Jason T. Wiser21,886*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.

There’s Only One Way To Face Life, And Here It Is…

I love the scene from J. R. R Tolkien’s “The Return of the King” where Aragon is desperately outnumbered. He looks fear right in the eye and finds the strength to inspire his men against what seems like an almost certain defeat against the massive forces of the enemy. Standing firm and riding in front of his army, he declares,

I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me.
A day may come when the courage of men fails,
when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship,
…but it is not this day! This day we fight!
By all that you hold dear on this good earth,
I bid you stand…

Sounds so easy in the movies, doesn’t it?

Hey Men!

Our kids are growing up in a society that relentlessly attacks the traditional roles of men. As a dad, you have the power to cut through the confusion and prepare them for the battle of manhood.

Quotes To Kick Your Masculinity Into Gear

In today’s postmodern culture the meaning and image of true masculinity is seriously getting diluted, tainted, watered-down and completely lost. Unfortunately the narrative that’s being played out today is ‘boys in men’s bodies’ with only a few wanting to be men…but not exactly knowing how, while others remain nonchalant.

Wanted to share a collection of quotes that are some of my personal favorites to help you to kick your masculinity into gear!

Are You Fighting the New Greed?
By Christine Hoover

Kyle and I sat down at the restaurant, away from the children, yet I still couldn't relax and enjoy myself. I had been consistently distracted for weeks. Slumped at the table, I stared at him and tried to explain how I was feeling.

“I feel overrun with thoughts and emotions, many of them sad and discontented. My brain feels like it's being pulled in a million different directions. What is going on with me?”

After listening to my winding trail of thoughts for many minutes, Kyle replied, “You check e-mail a lot. You're on your phone a lot.”

My purse sat on the booth seat beside me, and inside my phone's blinking green light beckoned even as he said those words. He's right, I thought, immediately recalling a conversation with a group of women about our children and technology.What wa... more »

4 Characteristics Of Authentic Manhood

We are in our third week of week of the Stepping Up series with our church men’s group. Today we journeyed through defining what is authentic manhood?

Defining authentic manhood is tough, because we don’t see it much in our modern progressive culture. In today’s world view the very idea of manhood has been emasculated and masculinity is under attack. The dominant narrative throws out labels such as clueless, knucklehead, bumbling idiot, fill in the blank ____.

Voddie Baucham, pastor at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring Texas shares that if you could package up todays definition of “manhood” it would the three B’s: billfold, ball-field and bedroom. Being a man in today’s standards is about how much you make, what do you do (focus on athletes) and how are with the ladies. Wow, does today s culture have itwrong!

Heartstone Journey starts the conversation around authentic manhood with Jesus Christ as the model. Why? Because He is the model!

Unfortunately, most of us men don’t follow this model. We follow the Adam model and here’s why.

The only way to live in this adventure-with all its danger and unpredictability and immensely high stakes-is in an ongoing, intimate relationship with God. The control we so desperately crave is an illusion. Far better to give it up in exchange for God's offer of companionship, set aside stale formulas so that we might enter into an informal friendship.

"Men cannot be men—much less good or heroic men—unless their actions have meaningful consequences to people they truly care about. Strength requires an opposing force, courage requires risk, mastery requires hard work, honor requires accountability to other men. Without these things, we are little more than boys playing at being men, and there is no weekend retreat or mantra or half-assed rite of passage that can change that. A rite of passage must reflect a real change in status and responsibility for it to be anything more than theater. No reimagined manhood of convenience can hold its head high so long as the earth remains the tomb of our ancestors." –Jack Donovan

Why The Resurrection Offers Hope For A Brighter Tomorrow

Having a right set of doctrines is not enough. This truth was put to the test in the trials and storms of my journey, and it drove me beyond my superficial acceptance of the truth into a deeper understanding of God’s very nature.

Did you know that the core of Christianity is not a set of philosophies, a religion, a world view, or even the teachings of Jesus? It’s the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus is alive and He cleared the way for us to have an intimate relationship with the living God. We spend a lifetime in hopeless pursuit of everything else expect God, ignoring that the very heart-cry of our soul is for a relationship with Him.

