Failure is not an end, it’s just the beginning - an opportunity to do it again, but differently & better! The best antidote to failure is action. Reflect on the failures and lessons you can learn from them, change and try again. Do it with childlike curiosity & tenacity - nothing will stop you then!
RESILIENCE IS ALL ABOUT ACTION - what we are actually doing even when we are knocked down by business failures, traumas, life's challenges, and results of our own mistakes and choices.
Focusing on the past creates Pain
Focusing on the failures creates more Failure
Focusing on the promising future creates Hope
Focusing on the steps we can take creates Success
Resilience is changing our focus from the past to the future by taking that one next step you know you have to take NOW.
Is it easy - NOT ALL
Is it painful - VERY MUCH SO
Is it worth it - ABSOLUTELY
Staying in the past failure and pain will only create more of it in the future
Looking forward with hope will only LEAD TO SUCCESS & SIGNIFICANCE
Even when we don't know what tomorrow holds, we always know what we can do today. There is no going back - FOCUS ON MOVING FORWARD & UPWARD!
What is that one next step that you know you can take and keep taking until you know more? Take that one...
Happy Mother's Day! The joys of motherhood are certainly not without the sleepless nights, worries, and all the hard work. Thank you to my amazing mom and to all the mothers who lovingly care for their children. Thank you to my beautiful daughters who are the reason I enjoy being a mother so much!
Humility is the Cornerstone of a Servant Leadership! The most successful, respected, and trusted leaders are the ones who recognize that the power of their success is in the people and relationships they cultivate. As Rick Warren asserted, "Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less."
• put their people's interests first,
• motivate them by connecting and understanding them,
• empower and enlarge them by speaking faith into their lives,
• raise the bar for them to reach their God-given potential.
Whose life can you transform today by putting their interests first and serving them without expecting anything in return?
Leadership is WHO YOU ARE not what you do! As Napoleon Bonaparte asserted: "A leader is a dealer in hope." But you can not spread and plant hope for others if you don't love, care for and put your people's interests first. Leaders value people and intentionally add value to people - it is who they are, both in personal and professional lives! I challenge you to ask yourself - do I value my people and how do I show them how much?
Plant seeds of greatness in others by speaking words of life to them and about them!
Words are the outward expression of our minds and our hearts and they carry more weight than we can ever imagine – especially when they come from people we love, admire, respect, and look up to! So as a leader (in business, at home, or everywhere you interact) remember to choose your words wisely. Remember to recognize, validate, appreciate, and elevate with your words to raise the bar for everyone you interact with! Remember to express respect and love before you ask for your people to do anything for you! As John C. Maxwell said, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
Life is a journey and an endless process of becoming Christ-like. Every day brings a new breath of hope for a better and fuller life, regardless of past mistakes!
