Jason T. Wiser21,531*Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan* There’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake?  This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/ It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear? That’s why I have invited @118320665823821681206  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business. *Chris is the Author of* "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link) Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are: ⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing? ⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today? ⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story? If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Did you click "Yes" on the event invite? Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and *look for the big RED button.* Upcoming Guests: ⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients" ⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners" Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT  Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT  Join us on Twitter using the hashtag   #OnTrackTips   ========================================­============== If you like this series, Please Share this with 2 friends.

What if our culture made fun of moms in the same way it makes fun of our dads?

The backlash would be overwhelming.

Creed

This looks pretty cool.

This movie is about the journey of Adonis Creed, the son of the late Apollo Creed. Along the way, his path collides with Rocky Balboa who becomes his mentor.

Could this be the first great Rocky movie since… Rocky?

Are You Living Life, Fully Alive?

For those of us who live in the United States we are celebrating July 4th. Wikipedia describes this event as follows. Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

Spending time with family and friends. Having a cookout. Going to see a fireworks display.

Have you paused and thought about the significance of this day? Do you even remember the courage, resolve and the sacrifice that hangs in the shadows of this day? What is it that drives this level of resolve, courage and sacrifice?

Why We Need More Sheepdogs And Less Hashtags!

My son and I went to see American Sniper with a group of band of brothers and wow what an incredible move! Not only will this movie stick with you for a while afterwards, it’s an important film portraying a true war hero that people should see. I am not on the panel for Oscar nominations or a well known movie reviewer, but American Sniper is absolutely deserving of any and all award recognition. Also, it’s a film that isn’t merely a war movie – it’s a story of courage, conviction, brotherhood and caring.

I won’t give away any spoilers but it was the first time I’ve ever experienced a silence so overpowering you could hear a pin drop at the conclusion of the film. The movie was powerful and the ending created an emotional pause as the credits flew by without the typical music — the audience was stunned to silence.Iv’e always had... more »

Iv’e always had the utmost honor, gratitude and respect for those who serve our country but with this movie I could feel it in my heart and I could I feel it in my chest!

So, what does this have to do with sheepdogs and hashtags?

We Need More Silence in Our Lives

Face it. We are afraid of what will happen if we turn off all the noise.

In modern culture, it almost seems like silence is extinct. We have given noise our consent to fill every moment of life. Alarms begin the day, and soft ballads sounding from our speakers call it to a close. Even in those “silent prayers” at church, an acoustic instrument strums in the background to keep us safe from the perfect still.

Love Them

It breaks my heart that we who call ourselves Christians judge and beat people over the head with His word and even worse…our lives just don’t demonstrate what we say! How about we begin by loving people! Love them, love them more and keep loving them until they pause and ask why?

Then tell them why!

Tell them your story of how an amazing loving, forgiving and graceful God changed your life. God is at work, so be patient for the invitation. The truth of the gospel will always find a way when the time is right!

Neither Cave Nor Panic

There is a great comment in this article: "The Supreme Court can do many things, but it can't put Jesus back in the tomb!" It also cannot re-write my Bible!

It also helps to remember that we were to be counter-culturists anyway; the Apostle Paul clearly states in Romans 12 that we were to not conform to the ways of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds!

What A Stump Can Teach Us About Pride

So what is pride? If you Google ‘definition of pride’ your browser will tell you that pride is a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one’s own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.

Ok, got it…so what’s the big deal?

Before we walk this out, it’s important to point out that there is a difference between the kind of pride that God hates (Proverbs 8:13) and the kind of pride we feel about a job well done, being proud of our kids, etc. The kind of pride that stems from self-righteousness is sin, and God hates it because it is a big hindrance to seeking Him.

You don’t have to be in a leadership role to struggle with pride, because we all struggle with it. In some context of your life, we are allsetup by what... more »

You don’t have to be in a leadership role to struggle with pride, because we all struggle with it. In some context of your life, we are all setup by what we have, who we know, what we can do and what we can do — and there are so many options on the remote control of life that programs us for pride.

