10 minutes | Jun 10, 2021
When we started this podcast,we had one thing in mind, helping people. Living the Freedom Life Podcast is an introductory product of our Certified Coaching Practice found at KyleMcMurray.com. I am not considered a psychotherapist, but we do offer help through certified online Coaching sessions. We talk about where you are right now and where you want to be. We help you get there. Our price-point is at or below most insurance co-pays. We're affordable. Bottom line, we want to help people. This is not about money or being salesy about Coaching. We don’t train other Coaches or sell a Coaching program like most others do. We don’t herd people through some cookie cutter program. You are an individual, and our approach is the same in your journey. We put together a unique approach for every client. We have some amazing clients, we have a great team and we have an easy onboarding process that gets all the office stuff taken care of. We just want to help people who have an interest in being better than yesterday. And because you are here, that means you're one too. Welcome to Living the Freedom Life Podcast, this is episode 100. Today, I’m just Grateful.

Keep a File
Remember last week’s episode about what you drew on a piece of paper? Well, it caused a response that I didn’t expect. As usual, I felt like we should talk about it today. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast and this episode is the last of the double digits, we are on Episode number 99 and today’s title is “Keep a File”.

There are 4
If you’ve ever attended one of our classes or had very many coaching sessions, you’ve heard me say that “People only fall into 2 categories; people that either bring me closer to Jesus, or the other ones”. Well, as any good coach would say, “Everyone needs a coach”. And I’m not immune to that statement. I’m included in “everyone”. Well, MY coach told me about 4 categories of people. I want to share them with you today. So, get a piece of paper and something to write with. Yeah, we are going analog today. Get ready! It doesn’t have to be fancy, just a yellow sticky note is all. Maybe a sharpie. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life Podcast, this is episode 98 and today, I’m telling you, “There Are 4”.

Handling the Truth
Some people can’t handle the truth about themselves or others. Some of you know me well. Through the years, you’ve watched me grow, walked with me, encouraged me, sharpened me, there’ve been some correction and a few swift kick in the pants. Some of you know me through our Coaching practice, and as you know, as candid as I am and as open as I am about my life, we’ve grown to know each other pretty well in a short amount of time. There are some of you who listen to this podcast and don’t know me at all, . . . yet. And that’s okay. In fact, that’s why we produce this podcast, not only for me to open up, to share. You get to know me and then, I get to know you; for us to sharpen each other. I love getting to know new people. But there is a risk involved in that. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast. This is Ep 97 and today we are talking about Handling the Truth

Did you ever see the bottom of an old glass bottle or can? You could get yourself a shiny nickel if you turned it back in. To a 5 year old, that’s like free money! And that is a great example of redeeming something. You turn in something that is used and you get something in return that has value! Redemption is an important concept to understand as a follower of Christ, but if we only look at it through “Coke Bottle lenses”, we may be setting ourselves up for a great disappointment if we are not careful. You are listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast and today we are talking about Redemption.

Today is an extremely special day in the McMurray household. There will be consequences for me later, but I just can’t help myself. I have a story to tell. It is a foundational part of my personal Freedom Journey and I want to share it with you today. It has a lot to do with this song. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life Podcast and this is Ep 95, Love Struck.

Our perspective on things and the world around us is crucial. The way we see things sets the stage on how we make choices. Our choices are what assist in what we call “Life navigation”. Our choices steer us in one direction or another. So, whether we see the glass as half full or half empty is a pretty big deal. You would think. Well, I’ve never been accused as being normal. So, let me challenge you to look at this a little differently today. And it might change the way you see your day to day life. Because that is what we are about. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast, and today we are talking about the Glass being Half What.

Love and Fear
Even if you’ve never cracked open a Bible in your life, you’ve probably heard the scripture in 1 John 4 that tells us “God is Love”. Well, to put it bluntly, we’ve lost sight of that. We have forgotten it. We’ve watered this section of scripture down so much, that it has become dangerous, spiritual malnutrition, to the point that we may not know what Love is. Our view of what Love is has become so delicate and conditional. Love is meant to be powerful, robust, strong and a powerful transforming force. I don’t believe most people get to experience that. They wind up truly identifying with this song. We are so desperate to experience this, we may be confusing it with something else. Something much different. Something drastically opposite of what it really is and meant to be. Fear. When I say it like that, it seems outlandish. Well, maybe not. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast and this is episode number 93. Today we're talkin about Love and Fear.

