True North Podcast was birthed from a very stark reality of watching people "losing their way." Making not-so-good decisions based on principles that were/are not healthy. Watching people destroying their families, their reputation, their careers, and themselves. All in the name of being yourself. A stark reality of watching today's society sink into a deep black hopeless hole. We decided to step up to the plate and do something to help our generation find which way is north to find their way to where they need to be. When you find which way is true north, you can only find your way to where you need to be. Our podcast is about addressing the issues, the tough ones, the ones that can destroy someone. This podcast about sharing the principles, biblical principles that will bring you back to a place you can be clear in your thinking, principles, and a standard of living that will bring honor and blessing to your life and make you happy! The following is our mission statement. Our Mission...Helping people find the True North in their life and relationship with God. Once you find the true way with God, you can get anywhere in life.The Pathway...Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. Psalms 105:109

    Ep. 30 Time To Confront the Beast (Self Identity & The Fallout)

    Ep. 30 Time To Confront the Beast (Self Identity & The Fallout)

    In this episode, we get raw in confronting the beast. We address the question of self-identity and the fallout after an inappropriate expression of negative emotions. You keep saying, "I can't control my emotions!" That is a lie! You can! 

    When you understand the fallout of emotions that follow the inappropriate expression of anger, you will motivate yourself to change. 

    One of the first things we can do to regain positive control is praying. I know that may sound so simple and even a bit lame if you are not a person that follows that path. However, it does help; if you practice daily prayer and put faith in God, things do change. He will help you heal and find your true self-identity. He knows you better than anyone because he designed and formed you,

    Ep. 29 Emotional Outburst & Addictions How do we fix them?

    Ep. 29 Emotional Outburst & Addictions How do we fix them?

    In today's episode, we deal with emotional outbursts and addictions. How do we fix them? Once and for all. 

    If you deal with the symptoms instead of the root problem, you are just asking for future problems. It’s like receiving a shot before a wisdom tooth removal. You don’t feel much at first, although you may drool a while. But when the shot wears off, you need a prescription handy, or you will be in a world of pain.  In my personal experience, it's best to try and find the actual root cause of emotional outbursts instead of treating the obvious superficial symptoms. Can you guess the root problem of addiction? It is a proven fact that the root problem for addiction is anger. Anger is designed to wake you up; It's meant to bring attention to injustice within you and your surroundings. It's designed to grab attention so you can make appropriate changes.

    This is an episode you do not want to miss!

    Ep. 28 Don't Play Games with the Beast (Defuse Negative Emotions)

    Ep. 28 Don't Play Games with the Beast (Defuse Negative Emotions)

    In today's episode, we do a 30 minute deep dive into identifying and defusing negative emotions. We give you a nine stepper in how to accomplish that. 
    Anger is an authoritative energy source. A lot can change for the good if you redirect anger appropriately. At times it's just the loud shouting matches and the exchange of negative statements. Other times it is manifested or unleashed in devastating violence. It can be disastrous. Take a real close look at the damage done to property and relationships, money for the legal fees, retribution, medical bills, damage done to vital human connections, and the time wasted in the confrontations, and it becomes a costly business. Another thought we need to consider is for us to function in a civilized society; it is an absolute necessity for us to control or manage our emotions, especially anger.
    To be very honest, this is extremely important to those closest to us because they always catch our wrath when they don't deserve it. In other words, we still hurt the ones we shouldn't hurt at all.

    So dive in and take notes on this one; it will help you...a lot, I promised!

    Ep. 27 The TMZ of the Beast World (Emotions Unveiled)

    Ep. 27 The TMZ of the Beast World (Emotions Unveiled)

    In today's episode...

    Much like "TMZ" seeks to reveal the dark secrets, wild escapades, and unearthed facts of famous people, I want to rip the veil off anger and emotions. I want you to understand their true nature and why they cannot be trusted. I want you to realize you cannot just set them free and hope for the best.  Just like any wild beast, you must train, control, and guard them at all times.  Why?  Because a wild animal will destroy everything and everyone in its path. Unattended anger and emotions will ruin your relationships, your job, self-worth, dignity, integrity, personal image, and even your soul.  In psychology, emotions define a complex state of feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence thought and behavior. Author David G Meyers says human emotion involves physiological arousal, expressive behaviors, and conscious experience. Emotion can affect us both physiologically (behavior) and psychologically (thought). That is why it is so vital that we learn to be in control.  I want you to understand and get a grip on it for the sake of your future!

    Ep. 26 Mr. Beastie's Game (Blame & Responsibility)

    Ep. 26 Mr. Beastie's Game (Blame & Responsibility)

    In today's episode, we discuss chapter four of our book, Control the Beast, Mr. Beastie's Game. 

    Those of you with siblings or more than one child in the home will relate. If you grew up with multiple children in the house, and one of you did something wrong, it's always the other one's fault! Am I right? I'm sure everyone can remember one of these instances, if not several. When raising our two children, if something went wrong. I would  ask one of them, "Did you do this?" If they said "no," I went to the other child and asked the same question. What do you think was their response? They would say (you guessed it), "No!" It was then I realized it; we surely had a third child in the house somewhere! These are some of the woes of raising children.
    Sadly, people go into adulthood without proper training, never learning to own up to what they have done, and never correcting the bad behavior. The problem at this level is an out-of-control adult who never grows up to take responsibility can reign terror in a home and relationships across the board. 
    As we listen to this podcast, we will learn how to stop playing games with the beast and create a better life and a closer relationship with others and, more so, with God.

    Ep. 25 How The Beast Works (The Mechanics of Emotions)

    Ep. 25 How The Beast Works (The Mechanics of Emotions)

    In another episode of True North, as we explore our new book Control the Beast, we are looking at How the Beast Works, an understanding of the mechanics of emotions. 

    Emotions are a combination of elements going on at the same time. They combine mental, psychic, or physical components. These are controlled by internal mechanisms (physiological), which get the person ready for reactions to threats, better known as the "fight or flight syndrome." 

    So how do we control them? We have to understand behavior modification. Identifying an emotion as positive or negative does not make that emotion right or wrong. It does not make you bad or evil because you have that emotion. You need to learn, identify, and manage it. Emotions tend to balance one another to function in our somewhat civilized society; this is how behavior modification works.

    Dive in and learn how to Control the Beast!
