In This Episode:
Tyler and Mike welcome Dr. Brent House to the RMIT podcast. Brent comes in as a friend of Tyler's and leaves as a friend of the program. The guys jump right in with Brent to revisit the value and purpose of setbacks in our lives. Brent describes himself as "extraordinarily ordinary" and the lessons that he shares from his story are timeless classics, including:
- Focusing on who we become vs. what we do
- Being enough
- Overcoming our sense of inadequacy
- Taking risks
Looking back, his "rich life" has come as a result of a hundred little choices that help him to build his character, his courage, and his faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Throw in some powerful lessons on prayer and receiving personal revelation and you get an instant RMIT classic.
Who Said It...
- "Forty-three years old, and the war occurred half a lifetime ago, and yet remembering makes it now. And sometimes remembering will lead to a story, which makes it forever. That's what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can't remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story." -Tim O'Brien
