The Spiritual Scale

Do we all need to gain weight? Spiritual weight that is. If all spirit is matter, and all matter is weight then our spiritual growth must have some weight to it right? Regardless. Scales give direct numbers, but spiritual growth is more complex and comparative and less visible. When was the last time you weighed yourself on the spiritual scale?General outline. More to come.

  • “Let your soul delight in fatness” Isaiah 55:2 and 2 Nephi 9:51
  • Growth is like a ladder (JS), measurable with ever rung not a smooth escalator
  • 20% Already there, produced better results
    • Maids & Exercise
    • Car wash punch cards (8 or 10)
  • You can either String to fit or Grow to change
    • Extinct parrot on St. Lousious (student saved)
    • People motivated by identity not consequences
  • More growth, understand and progress by studying why people stayed not why people left (nurses in hospital, motivated by duty and sustained by desire to…)
  • You don’t just follow the feeling, you find it.
  • SMART Goals
  • Simple Starts
    • Yard signs (big and ugly, 87% rejected) to promote safe neighborhoods, but if presented with postcard first higher rate of acceptance
  • Mindset
    • Growth – effort
    • Fixed – Results
    • Expect failure. Falling is learning not failing
    • “From the atonement of jesus christ we can learn from out experiences without being condemned by them.” Bruce Hafen
    • School gave A,B,C & NY (not yet) instead of F’s teacher of the year over 48k
  • “Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should accomplish with your ability.” – John Wooden
