Audio Transcription

Zumba fitness is always dominate. Cuz I got five. Kids I will not lose. It is the truth. Thought I’d make that excuse, I’ll be up going to go to school, but the truth is my mentor. Like my yoda. Yes, yes and yes, my name is click clock in before ussba entrepreneur of the year sit here on a mission to get you a great financial position, and recently I was asked to speak at a wonderful church in amarillo texas. That church is pastor by pastor, brian and jesse gibson. That church is called victory church. The business coach church has been around for a long long time and I was honored to go out there and speak to the 1200 some-odd people that were there, people I’m, saying 12fish people approximately 1200 people, I didn’t speak to 1200, somewhat odd people, they’re great people out there in amarillo really good people. But during the talk we returned a lot of the audio into bob up a podcast and radio show, but some of it we just couldn’t quite fit onto the show. You know, cuz the show format we really try to keep. The show goes to about 90 minutes or so, and so this is the remaining audio from the second sermon. When I’m talking about the importance of owning your day, the importance of actually thoughtfully and purposely designing each and every day, which is every single day. You and i, have to take the time out to plan our days when we do that, we get up an hour before the rest of the world and we scheduled time for our faith. Our family, our finances, are fitness our friendship in our fun.

We ask ourselves what do I want to achieve today in the areas of my faithmy family, my finances, my fitness, my friendship in my fun. We won’t drift and a no yes. Yes, we will actually make progress in each area it when you make progress everyday, what you get as a reward. You can you get this as a reward for making a small commitment to yourself and doing you get confidence, and if you get enough confidence pretty soon to become a powerful high integrity, energetic person you become pro-active solution, minded person. But if you get rid of the planning time for most people for everybody, for me, we become a reactive. Mr. Intentions misses intention, but never achieves them, and then we get depressed and then we went to settle. We begin to attack others who are who are achieving and we begin to blame, and then we end up living in a van down by the river or holding a cardboard sign, underneath an overpass somewhere and saywill work for food. But then, when somebody asks us, if we would actually like a job will turn that job down, because we would rather stand and hold a sign for food or so signs were more accurate. I wish, you would say, will stand and hold a sign for food, but if you’re willing to work for food, this show is for you were talking about how to own your day own your day in june of 2016. Another study reported the typical smartphone owner interacts with his or her phone and average of 85 interruptions a day. This includes immediately upon waking up just before going to sleep and often times in the middle of the night. So here’s my tip for you, I’ve interviewed millionaires, billionaires been friends of them. I’ve grown successful companies as a business coach and I have yet to meet a single person. Not one.

Not one I’ve tried that one person who was enormously successful that does not spend at least an hour a day planning their day before the neck. Show me a salmon idaho cool night. That’s only bird sounds. Isn’t it if you don’t own a business when you get to work, do you not immediately run into chaos to lee cockrell here leacock lee managed walt disney world resorts 40,000 employees? Could you imagine how many people live in amarillo 789, 550,000, 52, bueller, bueller, anybody 200,000 turn 7000 and a lot to do. You realize it? A million people a week come to disney world. That’s like five amarillo’s every week showing up you know what they have heart attacks at disney world. They don’t just have them here. They have strokes, they have divorces at the park, the happiest place on earth by everybody, disney mickey mouse. He actually smokes hi everybody I got to take a smoke, break I’m serious. This is reality. It’s not like. It’s not like they’re, not deal with real people there to lee said he had to spend an hour a day, scheduling his dad doesn’t make sense. But for the day cuz, when you get to work, the chaos happens right. Don’t we all want to work out in the chaos happens? Don’t we all want to call her? Parents would be appreciative. The only good friends family, faith, family finances fitness before we have to schedule so lisa. What gets scheduled gets done and I am very, very, very, very certain mama least 80% certain time, 74.7% certain that nobody’s going to come rendezvous rendezvous. An interview me interrupt me in my business coach shower when I listen to td jakes scuse me mr. Paste email I have a question. No that doesn’t have one of in the shower. That’s why I listen to td jakes! Are you getting this? Are we getting this? But if we don’t schedule time it won’t happen, we could learn all these spiritual concepts and we can really know cuz the pastor brian, what pastor jesse pastor david what he does have great teaching, but people who judge us based on what we do not based on what we intend to do. We have the best teaching in the world at this church. I do but go to the church for over 5 years or 5 years.

