What's up everybody? My name is cliff and you are listening to the What now podcast. That's right. The what now podcast where we threw conversation discuss ways that we can effectively address life's most difficult moments. So sit back, relax and enjoy tonight's episode Block told radio Welcome to the What now podcast. Yes, yeah.

Ah Mhm, mhm. Hey, what's up everybody? Welcome back to the What now podcast. That's right. The wood nail podcast. And listen, I just realized something. Even on my radio shows, I have a habit of repeating myself. Like I say the what now podcast and I'll be like, that's right. The wood now podcast. I don't know why I do that. It's just something that I really know this right while I was doing it, but yo welcome back, It's been a minute since I recorded, I've had a lot of things going on, a lot of great things guys, 2020 is shaping up to be a phenomenal year, but you know what? One of my guests on my shows talked about not just declaring a phenomenal year, but as we're entering into a new decade that we are declaring a decade like we've never had before, but I don't want you to give up on this decade yet, because we still have a couple more weeks and in those couple of weeks there's still some things that can go on To set the stage for 2020 and beyond 2020 and beyond.

Thank you again for tuning in on tonight Today afternoon, whenever you're listening, excuse me, the purpose of this podcast is to have conversations about effectively dealing with facing, conquering, destroying the influence of the impact that life's most most difficult moments and I use difficult as difficult as air quotes because sometimes it's a matter of of our perception when we begin to realize that they may present adversity, they aren't necessarily difficult in the sense of what they will birth. Yes, it may come and be challenging because we've never faced it before, or it may feel is that man, I'm just being hit on my left, my right in the front and the back from my head to my toes, it may feel like that and it may feel difficult, but the reality is that once we embrace that it is a part of the process and once we allow the word of God to become real and evident in our lives and when I was speaking of the Word of God, I'm speaking of the very scripture that says all things work together for the good.

It did not say all things are good, It does not say all things feel good. It did not say all things look good. It did not say all things taste good. But when you mix it all together, every ingredient is needed in order to prepare the full course meal and you're that full course meal, some of you've been calling yourself a snack and settling, settling for being called a snack. But tonight I want you to declare I am a full course meal. All right now, that's not what we're talking about on tonight. But I just felt led to share that on tonight unless I want to know have you shared the podcast with your friends and your loved ones? Heavy because I see you're watching. But I feel like our numbers cooked, crawl up just a little bit more, just a little bit more. It's not even about the numbers, but I want everybody to hear the message. I want everybody to experience that you are experiencing, man, I guess I got excited almost knocked myself off the table.

But I want more people to experience because the more people that experience is experience it experience it, the more they can tell other people. And the message begins to be expanded when I begin, you know ministry and I begin my business. It was never about me making money. Now. Now I want to explain that it is about me making money. But that's not the focal point. The focal point is that I am able to empower, educate, what is it activate and release people into purpose. I want to provide tools and strategies that transition individuals from a life of merely existing to experiencing and living a life full of abundance and purpose. And I don't even know that I introduce myself. My name is cooked in petty john and for the sake of this podcast, you can call me cliff. Now let's get into the subject and head on tonight. Okay. Yeah. If I sound excited, I am, I leave with the Bahamas and less than 48 hours.

But guess what? I can't find my passport or my birth certificate or any of the documents that I need. So, I have to hop off of this podcast, record the second podcast and then I got to get to finding my documentation. If not, I gotta go to vital statistics in the morning so I can get a new birth certificate. All right. So let's go. The topic of tonight is live your truth and I can't emphasize that more. I can't emphasize it anymore than I already have on a daily continuous basis. I emphasize it by verbally expressing it and then I attempt to emphasize it by living my truth and you know the whole my truth Movement is something that came. I can't remember how many years ago and I'm not gonna offend anybody by saying it was 10 years ago and somebody said no because I was saying that 20 years ago. I don't remember when it gained its popularity, but I hear a lot of people speak about it. Now.

Here's the thing with me about living in my truth or hearing people express my truth and I put on the title, it's okay to living your truth. Live your truth. Just make sure your truth is at laced with, with lies about others, with lies about others. One of the things that I've noticed a lot in life is that a lot of people have a crab mentality and if you ever went crabbing, I hate it. Um but and I don't eat seafood either. So um but when I was younger, I used to be made to go crabbing, but I didn't, I wasn't made to go um a lot of times, I think it was just an attempt to make me more mandate. Um But anyway, um if you ever watch crabs inside of a bucket, they're all trying to escape and I believe that they've had conversations about what would happen to them when they get caught and are placed in a bucket.

