How to Know If It's the Right Fit?
Have you ever looked at job opportunities and wondered if you would be ideal for the job but quickly talked yourself out Of it? If you wear clothes, you e probably learned like I have that fit doesn’t always have a direct connection with what’s on the label. Fit is ultimately about how it feels when you try it on. One of the most brilliant ideas to ever impact the marketplace is the dressing room. In the fitting room, you give an article of clothing a crash run. You don’t make the determination about the fit until after you try the item on. The key to determining fit is TRYING IT ON. Trying it on is applying and letting the process reveal the fit. This episode is all about the work it takes to know if something is a fit. Jeremiah 1:4-8 is our biblical example.

Saying NO & Making People Value Your YES
It's episode #100! Wow! Thank you for your love, listenership, and support! Visit my website for more episodes! -> seasonedwithsaltpodcast.com 1. Don’t give an answer right away. Give yourself the time to consider your capacity and interest. 2. Fight the urge to do things for the sake of feeling needed. People will take advantage of you. 3. Anticipate that you may feel bad saying no. Feeling bad shouldn’t equate to changing your mind. 4. You don’t always need a reason to say no. Sometimes, the reason is “this doesn’t contribute to my wellness.” 5. Be careful not to say no and make it your responsibility to find someone to replace you. Let your no free you.

Being Useful vs. Being Popular
In this episode, I discuss the power of being useful versus being popular. This episode was inspired by Dr. Gerald Kayingo, (An impactful nursing professor)  Dr. Carla Gary (Passionate higher education administrator), and Bishop Nathaniel Bullock (Thoughtful/engaging leader of leaders). I want to thank each of these leaders and mentors for manifesting the power of usefulness in their lives and encouraging others to do the same. The Bridge Builder BY WILL ALLEN DROMGOOLE An old man going a lone highway, Came, at the evening cold and gray, To a chasm vast and deep and wide. Through which was flowing a sullen tide The old man crossed in the twilight dim, The sullen stream had no fear for him; But he turned when safe on the other side And built a bridge to span the tide. “Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near, “You are wasting your strength with building here; Your journey will end with the ending day, You never again will pass this way; You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide, Why build this bridge at evening tide?” The builder lifted his old gray head; “Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said, “There followed after me to-day A youth whose feet must pass this way. This chasm that has been as naught to me To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be; He, too, must cross in the twilight dim; Good friend, I am building this bridge for him!”

In I Kings 10, The Queen of Sheba is fascinated by the rumor of Solomon's wisdom. So, she pays him a visit. Through her visit, she learns that his wisdom is not only manifested through what he says when answering her difficult questions but the way that it manifests through the people and the things around him. How does this inform how we think about mentorship? That's what I ramble on about.

Planned Ignoring? Responding to Attention-Seeking Behavior #84
Did you know that you can protect your peace? Have you ever been in the store and seen Little toddlers throwing the biggest fit while the parent carried on as though nothing was happening? If you’re like me, you’ve probably muttered to yourself, “I know that lady sees that little boy destroying the entire rack of pasta noodles!” This thing has literally always puzzled me! Ok. Fast forward to yesterday! I tell my 3 friends in our group chat that someone responded to an email I sent (reply all) intending to get a reaction out of me. I give a little context and then one of my faithful friends texts the following sentence: “In behavior therapy, we have a tactic called “planned ignoring. Not to be confused with planned ignorance.” Being the young scholar that I am, the term piqued my interest and I spent the next 20 minutes sitting in my car watching YouTube videos about this tactic. The procedure of planned ignoring involves deliberate parental inattention to the occurrence of target child behaviors. In other words, parents identify behaviors that function as a means of getting their attention and selectively ignore them. Okay, then what is extinction? Planned ignoring is one the simplest types of extinction procedures. The term extinction refers to discontinuing rewarding a behavior that has previously been rewarded. Extinction is an intervention strategy that has been widely shown to be effective in reducing rates of inappropriate behaviors in children. SO NATURALLY, I WANT TO ENGAGE THIS PRACTICE WITH ADULTS. Some people move through the world manifesting their insecurities. They will attach certain insecurities to your being if they feel threatened. So their behavior towards you is not always a reflection of what you have done or said, but who you are. Therefore, that recenters how we should respond. Planned ignoring is supposed to end the practice of rewarding bad behavior. Critics argue if it is the best strategy. What I unequivocally agree with that You can ignore behavior without ignoring the person. We have to give the same energy to reinforcing replacement behavior. “How” you ignore can be as equally damaging as how you respond. At the end of the day, planned ignoring is less about the person and their behavior but more about how you respond to behavior when you have the power to reinforce better behavior through your own discipline. Here are the three takeaways for me from the Bible. Process how you internalize the behavior by managing your response time. You may not be able to ignore the behavior. Listen up! James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: Get your thoughts under control. Get to a place of peace before you join the other person where they want you to be. Prompt: when I’m triggered, what emotions do I feel and how do I manage them through my thoughts: Philippians 4:8, KJV: "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Proverbs 3:5-7 King James Version 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

