Your TEST can become your TESTIMONY! In this interview, I sat down with Darryl Strawberry, one of the greatest baseball players of all time. However, we spend most of our time talking about FAITH. Darryl Strawberry is a world-class 8-time MLB All-Star, secured 4 World Series championships and was named rookie of the year during his 17 years in the league! But even with these great accolades, Darryl was fighting for something much more valuable; his life. This isn’t your regular baseball glory interview. In fact, we don’t talk much about baseball at all in this episode. This is the story of how God’s grace can work miracles in your life as we journey down Darryl’s path to redemption. Although Darryl was a beast on the field, his demons off the field often overshadowed even his greatest sports accolades. With ongoing suspensions from the MLB for substance abuse, dealing with the loss of his mother, and literally fighting for his life, Darryl was able to find salvation through the grace of God. In this interview we’re revealing it all; his childhood, the impact his alcoholic father, and how has the world at his fingertips was a catalyst to a life of addiction. I ask extremely vulnerable questions and he answers so profoundly and with all honesty. We reveal his path to recovery and how to give yourself the one thing most of us need more of in our lives; forgiveness. Darryl is not only a living MIRACLE but a living TESTIMONY. If you are in the trenches now, just getting out, or used to be there...this podcast is for YOU! If you for someone you love has struggled or continues to struggle with substance abuse, this is the EXACT sign you need to listen to this podcast. I promise it will change you. There’s a light about this man, he walks with the Holy Spirit, and I can’t wait for you guys to watch this because it’s not only eye-opening but heart-opening.
The Liberal Perspective with Austan Goolsbee
Let’s address the ELEPHANT in the room! The response to part 1 of this mini-series where I interviewed Donald Trump’s former advisor Stephen Moore was HUGE!!! We held NOTHING back as we challenged one another to find the TRUTH. Now, I am incredibly excited to share with you PART 2, The Liberal Perspective with Former President Barack Obama's economic advisor, Austan Goolsbee! This mini-series is all about THE FACTS and the HARD TRUTHS that often get skewed and filtered by biased media stations and one-sided conversations. It’s our civic duty to VOTE but we must first be well-informed before we can do so with clarity and confidence. That’s EXACTLY why I created this mini-series… because you DESERVE the unfiltered truths straight from the mouths of the ones closest to the action! Austan Goolsbee formerly served as the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers and was a member of the cabinet of President Barack Obama. This great American economist is currently the Robert P. Gwinn Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. As I warned you in part 1, we don’t agree with each other on everything... but I'm holding NOTHING back as we challenge one another to find the TRUTH. MY JOB IN BOTH INTERVIEWS IS TO ASK HARD QUESTIONS! I’M NOT POLITICAL. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I encourage you to keep your blinders off so that you can hear out BOTH sides to make an optimal decision. In this interview, the facts and truths uncovered from part 1 will be challenged, dissected and new truths and facts uncovered. We talk about everything from the economy and the realities of a looming recession to Obamacare, medicare, and how those are shaping the future of our country. Austan even shares his disappointment of missed opportunities during Obama’s presidential term. Also, what was it like to be w the President on a historic evening he was elected. I share these with you guys NOT because I have an agenda, but because I genuinely care about you, your families and this country. I learned so much in both of these interviews and I want YOU to be fully equipped so that you can VOTE based on the FACTS and make the BEST decision not just for you, but for your family and for the United States.
The Conservative Perspective with Stephen Moore
GET INSIDE the MIND of Donald Trump’s economic advisor! In this TWO part mini-series, I am going to be sitting down with 2 of the top PRESIDENTIAL ADVISORS from each side of the political spectrum. You're going to hear The Conservative Perspective AND The Liberal Perspective on today's economy. Too often we put blinders on and don't ever hear the story from the other side of the room. We watch only our favorite new stations, get fed social media content that the algorithm knows we want to see, and the truth becomes a one-sided conversation. This is EXACTLY why I wanted to make this two-part series for you all to receive as much unfiltered information straight from the mouths of the ones closest to the action, without the news or social media skewing the data with biases. My first guest, Stephen Moore, was an advisor to President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and a former member of The Wall Street Journal editorial board. Stephen was nominated by Trump to become a governor of the Federal Reserve and is also a former FOX News and CNN commentator. I have to be honest with you, we don’t agree with each other on everything...But I'm holding NOTHING back as we challenge one another to find the TRUTH. MY JOB IN BOTH INTERVIEWS IS TO ASK HARD QUESTIONS! IM NOT POLITICAL, I HAVE NO AGENDA. I ASK DIFFICULT QUESTIONS ABOUT TRUMP (and his philosophies )AND NEXT WEEK I DO THE SAME WITH OBAMA! We talk about everything MAJOR from the state of the US Economy, unemployment, inflation, and interest rates, to Trump's greatest accolades, and who he REALLY is behind closed doors. Next week I'll be releasing the 2nd part of this 2-part mini-series; The Liberal Perspective, with a very special guest! I want YOU to be fully equipped so that you can VOTE based on the FACTS and make the BEST decision not just for you, but for your family and for the United States.
X-Factor for Success in 2020
The environMENTAL part of winning is just as important as the MENTAL aspect of achievement! I get asked all the time how I went from no running water to living oceanfront, and I want to share something that I haven’t talked much about. It is one of the MOST IMPORTANT keys to my success... ENVIRONMENT! We often think that the environment is just location but it’s much more than that. It’s the people you surround yourself with and whom you become while you’re in proximity to them. Your environment is either helping you grow, or it’s keeping you from leveling up. In this video, I talk about the SPECIFIC things you should be aware of regarding your PROXIMITY, your TRIGGERS, the ENERGY you surround yourself with, and your STANDARDS. Proverbs 27:17 scripture says “IRON sharpens IRON” This is because the people closest to us dictate who we become. None of us were BORN doubting, fearful, insecure, worried, nor depressed. We were born in God’s vision to do something SPECIAL. So what changed? Our ENVIRONMENT. Some of you may have all the pieces together. You’re working hard. You’re doing all the right things, but you aren’t LEVELING UP. The last part could be because you’re ENVIRONMENT is only sustainable to an OLD version of you. This video is a MUST SEE to people of all ages and paths in life. - I share what KIND of people you should have closest in proximity and HOW to find them. - The QUESTIONS you need to be asking yourself about who these people are and how they support you. - What TRIGGERS to look out for. - How LOVING someone and BELIEVING in someone can be different. - What are your STANDARDS when you are around these people. -What kind of ENERGY is being given and received. -How YOU can show up in order to become the person you are aspiring to be in proximity with. Evaluating these things in your environment is one of the most, if not THE most important task to support your mental game. You forget who you are when you surround yourself with people that don’t support the GREATEST version of you. Your environment should ignite your PURPOSE, PASSION, and your CALLING in this life, it’s up to YOU to create it.
