Extraordinary Zone — Interview With Denny Katona

Some­times tran­si­tion can be dif­fi­cult. Often times when we ded­i­cate our­selves ful­ly for a while, we can lose sight of our iden­ti­ty. Maybe we nev­er real­ly knew it in the first place. For many vet­er­ans, it can be a strug­gle find­ing their pur­pose as they build their lives after hav­ing faith­ful­ly and brave­ly served our coun­try. Some­times there can be a gap, one that many of our sol­diers fall into and can’t find a way out.

Den­ny Katona, our guest on The Extra­or­di­nary Zone, talks about how he found him­self in the deep­est dark­est part of that gap. He tells us how he climbed out of the gap and how he stays out of it going for­ward. This amaz­ing vet­er­an built a non-prof­it, OP Vet­er­an, to serve the vet­er­an com­mu­ni­ty and con­nect with oth­er orga­ni­za­tions. Their goal is to one day cre­ate a hub so that no vet­er­an is ever left in that gap alone. They strive to give vet­er­ans mul­ti­ple hands to grab onto to pull them­selves out.

Don’t use a per­ma­nent solu­tion for a tem­po­rary prob­lem”

What Road are You On?

What Road Are You On …. To Pas­ture? …Or is it to Slaugh­ter?

Imag­ine for a moment you could zoom out from your lim­it­ed first per­son view and get an omnipresent point of view, like one you would in Google Maps. From this per­spec­tive you can see where you are now and the des­ti­na­tion. If you were able to see sev­er­al miles ahead what would be the des­ti­na­tion?

Would it lead to pas­ture or to slaugh­ter? Often times we don’t always ful­ly real­ize if the path we are on will lead us to where we are want­i­ng to go. Ulti­mate­ly no one wants to go to the slaugh­ter, but nei­ther do the sheep. How can we know if we are on the right path or if we are on the”… way which seemeth right unto a man…” (Proverbs 14:12)

Your Extraordinary Path — Part 1

Dream Big and Unapologetically

You may ask: “where is my path to suc­cess?” It is over­grown and cov­ered by hurts, hang-ups and pat­terns; by neg­a­tive think­ing and soci­etal influ­encers. We must clear away the over­grown weeds, thorns and brush if we are to uncov­er and expose our beau­ti­ful­ly and per­son­al­ly designed path. It is just wait­ing for us to set foot on it and take the first step.

Step one, Dream Big and unapolo­get­i­cal­ly.

If It Tastes Bitter, Add Salt

What can we do???

The world seems to be get­ting dark­er and more neg­a­tive. With tech there are even more avenues for neg­a­tiv­i­ty to spread it’s con­ta­gious poi­son. It is so much eas­i­er for the neg­a­tive noise to get past our defens­es and wreak hav­oc on our minds and the minds of those we care about. The mind is both a pow­er­ful and vul­ner­a­ble part of us. How do we strength­en our defens­es, for­ti­fy our­selves and our fam­i­ly and friends?

Our newest pod­cast answers these ques­tions and gives prac­ti­cal tools to be used now to change the tra­jec­to­ry of neg­a­tive talk and dark cloudy atti­tudes that inevitably invade our lives.

Nourishing Relationships

It’s good to take note of your cur­rent rela­tion­ships. Do they bring nour­ish­ment or do they bring tox­i­c­i­ty? One can bring you into ful­fill­ment, the oth­er can drain you ter­ri­bly. This episode asks the ques­tion: how does this apply to you?
