An honesty lesson for true leaders.

IMG_0554It feels good to tell the truth about myself.  I’m always liberated by it.  The lesson today is easy.

Being honest with yourself leads to self-leadership.

It’s one of those simple concepts that are hard to do.  Like, skydiving.  It’s simple, jump and pull the cord.  Don’t wait too long, bend your legs, hit the ground, do the roll, done.  Or something like that…  I’m sure there’s more to it, but probably not that much.  I’m sure I could learn the basics in a short time.  However, skydiving can be very hard to actually do because of things like; the possibility of death, fear, anxiety, common sense, etc.  Being honest with myself is sort of like that.

Boss in the middle. Day three prayer challenge. Truth and Honesty.

IMG_0432This morning my meditation and prayer time left me with the thought.

So, for every boss in the middle out there.  Remain truthful and honest today.  We should do it everyday, but something is telling me today we should especially watch out for the tendency to tell half-truths.

Be a leader, be a boss. Handle your business today.  Because in order to be truthful, you need to exhibit courage and faith.  We lie because of fear.

I’ll check back in tonight.
