Do you hate the thought of working past 55 or 60? Do you hate not being able to live the life you deserve today? Do you hate not knowing what your financial future looks like? It's time to stop doing what you hate, here's your host, Mr. Harold Green.

(00:19): Oh, hello. Hi everybody. This is Harold Green and it is time to stop doing what you hate. How's everybody doing today? I am doing pretty good. It's a Saturday morning here from me. I usually like to come in early and record my shows on a Saturday morning. Cause it's, it's kinda like my Friday. And it's, it gives me a chance to think about the show throughout the week and, and what it is that I want to share with my listeners. So if you're tuning in for the first time, welcome to the show. If you have been tuning in consistently, I want to thank you for doing that. We've covered a lot of ground and a lot of different topics, and there's a, there's a ton more on the way. I want to talk to you guys about something very, very serious today. It's about telling the truth.

(01:12): That's not the title of the show. The title of this show is the power of, of words. And I believe telling the truth or telling lies. Those are words that come out of our mouth and they can either have a positive effect on everything that we do, or they can have a negative effect on everything that we do. But honestly, I, I hate being lied to, I hate being misled. I hate not being told the truth. I hate being misinformed for whatever, whatever different reasons. And some people are not telling the truth because they have some sort of monetary interest in you believing misinformation. And I think that's a horrible thing. I think that's why so many people in our country today probably want it to be financially because they've been misled. They've been told a lot of different things for a lot of different reasons.

(02:01): And I think it's time for us to pull the sheet off of the things that are going on and really just start telling the truth and finding out what's real and what's fake. And so today, and this show the power of words, I'm going to get into a lot of different things, but I need to lay a foundation for where I'm going to go and why I think the way I do and the type of results that I've received because of that. But it's going to have to come from a biblical perspective and in the all throughout the Bible, you hear and you see things being said, miraculous things happening just based on people's words. And I think the power of words, you can just see it all throughout. And this morning as I got up, I was, I was asking God. I said, Hey, you know, I needed to do the show today, but how, how do I deliver this show?

(02:59): Where do I go? And how do I, I share what I need to share in a way that it's going to be impactful and that it's going to be powerful enough to change people's lives. And basically I opened up Proverbs this morning and started reading Proverbs 13 in it. The first thing that jumped out was about word. And so I'm going to get into it, but I'm going to jump around a little bit. And you know, if you do have a Bible, you can go with me to acts chapter three. And I'm just going to read a quick little story here about something that happened because of the power of somebody's words. And I'm not going to be too long with this, but acts chapter three. It says now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour at three o'clock in the afternoon when a certain man crippled from his birth.

(03:45): And I'm reading from the amplified version. Classic amplified classic says verse two, when a certain man cripple from his birth was being carried along, who was laid each day at the gate of the temple, which is called beautiful so that he might beg for charitable gifts from those who entered the temple. So when he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked them to give him a gift and Peter directed his gaze intently at him. And I can just kind of imagine how strong that look was. And so it had John and said, look at us. Then the man paid attention to them expecting that he was going to get something from them. But Peter said silver and gold money. I do not have. But what I do have that I give to you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth walk, then he took hold of the man's right hand with a firm grip and raised him up.

(04:45): And at once his feet and ankle bones became strong and steady and leaping forth, he stood and began to walk and he went into the temple with them walking leaping and praising God. And when all the people saw him walking about and praising God, and they recognize him as the man who usually set begging for alms or gives out the beautiful gate of the temple. And they were filled with wonder and amazement bewilderment, consternation over what had occurred to him. And to me, that's, that's a very, that's a very powerful, because the man that was at the gate, I think is representative of a lot of us sometimes in our life where we find ourselves in situations and we simply don't know how to get out. And a lot of people do seek me out to help them with their finances. And my objective is to help them rise and walk into soar financially.

(05:35): And so we are we're partners in this together, and I think we must use every possible tool at our disposal. So getting into the power of words, you know, we can say rise and walk rise. And so, or whatever it might be, wherever you are. I want you to rise from where you are to where you want to be. So we're going to talk about the power words, but I'm going to mix this up with goal setting and things of that nature. So I believe that there are some universal truths out there that we can all benefit from. And I think Proverbs is a very good book that goes into universal truths and or universal laws and stuff. People say, well, you know, this may or may not apply to me. And I said, yeah, it's true. It's kind of like stopping at a stop sign.

(06:20): You know, I'll stop at the stop sign because I know if I don't stop at the stop sign and I go through that stop sign, I could either kill myself or kill someone else. And it's the same thing with the universal laws. We can't really say those don't apply to us because if we're a human beings living on this earth, all universal laws apply to us like physics and gravity. You jump off a building. You can't say, well, gravity does not apply to me. That would be bullish, right? And you're going to hit the ground hard and something bad is going to happen. There are also universal laws when it comes to finance. There's also universal laws. When it comes to marriage universal laws, when it comes to a lot of different things and life, or we can call it universal truths. So this morning, what hit me was when I was reading in Proverbs, when I wanted to get this message out to you guys that Proverbs 13, it says a good man eats good from the fruit of his mouth.

