You Must Take This To Heart

You Must Take This To Heart

It’s been a blessing to walk with you over the last few weeks as we’ve talked about restoring our total man. I hope you’ve enjoyed the previous posts on the spirit and the soul. Today, I want to wrap up the series by talking about the body. We all know we should eat right, exercise, etc., but today I want to talk about the importance of a specific part of your body that needs to be healthy… The Bible says in Proverbs 4:23 – Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it…(NIV) Obviously, the writer was using the heart as an illustration of the soul. But, wait a minute…not that I am trying to re-arrange scripture, but what if I was to say it like this… Above all else, guard your heart, for A HEALTHY BODY flows from it… The condition of your heart is critical to living the extraordinary life. In a purely natural sense, the state of your heart will determine the state of your overall health. We live in a time when the leading causes of death in the United States are not from environmental factors, accidents, or sickness. The sad reality is that most Americans experience, what could be, preventable deaths. Reports indicate that at least 26% of all deaths in the United States are from some form of heart disease. That is greater than one out of every four. We would never allow anyone to harm us or threaten our lives, yet we are willingly doing damage to ourselves through the decisions we continue to make. Heart disease doesn’t...
Become All That God Has Destined You To Be

Become All That God Has Destined You To Be

I am blessed to have the opportunity each and every week to bring powerhouse guests to you through my television program! I believe 1onONE is a divinely inspired platform God has given me to empower and strengthen the Body of Christ to become all that God has destined us to be. I also believe the broadcast is a vessel to get God-inspired principles to the masses, and reach the teenager, the CEO and everyone in between. Why do I believe this is so important? Because, I know with all of my heart that God does not want any of us living short of who we are called to be or having all that we are supposed to have. That is what I call the extraordinary life. Anyone can live ordinary these days…living in financial lack, having health problems or not having peace in your soul is ordinary. But, if you are reading this post, that is NOT the life God has for you. Trust me, I know what it’s like to live ORDINARY; experiencing what everyone else is going through. But, one day I grew beyond frustrated, being sick, not having God’s best, struggling each and every day, and questioning what my purpose in life was. It was in this dark season that I experienced what can only be described as a God moment. I began to realize that no matter how much I exercised, no matter how much I prayed, how much money I made, or how much I tried to not get upset, I would never experience the great life I so desperately wanted. God began to show...
Are You Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?

Are You Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?

There are times in everyone’s life where stress and pressure seem to be overwhelming. When you’re hard pressed on every side, between work, bills, health issues, and relationship problems, it may seem like there’s no way to improve your circumstances. All of this stress leaves us feeling sick and tired! I’ve had the honor to host one of my dearest friends in ministry, Dr. Derek Grier, in the 1onONE studio. Today, I want to share with you one of his teaching sermons that has profoundly impacted my life, and I know it will touch yours, too. This life changing message will reach you when you’re at the end of your rope and you just can’t take it anymore. When you’re at that critical point, Dr. Grier will show you how to LET GO and grab on to God’s lifeline! So many of us feel the pressure to work our circumstances out on our own. The idea of letting go can seem like a terrifying choice. And then, when our ego gets in the way, we often can’t or won’t let go and let God be God. All of this leaves us feeling anxious, fearful, stressed, and can even make us physically sick. But the good news is it’s not our job to figure it out! It’s our job to trust God, and humble ourselves before Him. When we give our cares to Him, we get to watch Him work it out! Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you....
You’re Just 21 Days From Total Restoration!

You’re Just 21 Days From Total Restoration!

Did you know that God’s purpose, plan, and will for your life doesn’t start with a great dream or great effort on your part? It simply starts with right thinking; a mindset that lines up with God’s way of thinking. His plan is for you to operate in the fullness of His goodness. Nothing missing, nothing lacking, nothing broken. Just as God is a triune God — existing in three aspects: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — you were created and designed in His likeness and image; a triune being. That means, like God, you exist in three aspects — spirit, soul, and body. You are spirit. You possess a soul. You live within a body. All three aspects of your being are meant to flow in harmony with each other, and with our Creator. God wants you to live an abundant, extraordinary life. To do so, you have to be aware of and tend to all three parts of your triune being. I’ve spent my career bringing solutions to people’s lives. Whether it’s introducing you to guests on my show, or what I do for other faith-based leaders, I have the ability to see a problem and find the solution! Through my experiences, I’ve found one issue that’s usually the root cause of trouble in life, and that is being out of alignment! What do I mean? If you were to go to the chiropractor and complain of pain in your arm, your back, or your leg, the first thing they would check is your alignment! They would begin to fix your pain by getting you back in...
Discover Your Greatest Self

Discover Your Greatest Self

Do you want more from life? Are you ready to become all God destined you to be, and achieve your personal greatness? Did you know you have personal greatness? Well, you do! Discover Your Greatest Self, let me show you… Recently, I had the pleasure of being joined in the 1onONE studio by Dr. Ruben West, a dynamic speaker, success trainer, and author. He even brought a friend with him to the 1onONE stage — world-renowned motivational speaker, Les Brown! Ruben’s written an incredible book, called Destination Mastery: 7 Steps to an Extraordinary Life. You are stronger, wiser, and more capable than you may think. Sometimes, all you need is a guide to help you reach new heights. And that is exactly what this book will do for you! Now, Destination Mastery is no basic “self-help” book. It’s a road map for you on your way to lifelong change, filled with methods and techniques you’ll need to turn your life around and be extraordinary. Here’s the thing: Your mental mindset will defend how you see yourself, regardless if your perception of self is good or bad; right or wrong. Remember, you can’t see the picture when you are in the frame! In order to experience true change, you have to change your thinking. When you learn how to think differently, regardless of what may happen to you along the way, you will win! Take Ruben himself, for example. During our interview, he shared that it took him 10 years to become successful in his medical career. Ten years! He dedicated a decade to achieving his dream, and it paid off. Why?...
Change Your Thinking… Change Yourself!

Change Your Thinking… Change Yourself!

Let me ask you something…. Did you start this new year by making resolutions? With the start of each new year, around one in three Americans resolve to better themselves in some way. A much smaller percentage of people actually make good on those resolutions. Maybe you resolved to lose weight, eat better, or exercise more. By the time you’re reading this, you’ve probably already failed at your resolutions. What do I mean by that? I mean that you failed because you were destined to fail. You’re wasting your time by making New Years resolutions, because they aren’t a successful mechanism for change. They’re unspecific, they’re unrealistic, and they imply that change occurs only within a finite period of time. And here’s the worst part! After a while, failing at your resolutions again and again will make you lose faith in your ability to change. If you’ve resolved every year for the past three years to be healthier and failed, what makes you think you’ll be different this year? Don’t be discouraged. Now that you’ve failed, I’m here to help you win! True change; real, lasting change isn’t wrapped up inside of a resolution.  They decide how they want to be, and work towards that goal! They keep working, despite the setbacks, despite the struggle, and despite the frustration that will inevitably pop up along the way to self-improvement. On my show, you’ve seen first-hand my relationships with powerful, successful people. I’ve had the privilege of working alongside innovators, health experts, titans of faith and so many more, and they all share one common trait. They’re world changers because...
