What Beliefs Are You Choosing?

Dealing with negative beliefs is something everyone struggles with at some point or another. And for some of us, it’s a regular struggle. Negative beliefs keep us from growing because before we even try something, we’ve already talked ourselves out of it. Believing that we can’t is what keeps us from moving forward and reaching our potential.

The Law of the Mirror

Do you believe in yourself? It can be easy to pour into others with compassion, encouragement, and support. But do you do that for yourself? Do you speak to yourself in the same manner that you speak to others when they need someone rooting for them?

Growing Into Consistency

Have you ever had a clear picture of a goal, but lacked the motivation to keep working toward it? Chances are, I know your answer to that question. Motivation is sometimes a fleeting feeling that tends to show up when it wants to, but it won’t be something you feel every day. Then there are days when we really just don’t want to push forward, but we do it anyway. That’s discipline.

The Average of the Five Around You

You’ve probably heard this phrase before: “You are the average of the five people you surround yourself with the most.” (Often attributed to Jim Rohn.) Your environment plays a big role in who you become in life. And a key part of your environment is who you surround yourself with.

The Law of the Rubber Band

Growth is often uncomfortable. I love reading personal and professional growth books, and one that we talk about a lot at Built on Purpose is John Maxwell’s The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. In his book, Maxwell provides a helpful analogy of growth via a rubber band. He points out that similar to a rubber band, we need to stretch to grow.

What's in a Miracle Morning?

I've had many flavors of a morning routine over time. Some routines I've enjoyed and valued more than others. But for a year or so, I've felt dissatisfied with my mornings. Recently, though, The Miracle Morning has revitalized my routine.

Stop Trying to Find Time

Time isn't something you can find. Yet, we often convince ourselves that we can't do certain things because we can't "find" the time. Have you ever said this to yourself or someone else?

You Never Know

Have you ever been meeting, collaborating, or chatting with someone who seemed a little “off” from their norm? If you work with the same people regularly, you know what I mean. Sometimes you can just tell when they aren’t “themselves” in some way.

Consuming and Doing

I’m a big fan of learn­ing. I’m also a big fan of watch­ing oth­ers learn. It brings me a lot of joy. In fact, the importance of learn­ing runs through this com­pa­ny in the form of one of our Core Values, "Learn out loud."

Ditching Assumed Constraints

When I was around fif­teen I start­ed learn­ing to play the gui­tar. I was quick­ly addict­ed to the six-stringed muse. Mak­ing music was already part of my life, and fam­i­ly, so the quick­ly devel­oped addic­tion to play­ing was no surprise.

The Fallacy of Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Bal­ance. It’s an often mys­ti­cal tar­get for many. The idea most peo­ple have is that of a two-sided scale. The weight of one side must equal the weight of the oth­er side to achieve ​“bal­ance” prop­er­ly. In the­o­ry that would mean you per­fect­ly bal­ance ​“work” and ​“life” over­all. This is the Bal­ance Equation.
