WHO you become is more important than WHAT you achieve. Becoming > Achieving. The reason I started this podcast is because I believe that our society is primed and ready to dive deeply into the issues related to Character. People are realizing that Character Matters. Here are the reasons Character will be an incredibly important topic in the years to come. 1. You want to be a better you. 2. You don't want to be like "them". 3. You want to be a person that can be happy with yourself and the outcomes of your life. 4. You want to influence others to be better. 5. You truly want to make the world a better place and you realize that begins with a better you. This podcast has been created to focus on the topic of personal character development. It is my intention to provide great, relevant content on the topic of character development and to suggest tools and resources that will further enhance your striving to become who you have the potential to become. It is my hope that as we journey together that I can help you understand how the world really works and how you relate to it, relate to yourself, relate to others and relate to God as well.Yes, there is a faith based element to my podcast but my intention is to never be preachy but to simply use all of the "best" resources to explain, illustrate and apply universal PRINCIPLES so that you can live life abundantly. My hope is that by being engaged with this podcast you will be able to make the changes in your life you want to make, improve the areas you want to improve, become the person you want to become and create the future that you want to create. Who can benefit from this podcast? People who want to begin their personal growth journey. People who want to improve their mindset and attitude. People who lead others. People who want to get the most out of life. People who want to add value to others. People who want to be better at what they do. People who want to change or improve improve their lives.

    The Moral Foundation for Strong Character pt 2

    In this episode I continue to explore how the Ten Commandments, one of the world's longest standing social contracts, is still relevant today and why we should continue to explore the implications on culture and society if we eliminate them from our national and personal consciousness.

    The Moral Foundation for Strong Character PT 1

    The Moral Foundation for Strong Character PT 1

    In this episode you'll discover what is required to have a moral foundation for strong character. Morals are deeply rooted in religion and influenced by philosophy. Essentially, morals are personal values, but as we will see these values cannot be subjective from one individual to the next. As you'll hear there needs to be some kind of universal moral honor code that at the very least sets the lowest limits of acceptable behavior. I suggest that if you start anywhere you might ought to consider the 10 Commandments, especially since morals are influenced by both religion and philosophy. It seems like a very basic place to start building a foundation. I think you'll appreciate looking at the 10 Commandments in the way that I have communicated them in this episode. In the episode I'll cover the first 5 of the 10 commandments. So dust off those bibles and get ready to check the quality of your moral foundation.

    Inside-Out: Where does the change the world needs actually begin?

    Inside-Out: Where does the change the world needs actually begin?

    Maybe Stephen Covey had the right idea when he stated, "Most of the great cultural shifts – ones that have built great organizations [and might I add nations and societies] that sustain long-term growth, prosperity and contribution to the world – started with the choice of one person. Regardless of the person’s position, these people first changed themselves from the inside out."

    In this episode I ask some tough questions about our character and what current events reveals about the character of our nation and of our fellow citizens. The reason for the protest is justifiable however the riots, looting, death and destruction of private property should make us reflect on the motives, intents and excuses people make for turning violent and destructive.

    Where does the reform that is needed begin? 

    Right now Character Matters more than one can imagine. It will be the difference between finding and implementing mutually beneficial solutions or alienating one another and things remaining the same.
