I know this might seem like it’s coming out of the blue, but I feel compelled to reach out.
Maybe someone needs to hear this right now.
I want to offer a sort of…challenge.
*This is not a scam, this is not a sponsored post, no one knows that I’m writing this but you. Plus, my family and I do this every week, so you won’t be alone, you are joining me.*
I’m inviting you to go to this website and watch (for free) this guy, every Sunday for a year.
After you watch the first one, make a quick note of what you thought, even if it’s totally negative.
And then watch next Sunday (if you go to the website at 11am or 12pm there is a “live” message with a show, music, a concert, etc. It’s pretty nice. If you’ve missed the “live” message, there you can still watch a previous one.). Then watch the next Sunday. The challenge is to watch for a whole year…and I really want to know if it changed you for the better after a year of watching.
I have a friend who from the outside was an upstanding young person. But he had grown up in a very hurtful environment; no, he didn’t grow up in a warzone, or the ghetto, or in poverty; he had both parents, a roof over his head, his needs and desires satisfied. But from what he’s told me, he grew up on an emotional battlefield, positioned between a depressed mother and an adulterous father.
My friend grew up living a divided life; seeing his father’s infidelity and pornography while experiencing his mother’s despair. He was often left alone with only the TV for company. His mother later died when he was in his early teens and he felt even more alone. One night soon after his mother’s death, my friend got incredibly drunk, stumbled across a four lane highway, fell into a grocery store, and passed out. He was then apprehended by the police and taken to the hospital. He has no memory of even deciding to cross the highway; he remembers being outside and drunk for the very first time and then waking up in the hospital. That youngster who was filled with so much quiet turbulence grew into a man secretly brimming with pain and anger, which he controlled by becoming a workaholic.
Although my friend was a good person, he became cold, he objectified women, and more. Later in life, my friend stumbled across the messages that I’m showing you now, and his life changed tremendously. He is now happily married and he and his wife are expecting a baby. Everyday he strives to be an honorable man and from what I hear, he’s succeeding. His wife has also told me that he is still diligent but no longer a workaholic, that he works to be honorable in all his interactions with women, and that he is conquering his anger and his depression.
I do think that watching one of these, every Sunday, for a year, will change your life, for the better.
Want to see?
(Look for Joel; on Sundays you can watch live)