(07:08): But the desire of the treacherous is for violence. He who guards, his mouth keeps his life, but he who opens wide, his lips comes to ruin. And it's kind of like people look at their marriage and anything else that goes on in their life. I think that everything that you have in life is a consequence of, of the words that we use. I learned this in Proverbs a long time ago, Proverbs 1821, but it will start with number four, Proverbs 18, for the words of a discreet and wise man's mouth are like deep waters until plenteous and difficult to fathom. And the fountain of skillful and godly wisdom is like a gushing stream, sparkling, fresh, pure life. Given six, as a self competence, bulls lips, Springs contention in his mouth and bites a beating again, using wrong words. Seven says self-confident fool's mouth is his ruined and his lips are a snare to himself.

(07:57): Verse eight. The words of a whisper are or tell bearer are as dangerous. The morsels, they go down into the inner most parts of the body. This is talking about gossip and then on, down in 18. And I think this is the last one for the day before I get into what I want to talk about. A man's moral self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth. And with the consequences of his words, he must be satisfied whether good or evil. And it says death and life are in the power of the tongue. And they Belgian that shall eat the fruit of it or death or life. The other day, something happened to me and and I was pretty upset about it. And I wanted to say a lot of different things. And I remember hearing this this message one day about the power of your words and how if you're having a very lousy day, the best thing to do is shut up until you can say something positive.

(08:49): And that that's the day that kind of saved my life and a lot of different things, because sometimes we get very emotional about things that happen to us. And then we just start saying whatever it is that we want to say. So let's get into the power of words, you know, as it pertains to goal setting, and we have a lot of different things that we want to accomplish in life for the most of us. And some people say goals are useless and all of that jazz. And my response is you, you have to me goals are like targets. They're like archery. When you put the bullseye out there, if you don't have a target, you know, you can shoot anywhere. And when you start shooting anywhere that's disastrous. And so I want to go into a couple of different things in regards to goal setting.

(09:40): And I have a book that I've used for the last 20 something years. And it's like a workbook that I got a seminar, and then it's titled get it done now. And inside the book, what it does is it goes through setting your short range goals, setting your long range goals, and then creating steps along the way, benchmarks highway markers, or whatever that lets you know, whether or not you're on track. And at that time I wasn't, I wasn't doing too well in life. My wife and I, we started out having kids very young. I was 20 years old when we got married. My first kid came out when I was 21. And so we had a very tough time financially because we just didn't go through the normal route of getting married, having a family. We went the unconventional route. We got married in Japan.

(10:29): We loved Japan, came to Hawaii, was in the military. I was an air traffic controller. And so I decided to get out of the military because I didn't want to have to go back to another ship. So you have sea duty shore duty rotation. We had just had our first kid and I didn't want to have to go back to a ship where my wife would be left to raise a newborn all by herself. And I would be in and out and all over, you know, doing different things all over the world and not being able to see my family back then there was no wifi. There was no, no email or video chat. Like some of these guys do. And like you, you don't miss a beat. So we had to write letters and wait for packages and all different types of things like that.

(11:10): And it just made it unbearable. So I was told my wife this, you know, I'm going to get out and we're going to stay here in Hawaii. So again, I wasn't doing too well back then at the time and found myself into a lot and into some situations that were hard and tough. And along the way, I did find a relationship with the Lord, which, you know, I will share with you guys is not to beat you over the head, but it's just kinda like my history and where I came from. And how, how did I get to where I am today? Again, a lot of people take a lot of different routes to get there, but mine again was very unclear on unconventional. So I found myself in a seminar a two day seminar with this guy success coach. And that's what he was.

(11:47): He wasn't called that back then was Scott motivational speaking. So going this little exercise or it's a, it's a two day seminar, but going through it and he just kind of outlined a lot of different things in regards to what could be holding you back. And it went into setting goals and then also the power of the tongue. So I said, well, how do I, how do I, how do I do this? So I began setting goals. The first goal I set was to get a job making X number of dollars per year with the weekends off. And so I began to say positive affirmations towards that goal. I have a job making X number of dollars with the weekends off. And at the time I was in sales and there wasn't our weekends off, it was selves and commissions and it was not a stable income job.

(12:33): And so we went through a lot of things, but I kept saying what I wanted, what my goal was. And here's what began to happen. As I began to say those things, it began to program my mind to see different opportunities out there that were available to me. And I had to take a leap of faith and begin to act on those opportunities. And so, as I began to do that, I went through some interviews and finally I landed the job that fit my goal. It was a job and the home office of a life insurance company, and it was in client relations, client retention. I had the weekends off, I was making the kind of money that I wanted to make, but that wasn't the ultimate goal. And that was just a stepping stone on the way to something greater. So I had to begin to set greater goals in regards to the things that I wanted to accomplish.

