I received a head kick with two seconds to go, and two seconds just wasn't enough to get the points back.”Jordan was on the pathway to Tokyo Olympics 2020 when he missed his dream by two seconds. Rather than wallow in the disappointment Jordan has shown incredible resilience to jump back up and keep going. Jordan was very aware of the risks in this sport.

For sixty-eight days, he travelled by bicycle and on foot to connect the lowest point on the African continent to the summit of its highest mountain, following the Great Rift Valley from the Afar Depression through the Horn of Africa. Traveling alone after finishing his Peace Corps service, he faced the physical demands of cycling through four countries, growing uncertainty as the Arab Spring gripped the continent, and the effects of his own post-traumatic stress from four intense years of working in crisis/disaster management in the USA and his international work in the Peace Corps.  We also discuss how his 10-year-old beginner mountain bike stood up to the harsh road and weather conditions, the kit he took, how he made provisions for water and food, and some of the hair-raising experiences he had cycling including being chased by a local woman with a seven feet spear, before being met with the ultimate challenge: climbing Mount Kilimanjaro!Kyle Henning was worn in Buffalo, New York, USA, and has spent part of his career working in the Peace Corps service and has recently returned to Washington after being based in South America for the Department of State.  You can follow Kyle on Instagram at @FromAfarBook or email him at FromAfarBook@gmail.comOther Links: "From Afar" by Kyle Henning is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats:https://www.amazon.com/Afar-human-powered-adventure-continent-mountain-ebook/dp/B0946CXP7Q  100% of profits from sales of "From Afar" go to two charities: New Day Children's Centre, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia: https://ndccethiopia.org.uk/ AmeriCorps Saint Louis Emergency Response Team: https://www.americorps-stl.org/ Find out more at www.ruthmillingtonauthor.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/ruthmillingtonauthor/Twitter: https://twitter.com/RuthMillington1Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ruth.millington.52/Share Your Story  Have an extreme travel story to tell?

If the worst things happen in your life, are you able to cultivate joy? Could you find joy in any circumstance? Today's guest, J.T. Jester, is a young entrepreneur, philanthropist, podcaster, and inspirational speaker based in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. A graduate of High Point University in North Carolina, JT is also an experienced mountaineer, extreme skier, boater, hunter, and adventurer who has made it his life mission to encourage people to untether from natural or self-imposed limitations and live full, passionate lives.  Born with life-threatening VATER/VACTERL syndrome, as well as extreme dyslexia and short-term memory loss, he established the JT Mestdagh Foundation to bring encouragement, joy, and laughter to people with physical and learning disabilities and their families. JT hopes that through sharing his life experiences and other people's stories, people will be reminded there truly are no bad days and to never give up. J.T. Jester shares the inspiration for his book title, No Bad Days. During one of his hospitalizations when he was 7 or 8 years old, J.T.'s father offered sympathy for his suffering. J.T. told his dad, "There are no bad days, only hard ones. And we get through them." This statement became the motto by which J.T. and his family lived.  Jester describes himself as "blessed," since he did not have all of the possible complications of vacterl syndrome. He was born with a non-functioning GI system which required sixteen surgeries throughout childhood, including a hospital stay of over 200 days. In middle and high school he had a tethered spinal cord that required surgery so he could walk and regain other functioning. He recounts his faith journey and relates his perseverance and healing to his relationship with Christ.  J.T. shares the experience of going to a youth camp, though needing medical assistance, and notes how he gave his life to Jesus at the camp. We discuss the ripple effect of J.T.'s positive attitude on those whose lives he touched. Jester emphasizes the importance of choosing a "tribe" of supportive people to help you fulfill your goals and live your best. J.T. explains that we all have hard days into which we fall. He relates how his ski coach taught him to fall, which helped him realize he learned prevention and response from this training. J.T. says learning to fall and get back up is crucial to living well. He also emphasizes the need to find trustworthy people who will be there to help us when we need it the most. We discuss the importance of recognizing we will fall but refusing to let fear prevent us from living our fullest. J.T. credits his parents with allowing him to do everything he wanted to experience, even though it might seem challenging due to his medical risks. Jester recounts the troubleshooting and preparation required to fulfill his goal of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. He shares the incredible story of his experience training for the climb as well as summiting in a shorter time than average. He notes how on the last day of the trip he suffered from altitude sickness and faced unexpected glacier obstacles.  J.T. said the challenges on the last day forced him to relinquish his backpack. He didn't want to let go of his backpack, but the process of needing to do this taught him how reaching goals sometimes requires us to let something go. We need to rely upon our tribe to help us. Jester reached the summit and described the spiritual and emotional experience. We discuss the importance of setting big goals in order to maintain hope and joy in life. J.T. notes the benefits of writing down goals daily, monthly, and yearly. He also reiterates how your tribe will help you write the story you want for your life. He recommends choosing stronger, smarter, more proficient support team members to help you grow. We explore how to select tribe members who will prove beneficial. Jester details how different people helped strengthen him in areas of physical training, skill development, and discipleship.  We emphasize how we can choose a problem-solving perspective instead of letting circumstances shape the limits of our lives. Jester relates one of the stories in his book, No Bad Days. A woman wrote an allegory called "A Trip to Holland" to describe her unexpected, yet beautiful experience as a mother of a child with Down's Syndrome.  J.T. notes how we all face different challenges, but can choose to grow and find joy in our journeys.

