Our Future…

Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. We are failing them. In 2016, suicide became the #2 killer of kids. In 2020 a study revealed that 78% of students felt lonely. It’s ironic that so many kids could feel lonely. We live in the most technologically connected culture ever.

The solution? One thing we can do is make certain our children feel loved and accepted. Hold them accountable for their actions, but don’t let them feel unloved because they made a mistake or two.

We must turn this around, and fast. It begins with us…

Kindness Matters…

Every person you encounter has something troubling them. You probably will not see it on the surface level, but that doesn’t make it less real. Slow down and show kindness to everyone, even the people who don’t deserve it. They need kindness shown to them the most, and you will benefit as well…

Leading Well…

Before you can lead others, you must put in your time serving others. Pay your dues, so to speak. Other people need to know you are trustworthy, reliable, and that you are willing to help develop them. This holds true whether you are leading an organization or your family. Leaders have a servants heart…

Newness…

When we go on vacation, everything we experience is new to us. The neurons in our brain go crazy, creating new neural pathways where our feelings are forever stored. This is healthy exercise for our minds. I encourage you to try to experience something new every day, even if it’s changing the way you drive to work. You will feel the difference…

Pain…

To build muscle, we feel the pain of lifting weights. To build resilience, we must face our challenges head on. There is no way around them. Pain is the gateway to strength…