The Growth Battle
We are creatures of habit. I know that you know this and probably have quite a few examples of this truth in your life. Some, you would even be willing to admit. Habit is one of the enemies of Growth. I want to share with you today a topic that we commonly face at Kyle McMurray Coaching, and that is the unspoken, outwardly silent but inwardly violent battle for your Growth. I’ve recently fought this battle and I want to share it with you. Sometimes that's the best coaching, just sharing my story. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life Podcast, and today we are talking about The Growth Battle.

The week after Easter. Yes, I am grateful for His resurrection and I’m convinced that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most important event in history. That being said, I’m a “Rubber Meets the Road” type of guy, where “The proof is in the puddin” as my Grandad would say. This week I would like to talk about, well for 40 days after Jesus walked out of the tomb, He spent it with the Disciples. By sticking fingers in His wounds, walking through walls, and assuring some pretty amazed faces that He was indeed, alive. Along with that, were some residual facts. Like conquering death, overcoming the enemy, Healing, and now…”What’s Next?” This week, like every week, I would like to talk about the answer to that question. “What’s Next? You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, this is episode 91 What’s Next

Pebble in My Shoe
Have you ever had a pebble in your shoe? You know, like a small rock or something hard inside your shoe? It can be really annoying rolling around in there. I mean, you can push through it. You know, mind over matter and all that. But don’t worry, it will still be there later to surprise you. Who wants to take the time, who HAS the time to take off their shoe and take care of a pebble inside? There are times that I’m convinced, I don’t. So, on I go. Walking through my day, with this small rock in my shoe. Jabbing my foot every time I step. Hmmmm. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, Ep 89 “Pebble in My Shoe”.

I was setting up a new calendar for our Coaching Practice and with all of the options, it asked me if I wanted the first day of the week to be on a Sunday, or Monday. At first I didn’t think much about it, I’ve just always chosen Sunday. Because of the old calendars that always hung on the wall. But then, as you know me, I started asking questions. . . You're listening to Living the Freedom Life Ep 88 and today we are talking about The Sabbath.

Are You Good Enough
Okay, before we get started with today's episode I want to teach you a little something that's very important to me in my coaching practice. Point your head, right at your temple. And repeat after me. “This is my thinker. And my thinker is not my knower.” Now, point at your heart and repeat after me. “This is my knower. And my knower is not my thinker.” I know it seems elementary but stay with me. Point back to your head, “My thinker tries to be my knower. But my thinker is only my thinker. It’s not my knower.” Now point to your heart, or your knower, “My knower doesn’t really need my thinker to know. Even when my thinker wants to be right, I still know.” Now, that little exercise my friends, will come in handy later. It’s okay, You can rewind so your thinker can catch up. On today's topic, Do you ever feel like you're just not good enough? That life requires more than you have. In many areas of my life, I mean, this is real. I feel like I don't have what it takes, often. Most of the time. There have been books written about this, and there's definitely a lot of podcasts on this topic. But lately I've been thinking about this differently. Because not only am I a Certified Life Coach, I am also a client. There are a lot of days where I feel that I don’t measure up. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast # 86 and today we're asking the question, are you good enough.

An Open Hand
I’m a starter. Those of you that know me well, already know that. In my life I have been fortunate enough to have an 50k foot view on some really cool projects. But that also has a dark side to it. You see, I’m a starter. I get excited about things and I sometimes see a vision clearly. I find it easy to communicate that vision. I’m a communicator and some things just come natural to me. They fall into place easily and that’s exciting, it’s invigorating and some say that I’m a little too intense when those things are working in me. But what happens when the dust settles? What happens after I follow what is said in Hab 2:2 when the vision is written down and explained and communicated? What then? What happens after it’s started? How do you get past that? I want to share with you a struggle I’ve had for years, and the answer is quite simple. Welcome to Living the Freedom Life This is Episode 85 and today we’ll talk about the solution of walking with an Open Hand.

Something’s Gotta Change
Have you ever reached a point where you've told yourself “Something's Gotta Change”? With everything going on nowadays, it may be a more common statement than I realized. There's a lot of tension in our society right now. Including the weather, power outages, food shortages, boiling restrictions on water, Patience wears thin. Intolerance is at an all-time high with our society. Everywhere you look, there is a flavor of division, it’s everywhere. Unity seems like a pipe dream. We are a divided nation and it’s much more than politics. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, ep 84 and today’s title is “Something’s Gotta Change”.

Embracing Failure Alone
I don’t like to fail. I’m sure you don’t either. But I have and I do fail. A lot. It’s difficult for me to keep moving, to keep trying after I realize that I have failed. Sometimes, I refuse to see it when it's right in front of me. The most dangerous part about this is that most times when we fail, we face it alone. You're listening to Living the Freedom Life, ep 83 and today we are talking about Embracing Failure Alone.
