Episode 16


Through the Tunnel to Live with Purpose and Passion

November 2, 2023


Our past gives us the lessons we take to heart, as well as the warnings and caution that drives our decisions to play it safe. It helps explains our present, but it does not and should not dictate our future.

In this episode of Run Toward The Roar, John talks about going through that tunnel of safety, to take risks, and to live with purpose and passion, instead of playing it safe and getting stuck in that zone. Practicing forgiveness and grace will never be easy, but it is a way to move forward in order to thrive.

What to expect in this episode:

01:08 – Human being versus human doing.

05:51 – Practicing forgiveness and grace is not easy.

08:14 – Spirituality functioning as a personality trait.

12:53 – Beliefs must stand up to questioning.

15:35 – On our past, present, and future

18:12 – Your power source has to be consistent and stable.

23:03 – Crisis intervention unties knots.

25:03 – The advantage and disadvantage of playing the victim role.

29:00 – The risk of bad outcome influences decision making

About John Robertson

John Robertson is one of the leading Coaches, Consultants, and Speakers that Leaders in the workplace look to “when things start to feel like they’re falling apart” due to issues with their staff, support systems, and company “ethos” (character and habit driven behaviors that either make or break an organization during times of crisis).

Driven by a “recognition of others’ strengths” and a deep-seated faith in their ability to find their way through even the most challenging of times— John creates an intensely inspiring environment for recovery, optimization, and triumph.

With over 30 years of experience leading large groups through his involvement in the church alongside shepherding public-service organizations (such as Townships, Firefighters, Police, and First Responders) through their own points of crisis and transition, John is counted on time and time again as “the steady voice of reason during even the most challenging of storms”.