"We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God." —A. W. Tozer

How Ice Fishing Exposed The Need For More Margin In My Life

I am a father, a grandfather, I lead a technology team, I am the founder of Heartstone Journey, I am working on various projects and I am a leader in the men’s ministry at our church…just to name a few things I do. I seemingly have been managing my work-life balance a bit better and not feeling overly stressed these days, but God started to reveal that I need a bit more margin in my life to unplug.

Recently I had an opportunity to head outdoors for some ice fishing with the guys from the men’s ministry. I immediately went into what I had queued up for the weekend and focusing on the needs of others. At first glance, you might think…”What’s wrong with that,” right?

Fathers, Are You Making This 1 Huge Mistake?

Another powerful snow storm with blizzard conditions was hammering us in New Hampshire this past weekend. This was another in a series of storms that have been delivering heavy snow, wicked winds and significant snow accumulations on top of an already 2+ feet of snow.

We hunkered down in the family room around the warmth of the wood burning stove and decided to rent a movie. Ready to give up on the vast listing of non-interesting moves we came across ‘The Judge’ with Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall.

Quick synopsis. Robert Downey Jr. plays Hank Palmer, a successful defense attorney in Chicago, who finds himself returning to his childhood hometown to attend his mothers funeral.

If you go online and visit the common places for movie reviews you might skip over this movie because it got beaten up a bit by the movie critics. What do the critics know, right? I thought the movie was engaging and deeply moving and it hit a really BIG chord with me.

What chord was that?

What does this mean?

It means your love and your leadership are NOT based on your emotions or how your wife treats you or score keeping - instead, you anchor your love and leadership in Jesus!

Let me say it in another way...you are to lovingly lead by laying down your life for her and your family!

How God Uses The Wilderness To Shape Us

Life hurts in many different ways; through disappointments, disease, loss of loved ones, betrayal, or financial disasters like losing a job. We live in a fallen and broken world, a world that aches and every one of us at some time or another will feel the hurts of life. Have you ever had a best friend betray you? Or how about the time you pulled an all-nighter studying for an important exam and still failed it? Do you know someone who has walked through the anguish of a miscarriage or an abortion? Have you ever worked diligently and faithfully at your place of work expecting a promotion and lost out to a coworker? This list is endless…

How God Uses The Wilderness To Shape Us

Life hurts in many different ways; through disappointments, disease, loss of loved ones, betrayal, or financial disasters like losing a job. We live in a fallen and broken world, a world that aches and every one of us at some time or another will feel the hurts of life. Have you ever had a best friend betray you? Or how about the time you pulled an all-nighter studying for an important exam and still failed it? Do you know someone who has walked through the anguish of a miscarriage or an abortion? Have you ever worked diligently and faithfully at your place of work expecting a promotion and lost out to a coworker? This list is endless…

Life is not an injury-free sport.

The pain and the anguish of this journey called “life” somehow seeps deep down into the recesses of our hearts and beats us down day after day. Some of us can let the tears flow and find relief while others buy into the lie that we don’t feel those things.

The author of Lamentations finds himself immersed in the tragedy and pains of life. To better understand the real circumstances of that time we have to know what it was like during the final days of Jerusalem before King Nebuchadnezzar breached its walls. The days before the destruction of Jerusalem marked the fulfillment of Jeremiah’s words about the coming famine, pestilence, and sword. They were dark days full of terrors and horrors.

"We say we are Christians and that we love God and each other. If that is true,then why do we spend our spare time making sure that everyone knows the faults and weaknesses of others. Gossip is a terrible tool of the enemy used to cripple your ability to gain God’s favor. Stop talking about others and let God be the judge of all things righteous and unrighteous. If we say we trust Him (God) then why do we insist on helping Him in judging His children? Here is my word for the day... STOP IT!" -Debra Evans

Missing the Most Important Thing
By John Eldredge

We take folks through a discipleship program whereby they master any number of Christian precepts and miss the most important thing of all, the very thing for which we were created: intimacy with God. There are, after all, those troubling words Jesus spoke to those who were doing all the "right" things: "Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you'" (Matt. 7:23). Knowing God. That's the point.

