Dave Arnold is a return guest on the podcast this week. He was previously in episode #35, in which he talks about his book, “Pilgrims of the Alley.”
Dave Arnold has written another book: “It’s Possible: How to Thrive, Not Just Survive.”
He shares the story of how he began the journey in his own life that led to this book, starting with a sermon he was preparing: “The Impossible Becoming Possible.”
He refers to the story of Hugo Cabret, who was an orphaned boy that lived in a train station in Paris during the early 1930’s. He became engaged in rebuilding a automaton. He deduces that the little mechanical man was just waiting to do what he’s supposed to do – waiting for his purpose.
Dave also shares what he calls Destiny Deterrents – those things that try to stop us from fulfilling our destiny.
He has a great quote and lesson:
Well it’s time to unlearn and relearn what we’ve learned.
This reminds me of a quote by Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back:
In closing, he shares a little bit about the Levels of Languishing – those things that cause us to lose vigor or strength.