(13:25): So at the time we didn't own a home, we were renting and I wanted to own a nice, nice house or a nice home here in Hawaii. So I began to confess or say positive affirmations towards owning a nice home in Hawaii. And so as I began to do that, I began to program my mind opportunities came open, my wife and I, we went and we looked at the place brand new nice one of the nicest places here in Hawaii, brand new. And we put down a deposit. But what I began to realize was the income that I was making was not enough to sustain that type of life, save for retirement. So I began confessing something different about owning my own business before turning age 30. So I began to confess those things. And again, my brain began to help me to reprogram itself, to, for me to learn different things and to take on new skills because unless I had the natural stuff done the spiritual side or, or that, that stuff that was in my brain was not going to come to pass it.

(14:28): It was just going to be wishful thinking. So I began to say positive things towards that. I began to learn new skills, begin to grow, develop. And the next thing you know, here I am sitting in my very own business doing extremely well. But again, that was not the end goal. I can't say what the goals were, but every step that I took got me closer and closer and closer and closer to my goal. And so eventually some other things happen good, good, and bad. And add some setbacks along the way. And so I had to shut the old company down and start a new one because I can't get into what happened. And I took $238. That's all we had. I put it in a bank here in Hawaii called central Pacific bank. And I started my own company again. And back then it was really hard.

(15:22): And so I had to set goals again for myself, and I've had to sit down and say positive affirmations, which begin to program my brain again, to learn and take on different skills. And so when I got into the, into the college funding practice, I wanted to be super successful at that. And so I have a sheet of affirmations that's about or confessions that are about two pages long. And one of the things I said was my college funding services are extremely valuable and my business is very successful. And I just began to say that over and over again, sometimes six, seven, eight, nine times a day. What that began to do was it helped me to reprogram my mind and to generate ideas that would help my college funding services become extremely valuable and to help my business become extremely successful. And I was very afraid of public speaking.

So I had to begin to say things like I am a great public speaker and things of that nature. And I always said things like having an attitude of a winner and not a loser. I am a super producer. I always get results for my clients. I always get positive results for my clients. And so if you're out there and you're struggling to get traction and to make positive progress, I'm going to share with you. The best thing to do is to sit down, set some goals and then begin to say positive affirmations towards your goals. And it's very, very important. And one of the ones I, I'll share with you guys, we were struggling tremendously. Didn't have money to pay the bills. And I, this is the one I said every day, my needs are fully met. We have no debt and we have an abundance to put away and give from.

(17:10): So that's something that I'm constantly striving towards the part about having no debt. You know, that's an ultimate goal in the future, but the other things like having my needs fully met, making sure we have an abundance to go give and to help others with that's very important to me. And so I will continue to confess those things. And another one that I confess it is I have the power to get wealth. That's something that's in the Bible. I have the power to get wealth. Therefore I'm always stepping and the right direction to manifest wealth and prosperity in my life. And so all of the decisions I make, I'm hoping that these decisions and praying that these decisions and confessing that these decisions help me achieve and accomplish my goals. And I say, this is akin to using bricks, to build, to build something. So see your words as bricks, you can use positive words and build something positive, or you can use negative words and you can build something negative.

(18:07): You can use your words to build up. You can use your words to tear down. And so I just wanted to share with you to always be mindful of your words, because for every action, there is a consequence for every positive word, there's a positive outcome for every negative, or there is a negative outcome. And when I get it to finances and I share with people of different things, and sometimes they'll say, I'll never be able to do that. Or I can't see myself with that, or it's just a negative mindset and it's not, how can I say this? It's not okay to condemn them in any, any type of way. But when you began to say things like, I can't see myself with this, or I'll never be able to do, you know, our thoughts, don't just stay, isolate it to ourselves. We begin to think that about other people.

(18:57): Why do they, you have that? You know, why do they have to show off their wealth? Or why do they have that? And it's because you can't see yourself and that same light. And it's because of the words that you have been speaking. And so I want to encourage you to just take, like we do with our phones and answers. We do our cashflow and our net worth. I want you to take inventory of the word that you speak when it comes to your relationships and your finances and even your health, you know, over the next few days and just kind of like have your spouse or someone say, Hey, you know, when I say something negative, check me all right, I'm trying to get better with my words. I'm trying to build a better future for my life, using my words. And again, we must use every possible tool at our disposal.

(19:44): You know, I'm your financial partner and you know, financial advisor, but if I'm working my butt, I asked and doing everything that I can to help you build your financial future, but you're tearing things down with your words. You know, we're not making a very good team. So again, we are partners. And I just wanted to kind of share this with you guys today and come at it from a very different perspective. Nothing I say is meant to offend or alarm anyone or to hurt anyone. I just want to share with you guys some things that have happened to me in my life and to talk about some universal truths that are out there, that we can all take advantage and to benefit from. And so if you're out there and you want to stop doing what you hate, I'll tell you a straight up, you got to get in touch with me, go to my retire. Now, retire while website, take a look at the rapid retired brochure and, or just give me a call (808) 521-4401 to schedule a, a brief talk on the phone and see if there's anything I can do to help you stop doing what you hate. Well, again, thank you very much for allowing me to speak something different into your life. And I hope it's going to be a game changer for you. I hope it's going to take you to the next level. And until next time, one, two, three, let's go.
