Bob Goff - Transitioning Well
Whether you feel it acutely or not, today marks a new season. As the long, hot summer days wane, and the shorter, crisp days of autumn come upon us, it's a natural moment to pause and pay attention to the transitions of our lives, too.

So, we wanted to put together a special episode this week that can help you take an appropriate pause and reflect on the bigger things that are happening. We're taking a look back, too, as we pull a few excerpts from previous conversations we've had on the podcast.

We'd also like to extend to you a free month of our exclusive Bob Weekly content. All you have to do is click this link and sign up for a month of video teachings and a guided curriculum. 

All my best to you this fall season.

- Bob

The Dream Big Academy

Living a focused, engaged life of love, adventure, and impact shouldn't be a mystery.

It's what we're all wired for, it's what we all long for. But, it's not the norm. From all the places I've traveled to and the people I've met, I know that most people don't experience that kind of life. They feel...

Like they're missing out on a different life, a life that others seem to experience.

That it should've all just worked out by now, but it hasn't.

Frankly, like they're languishing- and this must be as good as it gets. 

But, there's so much more...

That's why we started putting these digital courses together. I can't travel everywhere, and not everyone can travel to me. But, what if there was a way to share life together and walk through these simple ideas I've been learning?

Before, we've released these courses one at a time. Then we'd close the registration. But through the pandemic, we learned that a LOT of people want to keep growing, and they're looking for a framework they can trust. 

So, we put them all together- 6 interactive digital courses. Two specifically designed to help you identify and unleash your big ambitions. One for budding authors. Another for speakers. A course for your family. A course for your career. With more coming in the future.

And, since we already have Bob Weekly as a monthly subscription for exclusive content, we threw that in there, too. 

The Dream Big Academy is the place to go for people wanting to get serious about the shape of their lives. 

I'd love for you to learn more- maybe even watch a short webinar we put together that goes into more detail.

Paul Burns - Driven by Identity Not Circumstances

Paul Burns - Driven by Identity Not Circumstances
It's easy to get distracted by our circumstances- whether it's how our body feels, an urgent problem to solve at work, a house filled with noisy kids, or the latest news headline. Our distractions are just that- distractions from what's most important. 

So what does it look like to navigate through those distractions? We can't control the world around us, but we can develop habits that help us stay focused and centered. 

There aren't many people I've run across who do better at living a focused, centered life than my friend, Paul Burns. 

Paul Burns is a believer, builder, maker, dreamer, husband, father and also happens to be a senior executive at Twitter. At Twitter, Paul helps brands, businesses and people see the power of conversation to change the world. Paul believes that when we begin to have more open, healthy and loving conversations (especially about the things we disagree on), we are one step closer to looking more like Jesus. When he's not at Twitter, Paul helps lead a non-profit organization called Matthew House where he helps inspire hope, restore dignity and empower independence for refugees around the world (matthewhouse.ca). Paul lives in Toronto with his wife Olivia and two boys Anderson & Wesley and can be found on Twitter and Instagram @paulburns

Sheila Walsh - Choosing Authenticity

Sheila Walsh - Choosing Authenticity
We all want to be known- it's a deep need inside of everyone. We want to have people in our lives we can count on to hold onto us even when we lose it a little. But, that gets tricky. 

On one hand, we don't want to be a bummer to our friends. We don't want to weigh them down. On the other hand, we want to be people others can count on. We want to build ideas, companies, and lives that are strong and put together. But, when life gets too much, or when we experience loss or trauma, the worst thing possible is to realize you're on your own. 

Maybe you're going through something difficult right now. Or, perhaps you have something painful that you've been holding onto. If you don't, you certainly will in the future- there's no escaping hardship, pain, or loss no matter what path you're on. So, what will it look like to build the type of authentic connections you really need?

I'm so glad we could have my friend, Sheila Walsh, on the podcast to help us navigate these big ideas. 

??Sheila Walsh grew up in Scotland and has spoken to over six million women around the world. Her passion is being a Bible teacher, making God's Word practical, and sharing her own story of how God met her when she was at her lowest point and lifted her up again. Sheila loves writing, has sold almost six million books and is a national bestselling author. She is also the cohost of the television program Life Today, airing in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia, with almost one billion potential viewers daily. Calling Texas home, Sheila lives in Dallas with her husband, Barry; her son, Christian; and two little dogs, Tink and Maggie, who rule the roost.

Richard Rohr - Finding & Living From the Center

Richard Rohr - Finding & Living From the Center
In our busy, frenetic world, it's easy to slip into a mode of living that looks and feels a lot like autopilot. We go through the motions, move through our calendars, and rinse and repeat each day. In so many ways the life we long for and the life we're designed for remains out of our grasp. 

So, for so many people, we try to shake things up. We sign up for a sprint triathlon. We announce to our friends we're launching a podcast. We start planning a vacation or a bathroom remodel. For a time, it works. We feel more present, alive, and focused. 

But then the autopilot mode returns. 

What does it look like to find an alternative reality? To lean into a different way of thinking, and a new way of living? I can't think of anyone who can help us find that way better than Father Richard Rohr.

Father Richard Rohr is a Franciscan friar and ecumenical teacher who bears witness to the deep wisdom of Christian mysticism and traditions of action and contemplation.?He is the founder of the?Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC)?and academic Dean of the Living School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he has lived since 1986. For over fifty years, Father Richard's personal experience of God's infinite and transforming love has inspired his lifelong work of helping to remove the barriers that keep people from knowing God's love for themselves. He teaches how God's grace guides us to our birthright as beings made of Divine Love. He is the author of numerous books, including?The Universal Christ, The Wisdom Pattern, Everything Belongs, and?Falling Upward.

READ: Universal Christ, by Richard Rohr

Resource page: http://universalchrist.org

Book URL: https://store.cac.org/collections/all/products/the-universal-christ

Description: In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus's last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious debate, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center.

Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God's constant, unfolding work in the world. "God loves things by becoming them," he writes, and Jesus's life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God-except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator's presence all around us, and in everyone we meet.

Thought-provoking, practical, and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is.

Taylor Hughes - The Road to Wonder

Taylor Hughes - The Road to Wonder
For some people, it's a really big deal to feel like they're in control. When life throws them curveballs (or worse), cue the anxiety or frustration.

For others, they spend quite a bit of energy trying to avoid complexity or surprises. They prefer life to happen in a predictable way, and like it when they can switch into autopilot mode.

But, reality doesn't work either way.

In the wise words of my pal, Taylor Hughes, "Your life is not a puzzle to be solved, it is a mystery to enjoy!" Sometimes we need to be redirected to be able to see the wonder happening all around us. 

Taylor Hughes fell in love with the art of illusion when his parents bought him a magic kit for his 7th birthday. More than 30 years and 3,000 shows later, Taylor has become known for his signature style of Magic Storytelling. He is a favorite at Hollywood's famed Magic Castle, a highly sought after Keynote Presenter and has a special on Amazon Prime called '"Chasing Wonder".

Taylor's new book, The Road to Wonder: Finding the Extra in Your Ordinary, is now available for pre-order. 

Taylor is married to his high school sweetheart Katie and they live in Southern California with their two daughters Madelyn and Kennedy.
