  • The Business Spin: Trust  Enjoy a Rapid Recharge

    The Business Spin: Trust & Enjoy a Rapid Recharge

    10/05/2020 Duration: 38min

    Episode 343 Aired May 6, 2020 Do you remember spinning or being spun by an adult? You know where they would take your hands and turn and you would fly, or feel like you were flying? Did you ever worry that your dad or mom or baby sitter would let go? Did you ever say no because you were worried about feeling like throwing up after? More than likely you answered no to the last two questions. As kids we jump in. We don't worry. We don't stop ourselves from succeeding before we even try. We don't talk ourselves out of something we haven't started because we are afraid of failure. Instead we trust and enjoy the ride. That is the quick topic of tomorrow's rapid recharge. I hope you will join me tomorrow as I announce where I have been being stretched, how anxiety has ridden along, and how I have to trust that God put this on my heart and I need to be obedient in pursuing it. _______________________ Follow DESIGN RECHARGE: Our website: www.rechargingyou.com Find full show notes at: https://rechargingyou.c

  • What Are You Discovering About Yourself

    What Are You Discovering About Yourself

    03/05/2020 Duration: 01h18min

    This Group Chat with Design Recharge Regulars and guest Chris Martin uncovers fears, honest struggles, joyful discoveries and much more. With new situations, come new discoveries. What have you discovered about yourself during the last month? Has what you need changed or what you thought you needed become irrelevant? How has your purpose or direction changed? I opened up the floor and we talked about what have we learned about ourselves, things we need, things we don't during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Self-discovery goes hand-in-hand with being pushed into new situations. Analyzing why we react in certain ways and why somethings bother us and other things don't. How we give grace more easily during uncertain times when people are scared and hurting. But maybe you have had time to contemplate a new direction.

    Episode 334 Aired Tuesday, March 17, 2020 How important are side projects for your creativity? How important are they to your client work?

I believe that having an active side project list is extremely important to growing and getting the types of projects that you want.

Are you sitting on an accidental invention? Do you ever avoid something, that probably should be fun, or at least will get you closer to the life you want to live, but maybe you are like me and AVOIDING it? Can you SEE yourself living your dream life? Aired March 11, 2020 I have a dream of having a small house in the mountains of Colorado. A stream or river is nearby. There are aspen trees all around and I see the backyard, no fences but that is because there is some acreage with it. I can visualize it, but thinking about getting enough money to be able to buy that place is a whole 'nother thing. So I get stuck, I fill my plate. I avoid and then I run out of time to do the "me" work. The future work needed to do so I can live that life. Am I afraid of Failure? Afraid of Success? ______________________ Follow DESIGN REC
