20: Using Your Divine Gifts and Talents
Join Dr. Z in this episode of the Dr. Zonzie McLaurin Podcast - POWER PURPOSE, where she will talk about "Using Your Divine Gifts & Talents!" Using your divine gifts and talents is what you were designed to do.  When you are using them it means that you have truly discovered your personal vision and you understand your comparative advantage in this world. Using your divine gifts also involves knowing the “how” and the “why” of effectively applying your God-given capabilities in your everyday lives. One of the best things about your gifts and talents is that you must exercise them to continue to refine them -  and the more you utilize them and put them into practice, you can perfect them more to share with others.  Each day you must exercise our gifts and talents in order to urge, draw, and love people into the kingdom of God and the body of Christ. God has designed and equipped you with specific gifts, and filled us with His life. As you continuously discover and use the your gifts, you will become His hands, His mouth, His feet, going out into the world, telling His story, doing His work, sharing His love, completing His eternal plan for the redemption of this broken world! This episode will he you understand that you are unique and have lots to do in this world with your gifts and talents -- and that God has great things in store for you as you use those gifts and talents for His glory.

19: Live Your Life Through The Windshield View
Join Dr. Z in this episode of the Dr. Zonzie McLaurin Podcast - POWER PURPOSE, where she will talk about "Living Your Life Through The Windshield View!" Did you know that most of us suffer from what is called the "Rearview Mirror Syndrome?" Well, the time is now to start living your life looking forward and not behind. The rearview mirror only keeps you stuck and relieving your past mistakes, hardships, obstacles and much more.  Regret is one of the main culprits of the rearview mirror syndrome and it holds people hostage -- and keeps them that rearview mirror state of mind. So, it is very important to realize that the past is history, you are unable to change it, and your sole focus needs to shift to what you can still have a say on -- which is the present and future. You must live your life in the windshield view, because the beautiful thing about life, while we are alive, we can change the narrative of our being in any direction we wish. We can write each chapter as we go along our journeys.  You have the opportunity to live a life full of meaning, purpose, possibilities and are able to look forward and truly move on to the BIG things that God has in store for you. This episode will give you a new perspective on how to live your life through the windshield view and not allow the rearview mirror syndrome to hold you hostage.
