Author and speaker Bill Farrel joins the program with guest host Bill Arnold to talk about the ten best decisions a man can make in his life.
“We have this big life in front of us, but we don’t know how to to do it and we get overwhelmed. And we either go passive or we get angry with the people around us. We don’t like being told we can’t, and we don’t like feeling isolated.”
Bill walks through several important steps in a man’s life:
1. Decide to be decisive.
“Most of us make decisions accidentally. There has to be a better way to make decisions!”
2. Decide to seek an adventure.
“The normal way God works in a man’s life is He calls us to something bigger than ourselves. Because we tend to be strong, we’ll tend to do things on our own until we have to rely on God… What happens to men when they don’t have a big enough idea is they get bored or angry. Doing something bigger than yourself creates a natural humility.”
3. Decide to be competitive.
“There’s an appropriate way to be competitive in life that is part of being a man. We’re competing in this world for the health of our families and the hearts of men and women and the truth being upheld in our world.”
4. Decide to set goals.
5. Decide to be busy.
6. Decide to be better.
Bill leaves us with these words.
“I try to teach my boys that life takes tenacity; you’re going to face challenges along the way. The games that are easy you forget quickly – the games where you had to stretch and work – you never forget those moments.”
