The Overcomer’s University Opportunity

I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to Overcomer’s University and tell you the reason why I have created this opportunity.  I believe that each individual has a personal destiny.  In fact I believe YOU WERE CREATED TO BE AN OVERCOMER!! You are an unique and destined individual and it is time you start living like it.


Let’s get honest for just a moment – we so often face challenges that hinder our forward progress and cause us to end up stuck in the proverbial mud! This is why I created Overcomer’s University.   I am tired of seeing good people with a good future ahead of them getting run over by the challenges of life, settling for the status quo.

In order for us to be an overcomer in life, our attitude about life and the circumstances we face, has to change and Overcomer’s University is designed to help you do just that. Overcomers University is a powerful and personal approach to overcoming and finding success, involving a series of personal, instructional and inspirational sessions that I have created that will help you become. As many of you know, I was born missing my left hand and I have had to face challenges that have taught me how to be an overcomer in life.  These challenges have shaped who I am and I want to share these experiences and overcoming principles with you.

I have been privileged to speak to hundreds of thousands of students, young adults, parents and leaders across the world with my message about what it takes to be an overcomer.  Now I have this passion to pass these concepts and principles on to you inside of Overcomer’s University.

I invite you to journey along with me as I deliver strategies on how you can move from where you are to where you know you should be.  Each week I will launch a brand new video that will be available in OU along with mp3s, tools, resources and special video interviews with overcomer’s from all walks of life. Take a look at just some of what will be made available in OU:

  • How To Form The Correct Attitude & Action in Life
  • The Power of Perspective
  • Finding Your True Identity
  • Creating Healthy Relationships
  • Dealing with Failure
  • Becoming what we are destined to become
  • Overcoming Addictions
  • Finding true success in life and so much more…

As you learn from me and my OU team, you’ll gain an understanding of the true meaning of the word success and how it’s not only attainable but applicable to everyone no matter where you are in life right now. If you are a student, recent graduate, professional athlete, coach, stay at home parent, government, business, or ministry leader, Overcomer’s University will equip you with the strategies you need to ascend to the next level.

Our very first class is opening NOW and it is called NOBODY IS BORN AVERAGE.  I promise that you will want to be a part of this first launch of OU.  Sign up TODAY and let’s get on the way to becoming an OVERCOMER!  The cost is only $29.97 for a limited time and this gives you access to every lesson, video, mp3, document, workbook and training you need to become an overcomer!  Plus, just for becoming a member you will receive a free copy of my latest book, The HandBook: Five Forces To Form Your Future and will be invited into a private Facebook Group just for members of OU!

I believe in you and I believe it’s time for you to change your world.

The Power of Expectation

It is hard to believe but we are less than 40 days till Christmas!  WOOHOO!!!  I love this time of year.  I love the time spent with friends and family, I love the change in the season, I love the message that Christmas brings and I love the memories of holidays past that come flooding through my mind during this time.


I remember as a child impatiently waiting for Christmas to get here so we could open all the presents that I was expecting to receive.  I had already circled everything I desired in the Sears catalogue and made sure my parents saw it as I left it open on the kitchen table!  It was a time of expectation and wondering.

Some things never change…

I have been awake since early this morning, watching the sun rise behind the hills, casting an orange glow across the sky.  I am not fully awake but I have this burning expectation in my spirit today.  I awoke with a question in my soul early this morning. What am I expecting God to do today?

I know it is simple but yet it makes me stop and think about it – What do I EXPECT?

Let’s define what expectation is for just a moment:

expectation |ˌekspekˈtā sh ən|a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future

A strong belief that something will happen!!  I want to have this type of awareness as I step into this day.  You may be getting ready to go to church services this morning, so I would ask of you – what are your expecting?  Are you just fulfilling religious duties this morning or just waiting for another “free” day to come to a close so you can hit the ground running again tomorrow?  Or is there an expectation that today could be unlike any other time in your life?  A day to expect and receive!  A day to experience the goodness of life and God and all that He has brought your way.

There is a major theme that runs throughout the Word of God – CHANGE!  There is written throughout the scriptures evidence that God desires change in us.  He desires to see us give him our filthy garments so HE can clothe us with righteousness. HE promises us a GREAT EXCHANGE – give me your brokenness and I can turn it into wholeness – your emptiness and I will fill your life to abundance!  Over and over again there is this idea that emerges out of the Word of a God that can take the shattered things of life and totally make something new out of it.

Why would I want to come into contact with The Creator and leave without some sort of change in my life?  I think I will EXPECT God to do what He does best – CHANGE LIVES!

There is Power in Expectation!!





Success Can Be Messy

In my reading this morning, I came across a passage of scripture I found to be intriguing.  Throughout the Book of Proverbs many of the words speak of what it takes to gain success in life.  You have scriptures that speak to the importance of working hard in order to become successful, while others deal with the vital importance of gaining wisdom as the key component to understanding life and gaining perspective on what we are called to do and become.


There are many themes running through the collection of Proverbs, in fact there are too many to discuss in this one post, but today something stood out to me that caused me to pause and jot down a few thoughts.  Take a closer look at this verse:

Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean,
    but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox. (Prov. 14:4 ESV)

On the surface this seems to just be another random tangent Solomon travels down, but look closer and let it settle into your spirit –

  • No oxen = Clean stall!  This sounds rationale and wise.  Makes total sense!!  To put up with messy farm animals like an oxen is a lot of work and causes quite a stench.  I grew up living out in the country in Idaho and we had cows from time to time and they take a lot of work and MAN do they like to mess things up!  Plus they stink to high heaven.  The easiest thing to do, the thing that seems to make sense on the surface, is to just not have any of these messy creatures in the first place!!
  • But here is the deal: No oxen = Nothing to help bring about the harvest you are planning on in your future!!  Success may take work with all of its messiness but it is the messiness, the hard work, the trouble you may have to go through, that provides the avenue for success.

We often do not like the struggle that accompanies success but it is the only way for it to come about.  Learning to work through the difficult situations of life requires patience and perspective and both of those things require diligence to acquire.

Just a few thoughts I jotted down.  Hope you have a great day!