From a young age it was easy for me to take the remote control of my own life; point it at myself and select prosperity, position and power. It didn’t take long to feel the rush of this new found pride that began to take root in my life. With pride as my rudder I quickly moved up the ranks and was promoted to the position of Vice President in my mid-thirties of a global billion dollar company, which was rich and fertile soil for my pride to grow. I had the miracle grow of pride.

I share some of that story in this excerpt from my book Heartstone:

If You Want to Know a Man, Look at How He Treats His Inferiors
By Wendy van Eyck

In recent research by the Barna Group, substantial majorities of Millennials who don’t go to church say they see Christians as judgmental (87%), hypocritical (85%) and insensitive to others (70%).
 
One of the hardest verses in the Bible for me to read is in John 13:35 (VOICE) when Jesus says, “Everyone will know you as my followers if you demonstrate your love to others.” I know from reading the gospels that for Jesus love isn’t pretty words, love is action. I think Jesus would be crushed that his followers are known for being judgmental, hypocritical, and insensitive rather than by their love. 

One of the most remarkable characteristics of Jesus is that he did not mix only with the priests and the well-to-do business people of the day. Instead, Jesus ate dinner in thehomes of ... more »

One of the most remarkable characteristics of Jesus is that he did not mix only with the priests and the well-to-do business people of the day. Instead, Jesus ate dinner in the homes of thieves (more politely called tax collectors in the Bible), he let prostitutes wash his feet with their hair, and he offered hope to those caught in adultery. He invited the poor to follow him and broke bread with betrayers.
 
Jesus didn’t see himself as a better person than those he met. He saw everyone as a person who needed to be loved. Rev. Charles Bayard Miliken (Methodist Episcopal, Chicago) reminds us, 

“It is the way one treats his inferiors more than the way he treats his equals which reveals one’s real character.”

Here are four actions you can take today that will help you learn to treat everyone as equals:

Awesome!!

We had some crazy weather come through New England last night.  Did these storms stop the Red Sox Game?  

Nope.

John Schmottlach, sent this amazing picture from Fenway Park last night via Twitter. The game went on without a problem, despite a tornado watch in Boston and warnings around them.

That is a cumulonimbus (thunderstorm) cloud from a storm way out in southern Worcester county. It is so high, it can be seen beautifully lit by the setting sun.

Passionless and Indifferent
By John Eldredge

I thought of the last story we have from the life of the prophet Elisha. Jehoash was king of Israel at the time, and he went to visit Elisha on his sickbed. He knew that without the help of this great prophet, the future of Israel was looking dim. Enemies were closing in on every side, waiting for the kill. Elisha told the king to take in hand some arrows.

And the king took them. Elisha told him, "Strike the ground." He struck it three times and stopped. The man of God was angry with him and said, "You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated [your enemies] completely . . . But now you will defeat [them] only three times." Elisha died and was buried. (2 Kings 13:18-20)

But now you will defeat [them] only three times." Elisha died and was buried. (2 Kings 13:18-20)

That's it? What a strange story! Why was the old prophet so angry? Because the king was nonchalant; he was passionless, indifferent. He gave the ground a whack or two. His heart wasn't in it. God says, in effect, "If that is how little you care about the future of your people, that is all the help you will get." In other words, if your heart's not in it, well then, neither is mine. You can't lead a country, let alone flourish in a marriage, with an attitude like that. To abandon desire is to say, "I don't really need you; I don't really want you. But I will live with you because, well, I'm supposed to." It is a grotesque corruption of what was meant to be a beautiful dance between desire and devotion.

Accountability

"We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." -Ronald Reagan

Personal accountability is slowly becoming non-existent!

Thoughts?

The Divine Paradox
By Pastor Greg Laurie

"For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." —Luke 14:11

If we have learned nothing else from our culture telling us what we should do to be happy, we have learned this: It is just not true. We have realized where happiness isn't.

Prior to becoming a Christian, I already knew the answer was not in the world. I knew it wasn't in my mother's world of hedonism and drinking and partying. I knew it wasn't in my world, limited as it was at seventeen years old. So I was wondering where it was. And then I became a Christian.

