In the Loop with Andy Andrews

In this episode, we discuss a listener’s question regarding how to inspire kids to think outside the box and dream big.

 

Kids need to be comfortable being different.

  • Everyone wants different results, but no one wants to be different.

 

Teach them how to deal with problems.

  • Problems are a great way of connecting your kids with the things they want in life.
  • We want our kids to be people who glide over the surface of the sea of troubles.
  • Help them start thinking of problems as opportunities.

 

Figure out where your kids want to go.

  • Help them realize what they need to do to get there.

 

Tune in to hear why Andy tells his boys to use the word “yet.”

  • The danger starts in elementary school.

 

Kids need a lot of time with their parents.

  • You can teach them how to think.
  • It’s important to know what they think now and how they came to that conclusion.

In this episode, we discuss two listener questions regarding how to identify a reliable source and how to speak without notes.

 

How to Find a Credible and Reputable Source

Examine the “leaves” people drop.

  • In The Noticer, Jones talks about how much you can learn about a tree from one of its leaves. The same is true for people.
  • Look at someone’s actions long-term.

 

Be in a constant state of thought and prayer.

  • Hone your instincts so you can trust them when looking for truth.
  • No one is always right.

 

Secrets to Speaking Without Notes

You’re not just talking to people—you’re trying to impact their lives.

  • The more you can get away from notes, the better.
  • Great speakers connect their head and their heart.

 

Be friends with your audience.

  • Get off the stage and interact with them.
  • Speak directly to certain people.

 

Sit down to plan your speech.

  • Outline 3-4 points (along with an introduction and conclusion).
  • Cut down your notes.
  • Practice without using any notes.

In this episode, we discuss a listener’s question about helping two family members with different personality types get along and appreciate each other.

 

When you don’t understand the different personality types, you tend to have trouble getting along with certain people.

  • That makes it hard to be grateful for personality differences.

 

Have conversations with them (but not to tell them what they’ve done wrong).

  • Let them know how much you love and appreciate them.
  • 2 things must be present for them to change: 1. What’s in it for them and 2. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

 

Approach this in the context of helping them get what they want.

  • You can help them get along without them even knowing.

 

Tune in to hear how Andy helped a group of people get along who drove each other crazy.
