    I hear you. As a production manager for a newspaper and a former commercial printing production coordinator deadlines have been my driving force. I have always been the last one before the news goes out and if the sales staff or news staff is late, my inner “Hulk” comes out. In the old days I was able to go out back while the press was running and unleash where no one could hear me. Sadly, I now work in a building so quite if I adjust my seat everyone knows. (the silence is killing me, I miss a busy news room) and thus when a rep comes in holding a late ad and a simple “no” doesn’t work I have been known to lose it.
    My biggest concern as I try to keep the “green guy” under control is I find I’m not caring about the end product. We have created a real “just get it in attitude” And no one seems to care. My best investment and suggestions for deadline day is a squeeze ball.
    Meanwhile, I have found my happy place and it is screen printing. and I hope to take it to the next level.
    Apologies if I’m rambling. Thanks.

    Hi Noah,
    Wow, I gotta tell you that today’s Monday Mentor was truly right on time for me. I’ve battled Fear, Anxiety, nervousness, and depression (bipolar disorder – which I was diagnosed with) for years now. I wake up with it everyday and it stays with me most of the day. I’ve tried listening to worship music and just relaxing in God’s presence but for some reason, it doesn’t help which worries me. I thought it might be somewhat of a chemical imbalance so I started taking Vitamin Supplements about a week ago. It’ll probably take some time to take effect. Unfortunately, Anxiety and Depression has truly ruled my life for many, many years. Your video does bring me some encouragement. I just don’t want to waste anymore of my life in this pit. Sincerely and with much gratitude to you both for this video.

    Hi Noah,
    Another great Monday Mentor! Perfectionism is something I struggle with daily. It tends to create so much unnecessary anxiety for me because I’m preoccupied with questions like, “Will my manager fire me because I made a mistake on the job yesterday? Did I put that back in it’s correct place so that my loved ones won’t be angry with me?” Also perfectionism affects me in the ways of being a “people pleaser.” I have to do a perfect job and if it’s not to someone else’s liking, my whole world falls apart. For me, perfectionism equates to performance acceptance. I’m only accepted based upon the perfect job I do. In God’s economy, that’s not true because He still loves me no matter what. I’ve messed up lots of times, yet He still accepts me and loves me. I think accepting in and resting in that will help overcome a perfectionistic mindset. Again, another great Monday Mentor, Noah! Keep up the great work you’re doing!

    Hey Noah, thanks for the awesome Monday Mentor Post! I must be honest, after I did the LIVE webinar last friday morning (2am in South Africa haha), I cried most of the day and have had a few outbursts since, because I want to do Noah U so badly, it is exactly what I have been looking for I think, all my life, it sounds so cliche but it’s true. I cried out of absolute desperation and realising just how badly I want to do this in my life. A mentor, doing things in community, discovering what God wants me to do and who He created me to be. I saw on Facebook that you are mutual friends with Bob Johnson. I experienced adoption with Father God through Bob in June this year, what a small world that you know each other! 🙂 I was like “WOW!!” my two favourite people know each other haha! So now, the Father is taking me on a journey of discovering Him as Papa, and discovering myself as Daughter, not an orphan.

    Everything you said on that webinar is so true, and my heart so resonated with it. I read and re-read the notes I took from the webinar all weekend and it’s all still sitting in my heart. My hubby even watched the replay on Saturday, and he loved it to. We are in the middle of selling our home and in the process of becoming debt free (Praise the Lord), so at the moment, I can’t afford to do Noah U, BUT, I am praying about it LOTS and I know in my heart it will happen, probably next year though and once we are debt free I can start saving all the money that was going toward debt.

    But for now, I am going to keep on going, keep on trying, and following you on Instagram, watching the Monday Mentor episodes, and taking in everything that I can. Yesterday I was so despondent, just doing stuff for people, doing what people want me to do, I took a “breather” and drew something just because I wanted to, I drew something I felt like drawing, and I got motivated and inspired again! Thank you so much for all that you do and all that you are, and sending loads of blessings to you and your family!

    Hey there Noah,
    What a great Monday Mentor about having our fruit grow on other people’s trees. I’m so self absorbed most of the time, caring about my well-being/welfare, that it clouds my vision of helping others. I often spend time thinking how I missed out on being what I’ve always dreamed I should be. I’m not sure if the dreams I have are the same as what God has in store for me, but I can definitely spend some time helping mentor younger people and encourage them to not give up on achieving life goals/ambitions. Even helping them avoid the pitfalls that I’ve fallen into so many times will help them bear good fruit. Thanks for the message!