You might recall the old proverb: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." The same holds true here. Teach a man a rule and you help him solve a problem; teach a man to walk with God and you help him solve the rest of his life. Truth be told, you couldn't master enough principles to see yourself safely through this Story.... more »

Teach a man a rule and you help him solve a problem; teach a man to walk with God and you help him solve the rest of his life. Truth be told, you couldn't master enough principles to see yourself safely through this Story. There are too many surprises, ambiguities, exceptions to the rule. Things are hard at work—is it time to make a move? What has God called you to do with your life? Things are hard at home—is this just a phase your son is going through, or should you be more concerned? You can't seem to shake this depression—is it medical or something darker? What does the future hold for you—and how should you respond?

Only by walking with God can we hope to find the path that leads to life. That is what it means to be a disciple. After all—aren't we "followers of Christ"? Then by all means, let's actually follow him. Not ideas about him. Not just his principles. Him.

The Psalmist said, "I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living" (Ps. 27:13). He had not yet seen the Lord's answer to his prayers, but he was confident he would see, and his confidence sustained him.

Faith that believes it will see, will keep us from becoming discouraged. We will laugh at seemingly impossible situations while we watch with delight to see how God is going to open a path through our Red Sea. It is in these places of severe testing, with no human way out of our difficulty, that our faith grows and is strengthened.

Dear troubled one, have you been waiting for God to work during long nights and weary days, fearing you have been forgotten? Lift up your head and begin praising Him right now for the deliverance that is on the way from you.

Moms, You’re Holding On Too Tight!

Unfortunately we live in a time where the “accepted normal” is kids having to grow up in a fractured family due to divorce or without fathers who are active in their lives and often the heavy lifting is unfairly burdened on the mothers. The other unintended consequence of this trend is the dilemma of weak or emasculated men reaching epidemic proportions in society…where many are asking, “where have all the men gone?”

Because of this, I’ve noticed that mothers are becoming more over protective and controlling of their sons, which is causing significant tension when it comes time for them to stretch their wings and leave the nest. The other dynamic that’s rearing its ugly head is these sons are finding it harder to cleave to their wives and step up to lead in their homes.

Moms, You’re Holding On Too Tight!

Unfortunately we live in a time where the “accepted normal” is kids having to grow up in a fractured family due to divorce or without fathers who are active in their lives and often the heavy lifting is unfairly burdened on the mothers.

Because of this, I’ve noticed that mothers are becoming more over protective and controlling of their sons, which is causing significant tension when it comes time for them to stretch their wings and leave the nest. The other dynamic that’s rearing its ugly head is these sons are finding it harder to cleave to their wives and step up to lead in their homes. Too often I talk to men who cannot make decisions for themselves or their families, have no real direction or plan for their life, choose a path of passivity and are paralyzed of their future. They are carrying a broken compass and have absolutely no mission in life!

When you dig deeper into these issues, you can often connect the dots to not having a fully present father figure in their lives and/or a mother who never allowed her son the opportunity to stop being her “little boy”. Of course a mother’s efforts are well intended, but they unknowingly stand in the way of their son’s father (or father figure) ability to provide a path for them to become men by keeping their “little boys” under their constant protection and control.

To all the mothers out there who doing much of the heavy lifting these days…

How Poetry Can Reveal The Masculine Heart

One of the foundational pillars of Heartstone Journey is: Helping men discover their authentic manhood in Jesus Christ

If you Google ‘masculinity’ you will be presented with numerous definitions of what true manhood is. Yes, getting to the core of what manhood is includes the personification of courage, bravery and sacrifice…but many have bought into the narrative that these terms exclude the creative side of men.

To level set things…here is how authentic manhood is defined here on Heartstone Journey.

An Open Letter from an Entrepreneur Dad to His Kids on How to Find Success
By Terry Howerton

I became a dad more abruptly than most. After illness and much too early deaths in my family, two pre-teen girls suddenly called my home theirs. And while I was always a close part of my nieces’ young lives, I rather abruptly made the transition from the fun uncle to the (occasionally) boring dad full of rules and guidance.

I’ve spent a lifetime as an entrepreneur, starting a company in high school and spending every day of the next 30 years building, funding and mentoring many startups. I’ve enjoyed success, and failed more times than I remember.

And while I was always a close part of my nieces’ young lives, I rather abruptly made the transition from the fun uncle to the (occasionally) boring dad full of rules and guidance.

