You’ve all been there… At the end of your rope with no hope. Delaying what you feel is inevitable, with futile attempts to stay relevant to your goal. As you hang in the balance and your mind shifts towards giving up, to save yourself the embarrassment of failure, there’s one more thing you should try…
A few days ago, CEO’s took part in a CEO initiative, aimed at bringing to light social issues in an attempt to attract attention and find solutions. But I’m wondering if these CEO’s are only taking a stand for human rights, the environment, etc., because their desire is to be viewed positively by the public. Does acting in this manner give their revenue stream a boost? I’m certain that it doesn’t hurt. This makes me question the sincerity of their efforts.
Christians pray and ask God for help with problems. Some people think that means sitting back and doing nothing, waiting for God to magically work it all out. That sort of faith will get you nowhere. The Bible clearly teaches in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead.
There is no big secret. There is no magic pill. Things in this life worth having require counsel with the Most High, dedication and hard work. That’s it.
Sometimes, we are our biggest opponent to completing the mission. We are blinded by temporary obstacles, unable to see the potential within ourselves. Having faith means that we tie a knot and hold on at the end of our rope. This mindset becomes habitual and success, inevitable.
Getting started isn’t enough. As I recently heard Kai Greene put it, one must string together consecutive days of efficient action on a basic level, in order to achieve desired results. This implies the need for consistent action steps toward your goals, everyday. Personal accountability and follow through are vital.
No matter how big the obstacle, you can surpass it. By the Lord’s grace and mercy, you are a creature made with a spirit of power and not one of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). You just need to talk to God, find your purpose within your spiritual gift and be ready to work.
No weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
Get your shovel ready, God’s waiting.
Remain humble or you will be humbled…
You may be surprised at what you find. Here are 10 reasons why I think everyone should do this challenge.
People make decisions every day. These decisions can be difficult, depending on different internal and external factors. These factors can quickly turn a normal task, into an abnormal task. Failure to make the right choice in key situations can lead to undesirable outcomes.
As leaders, we can’t be with our people 24/7. It’s impossible to train for every scenario. Instead of focusing on detailed and specific solutions, a broader approach needs to be taken. We have to teach people how to think.
We have to develop within our teams the specific skill of utilizing objective analysis in order to solve problems.
Read on for some ways that will help you teach people how to think.
Give a listen to this interesting and entertaining interview by Mr. T. Pay close attention to what he is saying about fear around the 11:39 mark and then when David Letterman asks him a question about needing a bodyguard at the 11:55 mark.
Ever hear the saying that some people talk just to hear themselves talk? It’s really bad when that person thinks that talking a lot makes them a good leader.
Ever hear people say that you’ve lost focus? I’m sure it’s probably happened to you every now and then. It’s certainly happened to me. It’s part of being human. But saying that we’ve lost focus isn’t exactly right. We’ve just become re-focused onto something else.
How do we lead when we don’t feel like it? Do we have to be ready to lead, all the time? Can’t I take a break?
