Show Host Dean Renfro: Well, as you walk around freedom camp, you often hear conversations kind of built around nine different things. Those nine different things have a lot to do with what it means to stay free, to be free. One of those things that you often hear around the campfire is that freedom camp is that we have to meet life head on with full presence and power. What we discovered here at freedom camp is that one of the things that kept us back on the other side at fear camp and made it difficult for us to cross to March up fear, mountain and crossover was that we often found ourselves thinking about the past all the time, whether we hated the past, or we loved the past, we kind of stayed focused on the things that were in the past, where there were security there. We thought about the past.
At least we knew what it was. At least we knew what it felt like. At least we knew the conversations and the people there cause you see living in the moment, living today kind of brings with it, its own challenges here at freedom camp, you hear the, you hear the veterans talk about what you have to do to move ahead. What you have to leave behind what you have to become really good. You do that to live today, right? As we think about the past, we reminded of the, of the wisdom in the book of wisdom, what it says, you have to forget the things in the past. That doesn't mean that you obliterate them from your memory. You just don't live there anymore. We changed addresses today. We live for today. What happens in the moment, but that same book of wisdom talks about, and that same little nugget says that you press you take action toward the goal that is before you, the thing that has to come into your life today so that you can live for something beyond the prize that is beyond well, as you go around the fires here, the veterans talk about their freedom.
You hear them talk about the fact that you have to get really good at several different things. Thought it was interesting for us to talk about those things today. Well, welcome to the morning. Wake up call. We're glad to have you with us today. We hope to inspire you, inform you and give you some insights that will help you grow yourself. And in turn, help you grow your business so you can change your world and the community around you at freedom camp. They all, you often hear the veterans talk about being a very good observer paying attention. We'll look at seeing things that nobody else sees. See that man, helping that lady across the street, see that smile on that. Kid's face. See that pump fist, see that messy hair day, but they go on anyway, paying attention to the details. I'm an observer of what's really happening too often where we're too busy too often. We're unfocused too often. We find ourselves in another place.
The observer learns to Hoover up over their life and take a look around, see where this is all going. And what's really happening here. And what am I thinking? And what am I doing? And what am I feeling? And where am I headed? Because I'm paying attention to where this life goes. I press one of the things about, about someone in a race is that they have to be focused on where they're going. Because the moment they lose that focus, the moment they get out of the lane, the moment they turn back, they lose precious seconds. Sometimes they even fall down.
What's going to happen in this scene. What unfolds who's going to be at the table? What are they going to say? How's this risk response. What's going to happen at the end. Who's going to give up, who's going to get up. Who's gonna change the moment being the director gives us the ability to write the story the way we want it to see written. The third role that you hear from from the veteran freedom fighters is you have to learn to be the guardian of your mind, your soul and your body. You have to, you have to stand at the gate and protect yourself from those unwanted contaminations of negativity, information, people, habits. As a guardian of our minds, we have to learn to stand there, to guard ourselves from things that would overtake our thinking and drive us to the past. Our drive us off the road into oblivion.
We have to learn to guard our mind, be aware, know what we need to hear? No, what we need to see the same time we have to be guardians of our bodies for it is in this physical presence that we have. Then everything that needs to, to move us forward is present. If we abuse it, misuse it, miss feed it and neglect it. While our mind may be sharp and guarded, our bodies will fail us. It's important that we be guardians of our bodies and what must be guardians of our souls. That, that which drives us forward. That which moves us, inspires us, causes us to dream beyond it must be guardians, not let anything steal away. We can't allow, allow the tyrant or the Jackal or the jerk to contaminate that dream. They must go. They cannot be a part of this journey that we're directing all. And then you come across the brave warrior, a freedom who says you must also be a warrior. I have learned you must, you must stand up and fight for what you want to have happen for. There are people as you learn crossing over fear mountain that will take, we'll take your dream. We'll take your future. We'll Rob. You will beat. You will misuse you. You have to stand up and be a warrior. You have to decide what you are going to fight for.
You'd have to decide what you're going to bring into your life and stand up for it because you'll find as you did crossing over fair mountain to everything worthwhile is uphill. You have to fight for that dream. That's real in your mind and in your heart and in your life, you must fight for your family. You must fight for your relationships. You must have that spirit. That's hungry and ambitious and courageous because a warrior spirit is a spirit of readiness, a bias toward action, ready to take advantage of the moment to move forward, to defend, to make something great.
Well, as we go around your amount, as we go around freedom camp, we find ourselves oftentimes with the whole reality of we have to meet life in its full power in its full presence. Today, we do that by being a person that's ready to take action. Are you ready today? I hope so. And I hope this call the morning.
