Mia Wright’s life is now very different than her upbringing in a single-parent home on the wrong side of town. While she never imagined she’d beat the odds, she now believes that once she changed her thinking her actions followed and she began to experience a new level of life she never thought possible. Studying the Bible, she recognized a pattern – the people who experienced the extraordinary did unordinary things. Mia challenges us to push past our self-imposed limitations and take steps toward the life we want but are afraid to even dream of. Mia is co-pastor and director of ministry at The Fountain of Praise, a 20,000 member megachurch in Houston, Texas, and author of the new book, Unthinkable: Do the Unordinary to Experience the Extraordinary.
The Four Tendencies
According to Gretchen Rubin, by answering one question – how do I respond to expectations? – we can gain self knowledge that can help us make better decisions, meet deadlines, reduce stress, and engage more effectively with others. Gretchen believes that people fit into four tendencies – upholders, questioners, obligers, and rebels – that our tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, and when we unlock this information, we can better understand ourselves and those around us. Gretchen is the author of Better Than Before, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home. She is a member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100 and has appeared on the Today Show, The Talk, and OWN. Her new book is The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better (and Other People’s Lives Better, Too)
