Attacking Goliath — Overcoming

14 12 2011

Bill Lewis recently published an incredible blog on facing one’s goliaths.

I would impress upon each one of you to take the time to read his blog.  I have been eye-witness to the characteristic of overcoming by Bill.  A lot of individuals in today’s world of ‘experts’ have great advice on how to make changes in your life, but there are few men who talk through action and mentor from experience.  The LIFE business that Bill co-founded has a stated purpose to change lives through information and association in the 8F’s (faith, family, finances, freedom, following, friends, fitness, and fun).  Change is only temporary if there is no paradigm shift as Stephen Covey states. Leaders like Bill make their life, a pursuit of their obstacles.  Chase them down and destroy them for those that follow.

The point I want to make is this.   Are you attacking the goliath’s in your life or are you cowering on the sidelines.  I am experienced on both sides.  It is not easy to face the goliath’s that we have in our lives but it is necessary for growth.  In leadership and life you are getting ripe or you are going rotten.  The second you stop facing goliath’s and growing from the experience you are beginning to rot.  It is even more of a tragedy if you have a mentor that can help you defeat goliath but you still choose to run circles.— Bill Lewis

Mark Batterson stated that we are imprisoned by what we know.  This profound statement is true for all people.  What we don’t know and what we do know keeps us put.  And ‘put’ is on our backside wishing there was another way.  As Bill stated, the rocks were right in front of David and likely all answers are just before us. Most answers are found through the use of faith.  Some come as new experiences but most come through the courage to ask someone who has gone through the minefield 1st.  “Faith is unlearning the senseless worries and misguided beliefs that keep us captive” states Batterson.  Take the time to find a mentor in life. The benefits are far-reaching and life changing.  Then as we fight our ‘goliaths’, we have a wing-man to endure the fight.  Discover those goliaths and hunt them down!  Happy hunting!

I would also recommend you grab ahold of and listen to the audio CD’s “Facing your Goliath” and “Developing your David” by Orrin Woodward

God bless, Aron

Steel the mind and Tender the heart.

Great stuff Aron. I’m loving all the blogs from the Policy Council and the Round Table as well. It’s another way to learn from top leaders to help with our own journey.

What a blessing it is to have rascal leaders like Aron Radosa & Bill Lewis to be mentors to those of us who choose to fight our Goliath.
Thanks Aron,

Good point from Covey about change not being lasting unless there is a pardigm shift. We are what we think.

I’m glad that when my Goliath calls, I have the ability and know how to get with my mentor.
