LIFE business- The power of mentoring

5 11 2011

Through the thinking and experience of Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady, the LIFE business will provide not only an avenue of wealth, but an amazing center for mentoring/life coaching.

On my way home tonight my car started acting up.  A little chugging and a little sputtering with increased shaking as speeds increased.  And as expected, I received the good old ‘service engine soon’ light.

This light appeared bright and continuous.  It beckoned me to pull over and check the engine.  Multiple things could be wrong and likely more things are worsening as the drive continues.  What do most people do?  ‘If it is still driving, let’s at least get home.’  ‘Please don’t die now’ – and continue to drive. ‘It’s probably nothing’.  Once we get home, the key is turned off and the light goes off. The next comment out of our mouth is, ‘I will deal with it tomorrow’.  For some this saga continues till the car is being towed behind a tow truck heading to the junk yard or to the repair shop for a total overhaul. 

How similar do things in our life happen as we are just cruising through life.  All of our 8 F’s (Faith, Family, Friends, Finances, Fun, Following, Freedom, Fitness) appear to be good then something happens.  We start chugging along in life.  Our marriage starts to go flat.  Our finances seems to be running on empty. Our fitness needs a big change and maybe even a new filter.  Fun? What is that?  And so on, probably 80 more Fs we could talk about!  Unlike a car, we don’t notice our ‘service engine soon’ light.  When that little light starts glowing bright, it becomes very evident to get some repairs for our vehicle.  Would it not be nice to have these with our life?!

We do!  But we must allow someone else to see it and help us with the repair.  The true power of mentoring or Life coaching has two sides: a hungry student and an integrity-filled mentor.  This mentor is not an advisor (all theory), but someone whom has been through the minefield of life and helps through experience.  I have been able to see this and experience this coaching through the men of Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, and Bill Lewis.  These are men that are bent on giving themselves a ‘check-up from the neck up’ and helping ours through grace and love to do the same thing.  Through the recent launch of LIFE, they can now take that heart-felt coaching mainstream!  Anyone can grab ahold of CD’s and books and be part of an association that will help identify our ‘engine’ problem.  Then like a repair manual, give us insight on the how to change.

Now as the service engine light comes on, use the power of LIFE with Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady to get the tune up.

God bless,  Aron

This sure is the truth. We all have blind spots and need to give someone else permission to help us with them. Thanks for the blog.
