“You cannot change Truth, but Truth can change you” MFC

“Methods are many,principles are few.methods always change,principles never do” is a quote I will never forget hearing at a conference I attended at 19 years old.  There is only one Truth for salvation and that is Jesus Christ and that Truth can be learned about by the infallible word of God , the Bible.  All good principles in day-to-day living also have their roots in the bible as well.  Fortunately for the last 4 years I was given the chance to learn about many principles that have changed my LIFE and  I thought today I would give a few ideas on resources for books etc that can help with great principles on topics such as character, purpose, attitude, programming, gameplanning,keeping score, family, friendship, financial management, leadership, conflict resolution, systems thinking,anxiety, depression, forgiveness, handling adversity, and legacy. These are some of my favorites for sure. Orrin Woodwards book “Resolved” has been the most influential on principles for me and Tim Marks book “Voyage of a Viking” is a biography I will never forget.    If anyone has any other great resources for great principles feel free to comment. god bless

I also “of course” recommend the 90 Day Mental Fitness Challenge for a chance to have someone to be accountable to for growth!   www.90daymentalfitchallenge.com/


Mental Fitness Challenge

Tara and I took the challenge yesterday and we are so excited!  Our goal is to take proper information to the mainstream public because somehow what is mainstream information today isn’t proper or accurate.  The challenge is also whole lot of fun.


God bless   cody

Orrin Woodard posting more information about it on his blog, here it is, enjoy!

Mental Fitness Challenge for Customers

It’s been three full days since the Mental Fitness Challenge rollout in Columbus, and the MFC already has 1,254 new customers. That’s over 400 customers a day joining the Mental Fitness Challenge, and it’s only three days old! Chris Brady and I set a goal to create a program available to all, affordable to all, and achievable by all. The MFC has accomplished all three.

I know what the reader is thinking. Sure Orrin, yet another program to help people grow and change. Hasn’t everyone witnessed people who tried program after program for change but never seemed to really change? I know I have. For without the formation of new habits in thought and action, a person quickly reverts to his old self, regardless of how many CDs listened to or books read. The MFC, however, is different because it is designed around the two crucial elements of all lasting change – congregation and community. Let me explain:

First, a person takes the MFC Self-Assessment Test to determine which of the thirteen resolutions for success represents an area where he needs help. Second, he can email his friends and request that they take the MFC Self-Assessment Test about him, providing 360-degree feedback to ensure he is not self-deceiving himself on his score. The friends’ grading results are compiled together, ensuring complete honesty from one’s friends on the test, before being sent back to the MFC participant. Many firms pay tens of thousands of dollars to gather 360-degree feedback, but with the MFC, it’s just part of the program.

Third, the MFC participant dives into the CDs and the RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for LIFE book, reading the first chapter on Purpose and beginning his journey of change. Every week, videos by Chris Brady and myself will be emailed ensuring the student is picking up the key nuggets in each chapter. The MFC member will also have a grading sheet to assess how his implementation plan is going on the specific weekly resolution, similar to how Ben Franklin checked and adjusted as he applied his “13 Virtues” in his life. On top of all of this, if any friends of the MFC participant choose to take the MFC, then he also has his friends as accountability partners, and they can help each other follow through on the commitments made to change. Even more crazy, if three of his friends choose to take the Challenge with him, then his MFC is FREE!

Fourth, if one desires additional support, then he can join a local Challenge Group and attend Challenge Trainings available in his area at affordable prices. The Mental Fitness Challenge is 90 days of attacking the status quo in a person’s life, asking him or her to view life from a different perspective. Like Albert Einstein once said, “The significant problems we face in life cannot be solved at the same level of thinking that created them.” The 90-day MFC teaches a new level of thinking, resolving the problems that hold a person back from the life he always wanted. After 90 days of reading, listening, and associating with other like-minded people, nobody will want to go back to his old reality.

Now I am back where I started – congregation and community. The MFC is built around the two pillars for real change (congregation and community), and thus, it works. Congregation teaches the group the right principles, and community ensures the group associates with the right people. The MFC is the only personal development program that provides ongoing support in both of these non-negotiable areas.  The MFC program is a 90-day plan; however, any satisfied customer can join a monthly subscription of 4 CDs and a book for the unheard of price of $50 per month. Furthermore, the MFC participant can join a local chapter of our Challenge Groups and enjoy fellowship and trainings at $10 or less per event.

