Are you sick of hearing about the “divisive” time we live in? Me too!

Tarek Mounib shares how to foster sincere dialogue and better understand people with viewpoints different than your own. Tarek’ tips were learned on his journey with an unlikely group of US travelers to the Middle East. He captured this experience in his film Free Trip to Egypt to help people see the power sincere listening and simple human connection have in overcoming “divisive” worldviews.

Today's conversation will not only inspire you but give you the tools to become part of the solution.

SHOW NOTES:

  • Tarek is focused on working on meaningful projects that bring people together + influence humanity in a positive way.
  • Tarek's love of arts came from his mom while his love of science + logic came from his dad.
  • At nine years old, a teacher emanated kindness and empathy towards Tarek, leaving a lasting impact on his life.
  • Instead of unity, Tarek believes that September 11 created a false division and was not addressing the true enemy of fear. 
  • His film Free Trip to Egypt was inspired by questioning if there something we can together to impact the world in kindness instead of the negative acts.
  • After announcing the project on the internet, Tarek received unexpected criticism and skepticism. Tarek humanized the conversations when speaking with others respectfully face-to-face.
  • "[Free Trip to Egypt] showed me there are very few bigoted people in America and that's what renewed my faith in humanity."
  • "As long as I am not reacting out of fear, I have access to people"
  • Break down the fear: Tarek hoped to bring people to Egypt that were afraid of Egyptians, Muslims or the Middle East yet were courageous enough to make the step.
  • What will happen when opposites come together? Tarek paired Americans with Egyptians from different backgrounds and watched the dynamics, connections + journeys that unfolded. 
  • "Human connection is more powerful than any difference we might have."
  • A shift in perspective: Each participant had a powerful, transformative change. 
  • #PledgeToListen: A pledge to not demonize anyone who holds certain opinions, views or beliefs, but instead will try to understand their reasons and their arguments and express your own views in return. Take the pledge here.
  • Find a Free Trip to Egypt screening near you, or host one in your community, here.

If you enjoyed hearing how human connection can change the world, you'll love my conversation with Leon Logothetis. Leon travels the world relying solely on the kindness of strangers, which he pays back in unexpected, inspiring ways. Listen to Leon on Live Inspired Podcast ep. 136.

Join me every Monday for a quick burst of inspiration on our “Monday Moments” segments.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ― Leo Buscaglia

Today, I invite you to view others, challenges, and meltdowns through the lens of compassion. When others put their heads down and step away, be encouraged instead to lift yours and step forward. Realize not only the profound magnitude of generosity but the truth that you can be its epicenter.

“There are no quick wins in business or life – it takes years to become an overnight success."

This quote from entrepreneur Richard Branson is a great reminder of the value of hard work and the importance of not comparing ourselves to others’ supposed “overnight” success.

Today’s guest’s story reiterates this truth. Jake McEntire dedicated 14 years to writing his script for Run the Race. He finally saw it become a feature film produced by Tim Tebow earlier this year. Today, Jake joins us to shine a light on how to uncover what we are called to do in life and how to steadfastly pursuit it.

SHOW NOTES:

  • As a child, Jake fell in love with the art of storytelling, inspiring him to move hearts as movies did for his family.
  • All for one, one for all: Jake's father encouraged a close bond between Jake and his five siblings.
  • Growing up in a small, north Texas town allowed Jake to experience a variety of clubs + sports, including football and acting.
  • After tearing his ACL, Jake played Randle in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, inspiring him to focus on acting.
  • Jake taught himself screenwriting, using the scripts from Shawshank Redemption and Sling Blade as guides.
  • Run after God. As long as you have him, you have everything you need not matter what happens to you.  
  • Professional sports star Tim Tebow and his brother Robby Tebow became Executive Producers of Run the Race after reading the script.
  • Run the Race is available on DVD and digital download. Get it here.

7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read?  This guy ran after God + his dreams as hard as he could, and encourage everyone to do the same.

“You may not control all of the events that happened to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou

Today, I share the story of Marguerite Ann Johnson, better known as Maya Angelou. Maya endured horrific adversity as a child before finding her voice which has been heard all over the world.

