“Intentional living means making choices in your life based on your greatest values, not the habits of others.” — Brian Buffini

A recent Harris Poll revealed that only 31 percent of Americans consider themselves “happy.” Those who report they’re “happy” run counter to the cultural norms of our day.

In this episode, Brian Buffini outlines how to live a counter-culture lifestyle; that is, living in a positive and intentional way. At a time when it’s all too easy to get sucked into the negativity—whether it’s the 24-hour news cycle, the places we socialize or the people we socialize with—Brian offers tips to break free from status quo and experience the true freedom of living the good life. You’ll learn the three biggest dangers of our current societal norms, three strategies to avoid the pull of negativity and how living a counter-culture lifestyle can help in all areas of your life.

“We can all learn how to be more honoring.” — Miles McPherson

 Miles McPherson is used to performing in front of large audiences, first as a defensive back for the San Diego Chargers and now as pastor of the Rock Church. The path from football player to religious leader and influencer wasn’t an easy one; however, it’s one he openly shares with his congregation each week.

In this episode, Brian interviews Miles about his journey. Miles reveals how his determination to play football led him to the Chargers after being cut from the Rams; how the admiration he had for two of his teammates caused him to give up drugs and recommit to God and his girlfriend (now wife); and how he came to build the Rock Church in San Diego.

He also discusses his new book, “The Third Option: Hope for a Racially Divided Nation,” which delves into the concept of race and honor. You’ll learn why it’s important to honor those who are different from you, how one can be racially offensive but not be racist, and three tips for bringing more respect to all of your relationships. Click here to learn more about Miles’ Race for Unity on September 15.
