Peace in volatile markets. With the stock market falling and life investments failing (Bill Gates lost $3.2 Billion on Monday alone!), peace can still be found.

The stock market is a metaphor for everyday life, of sorts. Ever had a life experience where the “bottom falls out”? Ever thought life should be going one direction and it shoots in another? With every twist, turn and disappointment, peace can reign. How?

First, there are no failures in life, only lessons to learn. When Edison was asked how he handled thousands of failures before discovering electricity, he replied, “I never failed, but I learned thousands of ways that didn’t work”. 

If we have the mindset of “learning” from each of our endeavors – there are no failures. We can rest and have peace with that! Count it a joy to learn from each experience, use what you’ve learned on the next and watch life flourish!

Next, know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all things will work together for your good. Reminds me of the song, “Thank God for unanswered prayers”. Many times what we think is best for us, isn’t. In fact, some of the most grueling times in my life have worked more for my good than some of the greatest successes in my life.

When I try and push things, they seldom work. When I give up control and live in the present with an attitude of thankfulness, everything seems to work. Embrace and appreciate all life experiences, learn the lessons and allow an inexplicable peace to saturate every part of your life…

Good or bad, a snapshot in time should not de-fine us, but re-fine us. If we experience a “good” event like winning an award, closing a big deal or anything else that brings “positive” recognition, we should learn from that event and use what we’ve learned in our next endeavor. By contrast, if we experience a “bad” event like loosing money, a failed relationship, or anything else that brings “negative” recognition, we should also learn from that event and use what we’ve learned in our next endeavor. So, if we can use and grow from what we’ve learned from any event or experience in our life, who’s to label either “good” or “bad”? What if the things we learn from so called “bad” events actually help more as we progress through life than the “good” ones? How many people have won the lottery, only to lose all of their friends and file for bankruptcy within a few years following this “good” event? How many people have experienced a devastating loss or a “bad” event that served as the catalyst to nudged them in a direction that they never would have gone otherwise, and experienced success and fulfillment like never before because of it? Use all events in life to learn from and allow them to re-fine you, but never de-fine you. All things will work together for our good…

Throughout difficult times, it’s more important to appreciate what is, in lieu of worrying about what is not. A heart of gratitude and thanksgiving will ultimately place you in a state of mind to receive. Once in that state, your own situation will surely change. Make a list now of the top ten things you’re thankful for… then say those things out-loud each morning when you wake up. Over the course of the next 30 days, keep track of what’s changed… you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Welcome to the summer issue of your newsletter. Great changes are currently taking place all around the world, from the white house to your house!  Some resist change and some embrace it -there are unique consequences to each.  How do you deal with change?  It could make a difference! Please enjoy your newsletter and remember, if you like it, please pass it on!

Change for the Sake of Change
Have you ever said to yourself, I just need a change?  Maybe you’re stuck in a rut, simply bored with life or just turned 50, but something is drawing you to make change just for the sake of change.  Please be careful with this type of change and think of the consequences.  Many people have ruined 20-year-long relationships seeking change.  Others have walked the “wild side” only to return with experiences they would gladly forget or rewind if they could.  If seeking a thrill, gather with a few friends and simply talk about it – chances are, they are too.  This will bring balance to your decisions, while still getting it out of your system!

Emergency Change
This is what many call life or death situations.  Some outside force or event occurs and if you don’t change, you have a high probability of total failure or even death!  A banker calls your real estate note and you have no place to go.  You are diagnosed with a disease that gives you a 50-50 chance of survival.  In any case, when an emergency change enters your life, do not overreact.  Stay calm and know that there is a way out and you will survive!  Expect the best and work towards a solution where you will be victorious and not the victim.  So many just take what life has to offer without considering any alternative.  Remember, alternatives are as numerous as your imagination.  Think outside the box and begin to imagine the best outcome to your situation and then take action steps to make it a reality!  You are much stronger than you think, I promise.

Controlled Change
When controlled change occurs, it is usually a product of much thought and planning.  This may be a well thought out job change, birth of a child or marriage.  You have imagined, carefully planned and then taken steps to implement.  Most prefer this type of change because it offers a sense of control.  But please remember, that even in a controlled environment, things can get out of control.  Just like the pilot who is never really 100% on course after taking off, but must constantly adjust until he reaches his destination, we too should adjust and adapt until we reach ours.  The more you can adjust to seemingly uncontrollable situations, the more peace and clarity of thought you will have to make it to your destination.

Uncontrolled Change
An act of God is probably the best example of uncontrolled change.  This type of change happens and there is no possible way to control it.  A tornado, hurricane or an earthquake occurs and there is no way out. These are the cases when your natural instincts take over and come to your rescue.  I’m sure you’ve heard of the lady who discovered her child was trapped under a car and then lifted the car by herself to free her child.  Or, the fireman who weighing only 150 pounds carried a man nearly twice his size over 100 yards to safety.  Just knowing you have this natural instinct should free you from the panic that usually accompanies uncontrolled change.  When you’re panic free, you have even greater energy and focus to beat most any uncontrolled change you may encounter.

