The Journey continues...
(formerly known as the Game Changers Podcast)

I've learned a lot over the years.  I've made mistakes that I didn't think I could recover from.  All of it has humbled me and made me appreciate this journey.

 Life is a journey with problems to solve, choices to make and things to learn.  

I want to share my experiences, wisdom and challenges with you.  

I'm an American griot. I am also internationally known as the Black Man with a Gun (TM).  Thanks for listening, downloading and subscribing to this show.  I'm hoping to entertain, inspire and make you smarter from the things I've done and still trying to do. 

I'm into fishing, motorcycles, cigars, family, music, guitars, guns and typical "man stuff."  If you are, come join me here. 

It's not all old stuff either.  I'm here to learn and grow.

    Do You Need A Reset

    Do You Need A Reset

    Sometimes you wish you could reset our lives like we do video games.  You can’t respawn but you can change your own future by resetting how you think and do things.
    In order to hit the reset button, you have to figure out where you’re at right now and what changes you can make.  
    Of course, not every life is in need of a full reset.  Kenn returns to let you know that resetting a life is not the same as restarting a computer. You can’t just delete past memories, experiences, injuries, or every unenjoyable responsibility in your life. Resetting the direction of one’s life requires more than a few minutes of downtime.

    Everything is Hard before it is Easy

    Everything is Hard before it is Easy

    This is a continuation of the previous episode where we started talking about the importance of goal setting.  You have homework to create a list of goals.  The bigger the better.  Goals for personal achievement, financial, skills, things you wanted, everything.  On this episode we are going to drill down a little.  I am going to share some new terms and ways to think.  We are involved in a process.  This is not a overnight thing.  I am learning with you.  I would like to know what you are working on.  Hit me up at kenn.blanchard@gmail.com

    Intro to Goal Setting

    Intro to Goal Setting

    This week, I am starting a series on Goal Setting.  I think this is so important I am breaking my normal battle rhythm.  I am actually heeding the advice I am giving.  In full disclosure I don’t have it all together.  Something I learned many years ago is when you teach a subject you have to learn more to be able to present it.  I want to tackle this goal setting thing because from what I have learned so far is the reason I am not where I want to be is because I didn’t make, set, work, apply the right kind of goals for me.  I am going to take this opportunity in the chaos of Corona home detention to change this.  Will you join me?
     
    The episodes may be shorter or longer than usual because again, I am breaking format to make this real.  There is an assignment at the end.  Don’t just listen, participate. 
     
     
     
    The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

    Relationships break when both partners don’t want the same things.
    Relationships break when there are underlying hidden issues that sabotage every chance to connect.
    Relationships break when one is not accepting responsibility for their words or actions.
    Relationships break when you’re walking around on eggshells and they find fault with everything you do. 
    Relationships break when there is no trust.
    Relationships break when you look forward to them not being with you.

    Focus on the Win

    With everyone home, the old heads like me are considering buying a gaming systems.  I asked my son for a run down on what the most popular ones are, the benefits to each, the cost, and what games cost. warriorcast.com

    “Danger is real, fear is a choice.” - After Earth 
    Someone I have known for 15 years.  He’s a humble guy, a man of faith, but street hardened. He has been on the “inside,” but turned his life around.  By his own admission he is not a perfect guy but a man of his word.
    He values integrity and thinks we should teach that to our young men.
    He came to my attention from a Facebook post admonishing his peers to think better, do better, charge what they were worth and not settling for crumbs.  To not fight each other.  To not be afraid.