How To Live A disciplined Life.

The Working With... Podcast

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post on how living a disciplined life brings an abundance of benefits. This week's question was inspired by just that blog post.    You can subscribe to this podcast on: Podbean | Apple Podcasts | Stitcher | Spotify | TUNEIN Links: Email Me | Twitter | Facebook | Website | Linkedin Email Mastery Course The Time Blocking Course The Working With… Weekly Newsletter The Time And Life Mastery Course The FREE Beginners Guide To Building Your Own COD System Carl Pullein Learning Centre Carl's YouTube Channel Carl Pullein Coaching Programmes The Working With… Podcast Previous episodes page Episode 239 | Script Hello and welcome to episode 239 of the Working With Podcast. A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein, and I am your host for this show. So, what is living a disciplined life? Well, it's not living a regimented life—that's a kind of life that is very restrictive and doesn't allow any flexibility. A disciplined life is a life lived with a few core tenets that provide the building blocks for a healthy, productive day. As Jim Rohn said, “Success is a few simple disciplines practised every day.” This is very much in contrast to living an undisciplined life where anything goes and can, over time, lead to the destruction of careers, marriages, health and dreams.  The great thing about living a disciplined life is you feel great about yourself. It builds self-confidence and self-respect and is the foundation to living a successful life because those little things you do every day move you closer to living the life you dream of living.  So, with that said, let me hand you over to the Mystery Podcast Voice for this week's question. This week's question comes from Cindy. Cindy asks, Hi Carl, a few weeks ago, I read your article on living a disciplined life, and it got me wondering about what would you consider being the right sort of things to bring to a disciplined life. A few pointers in the right direction would really help me.  Hi Cindy, thank you for your question and for reading my article.  The great thing about building a disciplined life is that we have a blank canvas on which to draw up what we want to focus on. In many ways, this will start from knowing what your long-term, life goals are and what your areas of focus. If you have taken the time to establish what you want from life and what is important to you in terms of your career, relationships, finances, health and lifestyle expectations, creating a disciplined life around these will give you a fantastic platform on which to build. For example, if your long-term goal is to build a beach house so you have a place to go for long holidays, then you will need to be disciplined about your finances. To build (or buy) a beach house, requires money. Leaving this to chance is not going to work. Sure, you may buy lottery tickets every week, but the chances of you winning a sufficient amount to purchase a beachside property are very slim. You will need to be deliberate with your savings. How much you spend today, will have an impact on your future goal.  You will have to become a saver instead of a spender.  Now imagine you have a long-term goal to travel the world when you retire. Aside from the money, you will need, you will also need your health. If you let your health go now, when you retire, you will find many of the places you want to visit will be inaccessible to you. For instance, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to see the sun rise over the African savanna or visiting the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia, both of which require a reasonable level of health and fitness to access.  I don't know any people whose long-term goal is to spend their final years in and out of hospital waiting for the next heart attack or stroke.  Statistics from the American Heart Association state that almost half of American adults have some form of cardiovascular disease. This figure is probably similar for most other western countries. People need to take notice of these statistics.  Cardiovascular disease is the biggest killer in the developed world today. But it's not that you are shortening your life expectancy that's the real problem here. The biggest problem is most people have dreams and goals that they are waiting for—living an active retirement, being able to walk their daughter down the aisle or being able to play games with their grandchildren. If you are not disciplined about what you eat and how you exercise, none of those dreams will happen.  Living a disciplined life is about getting the basics right and being consistent with them. Having a healthy eating habit that ensures you get the right nutrition and doing some form of exercise every day. A thirty-minute walk each day would be enough. If you can do more, then the better.  I think the biggest problem with the word exercise today is we associate it with running or going to the gym. That's just a modern concept. Not everyone likes going to the gym or going out for a run. Exercise simply means movement. Walking, taking the stairs, doing housework (a great form of exercise), doing a little gardening each week or taking your kids out on a bike ride every weekend. All these activities are exercise.  So what are the basics? In theory, these will differ from individual to individual, but your health is certainly one area you should be disciplined about. Finances would be another. Working for thirty to forty years and having nothing saved for your retirement would be a disaster. I'm no financial expert, but you should be saving at least 10% of your salary each month for your long-term future.  