The Perils of Leadership

Leadership means doing what’s right, even when you must stand alone. You will not be the most popular person when you lead others. Critics are everywhere and should be welcomed. The critics have a problem for everything, while leaders are searching for solutions.

If you are called to lead, lead well without compromise. Let your vision be clear. Just keep going…

Patience…

It’s said that patience is a virtue, but I see it as an opportunity when we practice patience. Why do we get upset or angry when traffic is moving slowly. Or if the checkout line at the grocery store is long? These opportunities, and other similar circumstances allow us to slow down, notice the people around us, and perhaps take time to engage with them. Our culture is a culture of busyness, not human connection. We need to connect with others…and stop rushing through life.

Fear

Not all fear is bad. We are hardwired to feel fearful in dangerous situations. But the fear of failure, fear of success (yes, it exists) and fear of other people’s judgments is unhealthy. It will leave us unfulfilled and frustrated. If you are fearful, do the work on yourself to release the fear and live fully. Self-work isn’t easy, but it’s worth it…

Starting Line

Sometimes life feels like a race. Everyone is trying to win, and the competition is good. We are, in actuality, running our own race. Our only real competitor is ourselves. We should self-evaluate how well we are doing by how much effort we put into it. Give it everything you have in you. Finish strong…

Activity

It has become an honor to be known as the busiest person around. Has this become the culture of America? I hope not. We must make time for what matters most: people. If we gain wealth but have no real friends and our family merely tolerates us, we aren’t winning the game of life. Examine your focus. Recommit to the people who care about you…

Anger

There are times when we should get angry. It should piss us off when we learn of child abuse, sex trafficking, physical and emotional abuse. Jesus got angry when he saw how people were disrespecting The Temple…God’s house. He made a whip to drive out the animals and traders.

Righteous anger is okay. Getting angry when someone cuts us off in traffic to the point where we want revenge isn’t okay. In fact, it’s just dumb…

Times Really Does Fly!

Today is my 65th birthday. While many people think of that as retirement age, retirement has never crossed my mind. In fact, I’m more ambitious now than I have ever been. There’s much to accomplish to continue bringing light into the lives of others. We are born into a period of time that is according to God’s plan, and every life has a greater purpose. Find yours and pursue it with everything you have in you. Age exists only in our head and our heart…
