Maximizing Leadership and Culture with Jonathan Schober:
Hello JP Family! Welcome back. Today we have an amazing guest to share with you. Jonathan Schober is a preacher’s kid from Austin, TX. He can trace his heritage back to Davy Crockett. He is the founder of Maximize Others, a resource to help corporate businesses implement culture, leadership, and possibilities into their business. Today he is going to share an adversity that no parent wants to ever face.
Jon has been married for over 20 years and has 7 children. Within a span of 5 years, they had 4 kids. The process at the doctor’s office was relatively routine to them at the point of having their fourth child. They had already had a few basic sonograms and were going in for the comprehensive sonogram, the one that looks at all the organs. They already knew about how long this process was to take but it was taking longer this time around. The doctor kept making noises that you don’t want your doctor to make while looking at your unborn child, “hmm”. After the doctor spoke with the nurses and the sonogram was over, he called Jon and his wife into his office. He explained that the heart normally has four chambers; he was only seeing two chambers. He wanted them to immediately make an appointment with a pediatric cardiologist for another sonogram. It would take a few days until they were able to go in for their appointment.
As anyone can imagine, this was a scary few days for the family. Jon describes the feeling when he first heard the news as being helpless. He is trying to be the strong husband and support his wife all while feeling totally helpless. The first thing they did once they left the appointment was to call his parents. Jon and his family believe in the power of prayer. He told his mom and dad what was going on and they all began to pray. When the time came for the appointment, they went in hoping for the best and fearing the worse.
When it was time for the sonogram, again the doctor and nurses were making the same noises you don’t want a doctor to make while looking at your unborn child. One of the nurses looked at Jon and his wife and said “why are you here?” Jon explained what had happened and why they needed the sonogram. She said “well your daughter’s heart is fine. See here is chamber number one, chamber number two, chamber number three, and chamber number four.” Their daughter was born with a healthy heart and has had no trouble with it since.
Jon says he has no idea if the first doctor made a mistake in looking at the sonogram or if it was a miracle but that he doesn’t care. What he does know is that it was real. His faith was tested during those few days. He knows that God always brings you through the hard times, whether he is carrying you or walking with you. Sometimes God will take you over the mountain and you come out the other side very relieved. But there are times when God takes you through the mountain and it is much harder. But you always come out the other side when you trust in him. They were praying for God to take them over that mountain and He did.
Your dark times will come to an end. There is the light of Christ at the end of your dark tunnel. Jon’s story is proof of that. This is not the only adversity that he has faced in his life. He has been fired from a job and laid off. After being laid off from a particular job, he began to really ask “Lord, what do you want to do with my life?” That led him to what he is doing now. He is helping businesses bring their work life and their spiritual life into alignment. He helps them maximize their potential and their spiritual calling. He believes that most people are called to ministry. And that isn’t ministry inside of a church but outside of the church. Jon has very high hopes for the future of this country and world. Businesses are starting to focus more of the culture and realizing that there is more to a person than the uniform they wear or the cubicle they work in. Many people have families and adversities of their own. This is allowing people to be more open and vulnerable. They are being accountable and seeing progress. Once people become transparent, they are able to heal and bring hope to others.
Everyone has a story, whether you have overcome adversity or are going through a hard time now. If you have already overcome an adversity, share your story. You story can bring hope to others. It is very easy for people to feel “this is just how my life is going to be.” Your story can bring them out of that thinking and into a world of hope.
If you are going through a tough time right now, keep moving. You will come out the other end. God has a plan for you. Everything you are experiencing, God will use. He does not waste an experience. Jon uses the example of Joseph in the Bible. He talks about the many trials Joseph faces. But he continues to keep his vision and dream in front of him. Then God blesses him and uses everything Joseph has learned throughout his troubles. God will do the same for you, for everyone. We all just have to continue to have faith and continue moving.
Jon leaves us with three things he would tell his 14/15 year old self.

WELCOME TO THE DEBUT OF THE JOURNEY PRINCIPLES
It is our hope that the Journey Principles Podcast will help you grow and lead you toward the life you want with amazing guests, easy to apply practical principles, and personal motivation.
Stephen shares from his knowledge, his experiences, and most of all, his heart! He knows all about suffering and bears witness to how amazing life can be when we choose to take a stand and apply principles that matter. Many of these are the same principles that transcended him from being virtually homeless and ready to take his life to becoming a respected and successful business owner.
In a very transparent way, Stephen and his guests will walk you through the principles they have adopted into their lives and use daily. They will teach you how to transform from who you think you are today to becoming who you’re meant to be! It does not matter what kind of setbacks you have experienced so far. Stephen and his guests share from their personal, real-life journeys in order to empower you, the listener.
Stephen Scoggins is an entrepreneur, author, and inspiring professional speaker. He has dedicated his life to be a strong example of someone who has been at the bottom but has experienced joy in life. He was born and raised in a broken home, struggled through life until his late twenties, and was on the brink of suicide. He has developed a powerful program called "The Journey Principles" and will share what he has learned from his own story.
After a near attempt at ending his life, Stephen was guided by his personal beliefs and faith to develop a multimillion-dollar organization with strong values. Stephen soon became a top-selling author and speaker with a huge heart for helping others. He founded the Journey Principles Institute in 2015, and within months, JPI had made an impact all over the world. The Journey Principles team is dedicated to the relentless pursuit of serving others by helping them grow past their life's obstacles and allowing them to fulfill their true life-giving purpose and passion.
"This too shall pass, and what comes next will be greater." - Susan Batts
"Obstacles are not simply something that you go through, around, or over. When you truly confront and overcome an obstacle, it becomes a part of you and functions as a teaching tool. This too not only helps you define who you are as an individual, but also helps you perceive and take action in the world." - Stephen
