    R.65. Don’t be a “Should-Head”

    R.65. Don’t be a “Should-Head”

    Have you ever taken the time to notice the difference between when the Holy Ghost talks to you and when Satan talks to you?

    God made everything with just using His words. So the adversary knows that words are a powerful tool to create what we desire or subconsciously create what we don’t desire in our lives and for others and uses words strategically against us to instill doubt in who we are and what we are capable of which make us feel all the negative things.

    "Things get difficult for all of us but the people who turn back, approach the endeavor with an attitude that is usually along the lines of:


    “I'm not sure about this yet” 
    “I'm not sure this is the right job”
    “I’m not sure that they are the right person” 
    “I’m not sure I have the right skills” 
    “I'm not sure this is the right time” 
    Because of that doubt they plague themselves with the question, “Should I?”
    Should I keep going”
    Should I try to make this work?
    Should I look at something else?
    Should I leave this position?
    Should I get a new job?"

    "They run around asking, Should should should should should, so much that they turn into what I like to call “a should head.” LOL RIGHT? I have totally been a should head and I can see this more when he puts it that way." - RORY VADENWW

    He then says “There will never be the perfect situation to get us to where we need to get us to where we want to go. 

    Elder Holland says, “Troubles we all have, but the "germ" of discouragement, to use Fitzgerald's word, is not in the trouble, it is in us. Or to be more precise, I believe it is in Satan, the Prince of Darkness, the Father of Lies. And he would have it be in us. It's frequently a small germ, hardly worth going to the Health Center for, but it will work and it will grow and it will spread. In fact it can become almost a habit, a way of living and thinking, and there the greatest damage is done. Then it takes an increasingly severe toll on our spirit, for it erodes the deepest religious commitments we can make-those of faith, and hope, and charity. We turn inward and look downward, and these greatest of Christlike virtues are damaged or at very least impaired.” - Elder Holland - BYU Speeches March 1980

    Bro Vaden then says that “we don’t realize that by having the neutral attitude of “im not sure” we’re continually giving up on ourselves.”

    Um…yeah that’s not cool, Satan is convincing me to give up on myself? Snap!!

    C.R.U.S.H. Framework

    Each episode (episode numbers) will focus on one or a couple of the principles found in my C.R.U.S.H. Framework. The framework is designed to set you up perfectly to CRUSH satan's head and accelerate our healing because we are discovering and using our gifts in this organized way.

    R = Remember to Recite - We need to remember who we are and affirmations or truth statements help us to remember and can be replaced with work.

    H.64. Wrestling Could Be Idleness

    H.64. Wrestling Could Be Idleness

    Have you ever watched a real wrestling match? What do you notice?

    I needed to get off my high horse or let go of my pride, of holding onto being a victim, so that I could come down and place my hurt and my worry and my sorrows at my Savior’s feet. I was holding on so tightly because it had been a part of me so long, that I didn’t know how to pry it out of my fingers. This was my wrestle before the Lord, before I decided to allow Him to heal all of me.

    What Satan doesn’t tell us is that as we work with the Lord to do hard things (laying our hurt and our hangups at His feet), He helps us with our anxiety and our emotions or where we are “weaker,” to make them stronger. Satan doesn’t want us to have a relationship with the Savior, because once you know His light and love and strength, he knows you won’t go back. We will rely on the Savior even more.

    So let’s humble ourselves get off our high horses, pray and wrestle so hard like Enos did and then get to work like Noah so we can build that gigantic impossible ark like thing that the Lord has asked of us, because deep down we know that will bring us the most satisfaction and joy like we haven’t felt in like a million years and will take us to our promised land. 

    C.R.U.S.H. Framework

    H = Hasten to Heed. Hasten to heed the Lord's promptings, just do it because we will be blessed for it and our healing can reach new levels as we are partnering with Christ to do those things that are hard and that we have felt we need to do. If you feel something is missing, Heeding could be the answer.

    Who else had the Book of Mormon Seminary CDs when they first came out?! Enos's wrestle before the Lord is something I will always remember and I realize I do this too.

    The H = Hasten to Heed the Lord's promptings. I know first hand how hard it can be to heed promptings after betrayal or after D day because the pain can feel so crushing and debilitating sometimes, but heeding promptings is not for others benefits it's for our own. It builds confidence in ourselves as we do those things the Lord prompts us to do for ourselves or for others, because in the process we learn more about who we are and what we are capable of.

    S.61. Get Data, Build Confidence!

    S.61. Get Data, Build Confidence!

    Dale Carinegie who wrote How to Win Friends and Influence People said, “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer your fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

    Yearly Habit Trackers

    If we get discouraged, and we will, remember what President Monson said, “When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates” (#GeneralConference Oct. 1970)

    Make a chart, or use a calendar to mark off your progress and keep it, so that the next time the adversary wants to tell you how bad you are at keeping goals you can have some ammo to fight back or shield off those lies with your practice DATA. You can prove to yourself that you know how to keep goals even if they aren't perfect because we are making progress.

    “You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.” - James Clear the author of Atomic Habits.  

    Setup some systems and practice those small things in order to have great things happen in your life. 

    What does the "S" Mean?

    S = Sharpen the Sword. This means practice, practice, practice, using those weapons in our safe circles of people, but it might still require getting a bit vulnerable and outside of our comfort zones but this is where we can strengthen those relationships with the ones we already love in safe and lasting ways while still getting our practice in and building the data we need.

    H.60. Prove it to yourself! [Behind the Scenes]

    H.60. Prove it to yourself! [Behind the Scenes]

    Find out how I plan and record the episodes. 

    Some Gems: 

    One of my mentors Seth Godin says:

    "Sometimes, we mistakenly believe that we're building something that takes time, but what we're actually doing is hiding. We stall and digress and cause distractions, not because the work needs us to, but because we're afraid to ship.” (and of course he says "we" cause distractions but we know who the culprit is distracting us ALL THE TIME. Not us.)

    So we just need to ship it!

    Bro Brad Wilcox so eloquently puts it:

    “We don't pray because we're worthy. We pray because we need help. We don't go to the temple because we've made it, but because God is making us better there. We are not earning a treasure in heaven, but learning to treasure heavenly things.”

    We don't have to prove anything to the Lord, He knows us and our capacities, we are the ones that need to learn and remember who we are and what we are capable of. So just go and do it, so you'll know that you can do it too.

Genuine, Validating, & Inspiring

I met Linda through a virtual women’s support group we were both attending almost 3 years ago. I immediately gravitated to her comments and approach to what she was proactively choosing for her life. Those few months that I got to be in the same group with her was a blessing and since then she has continued to be apart of my team, —validating, encouraging and inspiring me through her words. I was so happy when I heard she is going to be sharing with the world who she is and how she’s gotten there. Each podcast I listen to reminds me how much I LOVE Linda and am so grateful for her! 👊💪🙌🙏🏻💖
