Happy Monday!! I love Mondays, and mornings, and new years…basically anything that signals a fresh start! 🙂 Been that way as long as I can remember…but that’s a story for another day. For now I have a very important questions for you…Are you drinking a milkshake while doing sit ups? Crazy, I know. But if you are trying to squeeze …
So, over the past year I have become a self-proclaimed podcast junkie! In May of last year I read the book “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson. This book set me on a quest for personal development, and on my journey to a more empowered, confident, well-rounded, accomplished me, I have found so many incredible resources that I never even knew existed!
Now, of course I’ve come across many great books which will serve well for another post in the
future; however, this go-round I want to focus on the power of the podcast! Seems like every few weeks I am discovering another incredible podcast. These people inspire me to be the best version of myself, to keep reaching higher, to fulfill my God-given potential and to put feet on my goals and dreams, all while I go about a life that, let’s face it, affords me very little time to read without my dozing off after 2 pages! Whether it’s understanding why I need to set clear, attainable goals, finding ways to walk my kids through tough times, feeding me practical guidance from the Word for my every day struggles or inspiring me to rev up my love life, these podcasts listed here have had noticeable impact on my life and relationships. So here are some of my tops right now (in no particular order):
When it comes to inspiring and motivating you to reach your fullest God-ordained potential there is no one like the late great Zig Ziglar. This podcast (many of which kick off with a clip of Zig himself) will drive you to not only improve yourself but to seek to empower and encourage those around you as well.
While there will never be another Zig Ziglar, Zig’s son, Tom and show host, Kevin Miller are ensuring that the Ziglar legacy lives on. If, by chance, you are not familiar with Zig Ziglar, STOP! Do not read another word further until you have taken some time to get to know who he was and what his name still stands for today!
Ok, friend, I hope you’ll check out some of these, or discover some great ones of your own. (If you do, feel free to share them in the comment section below!)
You may think you don’t have time for listening to a podcast. That’s what I used to think. But now that I can listen to everything on my phone, my podcasts are constantly playing as I’m get ready in the morning, making dinner in the evenings, or riding the bike home from dropping the kids off at school. Folding laundry? Perfect time for a podcast! 🙂 Cleaning the house was never so inspiring!
James 1:25 says that we are blessed when we look into the perfect law that gives freedom and then don’t forget what it says. To me, that says memorizing scripture is a major key to a powerful walk with the Lord. I promise it’s not as hard as you think, and in this short video I share some tips and tricks …
Enjoy! This one includes a surprise appearance from the kiddos! 🙂 https://youtu.be/aw7–9K3jKI
