I honestly can’t think of a better person to kick off this Sow.Reap.Live project than Erwin McManus from Mosaic in Los Angeles. This very message from Erwin was the catalyst to me completely changing direction and launching Sow.Reap.Live.
I had just committed to another business project when I heard this Podcast 4 days ago. The “but first” topic in this podcast was like a big punch in the face, one that I personally needed. I’m not sure where you are in your journey in life or your thoughts on God or faith, either way I’m confident you will get something special from this message.

Passion and Procrastination
Your life is always in motion, it’s either moving forward or moving backward. If you think you’re standing still or in a holding pattern, guess what? I have some bad news, you’re losing ground and moving backwards.
Passion doesn’t usually get handed to us with a beer when we’re sitting on the couch watching TV. In my life I can say that the first step to passion is discipline. Just starting is the key. Start anywhere, no matter how simple or small, just start.
There is a small test as you begin to take that first step. What’s the test? Are you willing to step over procrastination in order to get to your passion? Would you discipline yourself to do something you don’t really want to do in order to get something you really want to have? Starting+Discipline=Passion

Opportunity Leads to Opportunity
Without a doubt being confident is crucial to having others buy into you, your story and your idea. Whether it’s signing a new client, selling a house or even getting that next job, being confident is key. The trick is to be confident in your abilities but transparent in wanting to learn, grow and improve.
I loved this podcast for many reasons, but one of my favorites was listening how Amos Heller was willing to humble himself to seek out others, asking all of the questions he needed to ask in order to take his career to the next level.
- Being specific about what you want.
- Track down people that are doing exactly what you want to do and ask them questions without the fear of looking green.
- Don’t put on a show, be real, be yourself.
Be honest, humble and show your passion and drive to be the best…you will win people over and get more help and advice than you’ll ever need to move in the direction of your dreams. Amos did and now he is living his dream, touring the globe, onstage with one of the biggest music artists in the world.
