SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
Seth Godin stretches my mind. I've read several of his books and each one of them challenged me to believe that I have more to share with the world. On this show whether it’s a toxic work culture or stagnation in your craft, Godin urges us all to recapture the child-like delight in taking a risk.
“You may know how to use fancy design tools, but if there isn’t that leap that leads to connection, it doesn’t matter….you’re not making art,” says Godin. “We didn’t build stuff because we need more beautifully laid out menus. We did it because people want to be touched, noticed, and connected.”
On making a ruckus in your industry
Bring forward a new idea or technology that disrupts and demands a response
Change pricing dramatically
Redefine a service as a product (or vice versa)
Organize the disorganized, connect the disconnected
Alter the speed to market radically
Change the infrastructure, the rules or the flow of information
Give away what used to be expensive and charge for something else
Cater to the weird, bypassing the masses
Take the lead on ethics
(Or you could just wait for someone to tell you what they want you to do)

James Richards of Intergreet shares his life lessons.
James was a successful businessman in New Zealand – built a large corporation with branches in several countries. We were listed on the Stock Exchange. Then on Black Friday, October 1987 my life changed forever. I went from extreme wealth to being broke in a matter of days.
We decided to start over again in USA, so together with my wife and three sons we headed to California to build an even greater business empire. But God had other plans for us. The incredible experience of being wealthy and suddenly becoming poor, forced me to ask myself this question, “Is life only about making money and owning many possessions?” When my mind started to open to other possibilities, God started speaking to me and I responded by becoming a follower of Jesus Christ. That was when my real life began.
The Church I joined recognized my leadership experience and fast-tracked me to ordination within my denomination, the Reformed Church in America. I felt led to start planting new churches in South Asia in Muslim countries – we now have 16 congregations. It has been both very difficult and fruitful. Too many Christians had only a cursory knowledge of the scriptures so we decided to present the Bible in short, easy to understand segments that could be viewed on a Smart Phone, Tablet or TV. So we launched the 10 Minute Bible program. This is a ten minute long video teaching of the Bible.

Coach Dru Joyce. Joyce coached, mentored and served as a father figure to LeBron James and remains one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in America. He's also a follower of Christ and author of a new book, 'Beyond Championships: A Playbook for Winning at Life'
** MENTORSHIP, STEWARDSHIP, SERVANT-HEARTEDNESS: LeBron James, one of the wealthiest and most popular athletes on earth, says ‘the principle that Coach Dru instilled in me that has probably impacted me the most is to always have the heart of a servant.’ How important was that lesson for a boy that would grow to have what LeBron would have -- an empire --in terms of influence and money and power?
** HUMILITY: For Coach Joyce, losing in the Ohio state finals as a 1st year coach, with LeBron James, the nation's #1 ranked team and as the subject of a Sports Illustrated cover story (LeBron and the team at St. Vincent St. Mary) provided a lesson in humility. Particularly when the newspapers placed the loss on his shoulders. Great lesson in dealing with disappointment and expectations, harsh words from others.
** GOD HAS A PLAN: Coach Joyce had never coached a basketball game in his life, but at the age of 42, left a decades-old position at ConAgra with a great deal of security to do what he felt called to do. It wasn't easy and it took faith in the Lord and the courage to move, cooperate with His plan. Courage to leave security behind. So, for people who feel stuck -- this story is an encouraging one. Over the course of the last decade, he's proven to be one of the most successful high school coached in America.
