What 3 Bricklayers Can Tell Us About the Power of Mindset with Phillip Ramsey and Bryan Dewhurst

There’s a parable we came across about the 3 bricklayers: one sees it as a dead-end job, the other sees it as a career that pays the bills, and the other can’t wait to wake up tomorrow and keep building a beautiful cathedral.

The point is, the same set of circumstances can be met with different mindsets. We want nothing less than to help people wake up and feel passionate about whatever it is they are doing. None of that happens overnight, and mindset is just the start.

In this duocast, we talk about what it takes to go from being frustrated about your day-to-day, to living out your gifts and calling that God has given you. We’ve lived it ourselves, and we’ve helped clients at every stage of the bricklayer continuum – and it never gets old (because guess what? We’re doing what we love!)

“If your work feels like a dead end, you should be focused on a budget, and a budget, and a budget.” – Bryan Dewhurst Share on X “A job you hate is not sustainable.” – Phillip Ramsey Share on X “Saving and staying out of debt is all about locking in the intentionality of that paycheck and using that to a higher purpose.” – Bryan Dewhurst Share on X “When you are making a living (not necessarily living your dream) you at least know what you need to earn, and are being purposeful with the excess.” – Phillip Ramsey Share on X “Sometimes the people we attract are just not challenged in life. They’re missing that sense of excitement. They want to do something different, but it's scary.” – Bryan Dewhurst Share on X “Golden handcuffs are not all bad. They may give you some stability while you pursue your passion beyond your job.” – Phillip Ramsey Share on X “When you are doing what you love, you don’t ‘network.’ You build authentic relationships with people who are passionate about the same things.” – Bryan Dewhurst Share on X
