Our Hearts’ Desire… Are You Being Called to Greater Things?

This one is deep. And it truly comes full circle. It is with a former client whom I’ve trained for years when he was playing college & pro baseball. But in the span of 30-days, Bob Wheatley lost his dream, career, and even girlfriend. As life spiraled downward and he contemplated his true purpose, he went deeper on his faith & values. And now, a few years later, he has not only written a book that is going to IMPACT a lot of people, he’s found his true calling to help other men & women discover their deepest divine purpose as well. Heck, my hope is that this episode touches your soul and spirit like it did mine and allows you to THINK & GO DEEP…and restore even more peace, joy, & happiness in your soul.

It is so great to reconnect with Bob Wheatley on today’s SHOW. Despite a standout career as a pitcher at USC and a pro baseball career in the Toronto Blue Jays and St. Louis Cardinals organization, he has gone from Pro Baseball Player to full IMPACT- Player.

Here is what we discuss today…

  • The journey to pro baseball…and the dangers of dream-chasing.
  • Baseball, Business, and girl all gone…and all within 30-days. WOW.
  • How to understand your purpose and reason for existing, regardless of your age.
  • Why he wrote the book “Our Hearts Desire…How our Stories Reveal the Thing we Want Most”, who it’s for, and why you might want to read it.
  • What does “Called to ‘Greater’ things” even mean.
  • The 3 things needed to achieve catharsis.
  • How God sometimes uses pain to shape us, even though none of us like going through pain.
  • The battle of flesh and spirit and how to ultimately allow the Spirit to win. ]
  • Why Bob has a passion for helping young Christians grow closer to God and experience the love and connection they are missing.
