How To Increase Your Ambition

Posted by Aaron Walker on Apr 9, 2021 9:15:00 AM

Sometimes I get more ambition than I should have and I wrestled with it. Sometimes I get over ambitious and I get disappointed when results don’t coincide with my ambition. Oftentimes when your ambition is tied to a financial goal it doesn't really scratch the itch. I want to encourage you today to embrace the tension. It is what keeps us safe. If there is no tension in your life, something is going array. Enjoy where you are presently at. Learn to be content but don’t confuse that with complacency. I recommend you get and read Seth Buechley’s book Ambition: Leading with Gratitude and hopefully it will help you have more ambition or learn to be content with your ambitiousness.

Is Your Home A Safe Place?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Apr 7, 2021 9:00:00 AM

How are you as a father? How do you interact with your kids? Are you verbally abusive? How do you instill discipline in your home? I want you to really think through the way you discipline your kids. The environment that you're creating at home, like are they excited when you get home? Are they like looking forward to it or they like run and jump up in your arms or they like run into the room and hiding or they're coward and down and they don't want anything to do with you because dad's in a bad mood?

What Do I Need To Do To Feel Better About Myself?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 26, 2021 9:15:00 AM

I learned yesterday that Google has a technology that could give you up to 1000 mbps upload and download speed. I got 21 mbps in my computer the past 20 plus years and I made it okay. Isn't that fast enough? I started thinking how that relates to our life. We always want bigger, faster better and shinier without even knowing how to use the simple things that we got.

It's the same way in business, we think if we just get over there, then we will be happy. If we just get this, then it will be better.

I want to encourage you not to compare yourself all the time. I do it too, I am guilty. I don't have it all figure out. But I know after almost 40 years of business, I can tell you that we need to learn to be content with who God created us to be. There's always somebody that can do it better, got it bigger, can earn more money, got a better book, got a better website, got a faster upload and download speed! There's always somebody! And if you get into that trap, you will be miserable living your life!

What you got to do is say "Hey I am learning to be content but not complacent!" I think that's what we need to do. Learn to be content at where you are right now. Enjoy the things!

Why do you want to speed up, to be faster, get more, get bigger? When are you going to enjoy? Today! When are you going to enjoy those kids? Today! When are you going to enjoy your spouse's company? Today! It's always later, it's always I will be happy when, with a little more money, with a little more time. Guys, you have to enjoy the day! You need to stop comparing yourself to others! You are enough! What you have today is enough for today. Take your time! Go out! Find your own Station Camp Greenway to hang out on, to meditate, to listen, to praise and worship! Whatever it is, enjoy it!

Stop thinking you got to do it like that guy! Got to be bigger, better, always trying to strive to get just a little more but you fail to see the beautiful sunshine, the good things around you.

I want you to learn to enjoy your life, today! Strive to do things better but learn not to compare yourself to other people. I have to remind myself of that daily. I promise you, if you do that, you will enjoy today much better. Stop wishing for I will be happy when and then. Okay? Listen, enjoy today. Strive to do better but not compare!

Agonizing Regrets Or Awesome Memories, It's Your Choice

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 19, 2021 9:15:00 AM

During my quiet time this morning, I remember my post two years ago about "The Empty Chair" and it made me sad. In my den, there are two recliners, one for me and one for Robin. This is where we hang out and do life together. But one day, one of those recliners will be empty, one of us will be gone. I know that's pretty sad. The truth is, we're going to have horrific regrets or unbelievable memories, one or the other. It doesn't just apply to marriage but to every facet of life, every person we encounter.

One of our mastermind guys is dealing with bitterness. He can't let it go. Believe me I know exactly what it is. A guy did me very wrong that I wanted to shoot to him. I hated that guy. I didn't want anything to do with him. But six months ago, I went to him and I hugged him. And I told him I love you and I am sorry. I had to let it go because I was the only one being held captive, I was the only one being harmed. I was cheating my family because I was disallowing Robin to live the kind of life because I got bitterness harbored in me.

Guys, some of you, today, you want to hug somebody and tell them you love them and you're sorry. If you can't do that, confess it to somebody else and let it go. It squelches everything in you. We only got one life. We don't get a do over. Get rid of that stuff. You say, they don't deserve it! Well, it's called grace. It's things that people don't deserve but are given to them.

Listen, when you quit demanding justice you will know you have forgiven somebody. When you get bitterness out of your life, you will have a joy that I can't even begin what could transpire. It will change your life. Today, let it go! Share this message to your family as some of them needs to hear it.

If It Truly Is Important You Will Find A Way

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 5, 2021 9:30:00 AM

I want to tell you something. I hear guys every single day because I coach, talk about the things that they do for six weeks or 90 days and it's not working and they abandoned. I met an an old lady the other day in the YMCA. As I observe her, she kept going back and forth. I don't know how old she was and I waited until she got finished and then I went up to her and I said, "Man! You are so inspirational to me and I want to talk to you for a minute?" She said, "I can't hear you that well speak up." So started speaking up to her and she was just a sweetest old lady I've ever seen in my life and I said, "How long have you been exercising?" She said, "I exercise six days a week." I said, "Man, that is amazing you've been doing that very long as she says every day for 17 years. It was so inspirational to me since she said that and I said, Man, I hope when I'm your age I'm able to do the same thing!" She said, "You don't want to know how old I am." I said, "Would you tell me", and she said, "I'm 87". This lady does her exercise every single day except Sunday. I thought, that's discipline! Where are we missing it in regards to our business career not implementing some strategies like the senior adult lady does at 87 years old. Six days a week she goes to the YMCA and works out! I'll tell you looking at her I think she's a better shape than I am and the reason is because she's disciplined! We can't let things get in the way. We can't let obstacles get in the way. I want to encourage you guys to be disciplined. If it's important, you'll do it!