I like the way Jim Rohn puts this—see that 10% as a tax for your future. If the government decided to raise income tax by 10%, you'd grumble—perhaps get angry—but you would pay it. Stop finding excuses, and start putting a minimum of 10% of your income away each month.  Another essential would be planning the day. Let me give you an example.  Each day I have a few core activities that must be included in my day. These are writing my journal (for my mental health), exercise (for my physical health) Taking our little dog out for a walk with my wife (for quality time with my wife and little Louis) and creating something to help people improve their lives (linked to my purpose in life).  This means when I sit down at the end of the day to plan the next day, these activities are built into my day. There can be exceptions—for instance if my wife is away or we are on holiday—but on the whole, these activities are scheduled on my calendar and are non-negotiable.  This is an example of living a disciplined life. These core activities form the non-negotiable part of my day. When I woke up this morning, I wrote my journal. Writing this podcast, is how I can help people and once this script is finished, I will be heading out for a run at the local park. After dinner, my wife and I will take Louis out for his daily walk.  In total, these activities will take up around three hours of my day. That leaves me plenty of time to deal with my email and other work related matters. I have enough time to eat and sleep and perhaps have a little time at the end of the day to relax and learn something. I don't feel stressed or overwhelmed. I feel comfortable, relaxed and I know at the end of the day I will feel great because the important thing in my life have been given time and attention.  If you flip that and look at an undisciplined life. The day starts with no plan. There's no consistency and no reason to wake up except to get to work. This means wake up time is often decided on how much time it takes to boil the kettle and brush your teeth before heading out the door to go to work where you spend all day being told what to do, where to stand or sit. Lunch is whatever everyone else is having, be that pizza, fried chicken or a highly processed pre-packaged sandwich which leaves you feeling tired and mentally drained all afternoon.  When you get home at the end of your work shift, you feel so fatigued and worn out, all you can do is crash on the sofa and binge-watch whatever you can find that may be interesting on TV or mindlessly scroll through your social media feeds being triggered by whatever opposing political view you happen to read—which then puts you in a foul mood for when you finally fall asleep.  You repeat that every weekday. I know which kind of life I want to live.  Living a disciplined life is about making decisions that are in your best long-term interests. Discipline is like a muscle, the more you exercise it the stronger it becomes.  It's that discipline that makes each day feel constructive and meaningful. It prevents you from feeling you are wasting your life and it leads to better relationships because you are dependable, solid and inspiring to other people.  One of the interesting things about following a disciplined life is that after a few months, living that life becomes easy. It becomes something you just do. I write my journal every morning. It feels effortless, to make a cup of coffee, sit down with my iPad and write for ten minutes. I write about how I feel, what's going well and what's not going well. I write about my dreams, how I would like to live my life and where I feel I can improve. It's just who I am. I write a journal.  To begin living a more disciplined life needs to start small. It could be something as simple as doing the washing up before you go to bed, or it could be you make your bed before leaving to start work. Once that becomes something you “just” do, you can then expand that something else. For instance, going out for a thirty minute walk after dinner—a fantastic way to help control your blood sugars by the way—or perhaps sitting down after your walk and spending ten minutes planning what your objectives for the next day will be.  I should say, planning my objectives for the next day is one of my favourite times of the day. It gives me a sense of control over my life. Instead of waiting for things to happen to me, I feel I am making things happen for me. It gives me a focus for the day and when I complete those objectives I get a wonderful sense of achievement.  The key to living a more disciplined life is deciding what you want out of life and finding a few little things you can do each day that will move you a little closer towards achieving those things.  I've seen so many people destroy their lives because they lived an undisciplined life. People who can no longer say yes to doing new exciting things because of health issues, or relationships breaking down because of a lack of attention and unreliability.  Don't be one of those people. You can take control of your life and build amazing things with a little discipline. It's how we humans thrive, flourish and grow.  It can be hard to become disciplined; I understand that. This is why you want to be thinking long-term. Start small. Develop your self-discipline strength and think of it as building a life you want to live small step by small step. I can promise you once you get started, and you begin to see results you will continue to grow. Thank you, Cindy for you question and thank you to you too for listening.  It just remains for me now to wish you all a very very productive week.