#80 Back to Church Series - Partnering with Media Ministry Experts w/ Greg James
God laid it on my heart to do a series entitled “Back to Church” where I have candid conversations with church leaders, Christian influencers and subject matter experts about ways we can return to the building, without forsaking the creativity and foresight it required to survive a continuing global pandemic. I thought would be right to begin this series with my friend, Gregory James. Gregory is the media ministry director for the progressive church in Sacramento, CA, and the owner of James Media. James Media has provided production, post-production, audio and projection services for churches, non-profits, and global companies like YouTube and much more! I’m also going to give 5 tips for partnering with a media ministry expert at the end! Don’t try to do it yourself if you want to do it in excellence. You don’t have to be the talent and the tech. Trust professionals with your gifting. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT if you are picky but be open-minded. An experienced media expert knows the tricks of the trade and can push you creatively. Don’t be reluctant to pay. When you invest in a great media expert, you enhance your ministry's capacity and potential footprint. Have a pre-production meeting to discuss your vision, participants, and preferences. Don’t make any assumptions. The Holy Spirit is not stifled when we plan ahead. Pray and partner with your media ministry leaders and professionals. They are key to the spread of the Gospel message to the church and the unchurched. They will work more effectively when they are led by God. Kill the ego and dictatorship for the best outcomes. I want to thank Brother Greg for joining me and I hope you will share this episode if it has been helpful. I’d also love it if you subscribed to my podcast and wrote a review! That helps me spread the word about the podcast, and more importantly, Jesus Christ! Have a great day! Remember: Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. Follow James Mediq!

#79 Years Set Your Purpose in Motion!
What to pray for this week: pray to recognize what God is doing in your life. Pray to recognize that the places you are are for a reason. Pray to recognize the people he has placed in your life to push you. Recall the affirmation God gives to Jeremiah (1:5) (Amplified)  Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”  Later in Jeremiah 29:11 11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. God has a divine plan assigned to your life and it includes the family your in, the place you work, the school you went to and all you have had to ensure. CONSIDER CHRIST, our example.

#78 What is Toxic Positivity? Why it Sucks! Respond Like Jesus!
#78 What is Toxic Positivity? Why it Sucks! Do you know what can be extremely annoying? Toxic positivity! What is it? Why do people do it? What’s the alternative? That’s what we are going to dive into in this episode!  What is Toxic Positivity?  Toxic positivity is the belief that no matter how dire or difficult a situation is, people should maintain a positive mindset. It's a "good vibes only" approach to life. What is Faith? Faith is the assurance that God's word is true! Challenge the reasons why we escape to toxic positivity: We don't always know how to show up for people. We lack empathy. A passive way to redirect negativity. What does the Bible Say: Read John 11 to learn about how JESUS sympathizes with his friends.

#74 Mastering Mondays: Every Play Matters
I’m dedicating this episode to the courageous and unapologetic Black woman, Asia Barnes, coach of the University of Arizona Women’s Basketball team. Thank you for being a fierce, passionate, and loving competitor and for representing the Pac-12 conference with excellence. Welcome to Seasoned with Salt Podcast. This is Dominique Beaumonte, your host. Every Monday, I am bringing a motivational thought, inspired by God's word, to keep you grounded, empowered, and courageously moving towards your goals! Did you watch the 2021 NCAA College women’s basketball championship? The Stanford Cardinals played the Arizona Wildcats in a historic game between two Conference rivals who had already place twice. The Wildcats were down one point with 6 seconds to go in the game. They had the ball but couldn’t convert. Time ran out and the Cardinal wins. After the game, they asked Arizona’s coach, Asia Barnes, about the last heartbreaking moments of the game. She said; “Against great teams like Stanford, we have to be a little bit better at the small things. It doesn't ever come down to the last shot. It comes down to the missed free throws down the stretch, the foul on the three-point shot, getting the turnovers and not converting. It's those things. It's never the last play, but it obviously just stings pretty bad.” Losing can have a detrimental impact on our future efforts to win. If the team spends every day focusing on the last mistake they made, they will be grossly unprepared for the next season. So the challenge becomes: Don’t be crippled by your last shot Winning has to be the byproduct of wholistic Preparation. Every action matters. This week, we will have the choice to labor on what we lost or focus on how to win. So this week, every play matters. Discipline is the name of the game. 1. This week, Don’t be lazy. Ecclesiastes 9:10 - Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. 2. Prioritize God over your plan Proverbs 16:3 Commit your works to the LORD, And your thoughts will be established. 3. Put your plan to work with the three Ps: Prayer, Practice and People!

#63 How to get ahead from behind: You Can Compete!
Do you get anxious at the thought of having to compete? Has the fear of competition negatively influenced your professional life? Dating status? I want to share some principles for fighting the fear of competing. I want to give you 5 things you'll need to advance in your life, ministry, relationship, profession, and entrepreneurial journey. First, let me go over what this episode is NOT about. Not about competing for things that don’t belong to you. Not about the competition that is free of integrity Not about competition birthed through jealousy The principle I’m going to share is most beneficial for those: considering career advancement Working to develop/sustain/grow a business Considering intentional dating Considering/wrestling with starting a ministry or accepting a calling Secondly, I’ve got to deal with destructive hindrances to personal growth. Comparison False humility: deflating your experience, credentials, and accomplishments for the sake of others. Laziness David: From the outside looking in, David is under-qualified to fight Goliath He’s not a fighter He doesn’t have the appropriate equipment He doesn’t have the confidence of his family or friends There are 5 things that David had that will help us to walk boldly into our promise: David was Confident. David believed in his transferable skills. Davide had a plan and protected it. David didn't lose sight of his Goal. Davis was available.