We have all endured our own challenges and there is no doubt we will face more. When the next challenge arises, remember this: “you may not control all of the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

Today's question was submitted by Live Inspired community member Michael S. 

Michael S. asked: I am struggling to connect with my 16-year-old daughter. Any advice on a good book to read?

Beneath that snarky teenage attitude, remains your little girl, desperately seeking approval, figuring out who she is, what matters to her, how she best fits in and how she can push the boundaries as far as possible. 

Rather than providing a single book, I’d consider checking out any of the following ranging from very conservative to a bit more liberal, and from books for dads to one from a mother’s perspective:

I loved today's conversation.

Joe Koenig, President of World Wide Technology, shares how he grew it from a few million dollars and a couple dozen employees to several billion dollars and 6,000 leaders. Even more impactful, you'll hear the humility behind the mission and the love story of Joe and his wife Kim. They share about a cancer diagnosis, the journey that followed, and a love and faith that continues to guide their way.

Today, hear how they have transcended the big diagnosis and how they're choosing to lead their lives to serve others.

SHOW NOTES:

  • The gift of grit: Kim moved nine times before high school giving her the skills to not feel scared or intimidated walking into new situations later in life.
  • When Joe started at World Wide Technology, a technology solution provider, in 1993 when it was a young, start-up with 15 employees and $8 million in revenue. By 2018, it's grown to over 6,000 employees and over $11 billion in revenue. 
  • THE PATH: The core values at WWT are Trust, Humility, Embrace change, Passion, Attitude, Teamwork, and Honesty.
  • Employees at WWT are empowered to fuel their passions through Day of Caring initiatives and other resources.
  • "Plan + attack" mode: The initial cancer diagnosis required multiple surgeries and the removal of 50-60% of Joe's tongue. After learning it spread to his lymph nodes, Joe required a heavy dose of radiation resulting in a painful path to recovery.
  • Prior to the diagnosis, Kim embarked on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, giving her armor to sustain what was to come.
  • No one fights alone: Building a support system of people that had gone through a similar situation helped guide, push and challenge them.
  • Unconditional love: The process taught them the depth and meaning of their vows and hope it serves their children in their future committed relationships.
  • Joe hopes to show their children how to deal with situations in a positive way, how you can impact others, build empathy + character and how to be a multiplier of love for others.

If today's episode reminded you that the best days remain in front of us, you'll love Live Inspired Podcast guest Michele Cushatt. Michele shares her story of trauma, how hope got her through her struggles and how it will help you through yours on ep. 132.

Kim: Being open-minded.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be?

Keah Brown, the journalist behind the viral #DisabledandCute, exudes pride, confidence, and humor – but that’s not always been the case. 

Through years of introspect, Keah has learned to celebrate her cerebral palsy and strives to bring awareness to the struggles and triumphs of persons with disabilities. Her new book The Pretty One explores her journey to self-love and what it means for you.

Greg Matthews has spent most of his life serving our nation. Looking at any one of his very long list of accomplishments would equate to more significance and impact than many of us could hope to amass in a lifetime. And yet, Greg never felt it was enough. He was incredibly driven… for all the wrong reasons.

Until a gruesome, nearly fatal encounter with a grizzly bear gave him an unexpected encounter with God and an inflection point that completely changed his life.

Greg joins us to share how past hurts can be healed and today can be more impactful and joy-filled than you ever thought possible.

SHOW NOTES:

  • For over 27 years Greg is protecting and serving, currently as Anti-Terrorism Officer for Army Corps of Engineers.
  • Greg recalls a vivid + emotional memory of loading boxes into his father’s car. This shattered his foundation, leading him to believe he was unworthy and unlovable.
  • Greg shares horrific stories from the search of his NYFD Rescue 5 friend Andre Fletcher at Ground Zero after 9/11.
  • Every year, Greg’s dad would take him + his two brothers on a yearly hunting trip, instilling the love of the outdoors in them.
  • September 22, 2015: On a 10-day big game hunt in 14-miles in backcountry Alaska with his brother, Greg was attacked by a 650-pound grizzly bear causing severe trauma + bleeding.
  • Greg credits a multitude of physical and spiritual miracles, including the courage of his brother to confront the bear.
  • “There is purpose, fulfillment, and joy by pressing into your pain.”
  • Get Greg Matthew’s book Wild Awakening: How a Raging Grizzly Healed My Wounded Heart here.
  • Learn more about Greg Matthews on his website Chase What Matters here.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? Jesus Christ to thank him for knitting me together and saving a broken-hearted little boy.

