Into The Curve
About This Show
Show Info: My name is Dave Burnett. I’m the voice behind the stories you hear on the podcast. I launched this podcast in the hopes that I might reach just one person who is looking for some inspiration the same way I was. I started reading inspirational books myself as a part of a new morning routine in the summer of 2016. This was the start of the journey to reinvent myself. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got problems. One of those problems is there is too much negativity in my day. The news. The commute. The everyday battle to get, and stay, ahead. So I implemented a new routine with the help of some great people. It helps me get my day started off right. Here it is: I wake up, swing my legs so my feet touch the floor, and spend 1 minute thinking about my purpose for the day. It doesn’t have to be anything big or noble, just a simple “Why am I getting out of bed at this ungodly hour?” Then I get up, walk to a quiet place, and meditate for 10 minutes. This is a period of reflection on what I’m grateful for. Again, nothing huge, just the little things that I otherwise take for granted. My wife. My kids. The chair I’m sitting in. The fact I have a roof over my head and don’t have to sit in the rain. Then I read an inspirational story, and man does it sound rough. So I read it again, and I record the second reading (which is what you are hearing). Following that, I journal for 10 minutes. I journal about all the things I was meditating about. The little things I’m grateful for. Somehow, writing it down, makes it all that much more real. Daily exercise follows this, then I shower and am ready for my day. Whatever it may bring I’m positive and optimistic. By starting the day this way, my outlook on life has changed tremendously. So why did I record the stories and put them online? I found that just reading the stories in my head was great, but I’m more of an auditory person. So reading them out-loud was even better. At this point unfortunately I was so busy trying to make the sounds from my mouth match the words on the page, I wasn’t getting the full benefit and power their either. So by recording the readings I could listen to my own voice (which sounds a LOT like the one in my head) telling me these great stories. Thus, I got the best of both worlds. After doing this for a while, a number of people told me I should share the stories. So I did. And here we are. I hope you find as much inspiration in listening to the.
