Hello! Welcome to The Determined People Podcast, hosted by John Harrell, bestselling author, inspirational speaker, blogger and now podcaster.The Determined People Podcast is a two-pronged approach to podcasting. Every day I will offer a short, 1-2 minute inspirational message designed to start your day the right way. It’s not rah-rah stuff or fluff. The messages are designed to make you think, to inspire you, and to sustain you as you face the unknown challenges of the day. Weekly I will interview real people with honest, relatable stories. People who are willing to share their experience, strength and hope from their own life’s difficulties. When you listen to their stories, it is my hope you think, if they made it, so can I. Our world needs hope, and everyone I meet has a story. All of us have faced difficulties. In fact, we are facing one now…the global pandemic which has compromised our lives, our mental health and has impacted all of us uniquely. By sharing our stories, we connect at the heart level. We are unguarded. And through podcasting, these stories are available whenever you need them. So let’s get started.
Everyone is seeking something.
No One Is A Victim
People blame others for their lack of success or opportunity. This is a lie that is advanced by the media, and exploited by the politicians. No one is a victim. I am not denying that bad things happen to people. Those are usually out of our control. But you can make it if you shake of the victimhood mindset and start moving forward.
Interview With Lori Anderson
Every 13 seconds in America there is a divorce. In the time it takes for a couple to recite their wedding vows, there have been nine divorces. Something isn't working because the divorce rate rises for second and third marriages, reaching as high as 82%!
Lori Anderson married her high school sweetheart. Divorce never entered her mind...until she got a divorce. In 2013, Lori wrote her first book, "Divorce with Grace. A Book of Hope & Healing." In the book, Lori gets deeply personal, sharing her story of heartbreak, confusion and pain. Throughout the book, Lori gives the reader steps to take in their lives to heal and eventually...thrive after divorce.
Every day, we have a choice of which direction we wish to take in our lives. Are we going the right way?
God didn't create us to forget about us. Everyone matters to God. Be brave and be strong. Stand up for what's right. Let your voice be heard.
Transformation occurs when we are ready and willing to change. Don't try to force an outcome.
