Enthusiasm – God In You

I use speaking and coaching to bring the power of ENTHUSIASM to those who are ready to inspire their fire. This is what I am all about. If you are ready to catch the fire and fan the flames, then you are who I want to work with.

My mission is to break the monotony of the mundane and the mediocre by bringing as much ENTHUSIASM to as many businesses, ministries, marriages, and individual lives as I possibly can. I have an ENTHUSIASM for life that I just want to spread to other people. Life is too short to live it in a mundane way.

Those of you who are a part of what I am doing, I typically refer to you as “fellow enthusiasts” because there is something inside of you that drives you as well. This is my drive, my passion, my calling. Will you join the ENTHUSIASM movement with me?

The word ENTHUSIASM comes from two Greek words.

En: meaning “in”  and  THUS: which is a form of the Greek word “THEO” which is the Greek word for “GOD”.
It is where we get our English word “Theology” which means “a study of God”. The word literally means “God within” or “God in you”.

As followers of Jesus we are, or at least should be, walking bundles of ENTHUSIASM! We have the very Spirit of God living inside of us. According to Acts 2:38, God’s gift of the Holy Spirit lives in us.

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  -Acts 2:38 (NIV)

This is why I do what I do. It is the leading of the Holy Spirit, the very presence of God within me, the ENTHUSIASM that drives me to do all this stuff. I am doing all I can to bring the power of ENTHUSIASM to those who are ready to inspire their fire!

Are you ready? Are you ready to take this journey with me? Are you ready to inspire your fire? Are you ready to become a part of the fellow enthusiasts’ community?

Are You Wasting Your Life?

How many times have you heard someone make the comment, “I am the same person I have always been”? I am not sure exactly what they mean by that, but I cannot help but see that as an insult to themselves. To say, “I am the same person I have always been” is to say “I have never grown up” or “I am not any smarter now than I ever was” or “I just don’t give a crap about getting any better in any area of my life”.

I know many people reach a plateau and never really grow beyond a certain point. That seems sad to me, not something to brag about.

If you are the same person at 40 as you were at 20 you have wasted 20 years of your life. As we grow older we should be growing in other areas as well. Unless we are perfect, (and none of us are) we should always be growing.

ludicrousThe reason most people do not grow is that growth means change and sometimes change can be painful. There is no growth without change. We have to consistently be changing if we want to grow. That means we will not be the same person we have always been. When we grow, we become different. We change and become better.

If you want something you have never had, you will have to do something you have never done. That is the process of growth. If we just settle, then we will never reach our God-given potential. God is not done with you. So, do not settle. Keep growing. Keep learning. Keep stretching. Do whatever it takes to get from where you are to where you want to be.

I can remember being so shy, I would not look the cashier in the eye as I made a purchase. I hoped they would not talk to me so I would not have to speak. Thankfully, today I am not the same person I had always been.

ludicrous

I  can remember a day when I hated school or any kind of academics. I had no desire to stretch myself in this area. Thankfully, today I am not the same person I had always been.

Before I got married, I would preach and teach often on marriage and relationships. After I got married I stopped! I realized I was clueless about marriage and relationships. I was married for almost 15 years before I felt mentally, emotionally, and spiritually prepared to teach on marriage and relationships again. It has been a brutal learning process for me; but I have learned from experience, books, audio programs, classes, and especially from other married couples who were much better at this marriage thing than I was. As I have learned, I have become a much better husband, dad, and teacher. Thankfully, today I am not the same person I had always been.

You can change! You can grow! But not if you are satisfied being the same person you have always been.

God is not done with you…so, never settle, live with enthusiasm, and turn the world upside down… Here we go!

How to Make the Most of Every Opportunity

Time management is a myth. Life is not about time, it is about priorities. Ephesians 5:15-16 says, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity.” How we do this may be different for each one of us of depending on our personality style.

Each personality style has a different time focus and they prioritize their time and activities differently. Some work well with planners and others do not. Each style is motivated differently and they have different causes for procrastination.

How does each personality style best prioritize and make the most of every opportunity?

heart_PNG691The security seeking style-The Hearts-time focus is on the past. Planning is natural and important to hearts. They prefer a step-by-step plan with clear goals, objectives, schedules and milestones. Using planners is natural for them because they like to work systematically through lists. Hearts are motivated by schedules and timelines. Hearts are most likely to procrastinate when they feel they do not have control of themselves and their time. The best way for Hearts to get back on track is to stop over-organizing and get started.

bodyThe thrill-seeking style-The Bodies-time focus is on the now. They are the free spirits who are just living for the moment. They do not systematically work through lists very well. They are motivated by fun and excitement. They tend to procrastinate when they are involved in a long-term project or when something becomes boring to them. The best way for the Bodies to get back on track is to find some way to make things fun again.

soulThe identity seeking style-The Souls– time focus is on the future. Souls tend to look at the big picture rather than the details. Some Souls are not very good at working with planners and those who do use them more as life planners rather than day planners. Souls are motivated by personal meaning and developing people. Souls tend to procrastinate if they are unable to connect meaning or value to their tasks. The way Souls can typically get back on track is to take a mental break or sometimes they simply need to work in seclusion.

mindThe knowledge seeking style-The Minds-time focus is in intervals. This means they are less interested in what time it is and they are more interested in their present project. They tend to measure time by their projects instead of the clock. Minds are the ones who are most likely to lose track of time. Minds tend to get lost in their work or project and ignore the clock altogether. They are motivated by an intellectual challenge or having the opportunity to improve something or solve a problem. Minds tend to procrastinate when they over-analyze the task instead of completing it. Often times the best way for a Mind to get back on track is to take some time alone.

Evaluate how you best work according to your own style. Do not try to make the most of every opportunity by trying to be like someone else. Be who God made you to be and make the most of every opportunity in the style that fits you best.

How will you make the most of your opportunities today?
