Some Understanding in Difficult Times: Jamal Patterson Ep 122

The Gospel of Fire is about understanding that everyone suffers. We are going to listen to other people’s stories of suffering and get some tools so that when that time comes for us, we are prepared. Every sword is forged in hot fire and the Gospel of Fire will teach you how to forge your sword. I want to help you live your best life possible which comes through understanding that you’re going to fail, that the people in your life are very important, and that we can do this together. There is no such thing as a self made man. Somewhere, at sometime, someone helped him. TGOF will help us understand that we need to be on both ends of this conversation, be there for people when they need help, and ask for help when we need it. This does not make you weak, connection with people will make you strong beyond belief.
