Success Road

In this episode, I share just a couple things. The first thing is that I am guest posting this week on

Why It’s Time to Hurry Up and Slow Down

We have the tendency to hurry up and rush through everything in life.

I got my driver’s license on my 16th birthday. The examiner gave me a perfect score and called me a defensive driver. I had only been behind the wheel for a month, so I was probably more scared than defensive.

That title, however, was short lived. I got my first car shortly after that – just a little Hyundai Excel. It was not a racecar by far, but I pushed that little thing to the limit on my startups. I would see the light turn green and then floor it! I felt that there was no need wasting time getting up to the speed limit...

Dave Arnold is a return guest on the podcast this week. He was previously in episode #35, in which he talks about his book, "Pilgrims of the Alley."

COVER-Its-PossibleDave Arnold has written another book: "It's Possible: How to Thrive, Not Just Survive."

He shares the story of how he began the journey in his own life that led to this book, starting with a sermon he was preparing: "The Impossible Becoming Possible."

He refers to the story of Hugo Cabret, who was an orphaned boy that lived in a train station in Paris during the early 1930's. He became engaged in rebuilding a automaton. He deduces that the little mechanical man was just waiting to do what he's supposed to do - waiting for his purpose.

Dave also shares what he calls Destiny Deterrents - those things that try to stop us from fulfilling our destiny.

He has a great quote and lesson:

Well it's time to unlearn and relearn what we've learned.

This reminds me of a quote by Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back:

In closing, he shares a little bit about the Levels of Languishing - those things that cause us to lose vigor or strength.

If you purchase the book before February 23, 2014, you can get some free bonuses:
