Jason T. Wiser22,032*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.

Why The Remake Of Ben-Hur Is About Forgiveness, Not Chariots!

The pile of books that I’d like to read keeps growing and so does the list of movies I’d like to watch. One of the movies on my watch list was the remake of Ben-Hur. So, recently after digging out from a New England snow storm…I made some dinner, poured a glass of wine and rented Ben-Hur.

Didn’t know what to expect from this remake since the 1959 film, based on Lew Wallace’s nineteenth century novel ‘Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ’, starring Charlton Heston was so epic. I think just about everyone would agree that Charlton Heston would be a tough act to follow.

The Great Career Hoax

Dads all over the world are putting their careers in front of their family. I did this for years until a divorce woke me up out of my stupor.

An HBR blog post, ‘Why Men Work So Many Hours’ concludes, It’s not productivity. It’s not innovation. It’s identity. If you’ve lived a life where holidays are a nuisance, where you’ve missed your favorite uncle’s funeral and your children’s childhoods, in a culture that conflates manly heroism with long hours, it’s going to take more than a few regressions to convince you it wasn’t really necessary, after all, for your work to devour you.

How Four Stones Taught Me To Live In The Moment

We spend so much time dwelling on the past, thinking about the future or working 80+ hours a week…and for what?

In the 24th chapter of Exodus, God speaks to Moses and says, “Come up to Me on the mountain and stay here…” Camping out on this for a bit, I realized that God understands human nature. God knew that Moses would spend lots of energy making the climb to the top of the mountain. And, like all of us, when we get to the top of the mountain we’re already thinking about and planning our descent.

What most of us miss is that we won’t pause and be present on the “mountain top”…and we miss out on what’s right there in front of us. Because we can’t unplug or pause, we miss those awesome life moments of being in the moment with God, with our families, fill in the blank _____________.

The issue is — are our eyes are open to see what any given moment is revealing to us. Here is a snippet of my adventures where I started to understand the importance of living in the moment.

Is Going To Church Absolutely Necessary?

Sunday is coming and going to church is looming on the horizon.

Let me know if you can relate to this. There’s allot going on and the tug-o-war begins on how to make everything happen — including going to church. Then it happens…you’re subconscious, a well-meaning church friend or a pushy pastor begins to woodpecker you that you need to go to church.

For many of us, Sundays without church can bring a tremendous amount of guilt! Church can be a wellspring for spiritual development and growth, but it’s not the only place for this to happen. People really buy into the narrative that we can only find our spiritual life within the walls of our church and if we look elsewhere, we’re doing it wrong or the experience is somehow “not real”.

If you can’t or won’t find your way into a building called “church” on Sunday, be encouraged because you can fully walking it out and love Him without perfect attendance.

So, is going to church absolutely necessary? The short answer is no, but keep reading…

What The Movie Gladiator Can Teach Us About Ourselves!

The more I watch these movies, the deeper they effect me. The scene where Commodus learns of gladiator’s true identity really had an impact on me, because how many of us truly know who we are?

The answer Maximus gives Commodus is awesome, it’s breath taking. It builds to a crescendo as the narrative punches Commodus in the face. This man knows who he is and what he’s made of!

Where does someone go to learn an answer like that? To learn their true name that can NEVER be taken from them.

What Martin Luther King Can Teach You About Achieving Your Dreams
By Marla Tabaka

"I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land."

Ironically, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered these words in his famed "Mountain Top" speech on April 3, 1968, only one day prior to the tragic shooting that would end his all-too-short life.

King fought for a dream too large for most of humankind to imagine possible; yet he had a gift that would paint the vision for all to see. Admittedly, we have a long way to go, but where would we be today if the famed Nobel Peace Prize winner had not courageously and peacefully combated racial inequality?... more »

Admittedly, we have a long way to go, but where would we be today if the famed Nobel Peace Prize winner had not courageously and peacefully combated racial inequality? King's dream lives on; touching our lives significantly and growing closer to reality with each new generation.

"I say to you, this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren't fit to live."

King gifted us with powerful lessons, too many to count, woven into the tapestry of his pursuit of a dream that would change the world. Here are only a few:

But the remake takes a bit of a different path from the original with more of an emphasis on the power of Jesus Christ to bring about forgiveness — a welcome emphasis that is so needed today.

Simple Truth
Narrative By Pete Wilson

I think most of us begin our Christian journey with this simple truth.

I'm broken. I need Jesus. The end.

However as we launch out on this new journey it doesn't take long before we begin to hear this growing and incessant whisper that says, 'Try harder, do more.'

Sing more.
Memorize more.
Journal more.
Preach more.
Pray more.
Evangelize more.
Serve more.