We have a different paradigm to follow, given to us by God in His Word. We could call it the divine paradox, because in God's economy, if we want to be great, we must learn to be humble. If we want self-fulfillment, wes... more »

The Divine Paradox
By Pastor Greg Laurie

"For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." —Luke 14:11

If we have learned nothing else from our culture telling us what we should do to be happy, we have learned this: It is just not true. We have realized where happiness isn't.

Prior to becoming a Christian, I already knew the answer was not in the world. I knew it wasn't in my mother's world of hedonism and drinking and partying. I knew it wasn't in my world, limited as it was at seventeen years old. So I was wondering where it was. And then I became a Christian.

We have a different paradigm to follow, given to us by God in His Word. We could call it the divine paradox, because in God's economy, if we want to be great, we must learn to be humble. If we want self-fulfillment, we should seek the fulfillment of others.

Regarding this divine paradox, Malcolm Muggeridge pointed out, "Where, then, does happiness lie? In forgetfulness, not indulgence, of self. In escape from sensual appetites, not in their satisfaction."

The way to happiness is sadness. By that I mean we are sad over our sinful state, so we turn to God, ask for His forgiveness, and enter into a relationship with Him. Jesus gave us the beautiful beatitude, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted" (Matthew 5:4). Another way to translate this would be, "Oh how happy are the unhappy." There is no greater example of this upside down life than Jesus Christ Himself.

We want to find our happiness and our joy in the right place, or more specifically, in the right person, which is God. As we come to know and walk with Him, we will find something better than happiness, and that is joy. We will find joy in our circumstances, regardless of what they are.

12 Things Every Dad Should Say to His Kids
By Debbie McDaniel a Crosswalk[dot]com Contributing Writer

Words matter. Our kids need to hear them. They thrive under encouraging, supporting, heart-felt words. And young children grow up into adults and yet they still need to hear, loving words from a father’s voice. Wisdom from a daddy’s heart, that lives on long in the lives of others.

Here are 12 things every dad should say to his kids, though there’s many more:

1. I love you. Period. No matter what. Unconditionally. And nothing will ever change that.

2.  I believe in you. You can do it. Anything is possible. You are a winner.  

3. Love God. Love your spouse.

4. I am with you. And even when you can’t see me, you can be assured I’m thinking of you.

My Parakletos
By Dave Hearn | Third Option Man

My body armor was my personal safety net and one-man band; it provided me with just about everything. It was my last line of defense against the enemy and I wouldn’t go anywhere in enemy territory without it. I’d heard stories of guys taking multiple small arms rounds to their plates and getting up with little more than bruises to show for it. I was happy to shoulder the extra weight that came with that kind of security.

But as I was putting on my ungainly body armor that night, I saw a small tag inside that I hadn’t noticed before: It read “Paraclete,” the brand name of the manufacturer. Something seemed familiar about it, so I made a mental note and continued gearing up.

It was months later, in our little plywood chapel on the compound, that I ran across this word again: Parakletos, which was Greek for Comforter, or Helper – what New Testament translators would attribute to the Holy Spirit.

Then it clicked.

Four-year-old girl laughs hysterically on aerobatic flight with father

You'd think taking a four-year-old on a hair-raising aerobatic plane flight might be too scary for a youngster.

Well, think again.

One pilot, who is the president of Quebec’s Aviation RL, decided to take his daughter on one such ride.

Wow, very powerful act of forgiveness. Good always triumphs over evil!

Hey Dads, Get Your Head Out Of Your @$$ And Listen Up!

Planning and providing is part of a man’s leadership role in his home. Sadly many men often misplace their vision and focus on things such as; a house, car, boat, money, rising up the corporate ladder, guy stuff, fill in the blank ____.

Sound familiar?

One of the passions I have is reaching people who have lost themselves to prosperity, power, and position. Whether we know it or not guys, we all ask the basic question “do I have what it takes?” We want to know from our fathers that we have what it takes and when they’re not around or emotionally unavailable, this question often goes unanswered. So, what do we do? We pursue everything else for that validation. We don’t even look for it from God!

