Episode 24: Ash Wednesday?

(RE: religious rituals)

 

 

Ever felt shame for not knowing or doing the religious routine?

Has anyone ever tried to make you feel like you’re less of a “good” person or not as holy or religious as they are?

Do you know what Ash Wednesday/Lent is really about or how it started?

Today, I offer clarity, confidence & freedom to those like me, who’ve never really “got it” the way those “holy and religious” people did, or at least that’s what I thought.

I hope you’re entertained, enlightened and most importantly, encouraged by today’s offensive-to-religious-rituals show.

Enjoy and instigate your freedom.

Episode 20: Valentine’s Day

 

 

Today, I’m going to share some real (and current) dirt from my own marriage to help you or someone you know, realize that you’re not alone in the reality that relationships are not all rosy. Roses, candy, cards, and gifts … all the stuff hallmark holidays are made of, but not from Instigation Nation. 

I share stories of current issues in my marriage, what we’re doing about it, and share some tools you can use immediately. This is a vulnerable episode for me, as I share one specific thing most people would never share with you.

I hope you are encouraged and equipped from my transparency and that you enjoy this show today, as I instigate the role of your very own personal Cupid.

Episode 19: How Your Satisfaction is Keeping You Stuck

Episode 19: How Your Satisfaction is Keeping You Stuck

Episode 19: How Your Satisfaction is Keeping You Stuck

 

 

“Enough” is a sin. Everyone has an opinion. That’s one of my many.

Everyone has an opinion about success, for example: when “enough is enough” and being satisfied.

Listen, your potential has NO concept of “enough”. You’re made in the image of God and God is limitless.

Today, I’m going to give you the truth and why you should be focused on “never enough”, “never satisfied” and pursuing real success, not the shit that sits in your driveway, unless it’s really nice and has sweet rims 😉
