How to Create a Larger Vision (Jeremy Lopez)



The second episode of 2018 is all about vision, which Dr. Jeremy Lopez says begins with a journey inward.

Dictionary.com defines the word “vision” as – the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be; And those of us who have grown up in the church most of our lives have constantly heard things like, “Without vision, the people perish”.

But what is the importance of having a vision in 2018?

Quotes you can’t miss:

  • The outward is just an overflow of the inward.
  • You attract what’s in your heart.

  • What you behold, you become.
  • All of us create monsters or demons every day because we don’t understand our creative power.

The Power of Intention (with Logan Tyler Nelson)



In Episode 46 of the #AskSteveAustin Podcast, Steve Austin talks with Logan Tyler Nelson about the power of embracing and cultivating intentionality in our daily lives. Today’s big question: Is life happening to you, or for you?

power of intention

Show Notes:

Dictionary.com defines the word “intention” like this – an act or instance of determining mentally upon some act or result; another definition is this: purpose or attitude toward the effect of one’s actions or conduct:

Oprah says this, “The #1 principle that rules my life is intention. Thought by thought, choice by choice, we are cocreating our lives based on the energy of intention.”

But what about that quote we’ve heard all our lives, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”? What’s missing between Oprah’s perspective and this old adage about the road to hell?

In Oprah’s book of quotes, The Wisdom of Sundays, Gary Zukav describes the difference between an INtention and an OUTtention. What most of us think of as an intention is actually the outward version of that. Gary’s example is this, “I want to get another job, so I can have more money.” But the INTENTION, as Oprah says it, is the WHY beneath the why. It’s the motivation for getting the new job or more money that counts. It’s the energy you use for doing the intended thing.

Quotes from today’s show:

  • “We create our own world. We are responsible for our attitude. That’s the reason you have the reality or the life you are living right now.”
  • “If your life stinks you had something to do with it and the opposite is true. If your life is good you had something to do with it.”
  • “Time is finite.”
  • “To make a life worth living is to save someone from negative thinking.”
  • “Knowing your why is very important, but we have to know the action steps to get there.”
  • “Quality of life comes down to quality of questions.”
  • “To create a life worth living requires a bit of patience and clarity.”
  • “Is life happening to you, or for you?”
  • Oprah Winfrey, “Intention is one with cause and effect. Intention determines outcome. And if you’re stuck and not moving forward, you have to check the thought and the action that created the circumstance.”
  • Donald Miller said, “It is not so much the aim of the devil to lure me with evil as it is to preoccupy me with the meaningless.”
