3 Simple Resolutions that Will Impact You Beyond 2014

new years

1. Less screen time, more talk time

Fifty-six percent of Americans own smartphones. I fall into the latter 44 percent, and I still spend way too much time monitoring my digital “friendships.” Facebook is a great channel to stay in the loop with people whom I otherwise would have lost touch with. But it boggles my mind when I see a couple out to eat, sitting right across from each other with their heads down, scrolling through their newsfeeds. STOP. Look at the people around you and talk to them. Listen to their daily challenges. Be excited with them when they have good news to share. Give advice. Receive advice. Start being more concerned about how your life actually is, rather than how it’s perceived by others.

2. Be kind—regardless of your circumstances

This is a simple idea, yet so easily dismissed in our words and actions every day. You are not entitled to a rude attitude. We are all human beings dealing with the curveballs life throws at us (Proverbs 15:1).

Kindness is not a sign of simplemindedness, weakness, or naivety.  It’s simply another clue that you have something deeper in your heart that overflows your soul with joy—Jesus Christ. So whether it’s a stranger, a coworker, or someone you’ve known for years, give them a smile, a few words of encouragement, or even assistance carrying their groceries. You never know what a blessing you may be to them.

3. Set resolutions beyond January 1

January 1 is here, and it will come again. But don’t let 2015 be the next time you set new goals. January 1 may be the first day of each year, but it’s still another date that only comes once a year—just like the other 364 dates. So set goals, and set them often. If you want to have a healthier lifestyle, a more disciplined Bible study, or a better relationship with loved ones, start right away! Avoid excuses of weekends, vacations, or the holidays to delay plans. Life is flying by, so start making strides toward better habits every day.

What are some of your New Year’s resolutions? How do you plan to achieve them? Let us know in the comments!

Vyrso’s Top 5 Guest Posts of 2013

Golden Trophy

Christian authors and bloggers poured their hearts into this year’s guest posts. From firsthand accounts of America’s slums to timely discussions about digital Bibles, we feel honored and excited to be a part of the ongoing discussions amongst today’s Christians.

Although we featured a ton of truly powerful guest posts, here are the top five that 2013 had to offer.

 

 

This year’s top 5 guest posts

1. Digital Bibles: Good or Bad Idea? by Poncho Lowder

Touching on a topic both timely and contentious, Poncho Lowder struck a nerve when he posed a question that almost every pastor wrestles with: do digital Bibles help or hinder today’s church? After his blog post went live, it became increasingly clear that almost every church leader carries around their own personal laundry list of pros and cons for digital Bibles: from the naysayers who say you can’t spend quality time in the Word by glancing at your phone to enthusiasts who support always having your Bible in your pocket to pretty much every other church leader who’s asked, “Is he listening to my sermon? Or just trolling Facebook?” Regardless of which side you’re on, the questions Lowder raises represent the constant flurry of changes facing the modern church, and our willingness to either adapt or resist them.

2. 5 Ways to Show Millennials Why They Need to Stay in Church by Caleb Breakey

It’s no secret that young people—ages 18–35—are leaving the church in droves. What’s a little less obvious is how to get them to stay. In Breakey’s post, he asks a question that many wandering millennials have yet to consider: “What if Jesus is calling you to redeem not only this world, but also your local church?” Offering a unique perspective on an oft-discussed topic, Breakey’s post is both relevant and biblical, and offers some powerful food for thought for the many church leaders trying to keep their ministry intact.

3. Chasing God: One Man’s Journey into America’s Slums by Mark Forrester

It’s hard to imagine that the richest nation in the world is home to a place as destitute as the Tenderloin District. After traveling with Roger Huang, author of Chasing God and founder of San Francisco City Impact, Forrester gives a heartbreaking firsthand account of his experience in one of the poorest communities in America. The blog post (and Huang’s powerful book) will break your heart, while giving you hope in God’s transformational glory.

4. Raw Faith: One Woman’s Courageous Battle with Cancer by Kasey Van Norman

Chronicling her painful experience with breast cancer, Van Norman provides a realistic account of how she used her grief to grow closer to God.Cancer has taught me many things,” she wrote, “but one jewel of truth outshines them all: God cares deeply for those who suffer, and in caring, shows himself deep through suffering.” Openly discussing her rage and battles with chemotherapy, Van Norman offers powerful advice for anyone trying to come to terms with pain and hardship in their own life.

5. Stop Playing Hide-and-Seek: How to Step into God’s Light by Elyse Fitzpatrick

Elyse Fitzpatrick is one of the most honest and down-to-earth Christian writers you’re likely to come across. In her introspective blog post, she talks about something everyone can relate to: hiding your true identity. Whether you’re avoiding shame, embarrassment, or losing the love of those around you, Fitzpatrick reminds readers that God already know your secrets—and loves you regardless.

Vyrso’s Top 5 Interviews of 2013

Microphone

This has been Vyrso’s best year yet. Throughout 2013, we featured some awesome interviews with top Christian authors. From seasoned pastors to new writers, our interviews ran the gamut from discussing Christians and homosexuality to examining what’s wrong with the modern church.

Top 5 interviews of 2013

1. One Way Love: An Exclusive Interview with Tullian Tchividjian

In this powerful two-part interview, Tchividjian passionately discussed what he believes is wrong with the modern church, how to overcome our society’s narcissism, and the real meaning of God’s good news. The interview is both revealing and intense, and speaks to the many church leaders, Christians, and lay people who long for relief in an increasingly exhausting world.

