Show Notes

A military stronghold is a fortified place so as to protect it from attack.

Strongholds don’t just exist on the military battlefield, they can exist in your mind. A stronghold is a fortified house made up of thoughts. The way you think can help you or seriously hurt you.

When you are being attacked, a stronghold is a great thing. But, when you believe wrong things, these ways of thinking become strongholds that keep success from breaking in on you. Zig Ziglar used to call it stinkin’ thinkin’. 

One of the ways of thinking and strategies that will hold you back or propel you forward is that if constantly telling everyone: I AM JUST SO BUSY.

Today's show talks about how wearing busyness as a badge of honor is announcing something really horrible to the world.

Keep saying thank you, telling stories, and responding well to people when they introduce themselves to you!
