What is In The Cool Zone? Part 2

Getting "in the cool zone" is not only about how one thinks about information. It is also about training yourself to take control of your emotions and your body to enable you to maintain your thought process. 

The techniques shared here help position your emotions and body for success. They get in your way more often than you might think! What we focus on here will allow you to absorb what is coming at you while keeping your thoughts clear, staying cool and continuing to use your mind. 
"Is it possible we don't talk about the Lord more often in public because we might get push back?"
Life is moving quickly and we often find ourselves in stressful situations. Sometimes these situations can come as a surprise and throw us off. Other times we know we are headed into the fire. 

Since we know this is the case let's take some time to ready ourselves so we can be the person we know we can be and certainly the person the Lord intended us to be. 

Train yourself to be godly.

What are the awkward settings that one might find themselves in?

  • A disagreement with a friend a boss or others.
  • Simple misunderstandings.
  • Having your beliefs challenged.
  • Accusations against your character.
  • Sharing the Gospel.
  • Sharing or debating philosophical ideas.

What is In The Cool Zone? Part 1

When it comes to one's belief system and developing your core values, being In The Cool Zone is about managing the information you receive and processing it with a thoughtful, peaceful mindset. The goal is to come to "the truth." As followers of Christ we understand that knowing and adhering to the truth is of paramount importance. Therefore, it is helpful to develop a sound thinking process.

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

When do we need to manage information?

  • Reading and studying the Bible.
  • When challenged with unfamiliar ideas and philosophies.
  • It is an essential part of being "open minded."
  • Exercising the skill and ability to receive new information and not dismiss it before evaluating and attempting to understand its value.
  • Following and understand current events.
  • Hearing another's point of view or opinion on a subject.
