FLIP TO SIDE B AND BE BOLD AS A LION:  A SIMPLE, SURE-FIRE WAY TO MAXIMIZE YOUR CONFIDENCE WITH PEOPLE (KINDLE)

by Vaughn Kohler

The cliche, shop-warn message of the typical motivational speaker is that confidence with people is grounded in what you believe about yourself.  That is true, but incomplete. What is also vitally important is what we believes about others.  In this booklet, I draw from the wisdom of social psychology, Hebrew proverbs, and the 80’s band Survivor to argue for a better way to maximize your boldness.

ESSAYS AND STORIES

PILGRIM ON THE SOUND:  A SPIRITUAL ESSAY
by Vaughn Kohler

“If someone needed a spiritual renewal, he should avail himself of the traditional resources; prayer, Bible reading, attending a church service, that sort of thing. If you couldn’t discover the Lord in your own hometown, what made you think he would reveal himself more fully, simply because you had hopped a plane to France or hiked to a Catholic Church in Spain? No. While I thought taking a trip might improve my physical and emotional health, I scorned the idea that it could lead a soul closer to God. That is, until–as an embittered Christian and burned out pastor–I found myself with no other option than just getting away.”