Whether we know it or not guys, we all ask the basic question “do I have what it takes?” We want to know from our fathers that we have what it takes and when they’re not around or emotionally unavailable, this question often goes unanswered. So, what do we do? We pursue everything else for that validation. We don’t even look for it from God!

Because this question eluded me and I didn’t lean into God, I ended up pulling a Maverick — I crashed and burned! After a devastating “life shaking”, God got me off my “pity potty” and taught me how to man up — and He is coming for you!

"As Christ comes out of the water, His Father speaks validation. His voice ripped away the religious drapery and the Father said, ‘Jesus, you are the real deal. You have what it takes.’ And this is right at the moment Christ is about to launch into his mission. When we show that image to men, they see that God will speak to them the same way. We are sons of God and He will validate us."—John Eldredge

So for all the dads (or soon to be dads) out there here are 7 tips to get you thinking before it’s too late, so listen up.

It Must Be Small
By John Eldredge

When he left Rivendell, Frodo didn't head out with a thousand Elves. He had eight companions. Jesus didn't march around backed by legions of angels, either. He had twelve men—knuckleheads, every last one of them, but they were a band of brothers. This is the way of the kingdom of God. Though we are part of a great company, we are meant to live in little platoons. 

The little companies we form must be small enough for each of the members to know one another as friends and allies.

Who will fight for your heart?

How can we offer the stream of counseling to one another, unless we actually know one another, know each other's stories? The reason counseling became a hired relationship between two people was largely because we couldn't find it anywhere else; we haven't formed the sort of smallfe... more »

The little companies we form must be small enough for each of the members to know one another as friends and allies.

Who will fight for your heart?

How can we offer the stream of counseling to one another, unless we actually know one another, know each other's stories? The reason counseling became a hired relationship between two people was largely because we couldn't find it anywhere else; we haven't formed the sort of small fellowships that would allow the stream to flow quite naturally. Is it possible to offer rich and penetrating words to someone you barely know, in the lobby of your church, as you dash to pick up the kids?

Where will you find the Four Streams?

The Four Streams are something we learn, and grow into, and offer one another, within a small fellowship. We hear each other's stories. We discover each other's glories. We learn to walk with God together. We pray for each other's healing. We cover each other's back. This small core fellowship is the essential ingredient for the Christian life. Jesus modeled it for us for a reason. Sure, he spoke to the masses. But he lived in a little platoon, a small fellowship of friends and allies. His followers took his example and lived this way, too. "They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts" (2:46). "Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house" (1 Cor 16:19). "Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house" (Col 4:15).

Honor Wounds
By John Eldredge

You will be wounded. Just because this battle is spiritual doesn't mean it's not real; it is, and the wounds a man can take are in some ways more ugly than those that come in a firefight. To lose a leg is nothing compared to losing heart; to be crippled by shrapnel need not destroy your soul, but to be crippled by shame and guilt may. You will be wounded by the Enemy. He knows the wounds of your past, and he will try to wound you again in the same place. But these wounds are different; these are honor-wounds.

Blaine was showing me his scars the other night at the dinner table. "This one is where Samuel threw a rock and hit me in the forehead. And this one is from the Tetons when I fell into that sharp log. I can't remember what this one was from; oh, here's a good one-this one is from when I fell into the pond while... more »

And this one is from the Tetons when I fell into that sharp log. I can't remember what this one was from; oh, here's a good one-this one is from when I fell into the pond while chasing Luke. This one is a really old one when I burned my leg on the stove camping." He's proud of his scars; they are badges of honor to a boy . . . and to a man. We have no equivalent now for a Purple Heart of spiritual warfare, but we will. One of the noblest moments that await us will come at the wedding feast of the Lamb. Our Lord will rise and begin to call those forward who were wounded in battle for his name's sake and they will be honored, their courage rewarded. I think of Henry V's line to his men,

He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian . . .
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars, And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day; then shall our names . . .
Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.
