Does Your Interest Exceed Your Commitment?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Apr 14, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Does your interest level outweigh or exceed your level of commitment? Man, it’s a hot topic that we're discussing in Iron Sharpens Iron each and every week. And I want to discuss it with you guys.

We talk to some organizations where the interest level is huge but there's very little commitment. And I started asking myself some questions. Why? Why is that they don't have people around them to help propel them to the next level? They're not there to encourage them. There's no accountability. The list goes on and on and on. But what I'm finding out is when people surround themselves with people that are interested, of like minds, have the same core values, have the same principles in mind as they do, they catapults them to the next level.

Let me ask you. I know you're interested but how committed are you? Are you willing to take the time and certain energy and the resources and put into it each and every day in order to obtain your goals? Or is your interest level just at a point where you'd like to have it but you're not willing to put the work in to get it?

My Teenager is Having Sex And I Don't Know What To Do

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 24, 2021 9:09:06 AM

Twenty years ago, my eldest just started driving. While I was teaching her I asked her to speed up until both of us are nervous. I wasn't even sure how fast we were going! And then I asked her to slow down. She asked me why I asked her to do that, and I answered because I want her to know what it will do. I took the mystery out of that driving experience, which could get her into trouble. Since then Brooke has not gotten any speeding ticket.

This past week, one of the Mastermind members came to the group and told us his teenage daughter is having sex. It broke our hearts. Listen, I am not casting stones at anyone. Dads, I am talking to you! We can do preventive measures to avoid this. Moms, you're very important.


We used to go to the mountains once a year and I remove my dad hat off. I made it comfortable for them to to talk about anything. And yes, we talked about sex. I didn't make them feel it's taboo! I didn't tell them "Go talk to your Mom!"
I remember I talked to them one at a time. I told them, "no man on the planet is going to tell you the truth like I will about the topic of sex." So I told them what men are thinking, what they will say that are all lies. I gave them a book, Every Man's Battle because I want them to understand how a man thinks.


My point is, we have to open the conversation to talk to our kids. Men, never again should you tell them to talk to your wife about things that you can.
Keep in mind, you also need to be a good model.


God entrusted us our kids to teach them. Take time. Open up a dialogue.
An interesting statistics, the number one deterrent to avoid teenage sex is having dinner together as a family.


So, even if it's uncomfortable, we have to tell them the truth.

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.

I'm Stuck And I Don't Know What To Do.

Posted by Aaron Walker on Mar 1, 2021 9:00:00 AM

So, what do you do when you're stuck? Get people around you, ask plenty of questions, set your pride and ego aside, and go out there and live the life that you've wanted to live. So, if you're stuck today get those people around you. Change that mindset and be willing to not compare yourself to other people.
