I Was Told Not To Tell Anyone, But I Know I Can Trust You.

Posted by Aaron Walker on Dec 14, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Have you ever had someone come up to you "listen I was told something and I am not really suppose to tell you, but you're my buddy and I know I can trust you so I am telling you..." How many times have you heard that? How many times have you done that? I challenge you. When someone starts with "hey, I am not suppose to tell you this..."" hold your hand up and say "stop, don't tell me. I don't want to be a part of you becoming a liar." I promise you, that person will respect you more! Be that man of integrity!

Frank used to work for me. Each and everyday when I ask him how's he doing, he responded to me with enthusiasm and positive attitude! Watch the video and hear my story about Frank, why you should look for positive things only, why you should choose to be happy and how you can make someone happy today!

What Is Your Leaky Faucet?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Nov 23, 2020 8:09:02 AM

Last year, there was a leaky faucet outside the hydrant. It was dripping and I kept saying I'll fix that next week. Then, the weather went crazy cold and I still have not fixed it and I guess you know how that turned out.

I thought about how that equates to our personal lives. We keep having that mentality "I'll take care of it later." What decisions are you making today that are going to affect you adversely 30, 60, 90 days from now? I want to encourage you today, take an inventory.

Procrastination Could Be Considered Selfish

Posted by Aaron Walker on Nov 2, 2020 9:00:00 AM

There'a a lot of areas of our life that we procrastinate about. And we always say that's how I am. But we have to stop.

 

Procrastination is a bad thing. It's affecting you and the people around you. It's rude. It's selfish. Saw a sign before: "Your procrastination does not dictate an emergency for me." Quit saying I am a procrastinator! Don't claim and own that.

 

Stop procrastinating! Get out there today and say "I am going to own it! I am not doing it anymore because I am tired of disrupting other people's lives and I am tired of disrupting my life. So, today forward, I will procrastinate no more!"

I'm Sorry, I Killed Your Son!

Posted by Aaron Walker on Oct 9, 2020 10:29:35 AM

I just walked out of my accountability group and we talked about something important. I want to see if some of you guys want to go along with us in this.

I'm embarrassed to admit that about a month ago I got a speeding ticket. I went to traffic court this past Monday and there was about a three and a half hour class that I had to attend. At the end of the class, there was a about a five-minute video. There was a lady on the video that talked about her son, 16 years old that was killed by a drunk driver. And it really resonated with me because many of you guys know my story. And you've heard my testimony before back in 2001 where a pedestrian walked out in front of me and I ran over and killed the pedestrian. No, it wasn't my fault. I mean, you know he just didn't see me and so clearly, it wasn't my fault.

But when I started thinking through that, my cell phone came to my mind. And I've been guilty in the past of using the cell phone inappropriately. And I’ve texted when I shouldn't have texted or I've answered, a reply or whatever. Whatever, you fill in the blank for you on using your cellphone. But I told that story this morning to my accountability group and we made a commitment to each other: that we were going to put our cell phones in the console. Only maybe answer the phone but no texting, no Facebook, no messaging. No distractions. Here’s the reason I want to issue the challenge to you guys, as well. I don't want to go to a parent someday and look at them and sit down across the table and say, “I'm sorry I killed your son.”

Listen! I know personally, listen to me, I know what that feeling is like to run over and take somebody's life. And if I had been doing something that I shouldn't have been doing, I would have never gotten over it. You don't get over it anyway. Even the accident that I experienced 16 years ago I didn't get over it. God just gave me the grace to be able to deal with it. But if I had to go and sit down in front of a parent and say “hey, I'm sorry I didn't see your son run out in front of me on his bicycle” or whatever, hit a car and take somebody's life as a result of me texting on my phone and being distracted, I know I would never get over that. There's no way you would get over that as well.

So I guess what I'm asking you to do is go along with us in our accountability group and say, “You know what Big A, I'm guilty of that too. I've done that far too long. It's a problem for me as well.”

I'm going to tell you, I started doing this last Monday putting my phone in the console of my car and it's been difficult. I'm just going to be straight up honest with you. So many times I want to pull it out and make that text or reply to somebody or make that call. I'm just not going to do it. It's just not worth the risk. It's the very thing that I talk to you guys all the time.

Let's make intelligent decisions. Let us don't look back and say I'm sorry I won't do it again. But let's look forward and say it's best right. Well I want you to reply, baby, on this thread and say, “You know what, I'm in with you! I'm going to raise my hand. And I'm going to do that. We'll hold each other accountable. We’ll share this, We’ll help.”

We have got to get control of this because each and every day I see people driving off the road they're coming in my lane. A guy almost hit me head on the other day. And when he come over the hill he was on his phone. I saw him. I saw what he was doing.

It's really serious and I want you to hear me more so serious with this than any message that I put out there, anything that I've talked to you about. It's become an epidemic because we're so accustomed to using our cell phones. So I won't beat it in the bushes. I won't harp on you too much. But I want you to reply to this and say, “Hey I'm with you. I'm going to do the same thing.”