Kenya or imagine a 7-day trek through the Great Rift Valley between ancient craters, active volcanoes and vast open areas dotted with remote Maasai communities. We believe hikes are the best way of ‘taking in' a country. You get to spend more time soaking up the scenery and learning about the ecosystem when you're not rushing from place to place. It's also an incredible way of meeting local people – the best way to appreciate any region.

Gentlemen, I'm thrilled to share this epic conversation with Greg Denning, whose life truly deserves its own movie. Imagine traveling around the world with not one, not two, but seven kids. After my summer road trip last year, I tip my hat to this guy! They've done everything from taking martial arts classes in Morocco, to road-tripping for 7 months through South America, and now they're getting ready to gear up with their teens to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Greg and his wife also plan a yearly trip without the kids to nurture their marriage, and they're about to head out to the south of Portugal to enjoy the beaches and adventure out on the cliffs. For those that don't know, Greg Denning is a high-performance coach and mentor that gives others the tools and inspiration to transform their lives. He hosts the Extraordinary Family Life podcast with his wife Rachel and hosts a second podcast called Be The Man. In our conversation, Greg shares the secrets of traveling long-term with his family, how he finds the energy to do it all, and how to overcome some of the most common limiting beliefs. He also talks about his Triple Trifecta of fitness, family, and finances which ties into what we're all about here at Front Row Dads. There's a lot to get through, so grab a pen and come along for the ride because this episode is AWESOME! Greg Denning Podcast Highlights How to travel long-term with kids and Greg's advice on working remotely, homeschooling, planning trips and finances. The importance of finding time for your significant other while parenting by planning weekly and monthly dates. Time optimization: how to do more and better with the time you have. Learning to live in and enjoy the moment as a parent, even when it's hard. How to overcome your own limiting beliefs. What Greg calls The Triple Trifecta: Fitness (mind/body/spirit), Family (marriage/parenting/family legacy), and Finances (income/expenditures/investments) Get the Full Show Notes Want access to the full show notes, including links to all resources mentioned during today's conversation?
