In the Loop with Andy Andrews

This week, we’re celebrating our 200th episode with a deeper look at the items in my office, and more specifically, what I keep within arm’s reach at my desk.

 

You might look at my desk and not know why some of these things are here—and you might also not know what these things are!

 

Tune in to this weeks full episode to hear which of these objects remind me of:

  • The fact I can choose my thinking, and if I’m scared, that isn’t from God.
  • Ingenuity.
  • The history of our country and that there are things that seem impossible, but with the right thought process, impossible things can be made simple.
  • Things last even if they’re covered up or buried. We need to make sure that the things we create are of great value.
  • While things are permanent, they can still be shaped.
  • There is always a way to figure something out.

On this week’s episode, we’re continuing our visit inside my office and discussing why it looks the way it does.

 

People have made excuses for themselves and other people based on environment.

       As an adult, you have control over your environment.

       You are never trapped, although you may choose to think you’re trapped.

       If you understand that your thinking is the foundation of everything, that gives you control. You want to achieve “the best.”

       The objects in my office spur a specific thought. Everything has a story and lesson.

 

Everywhere I look, I want to produce gratefulness and belief in my spirit.

       I have to produce the best in writing and speaking topics. To do that, I know what kind of thinking produces the best.

       When I am in an ungrateful or aggravated state of mind, could I possibly come in and create the best?

       I urge you to not have the same kind of office that everyone has.

 

Tune in to the full episode to hear about the personal letters from around the world Andy hangs in his office, and why they’re almost disappearing from view!

 

Please send us pictures of what this episode prompts you to do with your office or workspace; also let us know the state of mind you were after.

On this week’s episode, we’re recording from my office in Orange Beach, Alabama, and talking about the “wall of influence” that sits across from my desk.

 

I have been around people successful in entertainment, business, and politics, and have seen them hit a point in their career where they turned kind of monstrous.

  • It’s an odd world to live in where people say, “You’re great. You changed my life.”
  • If you’re not prepared to deal with that, I see how you could turn into an idiot!
  • I have an “influence wall” to remind me where I’m from. Whatever it is that I am, these people are the ones who deserve the credit.
  • Every time I look at that wall, I am reminded of an umbrella of authority.

 

If you look at peoples lives that have gotten out of control after having a lot of success, its because they have no authority in their lives.

  • While we watch “heroes” in our modern day, everyone thinks they’re great until we find something out that’s leaked to the public.
  • To our kids, that’s one more notch of disappointment that makes them think, “Oh, well that’s how people really are.”
  • Everyone on my influence wall is on my board of directors, but not everyone on my board of directors is on the wall.
  • The board of directors is something that ebbs and flows.

 

If you have an influence wall, take a picture of it and email it to us at InTheLoop@AndyAndrews.com.

 

Tune in to the full episode to learn about some of the people Andy considers major influences and authority figures in his life.

On this week’s episode, I answer a listener question about people who have a different style of communication than yours.

 

When you get down to the way people communicate, there are so many differences.

  • I will never forget the time a friend and his wife were over at our house, and Polly called the boys twice to come greet the guests.
  • I lean my head in the room and let them know their mother has called them twice and they need to get up.
  • They both look at each other and they’re going, “Dad, she didn’t call us…” I ask the boys to go wash their hands and tell Polly that the boys say she didn’t call them.
  • Our friend laughs and says, “That’s just a guy thing.”

 

There are differences between boys and girls.

  • Our friends have two boys and two girls.
  • They said all four of them can be watching TV and the girls will hear their mom calling, but unless she gets in front of the TV and gets the boys’ attention, their focus won’t be drawn away.

 

Tune in to the full episode for further insight on communication gaps, and to hear Andy’s hilarious account of his genius” brother-in-law trying to explain the latest TV technology to a tech-averse Andy.
