BB&JT: Plea and thank you for ratings and review & for spreading the word via social media and word of mouth…

BB –  Today we’re talking about “Good Boasting” .. What kind of boasting really gets under your skin?

 

JT answers

 

  1. Bob – POINT: Nobody likes to hear someone brag. It’s quite sickening to be around someone who always takes the conversation to their accomplishments and acquisitions. There is something good about which to boast however, when you boast of the Lord Jesus Christ and His accomplishment.

 

Galatians 6:14 (ESV) — 14 But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

  1. JT This is the PowerBreak Podcast, I’m JT along with Bob Brubaker and this is the  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…

 

  1. JTQuestion ONE - FROM THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE….

 

To boast or not to boast – when is it OK and when is it SIN?.

  1. Bob

 

Luke 18:9–14 (ESV) — 9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Matthew 5:3 (ESV) — 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

1 Corinthians 1:30–31 (ESV) — 30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Galatians 6:14 (ESV) — 14 But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

 

  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT” –

 

Sounds like we need to guard against being a “self-indulging” braggart… so how can we do that from a mental aspect? I guess what do we keep in mind to keep us from going over the top?

 

  1. Bob

1 Corinthians 4:7 (ESV) — 7 For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?

Deuteronomy 8:18 (ESV) — 18 You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

James 1:17 (ESV) — 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

1 Corinthians 1:30–31 (ESV) — 30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Jeremiah 9:24 (ESV) — 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….

 

Let’s talk about OVER TRAINING. How can a person recognize it and what can a person do?

((( JT’s snide remark about Bob overtraining – “something you have a great deal of experience with… teehee”)))

 

  1. BB & JT discuss ---

 

First – You can’t over train if you aren’t training… (haha)

 

SIGNS OF OVERTRAINING – when you are pushing pushing pushing

  • Diminished performance or stalled progress
  • Erratic resting HR
  • Low HRV ((WHOOP score))
  • Emotional volatility
  • High perceived exertion when it’s really not – difficulty high efforts
  • Low motivation
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Illness or injury

What to do….

  • REST
  • Work on balance of training and life
  • Work on diet – tune up

 

Bob’s final comment – It takes discipline ….

 

Point: DISCIPLINE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE --- in all aspects of life
