    Episode 18: Working (Seasons & Shifts)

    Episode 18: Working (Seasons & Shifts)

    Being in a season of working is similar to being in a zone. It’s a time when God is ready to put us to work. You could have just shifted out of a season of wondering and in that time you gained clarity on what actions you needed to take next. Or you could have just shifted out of a season of waiting and you got the green light to move on a plan or decision. It’s the time when you shift and actively work toward the things that were revealed to you in previous seasons. This is the season where you function in obedience and maximize your excellence.

    Episode 17: Waiting (Seasons & Shifts)

    Episode 17: Waiting (Seasons & Shifts)

    In seasons and shifts of life, there is a pattern to waiting effectively. But sometimes waiting can feel unbearable. Do you find it difficult to wait? Do you think God should be moving in ways other than how you see it happening at the moment? Are you in a season of waiting right now? How does it feel? Is it a peaceful, productive wait or is it a stressful, worry-filled wait? What have you learned about yourself in the moments where God doesn’t move exactly when you think he should?

    Episode 16: Wondering (Seasons & Shifts)

    Episode 16: Wondering (Seasons & Shifts)

    Our minds are in a state of constant wonder and we just don’t know what will be the result of a moment or a series of moments - what they are leading to, where they are directing us from or how they will unfold. In season two, this series of episodes entitled Seasons & Shifts, we'll dive in to topics that help us expect the extraordinary in new seasons and pursue excellence in the midst of a shift. If you are wondering about the next season or the shift it might bring, how are you managing this period of the unknown while wondering what’s next or what’s ahead?

    Episode 15: Racism & Injustice

    Episode 15: Racism & Injustice

    It’s hard to pursue excellence when you’re suffering from hate-filled racism fueled by anger and fear. It’s hard to feel like royalty when you're treated like a wild animal hunted as prey. It’s hard to believe that you are a king or a queen with your suffering due to the color of your skin. From one lifetime to the next. Generation to generation. Decade after decade. What should we say to black people right now? What should we expect from white allies? What about other people of color? How can we rise from pain and despair to empowerment and excellence in the face of racism and injustice?

    Episode 14: Procrastination

    Episode 14: Procrastination

    Delay. Putting it off. Pushing it back. That assignment. That task. That thing. I’ll do it tomorrow. We appropriate many things for ‘tomorrow’ when, in fact, we don’t know the first thing about tomorrow. Truth is tomorrow is never for certain so being satisfied with how you left today is the other thing you can truly measure. Excellence is where your worth becomes who you are. It's not about proving yourself every single time instead it's about putting your best effort ahead of yourself every time. But what happens when procrastination gets the best of you? It does get the best of us from time to time. Whether it's doing laundry, making a phone call, writing a report, paying a bill - we are all prone to procrastination at some points. It's a tug of war between the rational and the emotional - what I’d like to be doing versus what I should be doing. So how do we keep procrastination from hindering our excellence?

Just what I was looking for

I was seeking a God-centered podcast that would pour into my spirit and re-focus my thoughts. I stumbled on this channel and the episode about “Waiting” was divine and just what I needed to hear in this season of my life. Highly recommend this podcast if you want to hear fruitful, empowering messages of growth and excellence. Thank you Dr. Aerial for being a vessel of God.

Self-sabatoge

It’s been a trying few months. From tornadoes to COVID-19 to protests, I’ve been flooded with emotions. Thanks for the reminders that:

*God still has great plans for me even though the atmosphere seems to be swallowing my thoughts.

*I must reset my thoughts to prevent self-sabotage.

*I am able.

In peace,

I Can't begin how to express what this has done for my life

Dr. Aerial ! You are God sent! I can't begin how to express what this has done for my life. I just came across this podcast last month and decided to start from the bottom and work my way up. This morning, I listened to Episode 6 right after journaling and praying about a difficult situation/person and the words were so timly and resonated in my spirit on how I should strategtically respond. I'm on the verge of tears writing this review, but I thank you! I don't know if I could have received this message in any other way.