This approach can look quite spiritual to those around us; however, it’s often rooted in a inner conviction that our worth as a Christian is dependent upon our ability to outperform those around us. Behind this spiritual facade is a fragile and insecure heart desperately attempting to get God to love us more.

Behind this spiritual facade is a fragile and insecure heart desperately attempting to get God to love us more.

The cross isn't something we start with and then move on from. The cross isn't just the starting line of our faith, it's the centerpiece. Grace isn't something we need just for salvation, it's like air for the believer.

So today when you hear that whisper in your head that says 'Try harder, do more,' go back to this.

I'm broken. I need Jesus. The end.

Generosity

Imagine that Roman soldier comes on a cold night and demands that you give up your coat. You are with your family and they do this to humiliate you. Yeah, it’s cold outside and this is your only coat, but image if you gave them your coat and your shirt too?

You let them know that their greed cannot overpower your generosity. A freedom that they will never understand.

It's A Choice, Not An Addiction!

"Married men, I don't care what "science" says about pornography. Looking at porn is planting the seed of adultery in your marriage. It's not okay, it's not healthy, and it's the literal act of not loving the woman you vowed to protect until death. I'm so tired of men saying "It's an addiction." No buddy. It's a choice. It's a lack of self-control. And it's an attack on your bride. Stop it. Grow up. Heal your real sex life. Restore the realistic expectations for your wife in the bedroom and bring back the dignity to your marriage. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20)" -Dale Partridge

Why Mentorship Is A Solution To A Fatherless Generation

I believe one of the most valuable tools a man can possess in walking out this adventure called life is a mentor.

Have you sought out a mentor to help you navigate your personal and professional spheres? Maybe you found your mentor at church, in a professional setting, during your first job search or perhaps it was when you transitioned careers.

Why Mentorship Is A Solution To A Fatherless Generation

I believe one of the most valuable tools a man can possess in walking out this adventure called life is a mentor.

Have you sought out a mentor to help you navigate your personal and professional spheres? Maybe you found your mentor at church, in a professional setting, during your first job search or perhaps it was when you transitioned careers. Either way — your mentor was that valuable compass that most likely provided much needed guidance helping you overcome challenges and life’s obstacles. And if you’re fortunate to link up with a solid mentor, they inspired you along the way.

I’ve been blessed to have had a handful of mentors that took the time to walk with me on my journey. Not seeing the value of a mentor early on in life, I wish I better understood that having someone older and wiser than me speaking into my life would have saved me from many pitfalls. Definitely would have helped me navigate the road of life better too.

I can count my life mentors on one hand and my most recent mentor helped me through some of the toughest trials of my life. He helped me walk out of some really tough circumstances, he helped me get my book out there and is always available to walk with me as a life coach if needed. Entering into a place of accountability with someone who you trust, who can share life experiences with and provide the much needed wisdom to navigate it — is invaluable.

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." —William Arthur Ward

Pause for a moment and consider your own need for a mentor at this place in your life. Many people I talk to, convince themselves that they can navigate life in their own strength and it’s sad to watch them stumble and fall. I’m not saying that a mentor will prevent all stumbling in your life, but they will definitely help you avoid some landmines along the way if you listen to them. I recommend mentors for men and women, but I’m speaking to the guys here because many boys have had fathers who were not involved or just absent. A boy without a compass is like an explorer without a map!

Consider the following story....

A Wolf Named Lupus

Here is Angela’s story.

Lupus SLE is an autoimmune disease that basically attacks its own body tissue. It is like having an overactive immune system. Immunosuppressive drugs are usually what stops lupus from progressing. Lupus can also attack major body organs such as the heart, kidneys, liver, joints, and just about anywhere in the body. I was not aware of this debilitating disease until I was diagnosed with it in 2004. Most people with lupus are often misdiagnosed because lupus can mask itself, causing it to appear like many other illnesses. As my battle with lupus progressed, it was clearly evident that my life would never be the same.

Every part of my body was in complete agony. All my joints ached and I had inflammation throughout my entire body causing pain everywhere. The worst part of it was trying to deal with the intense pain. There wasn... more »

As my battle with lupus progressed, it was clearly evident that my life would never be the same.

Every part of my body was in complete agony. All my joints ached and I had inflammation throughout my entire body causing pain everywhere. The worst part of it was trying to deal with the intense pain. There was no pain medicine that could take the pain away. It made giving birth seem like a day in the park. I remember putting a towel in my mouth while screaming in pain in my bedroom, so that my kids wouldn’t hear me cry. The worst part of struggling with this disease, was watching the effect this had on my children. I tried so hard to hide my pain from them, but they knew exactly what was going on. I could see the fear in their face, and the pain in their eyes. It was killing me. I struggled in pain when I walked and had constant pain in my kidneys, but by the grace of God, my kidneys were never damaged. The lupus was out of control, forcing me to leave my job, because of this debilitating disease.

