Mental and Emotional Health

Uncovering your "Why" is a must to discover what you were created for. However, you MUST become emotionally and mentally healthy if you want to unearth who you were truly created to be. The danger of not doing so will always keep you at a disadvantage. This, our thoughts about Jimbo Fisher leaving FSU, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

"If you don't have a why, you'll chase fantasies, jobs, and places, working on things you're not skilled at, only to find yourself disappointed at the end, blaming God and others because you don't have the life you thought you should have." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

 

"Every ill in life started with a broken, damaged emotion." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!


"If you lead out of your broken, damaged emotions to write new rules, when you achieve them, you'll realize it's so empty because it's not going to satisfy what you thought it was." @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

 

"Emotional health is an art form." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

Are you thankful for what's happening in your life? Majority of us have plenty to complain about. Not enough time, not enough money, too much weight, too much stress.

Learn more on this episode of the New Rules Weekly.

What Was I Created For?

What was I created for is a question we all ask ourselves at some point in life. It's more than just a vocation. It's a vision for your life that carries you beyond the mundane. On this week's New Rules Podcast, learn how to discover your calling.

Death to the Token Black Man

What has been the role of the minority in White Evangelicalism? This has been a hot topic these days in the evangelical world thanks to a conversion between Lecrae and The Truth's Table. According to some, it's time for minorities to leave the white evangelical community, while others believe there is enough progress being made to stick around. This, LiAngelo Ball getting arrested, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

Personal Manifesto

If you want to achieve your dreams and goal, you need a personal manifesto. A personal manifesto is your north, your compass, your map to get you where you want to go. A personal manifesto will also keep you from getting side tracked or filling your time with things that don't matter in the long run. Learn to write your manifesto, Adrian's feelings on Halloween, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

Necessity of Institution

What is happening to institutions today? It seems that we're fighting to tear down institutions wherever we go. Institutions are any established law, practice, or custom. In America, we've got a lot of those. How do we write new rules where government, education, and patriotism have been the norm for so long? This, Adrian's beef with HBCUs, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

"HBCUs have a place in the future but they must pivot and become diverse in students, faculty, and thought." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

"Institutions should be challenged but they're needed for the flourishing of society." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

"In order to write new rules, you've got to create institutions." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

Lecrae: The Cost of Writing New Rules

To write new rules, it's going to cost you something. Lecrae has learned that recently by seeing a less than stelar week 1 album sales for All Thing Work Together and a dip in concert attendance. If you've followed this artist, you've seen how he's become outspoken on race and injustices happening in America. With it affecting his career, is it really worth it? Adrian and Billy discuss their thoughts, top books they recommend this year, who they'd like to see Lecrae collaborate with, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

Creating New Rules in Your City with Adam Mabry

On this week's podcast, we sit down with Pastor Adam Mabry of Aletheia Church in Boston to discuss how he has written new rules over the past 7 years in a city that's very opposed to Christianity. It's easy to make excuses about how we're not making a dent. If you want to write new rules, you've got to figure out how to bring change even when the odds are against you. This, Trump's shooting form, and more on this weeks episode of the New Rules Podcast.