5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Don't sweat the small stuff, and Tim McGraw's song "Live Like You Were Dying."

6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Your father in heaven loves you. Your dad loves you. It’s okay to love Greg. There is stuff that’s loveable within you.

Join me every Monday for a quick burst of inspiration on our “Monday Moments” segments.

Are you wealthy? I asked a friend this question several years ago as we sat in his large, beautiful kitchen surrounded by lavish furnishings. Turns out, he'd over-spent during the good times and was behind on his house payments.

He went on to say, “It’s not our home and it’s just a matter of time before we are asked to leave it. I've got nothing."

After listening, asking a few questions, giving him a hug and telling him I was sorry, it was time to shift gears. I asked him four questions I once used in a leadership discussion about real wealth, true success and proper perspective.

  1. Answer the question: Are you wealthy?
  2. Make a list of everything that truly matters to you.
  3. Circle every item on that list you still have (or could earn, enjoy, experience again).
  4. Finally, answer this question: So, are you wealthy?

We too frequently confuse status or square footage or retirement accounts as wealth. This question doesn’t ignore the benefit of saving for tomorrow or building a substantial nest egg, but it does remind us the real measure of wealth sometimes means realizing how valuable your life remains even if you lost all your money.

My friend, these questions aren’t intended to trivialize the intense struggles that come with financial stress. Far from it! Instead, they are meant to free us to own those struggles and the hope that in spite of the things we’ve lost, so much of what we value remains… And that the best is yet to come.

Are you discontent even though everyone around you thinks you “have it all?”

Lloyd Reeb, founding partner of Halftime Institute, is on a mission to help you ensure your next season in life is defined by joy, impact, and balance.

Today, Lloyd will remind us of the importance of not just doing what is valuable, but doing what is priceless. Regardless of your age or what you can bring to the marketplace, Lloyd will encourage you to get clear, get free and get going.

SHOW NOTES:

  • How can your second-half be even more impactful, fun and joyful than the first half was?
  • At 14-years-old, Lloyd's father helped him purchased a few acres of land, charging interest which taught him values.
  • “What do I need to do to pass down the values of generosity, honesty, and hard work before passing the monies down.”
  • A successful building developer inadvertently taught him the importance of significance beyond success.
  • The exposure to what was happening around the world inspired Lloyd to serve or give back to others.
  • Lloyd was introduced to Bob Buford, author of best-selling book Halftime. Because they naturally bracketed the movement of people wanting to renew themselves at mid-life, they created The Halftime Institute.
  • “Sloppy busy”: Your calendar is full but you have a nagging lack of focus and leverage that you had in your career.
  • Resist the temptation to start working on the solution and take the time to think through your core strengths.
  • Gallup's Strengths Finder 2.0 played an important role in their children being heard. Get a copy or each other's strengths like I did with my family.
  • Halftime is a remedy, not a strategy: Think about who you are and then the work you’ve been given.
  • Don’t just jump in and get “sloppy busy.” Take time to reflect on who you are and the best place you can give back. Ask yourself:
    • When was I at my best?
    • What was the most painful experience in my life and what did I learn from it? Very often our pain from the past calls out a path for our future.
    • Think about who you are and not the work.
  • Valuable vs. priceless: On one side of the paper, write a list of all the valuable things your life. On the other side, write the priceless things. What are you doing to protect the valuable versus priceless things?
  • The Halftime Institute: University for the second half of life, a place where people blessed with success, begin to explore how to make the second half even richer + fulfilling than the first half.
  • Have a healthy mid-life renewal: Get clear, get free, get going.
  • Intentionality: Lloyd strives to help other leaders be more intentional in not only how they give their time away but also building a world-class family. 