“. . . too many churches perpetuate the impression that Christianity is primarily concerned with ‘getting better’—however that is defined. The fact is that Christianity is not about good people getting better. It is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good. The heart of the Christian faith is good news—not good behavior, good technique, or good advice.” —Tullian Tchividjian

2. Homosexuality and the Church: An Interview with Peter Hubbard

As one of the most hotly debated issues facing today’s church, it’s not hard to find a politician, billboard, or petition yelling at you to take sides on homosexuality. What’s much harder to find is a theologically sound resource that addresses the issue both biblically and compassionately. Hubbard manages to do both. His interview reveals his inspiration for his book, Love into Light, his hope for the church, and society’s biggest misconceptions about how Christians view homosexuality.

3. The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker

As a man leading the charge of developing young, Christian leaders, Brad Lomenick knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a strong leader. In his interview, he talks about the impact of Catalyst, his hope for future leaders, and the legacy he wants to leave behind.

“At Catalyst, we are crazy about gathering, inspiring, and releasing the next wave of leaders who love Jesus and have a burden to be Catalysts in their communities and culture . . . I’m incredibly optimistic about the next wave of leaders who are now stepping into leadership roles. It’s a generation of leaders willing to work their guts out for something bigger than themselves, willing to work together to accomplish the big vision.” —Brad Lomenick

4. Thrashing About with God: An Interview with Mandy Steward

At some point or another, we’ve all fought our way through spiritual turmoil. But few of us actually have the guts to talk about it as openly and honestly as Steward. In Thrashing About with God, Steward talks about closing her Bible, leaving the church, and the meaning of “messy grace.”

5. The Great Evangelical Recession: An Interview with John S. Dickerson

As an award-winning journalist and pastor, Dickerson’s heart lies in developing the modern church. In his interview, Dickerson talks about young people leaving the church, our rapidly changing culture, and the six factors that will crash the American church.

What to look forward to in 2014!

We’ve got an exciting year ahead of us. Look out for interviews with Mark Driscoll, Chip Ingram, Brian Hardin, and some of 2014’s biggest up-and-coming authors.

3 Things I Learned from a Visit with the Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, and Peyton Manning

Legacy Builder

Today’s guest post is by Rod Olson, a highly sought-after speaker, author, coach, and leadership consultant. In addition to 20 years of experience as a collegiate football coach, Olson has trained over 100,000 leaders nationwide. Today only: get his book, The Legacy Builder—along with three other titles by top leadership experts—for 70% off with the True Leadership Bundle!

What if you could spend a day with the leaders of the Army Rangers, a day with the leaders of the Navy SEALs in Coronado, CA, and then be a fly on the wall in an informal meeting with Peyton Manning? I was blessed enough to be able to do just this.

Here are three gold nuggets of wisdom I picked up on my journeys this past month with some of these elite leaders.

1. Focus on facts, not feelings

As I found myself at the edge of a 75-foot cliff, I had a decision to make: succumb to my feelings of fear and doubt, or trust the facts and training that I received earlier and repel down the cliff.  It had been a long time since I was on the player’s side of things, and this cliff was forcing me to put my “leadership” teachings to the test.

Army Ranger leaders have their soldiers focus on the facts—not how they feel when performing difficult tasks. If we hope to get through trying circumstances, or coach others to do the same, we must focus on the situation’s facts, not our feelings.

2. Develop the person, not the title

“If we can’t trust you as a man, we won’t be able to trust you as a soldier,” said the veteran SEAL instructor. When I heard this, it reminded me of the importance of developing the person, not just the athlete, employee, or student.

The SEAL instructors believe it’s their calling to develop special people who do uncommon things.  If we hope to develop elite athletes, employees, or students, we must also develop the person. Excellence, selflessness, and discipline are ways of life—not something you can turn on and off. They must be lived and coached daily.

3. Expand your “court awareness”

“Pressure is something you feel when you don’t know what you are doing.” —Peyton Manning

As I watched Peyton Manning enter the baseball manager’s office, the manager said to me, “Rod, years ago, Peyton came to take batting practice here and he’s the only celebrity that has ever asked me if I could take him underneath to the batting cages for a short coaching session prior to him taking batting practice on the field that afternoon . . . that tells you a bit about who Peyton is.”

Manning’s preparation skills are well documented, just as we see in the quote above; however, as I sat in the office with him that day, another quality jumped out: court awareness.  As I listened to Manning speak, his awareness of his surroundings and others was palpable.  He acknowledged others in the room and included us in the conversation.  He honored the differences and similarities of baseball and football, and most importantly, he didn’t do or say anything inappropriate.  And with great court awareness comes both maturity and humility—qualities that are integral to being a strong leader.

Going forward, here are some questions to consider:

1. In times of stress, do I focus on facts or feelings?

2. Am I development driven or results driven?

3. Would the people I lead say that I have great “court awareness?”

* * *

Today only: get Rod Olson’s book, The Legacy Builder, along with three other titles for 70% off with the True Leadership Bundle.

Here’s what you’ll get:

Don’t wait: the True Leadership Bundle expires December 21 at 7:59 a.m. (EST)!