The entire MFC package is just $220 plus shipping. I know it’s crazy, but we truly want to reach the world with real change that makes a difference. What is the reader waiting for? Go to the www.mental-fitness-challenge.com site today and take the Challenge or at least sign up for the free Pre-Challenge. :)  here is my personal page      http://www.90daymentalfitchallenge.com/

IN LIFE Freedom Begins With Education

This is a post by a great friend of mine talking about how much Orrin Woodward and his LIFE Leadership Materials have benefitted his Life journey over the last couple of years. Pappa Biggs as we call him,  has become a staunch reader and can relate to all walks of life because of the education he has received from Chris Brady, Tim Marks, and Orrin Woodwards Leadership. god bless cody

I’ve been in the Community Building Industry for 19 years.  My background before
entering the industry was in banking industry for 16 years chiefly as a
lending officer and several other higher functions toward the end of that
career.  So I’ve seen the various viabilities of many businesses, including
the banking industry.  And I might add that I’m not at all surprised that
the banking industry and our nation’s businesses are in their current
situation, because of errant and misguided heads in both the banking
industry and the regulation of the banking industry.  I remember having a
philosophical discussion with a head bank examiner in 1991, that the Feds
(FDIC) and Federal Reserve Bank were taking the country down the wrong path
by grading consumer loans as gold and toileting solid entrepreneurial loans.
It was a path of consumerism vs production.

I must admit that during those years I wasn’t much of a broad range reader.
My focus and my identity was the BANKER.  Leaving that industry at that time
was not easy from  personal and financial perspectives, but it was the best
decision I’ve made in my life!  The impending consolidation of small
independent banks in Kansas would mean the sacrifice of my family for a
risky career.  Much of the impetuous for the consolidation was caused by
increasing regulatory burdens and the arrogance of big city regulators, who
courted the big banks for their next career advancement into a large bank or
up the regulatory political ladder, to the detriment of our country’s
economic engine – small community banks, who knew the character of
entrepreneurs in their community.

The networking industry appealed to me because of the independence
and reward based on merit.  However, I did find in my journey in this
industry, that similar to the banking industry, whoever had the gold wrote
the rules.  So it wasn’t always right that ruled.  Truly, just more of the

It was a breath of fresh air  a few years back when Cody Newton finallyasked to meet with me

aaaannnd   If you know Cody, he gets to the heart of
matter, quickly, that’s an attribute I like.  Anyway, he asked, if I would
be interested in  the TEAM Leadership Material.  My
immediate responds was, “WHEN”?  I was aware of the progress people using
their system had achieved and it was being repeated over and over.  It is a
personally demanding system, but well worth it.  As in all endeavors, no
struggle, no advancement.  I’ve certainly grown by listening, reading and
associating with the humble, vision focused leadership of this support

Tying both the thinking and experiences from my banking and networking
background in light of the future of the environment that my progeny will be
looking at has been coming into focus in the last couple of months.  Two
books have been enlightening to me: “1776” by David McCullough and “Freedom
Shift” by Oliver DeMille.  Especially, chapter 2 in “1776” – ‘Rabble in
Arms’, which gives the background of two American Generals, who were
initially inexperienced militarily, but were personally responsible for
their education.  These generals were Nathanael Greene and John Knox.
“1776” is a great read to understand the indomitable spirit of men, who burn
to be free.  To quote an opening line from General George Washington,
“Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.”  After reading this
book, you will understand “perseverance” at a level a modern American has no
clue about!

In “Freedom Shift” the last sections of Chapter 1 headed up as ‘The Growing
Popularity of Producer Education” and “Entrepreneurs and Freedom” speaks to
the foundation of freedom begins.  With people “taking charge” of their
education!  In the colonies, key people took charge of their education,
which lead to an understanding of the issues during the reign of King George
over the colonies.  Their reading lead them further toward courage from the
understanding of the spiritual nature of the endowment in us by our creator
toward freedom.  We all have that same call to freedom (witness the current
protest toward Wall Street).  Although, many do not have the direction
toward the pursuit of that freedom, because they don’t take personal
responsibility to improve their education on personal and societal issues
and/or they don’t have the wisdom to pursue mentors, who have produced
success through achievement from their own endeavors.

Orrin Woodward says, “Ideals have consequences!”  That’s so true!  Ideals
can work either way – Good or Evil!  As Chris Brady asks, “Are you going to
be a force for Good or Evil?”  Be careful!  Choose your mentors wisely!
Choose the ones, who strive to follow the attainment of a God inspired
purpose, in God inspired ways!  I believe, I have chosen well by following
Cody, who is following and holding his leaders and himself accountable to a
God given purpose.  Welcome to the journey of LIFE>>>>
