On this episode of The Wednesday Call podcast, Paul Roberts stepped in as guest host while Andy Albright was out of the country in Africa. Roberts, who lives in Argyle, Texas, was joined by his good friends – Phil Hebert and George Andershock.
Paul’s main topic for the show was Grace and Gratitude. Those two things are what Paul says have changed his life and his business with The Alliance in the last seven years.
Andershock shared some of his story that brought him to The Alliance, and talked about why he has gratitude for people and for the life he enjoys now.
Hebert told the audience about his own personal struggles to make it as a single father. At one point, he was in line for a promotion, but turned it down because it would mean moving his son to another part of the country.
Roberts shared his personal story of battling alcohol and having to fight to make it financially. Now, he’s in a much better place and will make more money this year than he ever has in his life.
Paul made it clear that words matter more than people realize and you have to be careful about what you say to people. Choose your words carefully. Grace and gratitude should help determine how you spend your time and how you deal with people. Exercise more patience with people and show empathy and love instead of giving up on them so easily. Some people take more time to figure it out. Help them.
Roberts encouraged people not to be scared and to realize that you are stronger than you think you are. You can step it up a notch. You have to stop doubting yourself. Don’t think you’ve arrived. Remember you are on a journey and you are not even close to the end. You are capable of so much more. It’s OK to celebrate the little victories, but remember there is a bigger one coming down the road. The journey is worth it. Keep pushing to see how much you can do rather than trying to reach a set destination.
