JumpStart - Jerry Z.

In my bestselling book Happy This Year, I tell the story of my neighbor Jerry who was one of the happiest people I’ve ever met.Back then I was in ministerial school and we were barely scraping by, so I was trying my best to maintain our 100+ year-old home.One day I was trying to re-roof our porch (something I’d never done before) when Jerry and his son slowly edged me off the roof and onto the ground while they expertly completed the job.Typical Jerry -- spending every waking moment doing for others.Today, let’s talk about how focusing on other people’s needs rather than our own makes us happier, less stressed, and decreases both worry and anxiety in our lives.Today, let me nudge you up on the roof so you can help someone else get off.*** Resources *** 1-to-1 Life Coaching: www.ComplaintFreeCoaching.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Self-Made

As I write these JumpStarts each day, I find myself often either consciously or unconsciously plagiarizing my great mentor Earl Nightingale and the good news for you is that today is just such a day.More than fifty years ago, Nightingale said, “We are all self-made; but only the successful will admit it.”Wow! Talk about a strong point made in just a few words!When we succeed -- it’s all us, right? Whereas, when we fail we’ve got myriad excuses as to why it wasn’t our fault.Napoleon quipped, “Circumstances? I make circumstances!”If you want to be a success at anything, it starts with taking 100% responsibility for your life and your circumstances starting now.If you’ve got the courage, let’s dive deep into what it takes to jump off the blame train and start blazing a trail to the life you want to live.*** Resources *** 1-to-1 Life Coaching: www.ComplaintFreeCoaching.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Safe Mental Passage

Last week, a good friend of mine was telling me about an incident he’d experienced the day before.My friend's company had raised nearly $100,000 for victims of the pandemic and had purchased three containers full of fresh food for anyone who needed help.My buddy volunteered to help hand out the food and as he began to pile bags of supplies into his fellow Kansas Citians’ cars and trucks he noticed something.What he witnessed upset him deeply such that he felt the need to process it with me days later.Discover the negative reaction my friend had and how you can apply what he learned about himself in that moment to your own life.As a result, bringing you greater happiness and less emotional discord in everyday life.*** Resources *** 1-to-1 Life Coaching: www.ComplaintFreeCoaching.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Creativity

Sometimes the hardest part in any creative process is knowing when you’re complete...finished...done...concluded…(LOL - you get the point).Mike Gnagi, a regular attendee for these JumpStarts LIVE, painted the image you see in this thumbnail and I think it’s really quite beautiful.More than that, there’s a great story behind the paintings creation which Mike has given me permission to share and which has a lot to say about why the creative process is challenging and unending.Whether you consider yourself a creative person or not, this JumpStart will have a profound impact on how you view your life and your world.*** LINKS ***Members-Only, daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.comWebsite: www.WillBowen.comFacebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowenYouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.comPodcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Upgrade Your Soul

About ten years ago, I realized how often both I and others were using the word “hate.”“Hate” is a strong word and yet we were tossing it about casually saying we hated everything from the weather to ourselves.The word “hate” means “to dislike to the point of taking action against.”So, if you hate something enough to take action then that’s good.But, if you’re just whining as an excuse for actually doing nothing then you're just part of the problem.Entrepreneur, orator, activist, and advisor to several presidents Booker T. Washington famously said, "I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him?" In this JumpStart, learn why the Buddha said that hate is like holding onto a hot coal; it only burns you. *** Resources ***1-to-1 Life Coaching: www.ComplaintFreeCoaching.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.comWebsite: www.WillBowen.comFacebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowenYouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.comPodcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com
