Continuing to Grow Episode 65


Growth, this is number five in our series on The Six Basic Human Needs

We have all been in a place where we want to quit, but growing is vital in order to avoid the risk of failing to keep “Surging Forward”.

We have all heard and even the Bible states to be content.  But being content does not mean becoming stagnant.  Growth or continuing to improve yourself also does not mean having to be better than everyone else.  Around the world many say we are different, but in many ways we are very much the same.  We all have a desire to grow.  But sometimes we don’t know how to grow or we are fearful of the unknown.  Sometimes we don’t know who to trust.  Trust is a big factor in growth, but we all fear getting hurt or burned by someone we care about.  That goes back to the “Love Connection”.  But we need to make a choice to grow. 

If we don’t make a choice to grow, we can become like standing water.  Standing water becomes stagnant.  It starts to smell.  Mosquito larvae and bad stuff begin to breed. This can happen to us.  If we don’t grow, we start becoming resentful to those around us when they are doing well.  We start becoming angry and jealous of their success.  Rivers become fresh as they flow; they filter out all the bad stuff.  “Life Happens”.   Bad stuff happens in life.  But growth gets us out of the stagnant waters; it acts like a filter. 

We can break out of the stagnant water by listening to positive messages on Podcasts and by teaching someone else how to listen to a positive message.  As we listen we grow and move forward. We start becoming a river that is happy for other’s success.   As we grow, life has value again and we want to help others grow.  Sometimes it takes time, but continuing to grow is vital to avoid the risk of failing to keep “Surging Forward”.

The Love Connection Episode 64


The Love Connection, this is number four in our series on the Six Basic Human Needs

Remember the song, “What’s Love Got to do With It.  Loves got everything to do with it.  We all have this deep down desire to be loved, but many people go out looking for love just like another song says “… In All the Wrong Places”.  They have that roaming eye, that desire to be with someone when they don’t even know who they are.  That one night stand, satisfaction for about 10 – 15 minutes and then it wears off and they feel that sense of loneliness and the pain that it didn’t work out again.

In scripture Jesus states that the greatest commandment is to love.  Not talking about a sexual or romantic love, but the true deep love.  But before you can be loved and cared for, you have to put yourself out there and be vulnerable.  It is called the “Servant Attitude” of taking that first step.  When you do for other people, they will be thankful and have a sense of love or being cared for.  It starts from you.  We need to do for others like we want them to do for us.  If you want them to care about you and love you, then you need to start loving other people and doing for them.  It is a choice. 

We can’t always be on the receiving end of things.   Podcast Episode 29 spoke about whether you are a taker or a giver; which one are you?  You can listen to this episode by clicking here  If you are always on the taking side then you are not going to feel that sense of love that you are looking for.  True love comes with caring for someone else.  When you care for someone then they in turn will love you back.  We need to make a choice.  In order to be loved we need to choose to love first.  People who are truly successful in life are the ones that have learned to put others first.  They take time to make others feel cared for and feel special and then they in turn feel love and are able to keep “Surging Forward” in life.

The Need to Feel Important Episode 63


Significance – “The Need to Feel Important” this is number three in our series on the Six Basic Human Needs. 

If we search deep down in our hearts, we all have the need to feel important.    We are not talking about being the President of the United States or a famous football player or the lead speaker at an event.  But just in our family, around friends, at work or wherever, we want to feel important. 

When we are constantly comparing ourselves to someone else we start failing, because we are trying to live someone else’s life.  We need to find our special gift.  Find out what you enjoy doing and bring others along.

Often you hear people saying “I deserve” or “I need a raise” or “I have to have more money”.  It is not the responsibility of someone else to take care of your needs.  It is up to you to make “choices”.  If someone else is making choices for you then you are not going to feel significant.  We need to make our own decisions.  If we want a raise because we don’t have enough money, then we need to make a choice; first, to stop spending.  Then second, we need to make a choice to increase our skill level.  There are many on-line classes available where you can learn at your own pace, on your own time.  With these classes you can increase your knowledge and skill level.  As you increase your knowledge, you become more valuable.  Others will see and soon you will receive a raise or even a new job offer.  When you start making good choices then you feel significant.

Another part of significance is having others around us; not being that “lone wolf”.  As we focus on what we would like to achieve, find out what we are good at, and make good choices, we make a difference in other’s lives.  Making a difference gives us a sense of importance.  All of us are important.  All of us were put on this Earth to make a difference and to help others keep “Surging Forward”.

Changing the Mundane Episode 62


Variety – “Changing the Mundane” this is number two in our series on the Six Basic Human Needs. 

We need to have variety in our lives.  We don’t want to just keep doing the same thing over and over.  If we just keep doing the same thing everyday, day in and day out this can lead to being stuck in a rut and feeling like you are not making a difference with people.  Without variety you can get burned out.  It can lead to lead to drinking or even taking drugs to try to escape.

We need to have some kind of variety in our lives, something to break up the mundane.  Most of us work a five day work week, but we need sometime, evenings or better yet set aside one day a week to do something that is not work.  Go on a vacation and enjoy yourself.  We may think that we are too busy providing for our families to take some time off, but you need a break to re-energize yourself.  Need to find some quality time to spend with family and friends so that your world is not all just about work.  No matter your age we all need to have some variety to add spice and adventure in our life to keep us “Surging Forward”. 

Last week’s podcast was on Certainty and Comfort where we saw that there are no absolutes so we need to make right choices.

Join me next week as we discuss number three in our series – “Significance”