So you guys have great teaching, but the world judges us, based on what we do god gives us unconditional love and forgiveness in the workplace. No one wants to hear our testimony or be invited to church from the guy who eats all the pretzels. This whole sermon spent about pretzels I make pretzels. Why do you hate pretzels? So much and I do it’s an addiction problem? Okay, so hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. That’s in the bible, the bible, the bible, that book that we have it’s in there too. Again. Let me redo the kind of warm up a deep kind of a deity voice. Oh hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. That’s what god said when I get to work, work work, work, work, work, that’s going to do! Cuz, we don’t forget it:okay, that’s your new thing, you’re doing sure, but he will judge us based on the scoreboard. All rights are rise & grind, but not too early in here or women here who, by default you just love to work that your natural thing at your natural deal. If I just love to work, hey buddy was like one person of the same. Probably could you and I could share that we go to the week or the same therapy today after work. We just want to work all the time eight days a week. If we could we, like it, I like it. It’s like to me. It’s fine, but you got that right. So it says your lazy ass make for poverty, but diligent hands bring. Well, that’s proverbs 10:4, that’s great, but it also says exodus 20:11, for in 6 days the lord made the heavens and the earth and a sea and all that is in there, but he arrested on the that’s. Why are men’s grooming lounge elephant? The business coach room is closed. Elephant in the room are men’s grooming lounge is closed on sunday. Are you turning down all the prophets?

Bbt baby play purple people upstairs write verbal gymnastics in the morning right, so we have to make sure that we observe the sabbath. We also work 6 days 6 days to god, created the earth and how many days read the bible to sleep in 6 days, bible verses. You have some fun with that. God did not say in 1938, god did not say we now must have a 40 hour work week, that’s fdr talkin, to wrestle with the morality of that. But if you want to be enormously successful, you got to put that work in god gave out of the garden and told him to work. That thing abby said that thing that might be a newer translation. I, don’t work that trick going to work. It right that’s more like a missy elliott reference, I’m, sorry about that. Okay, so, okay, we got to keep focused on sustainable diligence. What does it mean to be sustainable? Three can keep it up. I, don’t know about you, but I like to just grind like I like to just grind, and in my wife’s like you, but you’ve been home in, like you know, like two weeks, has it been that long is 15 days to knowing or some of us and then you don’t talk to people in your just business coach people are saying absolutely spiritual. You burn all your cds, you unplug the cable you’re running around wearing a robe. Your light is so good. Looking all crazy and have you been outside and have a lot of red ball red ball, you should take a nap daryl. I know right. She got to have sustainability. Are you getting there is somebody is helping somebody, okay, you got to schedule it. So it says here in genesis, 2:15 the lord. The man and put him in the garden of eden to work it and take care of it from get rich. Quick schemes quickly disappear. Here’s well from hard work, grows:overtime, different translation, dishonest money.

Does honest money, dishonest one-time, repeat that, again, just honest money dwindles awake? Could you repeat that please just honest money, dwindle disguise on a psychological test? If you keep saying the same, dishonest money do windows away, but whoever gathers money little by little mix it grow. So, if you’re out there trying to get rich, quick, cuz you’re not trying to schedule every day that daily diligence so I can work in about your farm, you ever seen a farm be driven by a farm. You till the soil. You sow the seeds, your water, you get a harvest, that’s how it is at work. We just got to the next 90 days. What speed are boss to work and get up everyday and schedule time for your faith, your family, your business coach finances, your fitness, your friendship and your only things that you don’t schedule are the only things that won’t get done. I, don’t think. I did and I’ll leave you guys alone, the average american, not the people who churches no, not those church. And now it’s people who don’t go to church. Just heathens the average, even the average satanic worshiper watches tv the guy with the goat head running around out there, the part that guy the average american watches 5.2 hours of tv a day, write that down think about it. Look it up. Nielsen 5.2 hours of tv per day. The average american has 90 interruptions on their smartphone, which means the average american has no time for their family because they’re on facebook bears versus no time to be successful, cuz they’re watching tv, we can’t be watching csi miami. We don’t want to watch other people’s tv shows. Let’s have a life that people want to make tv shows about because then, when they watch your chip and joanna show they’re going to say, can I pick your brain, and then you say yes and they say why are you so successful? You say because christ is my focus:i go to victory / river city, whatever we’re going to call the church I go to that church and you should come with me they’re going to go even though I think I don’t agree with your religion.

I’ll go with you cuz, whatever you’re doing I want that, but if we believe in christ and we denying with her lifestyle, nobody wants to come to church who makes sense. So we got to just I just got to schedule time for what matters now. Billy graham says that she says the highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish christian service. A synonym for service is work. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish christian service, final notable quotable, rick warren says work becomes worship when you dedicate it to god and perform it with an awareness of his presence once again, victory church, pastor, brian, pastor jesse, thanks for letting me have an opportunity to to speak about the one thing I know about to your business coach church, and that is work ethic and if you’re out there are, you have a work ethic you’re, a grinder you’re somebody who wants to escape from the norm.