From a Biblical Perspective
Change has occurred since the beginning of time.  No matter what your belief system of the creation of the world, I think we can all agree that massive change has occurred over time, right? In fact, if change is not occurring, it usually means death.  The Bible says that a child of God can have peace in the midst of a storm, a peace that passes all human understanding in the very midst of an event that seams out of control –How?  Because we have the creator of the universe living inside of us – leading, guiding and teaching us in all things.  With that, we can rest assure that all things are in fact under control, even if they appear otherwise. All things will work together for our good.  I’ve been through various experiences that no matter how hard I tried; I could never see how they would ever benefit me.  But, after enough time passed, each experience was in fact of ultimate benefit. I bet if you think about it, you’ve also had experiences that seemed chaotic in the moment, but later you learned and grew from them.  So, we know change will happen and no matter what change occurs, we’ll either learn from it or grow through it.  As we recognize that He is in control of every situation, we can yield to His direction and have the peace that passes all human understanding in the midst of any type of change.

Welcome to the Christmas issue of your newsletter. This, for many, is the perfect time of year to reflect on the past, ponder the present and forecast the future.

Have you ever eaten something and said, “that was good, but it seemed to be missing something?” Have you ever reflected on the year and said, “that was good, but it seemed to be missing something?” Remember, it’s all in the seasoning! I hope you enjoy this issue and as always, if you like it, please pass it on.

Bland Is Not Better
SpicesHave you ever heard that variety is the spice of life? If you think about it for a moment, the best way to get out of a rut is to “spice it up a little” or do something different, something out of the norm. Relationships, occupations, exercise programs and even dinner will become very bland and even boring if you allow it. Nothing is worse than experiencing the same old thing the same old way, day in and day out, wouldn’t you agree?

Shake Things Up
Now, before you jump to conclusions, let me make one thing clear. When it comes to relationships, “shaking things up” does not mean finding someone else! There, I said it. To shake things up in a relationship may mean doing something different, anything! Go to a different restaurant, visit a different city or simply eat your dessert before the main course. Anything, just so it’s different. This thought process will work in your occupation, exercise programs and, yes, even dinner.

Psychologically Speaking
Yes, there’s even a silver lining to all of this. Psychologists say that when you do something new and different, it “wakes up” other parts of your brain and promotes creativity. Even the brain surgeon who (with all respect) does the same old thing, day in and day out, needs to “shake things up” to wake things up! If the surgeon begins playing video games or working crossword puzzles, something out of the norm, other areas of the brain will begin firing currents that spark creativity in all other areas. This activity will even help brain surgeons become better brain surgeons.

The old saying “use it or lose it” is so true in so many ways. What are some areas of your life you could shake up and wake up to experience a whole new passion? Relationships, occupations, exercise programs, dinner and anything else you can think of!

From A Biblical Perspective
The Word of God calls us the salt of the earth. Matthew 5:13-14 reads, “You a
re the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.”

SaltWhat does it mean to be the salt of the earth? Allow me to offer this: it means we are supposed to add flavor, spice and seasoning to the world. Just as salt adds flavor to whatever it comes in contact with, we are to add flavoring to every situation we encounter. We are the “reasoning for His seasoning,” to add spice to this world. We are a light that can not and should not be hidden!

What a fantastic week! Claud Bowers interviewed me on his flagship program on SuperChannel 55 in Orlando on Thursday, Nov. 29th, just one day after my mother’s birthday – Happy birthday, Mom!

Steve StrangThe next day we had lunch with Steve Strang and heard of all the wonderful things happening at Strang Communications. Steve is well known for Charisma and New Man magazines.

Mike HuckabeeHe shared some wonderful things with me about Mike Huckabee and his political agenda. This guy is really worth considering in the presidential elections!

Then the following day, we traveled to Fort Lauderdale and saw first hand the great Christmas Pageant held at First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale. This was much more than I ever expected! I saw why this play has already won SIX EMMYS and has gained international recognition. The U.S. Navy just ordered 250 copies for their troops. At intermission we were able to spend time with Pastor Larry Thompson, the senior pastor now in his 28th year at the church with 14,000 members representing over 70 nations, and I was asked to speak there in July 2008. What an honor!

My wife Laurie and I then traveled to the Tampa area and did another TV show with Herman and Sharron of CTN. They were fantastic hosts and our taping went even better than expected. They even talked my wife into being on air – a real miracle! The show will air nation-wide on December 19, 2007. When the show was over, we headed back to Tulsa just in time for our coaches training session. I’ll talk more about that in my next blog update!

Dinner with Friends at the Hall of Fame


I was honored to sit at the head table with my mentor Paul J. Meyer and his wife Jane, along with Charley “Tremendous” Jones and his wife, LuAn Mitchell Halter and of course my lovely wife Laurie! Zig Ziglar and Pat Summerall were inducted into the Roaring Lambs Hall of Fame in front of some of the great legends of our time. Gary Kinder, Roaring Lambs president, hosted and did a great job! The following morning we all met at the Prestonwood Country Club for a great breakfast and time of fellowship. Charley “T” Jones spoke for a short while and then introduced Paul J. Meyer, who delivered a fantastic keynote! I could literally listen to him for hours! After the meeting, we all headed back to the Fairmont in Downtown Dallas for one last meeting before heading back to Tulsa. A great time with great Friends!