Never Forget, You are a Father!
By Michael Byron Smith

Here’s something to put on your wall at work or your bathroom, where you will see it every day. A reminder of the important things in life, as a father.

Most of us men are good people, but too many of us are not as adept at being good fathers. The difference lies in everyday life and our priorities. Some men are intentional about placing a career ahead of ‘Dadhood’. Many more of us do the same thing, but we do it subconsciously. When your children grow up, they will most likely think of you with love--but will they have your respect? We must occasionally stop, look, and listen to our children and our role as their father.

Some Things to Ponder:

Ever notice you become a reflection of the people you surround yourself with?

Take a quick inventory of the people you've surrounded yourself with...what do you see? People who are having a positive influence on you? People who are challenging you to become a better person? People who are speaking wisdom and life into you? People who are helping you build good character in yourself? ...or a bunch of knuckleheads?

"Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm." -Proverbs 13:20

This Proverb shouts the importance of who you choose to surround yourself with and the importance of healthy boundaries...so choose wisely!

Balancing Marriage and Career
By Dale Partridge

When a married man asks me for help with his business, I first ask him about his wife. Because a thriving career with a failing marriage is something I never want to help someone achieve.

Men, we must realize that the report card of respect comes not from the size of our paychecks, but the level of radiance from the woman we claim to be priority in our lives. She is the symbol of your success. She is your life's greatest achievement.

Marriage is a challenging commitment. There is a cost involved. Maybe a dream that cannot be chased, a career advancement that cannot be taken, or a schedule that can't be followed.

Bottom Line: Our work should never compromise our marriage. But the question I have for you is this: Does your wife feel cherished? Does she feel led in the areas she expects you to be... more »

Men, we must realize that the report card of respect comes not from the size of our paychecks, but the level of radiance from the woman we claim to be priority in our lives. She is the symbol of your success. She is your life's greatest achievement.

Marriage is a challenging commitment. There is a cost involved. Maybe a dream that cannot be chased, a career advancement that cannot be taken, or a schedule that can't be followed.

Bottom Line: Our work should never compromise our marriage. But the question I have for you is this: Does your wife feel cherished? Does she feel led in the areas she expects you to be responsible to? Do you feel like you're fulfilling the role God called you to play in your relationship?

So before you search for the next marketing strategy or hire the newest executive consultant, check if that time might be better spent investing into the woman you made a covenant with years prior.

There's nothing wrong with kicking butt in your career. Just never at the cost of someone you vowed to die for.___

How To Hit The Target — All The Time!

Before God can teach us how to become warriors, who can effectively define and hit the target, we have to put our desire to control and our self-centerdeness aside. Remember David’s confrontation with Goliath? That was a target David could not afford to miss!

At a screening for Denzel Washington's new movie, Fences, at the African American Museum of History and Culture in Washington, D.C., a reporter asked Washington what he thought of "fake news" and its effect...

"If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you do read it, you're misinformed."

"So what do you do?" asked the reporter.

Washington said, “That’s a great question. What is the long-term effect of too much information? One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore."

"So what responsibility do you all have?" he said. "To tell the truth. Not just to be first. But to tell the truth."

"Anything you practice you'll get good at — including BS," said Washington. "But you heard me. Does that make sense?”

3 Universal Desires Of Men Revealed by King Arthur

Some of my favorite movies include Braveheart, Gladiator, 300, Lord Of The Rings, Last Of The Mohicans and Lone Survivor. Another honorable mention to this list is the 2004 remake of King Arthur.

Here is a short summary shared by Claudio Carval. In 400 AD, the Roman Empire extends to Britain and the Romans become impressed with the fight skills of the warrior Sarmatian people, which are spared, but have to send their sons to serve Rome in the cavalry for fifteen years. Only after these services, these knights are free to return home. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table have their last mission before achieving their freedom.

I chose this summary because it ends with a powerful word that is not always connected with authentic manhood and that is “freedom”. This theme ebbs and flows all through out history in narratives of the men who fought in the Revolutionary War and the movies mentioned above. Of course there are endless realities and tales of the bravery of men fighting for the cause of freedom, but I want to stay with this for a minute…for the men of today.

Why is this important for the men of today?

You Won’t Find God’s Gift Under A Tree, In A Manger Or On A Cross

Ever wonder why God would become a man, to be born in such a lowly manner, and let us treat Him the way we did? Ever wonder why Jesus would, while existing “before all things” and holding “first place in everything” (Colossians 1:17,18); would agree to come to earth as a baby, suffer the abuse He suffered, and die such a painful death? If we continue reading in Colossians we read: “For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”

How awesome is that?
