    On This Day in History... (Monday Moment)

    To ensure the content we share with our Live Inspired community is timely and relevant, I meet with my team monthly to plan future social posts, newsletters, and podcast episodes.  As we meet and discuss, our goal is always to provide inspirational and engaging content to help you navigate your months, one day at a time.
    These meetings can be fun as we think of stories around big holidays, special birthdays, or celebratory anniversaries.
    And yet, taking time to remember the anniversaries we’d rather erase from our collective consciousness is equally crucial, especially this month.  Let me explain.

    Sliding Into Home! (Monday Moment)

    Have you ever noticed that the best moments in life are frequently unplanned and completely unscripted?  It’s not the big trip, fancy dinner, or lavish party that are most meaningful, but the little moments in life that we don’t see coming. One such moment for me was the highlight of the entire filming process for the On Fire movie.  Let me explain.

    Three Tips to Live an Uninspired Life (Monday Moment)

    Three Tips to Live an Uninspired Life (Monday Moment)

    For more than two decades, I’ve written, shared and spoken about the joy of living a radically inspired life. And I’ve shared stories of people who are On Fire For Good, who want their lives to matter, their families to thrive and their communities to prosper.
    Recently, though, I realized I’ve been neglecting a far larger audience.  We’ve created far too few resources for my friends on the opposite end of the spectrum. We’ve ignored the friends who have decided that an inspired life just isn’t for them. The individuals seeking a monotonous, humdrum, uninspired life.
    Choosing to ignore them no longer, I’ve assembled a list of tips to ensure they are liberated to follow their dreams of living the uninspired life they desire. Join me as I share my three best tips to help those interested in achieving uninspired living.

Life Is Short, I Am Not ,

In Awe & On Fire 🔥 - thank YOU

John, I work remotely and my job that is very cerebral and “on”. During the day, I listen to your podcasts throughout the day. It keeps me soul connected. You keep my vibe charged with your humor, humility & raw zest for life (and what you overcome). I wear my John O’Leary I Love You and there is nothing you can do about it Tshirt weekly and get stopped by people—I remember that is what your dad told you right after the accident and it grounds me. Simply wearing my tshirt makes my day. I read both books On Fire and Awe, & heard you on Ed Mylett and more. I love being a part of it and am spreading the word to my womens worship group. I shared some cards from my “deck of your cards” and handed them out. Amazing podcast your energy, honesty & engagement is unlike others. One day when I meet you, I am giving you the biggest hug. I loved your standing ovation for Beth and the don’t miss it snippets too. I truly believe our Tribe we hang with keeps our Vibe and you are a great part of that. I APPRECIATE YOU thanks for showing up and pouring your heart ❤️ into it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
