Doing Something Religiously Without Being Religious

When a call for change is needed to prevent a worse outcome, we view the cost in terms of the probability of that event happening in the near future. In most cases, we often pay a higher price, not because we did not see it happening, but because we mistakenly believe it would not happen.

In this episode of Run Toward The Roar, John touches on the topic of doing something religiously without being religious, and how it relates to thriving. He also talks about the different kinds of love as a power source and shares his very interesting definition of real love. He also gives a lesson on whom you should be nurturing relationships with and gives an application challenge towards the end of the conversation.
