On today’s show, we will be talking about becoming hungry for a full life, well lived.
When I was growing up, and I know most of you can relate to this, I remember so many occasion when my father or mother would say no to something I wanted in a shop or somewhere I wanted to go, or whatever it was they were saying no to at the time.
I am sure you can probably remember many such occasions from your childhood.
And I remember on many of those occasions thinking, ‘I can’t wait until I am 16 and can leave home and then I can make my own decisions.’ Or ‘I can’t wait until mom gets home. She will say yes.’ Or ‘I can’t wait to have my own money, then I can buy anything I want.’
Later in life, after I had left home and joined the Air Force and of course was now earning my own money, I would think, ‘I can’t wait until I am a corporal, then at least I will earn more and have money to spend.’

I read a quote from an unknown source recently. It said, ‘Face your problems head on and never turn your back on them. Because it isn’t your problems that define you, but how you react to them and recover from them that defines you and makes you who you will become.’
That is powerful stuff if you get it.
You see we all face challenges and have problems. We can’t go through life without them. They are there just as much as oxygen is there. It just is and so are they!
Someone once said problems are like weeds. They grow whether you want them to or not.
However, what we find is so many people run from their problems not realising those problems will always follow them. And as a result never stop running. They run from people they don’t like or people who don’t like them. They run from bad memories or places which bring back memories.
They run from financial issues or relationships.
So you and your past! What does it have to do with your future? Does it influence who you are today? What impact does it have on who you will become tomorrow?
Let me begin this discussion with the following:
You are responsible for your life, your thoughts, your feelings, your actions and for the results you get in your life and in your business. You have the ability to stop and change anything you have control over and are responsible for.

On today’s show, we have our second special guest, Mack Story. This is an interview which was recorded a few weeks ago and we had a great time. I don’t think I laughed so much in a long time.
Mack and his wife Ria live in Atlanta Georgia. He is the author of 11 books and leadership speaker and trainer. His business, Blue Collar Leadership is focused on training leaders in a blue collar environment and he uses his 24 years experience in manufacturing to relate to leaders in that space.

On today’s show, we will be talking about you and how unique you are. We will be looking at how that uniqueness impacts you and the world around you.
So we have all heard that no one has the same fingerprints as anyone else on the planet and that each of us has a completely unique DNA sequence. On its own, these are huge points indicting your individual uniqueness in the world.
