Do Hard Things

Teenagers get a bad wrap sometimes.  Largely because their accomplishments are held back by the low expectations our culture puts upon them.  In their book, "Do Hard Things," the Harris brothers enlighten young people to a rebellion against low expectations.  They talk about how to do things that move us past our comfort zones, reach out for support, and sow for long term reaping.  Their book is awesome for teenagers.  And it is also awesome for adults! In fact, our children will learn how to achieve their goals from watching us defy cultural standards and excelling in our faith!  Take a listen to hear Alex and Brett's story, and to try out their 5 tips for getting better.
n? But we rarely spend time considering the most important question of all: WHY is any of this important to me? When if we Start with Why, we can let action grow out of passion. And that produces the most astounding and consistent results! To learn how to find your Why and see where that can go, check out today's Excel Still More episode.
