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?

Small Minds Talk About People, Great Minds Discuss Ideas

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 10, 2021 9:00:00 AM

I heard the saying years ago that small minds talk about people and great minds talk about ideas. It is very true! We need to stop talking negative and talk about people. Quit blowing our own whistle, boasting or bragging. We need to start talking about ideas, talking about sharing and helping. A mindset of something like, "How can I help you? What can I do to take you to the next level? What can I do to introduce you to the right person?". Be a part of the solution not part of the problem.

What Do I Do Once I've Made A Mistake

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 3, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Do not be afraid of doing something new. If it doesn't work out right well okay, you can say, "Hey, I tried!" If it didn't work, pivot change. Do something else but do not be afraid that it's going to fail. Do not think what other people will say or how they are going to view you. Do not allow any fear to keep you in a place - a place that you're not going to experience the life that you want. It's okay to make a mistake. Failure is in not trying not in not succeeding. Shift your mindset! Go out there and go for it. I want to encourage you today to stop being afraid. Pull the trigger! Do something, try something, do it methodically, don't think you have to do it all at one time right. If you're in a spot that you don't enjoy, transition slowly. Get accountability, get people around you that can help you. Incrementally implement a process and a system and a plan that you can work your way out of where you're at.

Always Kiss Me Goodnight

Posted by Aaron Walker on Feb 10, 2021 9:00:00 AM

You can make all the money you want, you can be as successful as you want, you can impress everybody, you can own whatever but if your family is not right, it's all useless. That is why I talk about the family about 75% more times than I do business.


Robin has a sign that sits on her nightstand and it says "always kiss me goodnight." So for 37 years now, almost every day, every year of our marriage, about 99 and half percent of the time we always practice this.

The Bible teaches us not to go to bed at night letting the anger stay with you. You got to deal with it. And even though we've gone to bed some nights, we fight just like you do, no we're not perfect, but Robin always comes up to me and kisses me goodnight. Kind of softens the anger a little bit. We'll talk through it and work through it. It's important that we deal with things. There are other things in life that we dealt with that have been instrumenta but Robin has taken the lead role in this. She said it's not healthy for us to go to bed angry at night.

Guys I want you to honor your wife. Ladies, do the same to your husband. Maybe implement that strategy yourself and get that little sign so you can can have a great relationship. Don't go to bed angry. A lot of times people say well a good night sleep will do you good but I'm going to tell you, a good night sleep just let you be passive and you just sweep it undr the rug. And there will be a day that you'll deal with it. It will be a lot easier to deal with things that day.

Honor that covenant because it will pay huge dividends in the future. Our families are the most important relationships on the planet. So honor them well and I just want you to pay attention. Always kiss me goodnight and it will serve you well.

Daddy, Can We Play?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Feb 8, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Great habits and good company have a way of turning times like this from tragedy to triumph.

While I was working on the new personal assessment that I'm putting together for our community. When I was reading through the family section, it kind of touched me, my own heart. I started thinking about my own family, and my daughters and my grandkids.

Guys, listen, I want you to lean in. Family is the most important dynamic of what we deal with each and everyday. I am all fired up about making money. I love to make money. I never want to take away from making more money today. Don't hear me wrong. I'm not saying making money's wrong. I want you to go make all the money that you can. Absolutely. What I don't want you to do is do it at the expense of your family.
And what's difficult for some of you guys to hear right now is you're young, you've got a lot of financial obligations and responsibilities ahead of you. I know you're torn. I get it man. Listen, believe me, for 40 years I've been getting that. I understand it. But some of you guys are doing this success thing at the expense of your children.

Anybody can be a father but it takes a real man to be a daddy. I want you to build those boundaries. And be careful. When you come home at night and your little Billy or Susie says, "Daddy can we play?" Man shut those electronics off and go out in the yard and play with those kids. They never ever will ask you "Hey Daddy, how much money did you make today?" They don't care. What they want is your time and listen. Spend the time with them. Don't cheat them out of the most important part of your day.
Don't come home exhausted. Man up and go out there an play with those kids. And I promise you the returns on that time invested will be invaluable.

Don't waste your whole life coming home one day with a pocketful of money to a house full of strangers.
When you get old like me, fat and bald headed, you can look back and not have regrets.

Again, make all the money you can but man when those kids come up to you and say "Daddy can we go out and play?" Just answer "Yes, I'm on my way!"
