Niche: Mormon men who want to stop settling and start creating the life they want. 

Find out more about Bob HERE!

Finding fulfillment in life goes beyond simply checking all the boxes of the things we feel we need to do as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Fulfillment doesn’t come from a checklist but from a conscious and deliberate effort in pursuing and doing the things that make one happy. 

Today coach Bob Smith is here today to talk about how he helps men in the Church move past the checklist so they can live the life they want and are meant to live. If you are or know a man in your life who is doing all he can to live the right way but still seems like he is not living the life he desires to live, you need to listen to this podcast. 

 

Takeaways:

*A transformational process may be a small shift but it can be extremely impactful.

*We often settle for what we have in life because our brain is familiar with what we have been doing and it’s hard to break out of the familiar.

*Progression is built into our DNA.

*We can often be “checking all the boxes” but we aren’t checking into the fulfillment of our lives.

*Desires and wants are just as much God given as the need to be grateful for what we have.

*We often have desires but feel like we don’t have the right to pursue them. 

*Our lives won’t be built in a day so we have to be open, make a decision, and then move forward one step at a time. 

*There are six key areas to life:

  1. Personal Well Being.
  2. Family
  3. Social
  4. Financial and Environmental 
  5. Career and Contribution.
  6. Intimate Love Relationship.

*Once you are clear on what you want it’s easier to invite the people who will help you in that quest into your life. 

*As a man in the Church community, it’s important to have a network of people outside your wife and children so that all the pressure is not on them to help you feel fulfilled and complete. 

*When we develop ourselves away from our spouse it helps the relationship with our spouse when we get back together.

*Many good Mormon men have a lot of self-judgement towards themselves and that judgement of self often trickles down to their marriages, relationships with their kids, in their workplace, etc. When they can learn to really love themselves, they stop judging themselves and others. 

 

Discussion Questions:

  1. As a man in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, do you feel fulfilled in all areas of your life? If not, where do you feel unfulfilled?
  2. What are the things you really desire in your life? Do you feel like God wants those things for you as well?
  3. How would your life be different as a man in the Church if you stopped trying to follow a checklist and instead followed your heart and individual plan God had for you?
