Two For Flinching

You are going to get punched, so let it be for trying, failing, and learning rat

 

I hate games where you can get punched for doing something that is natural for you to do. There’s the game where you try to get people to look at a circle you make with your fingers. There is the Door Knob game where you have to touch a door knob immediately after you’ve passed gas or you get pummeled. The worst is when you flinch and get the ‘ol two for flinching.

Flinching is the norm. We get an idea and we wait, and wait, and wait, then we flinch and pass on it  and we get punched down the road because we didn’t move when we should have moved.

We will always pay the price for not puling the trigger when we should. What are you flinching on right now in your life or ministry?

  • Family vacation
  • Leadership development
  • Disciplining a Student or Adult Leader
  • Launching that program.
  • Stopping that program
  • Starting a new habit
  • Stopping an old habit
  • Changing Up Wednesday Night
  • Talking To Your Pastor About That Raise

We all deal with something we are flinching on. I recently read the 25 Tech Fails of 2010. If you look at the companies that failed the most, they are successful, well established companies, that took risks. Do they care that it didn’t go well? Probably. Did it cost them a ton of money to launch? Yep. Will they be listed in next years top 2010 list? I hope so, because it at least says they are trying. The one’s who didn’t get mentioned are flinching, waiting for the “no fail zone” to widen so they can get away unscathed.

I like this quote by Google CEO Eric Schmidt, he told the  BBC. “Remember, we celebrate our failures. This is a company where it’s absolutely okay to try something that’s very hard, have it not be successful, and take the learning from that.”

You are going to get punched, so let it be for trying, failing, and learning rather than for flinching.

Living The Dream - Paul Turner

Paul Turner, youth pastor and youth ministry coach/trainer/speakerI’ve written and re-written so may of these, I have decided to try and sum up my ministry in 6 words:

Loves To See Youth Pastors Succeed.

That’s what I’m about. It’s because of my 29 year love affair with God and my 20 year infatuation with youth ministry that I want help you and your youth ministry succeed. Sometimes it takes one good idea, sometimes a few. If I can help you through resources, speaking, or training please do not hesitate to call and ask questions 205-260-7229, tweet me at PaulTurnerToo, or catch me on Facebook.

I've always wanted to be a youth pastor and minster to teens at all levels. Youth pastors, along with camp counselors, have been my heroes. I have been ministering to students now for 20 years and started a free resource sight called The Disciple Project at www.thediscipleproject.net. Come by and say hello.

I live in Birmingham, AL. with my wife and thee great kids, two of which are teenagers.

Hey Brother Turner I have

Hey Brother Turner

I have recently been placed over the youth department, and am really enjoying the kids. But I could really use some help getting and keeping them interested. We volunteered to take on this task, out of necessity. We had a handful of youth in our church, and nothing for them. My pastor realized that if we dont do something, we were going to lose the ones we did have. So my husband and I volunteered. But we have not been offered any training or helpful resources. So your website has been a lifesaver. I am currently reading a very helpful book by Scott Wilcher, "The Orphaned Generation". I just wanted to thank you for all wonderful resources available on your site. God Bless

Only those with luck succeed

Only those with luck succeed in the first try itself. Most of the successful businessmen started from zero to the top companies from the world. Steve jobs started Apple in a garage. He was fired from his own company. But he didn’t stop there. Look at what he made. hotels in catalina

Decomposition of polynomial

Decomposition of polynomial into two more factors is called factorization. It is usually done in algebra as well in numbers. For example the factorization of polynomial x2 − 4 is as (x − 2)(x + 2). It is pertinent to mention here that final answer obtained through factorization is always in product shape.

The basic theme for which the factorization is done is that the provided polynomial has to be reduced into basic building blocks or into irreducible polynomials. Some time fundamental theorem is also used in order to factoring the polynomial. The terminology used as opposite of polynomial factorization is called expansion. The final answer obtained through expansion is always got in the shape of sum of terms. When we will use fundamental theorem, every positive integer greater than one has a unique prime factorization. I will make factorization with the following methods with the help of videos:-

(a) By taking common

(b) By mid term break method

(c) By applying formula