If you enjoyed hearing how Lloyd is moving from success to significance, you'll love hearing Live Inspired Podcast guest Jill Blashack Strahan share how she created a successful business during a tragic season in her life on ep. 18. You'll also love hearing Live Inspired Podcast guest + graffiti artist Erik Wahl share how the dot-com bust in 2000 led him to reevaluate his life on ep. 80.

LLOYD REEB'S LIVE INSPIRED 7

1. What is the best book you’ve ever read? The Bible and Ordering Your Private World by Gordon McDonald.

2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Curiosity.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? I have seven “Book of Days”. Every day, I keep an artifact of someone’s life that I’ve affected, touched or helped.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? Historian David McCullough.

5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? My mom taught me it’s better to give than to get.

6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Marry Linda Walker. She's taught me relentless forgiveness.

7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? 100x: I’d like to take what I’ve been given and invest it so it produces 100 times that blessing or impact in other people’s lives.

When I walk on stage to give a keynote, I'm often introduced "expected to die, now teaching others to truly live, John O’Leary.”

  • The world-renowned doctors spent over an hour doing everything medically + scientifically possible to bring him back to life.

  • DeVon Franklin, the producer of Breakthrough, encouraged John to "stay humble and stay hungry."

  • "By the time die, how many people can I influence to take to heaven with me?" - John's pastor Jason Noble inspires him to share his story to inspire others.

More than 1,700 people have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge with the aim of taking their own life. Today's guest is one of the 25 known survivors. 

Kevin Hines suffers from bipolar disorder with psychotic features. At 19, he was suffering silently and it resulted in his attempt to take his own life.

Today, Kevin shares about “brain pain” or mental illness and his story of hope, faith, + thriving in spite of it. One of the most prominent suicide awareness and prevention activists, Kevin’s message of striving to live “mentally well” is an urgent one you must hear.

SHOW NOTES:

  • Kevin has built a close support network called his "personal protectors" aimed to keep him thriving and that will not let him fail or fall alone.
  • Kevin finds to be a privilege to be able to defeat his mental illness, which he refers to as brain pain, daily.
  • "My goal is to go around the world and help other people thrive, just as I am, even inside the pain." - Kevin on the importance of sharing his survival story.
  • September 25, 2000: Kevin took a bus ride to the Golden Gate Bridge with the intention to end his life.
  • After 40 minutes of walking the 1-mile suspension bridge, Kevin made the 4-second, 220 feet leap into the San Francisco Bay, immediately regretting his decision.
  • "We are all in pain. You can let pain defeat you or you can let it build you."
  • Kevin reminds those affected by suicide that they did not die because of you. They died of unrelenting, immeasurable lethal emotion pain that had nothing to do with them.
  • Suicide has a ripple effect:
    • Positive: the ability to reach people of despair and bring them back to safety through hard work
    • Negative: after you lose someone you love, you feel so guilty you attempt or die by your own hands.
  • Move beyond the negative ripple effect:
    • Grieve together without blame or guilt.
    • Bring others together that love that person as much as you do to celebrate them.
    • Talking about the good times gives solace.
  • "We can never move on from suicide. We can move forward through the pain and find hope if we just work hard enough."
  • "Have faith in yourself to augment your destiny. Often times all people need is time to become rational + someone to support them."
  • “I’ve had a major transformation, but it’s ongoing.”

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Live Inspired Podcast guest Dese'Rae Stage created a movement to capture portraits and stories of suicide attempt survivors and in doing so – change the conversation, culture, and resources around suicide prevention, awareness, and support. Listen to ep. 156 here.

KEVIN HINES' LIVE INSPIRED 7

1. What is the best book you’ve ever read? The Rock Says by Dwayne Johnson

2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Expressing my vulnerability more.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? The cross that was gifted to my mother-in-law and then my wife.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? A young Jesus and tell him "thank you".

7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? Kevin Hines suffered the pain. In spite of the pain, despite the pain, to thrive today so he could have the ability to just try to help other people.
