In the Loop with Andy Andrews

In this episode, we discuss a listener’s follow-up question to last week’s episode about being offended.

 

Make sure no one in your family is easily offended.

  • If you want to raise kids who become great adults, teach them not to take offense.
  • You can never have the best for your family without knowing the truth.

 

Easily offended people are often unwilling to have conversations about it or look at any other side.

  • The truth is only one thing.
  • Something can be true, but not the truth.
  • The quality of your questions always determines the quality of your answers.

 

Tell them you’re sorry they feel that way.

  • Let them know you are sorry they feel offended, but don’t apologize for telling the truth.

 

 

Tune in to hear about the conversation Andy had with someone who was offended that he hunts deer.

In this episode, we discuss the impact one seemingly small thing has on our ability to move forward in our careers.

 

Taking offense can keep you from success.

  • When we take offense, it only produces a feeling. You ultimately choose whether you take offense to something or brush it off.
  • Offended people often feed off their offense and their anger builds over time—and no one likes to be around angry people.

 

This is a societal problem on a lot of fronts.

  • We live in a world that is increasingly obsessed with how people feel.
  • Leaders who have proven their common sense and value can no longer make decisions without threats and demands from people who take offense.
  • While we are entitled to our own opinions, we aren’t entitled to our own facts.

 

Tune in to hear the story of a high school that had to change their mascot because it was potentially offensive.

In this week’s episode, a listener asks for Andy’s best advice for a first-time dad. People will tell you they’ll grow up fast…and that’s true. • As an older dad, Andy paid attention to every moment he could—and his boys still grew up fast. “Discipline them while they're young, or you’ll ruin their lives.” – King Solomon • Be harder on your children when they’re little so they know to follow your first request. • This will strengthen your relationship with them as they grow older. • They’ll learn to practice self-discipline at an early age. Tune in this week to hear what Andy always does with his kids every night (even now that they’re older).

On this week's episode, we discuss a listener's question on discerning when to persist and when God is closing a door. Persisting without exception means when there isn’t a way, you find a way. The Traveler’s Gift was turned down 51 times before it was finally published. Sometimes all you need is an idea, but you can’t get one if you quit. The quality of your questions determines the quality of your answers. Most people default to 3 main excuses when they hit a wall: money, time, and leadership. God gave you your talents for a reason. When God gives you a vision of how your family is supposed to live, how much money you’re supposed to make, and how much influence you’re supposed to have, He doesn’t change his mind. God doesn’t teach you to swim just to watch you drown. Tune in this week to hear the crazy story of how The Traveler’s Gift finally got published.