I believe they understand that the end of their life is near and any time, the end of your life or you feel as if you're in a desperate situation or a situation that's uncomfortable to you, then you become desperate in the sense of you are willing to do whatever it takes to preserve yourself. But one thing about crabs is that it can be a crab that's climbing to get out of the bucket and instead of the other crabs helping push them out so they could be next out. What happens is that crab begins to pull the other crabs down so that they can begin to climb. And the sad part about this is that many of us have adapted or adopted this mindset in our own personal lives and I'm gonna be real with you. I found myself doing that at times or passing the buck on somebody else. And even though some of the things that I may have said about people were true, the reality is that even though it may have been true, what they did, I don't have all of the answers to why they did what they did their mindset concerning what they did.

So the only person that I really can focus on is myself. And then there's a flip side of it where there are people who will completely lie about somebody lie about their experience with somebody just because they are labeling it as I'm living in my truth, what I want to explain to each and every one of us tonight. That if we're ever really gonna live in our truth, then we have to understand that r truth is ours and someone else's truth is there's and whether they're ready to express the truth of the reality that even involves you, that doesn't give you the right to begin to twist the narrative to make you look like a superstar or make you look super amazing. There's a reality that in each of us, there is the human side of us. We many times, excuse me as it relates to that human side. Some of us don't don't like for other people to know or experience that human side.

Um I've grown over the years to embrace my human side now, I understand my human side is not for everybody. Everybody can't handle that. But the reality is that in me expressing my truth of who I am, the totality of who I am. So that means you're gonna get the good, the not so good, the not not not so good, the good, good, good, good, good and the good, Good. You're going to get all of that. And basically what I'm saying is you're going to get the areas that I have mastered quality character and you're gonna get the areas where I am attempting to master greater character and you're going to get some of the areas where I may ignore character development in right now, even though I may be aware that there's a need for character development. I'm just not ready to touch that area right now. And that's my truth. Truth is when you embrace the reality of everything that embodies you, that's when you really can live in your truth.

Many of us aren't living in truth. We're living in virtual reality and virtual reality basically means that we are attempting to create a reality that feels good to us that looks good to us. That sounds good to us and makes us look good all the time and that's just not reality. I don't have to knock you down to make myself look good. I don't have to talk ill of you to make myself look good, especially when you've been good to me. You have literally been good to me and I'm gonna tell you one of the greatest lessons I had to learn in my life was that I don't have to chase every battle and here's what I'm talking about. I've dealt with people sometimes who have um situations have went down and I've been wrong, I admit I've been wrong, I have been wrong. Sometimes. I have not handled every situation correctly. However, the other person also knows the role that they played in the situations, you know, as the situations arise now instead of that person explaining that to the people that may not be privy to all information and maybe people who just make quick decisions based upon the right now, they've laid back played the victim and acted as if you know that's what really happened.

And I remember I used to try to chase down all the lies about me and try to explain to people that's not what happened. It didn't happen like that, that's not what I meant by it. I used to get so drained and tired by trying to get people to embrace what I view as the truth of the situation. And I had to come to a reality that people are going to see and believe things based upon their perception in their desire to know truth or their desire not to search out true. And as long as I'm at peace and here's what living in your truth is living in your truth means regardless of who agrees who disagrees, I'm going to be authentically who I was created to be. And authentically learning who I was created to be regardless of who likes. It does not like it feels I'm wrong, has something mean to say has been thoughts about me as long as I have peace with the creator.

As long as I have peace within then I am embracing the truth of who I am and my truth has nothing to do with you. And when you can embrace then you would real, you will realize just how powerful your truth is. How a intimidating your truth can be yet how attractive your truth can be to those who are seeking out truth and desire to experience truth for themselves. So my encouragement to each and every one of you be a true seeker be a truth liver and by all means get rid of all the lies about others that have leased the impact of your truth as I always say. And I don't think I say it on here too much create a great day walk with purpose and by all means execute your vision and I'm gonna add something to it by living and the power influence and impact of your truth be blessed.

Mhm mm. Can you identify any areas in your life where stagnation is manifesting now? I know some of you might say no I can't. I want us to look at stagnation for what it really is. Some people have identified stagnation as something that's not growing or that's not producing. I don't believe that stagnation to me stagnation can also be the yes we're growing. Yes we're producing however were growing and producing in a manner that's disrespectful to the purpose and the greatness that resides inside of us.
