In the Loop with Andy Andrews

In this episode, we answer a listener’s question on getting students to believe they’re learning helpful information.

 

People can only accomplish what they believe they can accomplish.

  • I call this “belief imposition.”
  • What you believe controls how you behave—whether it’s true or not.

 

If you want someone to change what they believe, you need to know how change works.

  • As harsh as it sounds, people don’t implement your suggestions because they don’t believe you.
  • Two elements are required for true change: 1. What’s in it for them, and 2. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Your presentation of these elements is key.

 

Tune in to hear about a conversation Andy had at dinner with some military officials.

In this episode, we discuss the keys to helping children who’ve recently lost a loved one.

 

Talk to them about what happened and what’s going to happen next.

  • Explain to them their loved one’s last breath on Earth is their first breath in Heaven.
  • Let them know they’ll be sad for a while, but the pain will go away.

 

Help fill in the gap.

  • Teach them things their loved one would have taught them if they were still around.
  • Let them know you’re there for them.

 

Don’t be afraid to ask them how they’re doing.

  • Ask them if they think about their loved one.
  • Tell them how their loved one impacted your life.

 

Tune in to hear what Andy recently said to two children who lost their father.

In this episode, we discuss a listener’s question on helping society change its habits and focus.

 

Mass change requires individual change.

  • Each person must come to his or her own conclusion.
  • There are two components of change: 1) What’s in it for me, and 2) Proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

 

We set an example for others.

  • People examine us by the fruit we produce.

 

If you understand why a principle works, you unlock its true power.

  • You can explain it to others and use it across nearly every aspect of your life.
  • Get to “the bottom of the pool.”

 

Tune in to hear how one of Andy’s books helped provide the "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" a father and son needed to repair their relationship.

On this week’s episode, we discuss a listener’s question about what Andy did to prepare his boys for exposure to pornography.

 

Start preparing your kids for adulthood early on.

  • Explain to them why you make the decisions you do regarding what you watch, read, and listen to.
  • Point to your spouse as an example of someone your kids should marry.

 

Talk to your kids about where they want to go in life.

  • Teach them to make choices that move them toward what they want.
  • Things they feed their mind can either move them upstream, downstream, or keep them in the same place.

 

Tune in to hear the conversation Andy had with his son, Adam, about drinking from a creek.
