Ep.157 | 5 Minute Drill | Take More Strength and Power Into Tough Situations

When you’re in challenging situations, how often do your gifts and skills get pushed to the back only for your fears to take front and center?

For most humans, this is all too common…it’s simply how our brains are wired.

But what if you were able to more consistently tap into your strengths when things around you are getting hot?

How much better would your decisions and results be?

In today’s 5 Minute Drill, I talk about the shift we all need to make more often before we enter challenging or tough situations. 

It’s a subtle shift – but it’s the difference between staying distracted and reaching your ultimate destination.

If you want to enter tough situations with more focus, power, and confidence, then make sure to lock in to today’s Drill.


[00:01 – 07:11] Opening Segment

  • J.R. shares a story about the wisdom he received from listening to a sermon by Pastor Steven Furtick

[07:12 – 09:28] What’s The Drill?

STEP 1: Think about situations or circumstances that come up frequently for you, and when they come up, they normally cause stress or anxiety for you…they cause you to put most, if not all, of your focus on them. Dump all of these out on a list.

STEP 2: Next to each of these, match a key strength or two of yours that you’re committing to shift your focus to WHEN these situations or circumstances come up.

BONUS: Review 1 or 2 daily and visualize you shifting your focus to your strengths you listed out.
