[00:03:17] Welcome to the show. Barbie, thank
[00:03:19] Barby Ingle: you so much for having me, Scott. I'm excited to be here.
[00:03:22] Scott Maderer: So probably like last week I asked you about one of the words that I always asked to ask people to define, which is leadership. This is the other one. So my brand is inspired stewardship. I live my life through that lens of stewardship, and yet I've discovered that people define it different ways.
[00:03:38] So let me ask you, how would you define the word stewardship and how has that definition impacted your life?
[00:03:44] Barby Ingle: Stewardship is when you are able to use your talents from God to help humanity, to help society and to live your best life so that you can help others live their best. [00:04:00] And stewardship is taking care of yourself, being responsible, taking care of those around you and shining a light on what our purpose is here on earth.
[00:04:12] Helping people find their talents and being a steward of the actions that you're taking in your life and choosing the actions with the. Intentions, purpose, and patients to fulfill the parts of life that we need to here on earth. We're all here for a reason. And stewardship is the kind of structure that gets us through to living our life, to the fullest it's supposed to be.
[00:04:45] Scott Maderer: And how has that definition played out or effected your life?
[00:04:48] Barby Ingle: It has played out in my life because when I am having a challenging time, I'm able to stop and reflect in and listen and say, is this helping me? [00:05:00] What is the challenge that I'm being faced with? Am I able to use that in a way that will help myself, but also help society?
[00:05:09] And it, it always comes down to being the best me helps you be the best. Phew. When I share it. And making sure that I take care of the things in my life that I'm given as a gift and a talent, so that. I can help other people live to their fullest.
[00:05:28] Scott Maderer: So if somebody really wants to make an impact to make a dent on the universe, what are some of the resources, principles, ideas, or tips that you would share with them to learn that.
[00:05:40] Barby Ingle: I have a few tips that I would pass on to others to live their best life and things. Things that they can remember first is human connection matters most so smiling at somebody can change their life, opening a door, paying for the car in front [00:06:00] of you.
[00:06:01] Saying, just simple. Are you okay? How can I help you to start a conversation instead of how are you, how can I help you? What can I do to help you? The second one would be B. A lot of times people are just being, and they're just here and they're going with the flow. Cause that's the easiest way. We're not here on earth to do it.
[00:06:23] The easiest way. We're here on earth to have the chance and the freedom from God to do the things that we are here to do and share so that we can learn the life lessons and fulfill our purpose here on earth. And the third thing is, remember that practice makes sense. Practice makes better not practice makes perfect.
[00:06:45] My coaches before me would say practice makes perfect and expect us to go in and win the championship every time. But practice makes better. And the things that you think are mundane, like making your bed each morning and brushing [00:07:00] your teeth and doing the dishes, then the ones, those are things that we do in our life as a routine that helps us see our purpose and remind us of our purpose here on earth.
[00:07:13] And those are things that God. Our God hopes that we choose to do to live to our fullest. And remembering that practice makes better reminds us that we need to practice every day. Those things that need to be routine in our life so that we can experience more fully the things that are special and gifts that are our presence in.
[00:07:37] Scott Maderer: So Barbie, this is the easy question everyone tells me. If I invented a machine and I could pick you up from today and take you into the far future, maybe a hundred to 150 years, and you were able to look back and see the whole journey of your life, what impact do you hope you've left behind in the war?
[00:07:55] Barby Ingle: The impact that I hope that I've left on the world, looking [00:08:00] back is hope and human connection. And being a reminder that human connection is what matters. And we want to make that as positive as we can. And I would hope that all the little stressful things that we let creep up into our lives. We could let go.
[00:08:22] And I hope that I am able to do that as much as possible. And looking back in 50 years, I'm able to say through hope through faith, I was able to let go of the small stuff and it was beneficial to humanity and moving society forward, even though I'm only one, because the synergy that, that creates and ripples out we'll live in.
[00:08:46] Scott Maderer: So what's coming next for Barbie as you're continuing on this journey, what's in the pipeline.
[00:08:53] Barby Ingle: Yeah. So we're just wrapping up November in the November project and all the activities over this last month [00:09:00] with raising awareness and in that, and I'm going to continue doing November year after year.
[00:09:06] But I also in my journey want to. Publish three more books. I have nine books that I've done. I have three more in the works and as I'm compelled to write them, I hope that Jesus, his light is shine. Through those works in. People can use them as a tool to help them in their life. So I would like to complete those books and I hope that I am able to mentor more people through whatever challenges that they're facing by providing help and giving them hope.
[00:09:39] And I can T we'll continue to do that here on earth as the cheerleader of hope through all of my actions.
