for the back to the office moves, Steven recognizes that people do enjoy seeing their colleagues occasionally. [33:05] Steven gives Uber empathy credits as they transition in 50 countries, hiccups are inevitable. [34:32] Governments should rethink the idea of “an employee”. [35:52] What DO workers want (looking at balanced and nuanced viewpoints)? [38:10] AI GPTChat essays are not very creative yet – perhaps C minus graded papers! [39:50] Focusing on skills for the future—starting in early education—to develop specializations across many critical needs such as climate change, food insecurity, and energy insecurity. [44:14] IMMEDIATE ACTION TIP: Feed your curiosity engine and understand how the world works. Consider how your 9 to 5 job can give you a level of security and income while you explore other opportunities—a bifurcated approach can be valuable preparing yourself for an uncertain world. RESOURCES You can follow Steven on LinkedIn Twitter @realstevenmiler Chatsight Uber QUOTES “I do think that a lot of fundamental components of the education system are not well suited for this new world.” “I'm not interested in doing work for the sake of doing work. I'm interested in outcomes and impact for the inputs and effort that I put in.” “For a lot of corporations it tends to be more about how you look like you're doing work versus the actual impact that you have.” “All humans want to know that their time is worthwhile in whatever situation or context that they're in.” “The actual value that you bring to the world is your creativity and by nature creativity is a process you can't really timebox.”
Just as an artist uses contrasting colors to draw the viewer's attention, so God uses suffering to draw attention to Christ's character in you. The beauty of Christ in your life will look even more beautiful when it shines through affliction. You are a radiant work of art displaying the glory of Jesus!

Trish Perry is a Results Coach and 10-year breast cancer survivor. Trish helps professionals who have been thrown off track by an unexpected hardship to find their inner power, direction, and balance again to regain success and joy in their lives. Trish WAS that professional 10 years ago, pre-cancer. She had a high-powered job and was raising three kids when multiple adversities hit. She was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a double mastectomy, her 91-year-old father had brain surgery and her sister died of cancer; all within 9 months. Trish's son describes her life in 2 phases: pre-cancer “Corporate Bad Ass Mom” and post-cancer “Zen Mom”. Trish became a coach by accident and adversity and continues coaching with passion and purpose. This is in her “Zen Mom” phase. Since 2015, Trish's coached over 100 leaders to navigate the challenges of life and gain their inner power, balance, and direction to have success and joy in life again. She's also facilitated dozens of workshops and been a keynote speaker to audiences across the US. Trish is also an author. Her new book, “Real, Raw & Relatable” is her journey from “Corporate Bad Ass Mom” to “Zen Mom” launched on October 4, 2022. ✨A few highlights from the show: 1. Cancer is a gift wrapped in sandpaper. 2. Cancer is NOT your fault! 3. Create a "grief list" of people you can call on before something happens. Do it when you are in a good place.