I’ve spent a lifetime as an entrepreneur, starting a company in high school and spending every day of the next 30 years building, funding and mentoring many startups. I’ve enjoyed success, and failed more times than I remember.

But without a doubt the most rewarding -- and challenging -- startup of my life has been my family and the young women they are becoming. Now, many years have passed, and they will venture out into a world of their own soon.

I have no idea if they will be entrepreneurs like me and help start new businesses and organizations, or be part of startup teams. And frankly it doesn’t really matter. Those are their choices to make. But I do hope they’re learning to be entrepreneurial in their world view, because it will make them better at whatever life’s work they choose, and it will make them better people.

The characteristics I’ve seen over and again among the best entrepreneurs I have known, and the traits that I’ve seen that help startup teams succeed, have much in common. I think these lessons matter regardless of what path you take in life.

I want my kids to be intellectually curious. To be helpful, courageous and reach beyond their comfort zone. I want them to be driven, to have passion that makes them work hard and love doing so. I want them to define their own success and achieve it. I want them to enjoy and be happy with the life of their own making.

So here’s an open letter to my kids:

What Nails In A Fence Can Reveal About Anger

Ever notice that people seem to be getting more and more angry these days? Road rage, riots, struggling economy, turmoil around the world…I could go on and on about the rising levels of anger. In today’s society, it seems like more and more people are lashing out. Let`s face it, we all get frustrated from time to time, and now see every day people flying off the handle in seconds…usually over the small stuff. Not sure about you, but it feels like we’re living in an angry society and it’s getting worse.

How Picking Up Stones Changed My Life

We finished lunch with a couple of other hikers on the back deck of the AMC hut and began our final ascent. It was getting colder, and we began putting on warmer gear as we navigated through more snow and ice. With the thinning of the air, the tighter gripping of the cold, and the thickening silence, an overwhelming desire to run ahead came over me. I motioned to my friend that I was going to run up ahead a bit, which he had no issue with. Closing in on the summit, with my heart pounding and my lungs stinging from the cold air, I somehow knew that a milestone of this journey was at hand. I saw a large rock come into view, converging with my path, and I soon found myself standing upon this large rock.

I saw a large rock come into view, converging with my path, and I soon found myself standing upon this large rock. It was as if the Lord had gone ahead and had prepared this place of peaceful solitude and comfort so I could clearly hear His voice without all the other distractions. Standing there upon the rock, I took a deep breath, lifted my head to the Heavens, and began to have a conversation with Him. Time relaxed for a moment. It was awesome.

It was here at this place of desolation, on this rock, on this mountain, where He spoke to my heart. Do you want to know what He said to me? He asked me to collect four stones when I got to the top of the mountain. So, standing in my own strength, leaning on my own understanding and ending the tranquil scene He had prepared for me, my response was, “You want me to do what?”

Culture says, "If you don't accept me the way that I am then you don't love me." But that's simply not true. Love and acceptance are completely different concepts. For example, while God loves us unconditionally, he doesn't accept us unconditionally. The Bible says, “That IF you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Ultimately, being loved by God isn’t the same as being accepted by God. He has terms for acceptance and so should we. However, today's culture calls any "terms for acceptance" bigotry, intolerance, or judgement. The lesson is this: We must love people the way God loves people. But we must never compromise our boundaries, our principles, or our moral code simply because someone insists that having "terms" is unloving. -Dale Partridge

Men, I don’t know what you are facing as a husband, as a father, but we are being taken out left and right. There is a war on the family unit and significant ground is being lost. This will not be won politically, by the government, by the courts, by the media or by sitting around waiting for the next guy to do something. This war will be one by us manning up and stepping into the role of fatherhood that God has called us into.

Call To Be Missional

“We need fewer mission statements and more missions. What people really need is a sense of purpose or urgency in their lives. That’s what gives life meaning. And unfortunately, a lot of people are on autopilot. They know what they do every day. They know how long they do it. And they know what they get paid to do it. But they really don’t why they’re doing it. One of the ways to create a personal mission statement, and perhaps find your sense of mission, is to ask yourself, ‘Why am I doing this, besides the money?’ Answering that question can give you a great burst of energy.” -Mark Sandborn

Have you answered the question: Why am I doing this, besides the money?’
