YOUR VOTE MATTERS

Are you registered to vote?  When was the last time you voted? I am paying attention to the dialogue going on in our country these days.  There are widespread calls for “change” being directed to the leaders in our communities, our states and our country. For changes to take place, those elected to office have to be prone to listen to our voices.  One of the ways to do that is to make sure you […]

SELF-FULFILLING ATTRIBUTES COMMON TO SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE

Dr. Henry Cloud is a writer and speaker I admire.  I recently found this list of attributes that he says are apparent in people living meaningful lives. Gratitude: People who actively develop an attitude of gratitude and express gratitude regularly are happier people. Positive Thinking:  People who guard their thinking and whose thinking is rooted in faith are happier than pessimistic, negative thinkers.  They are also more successful. Purpose and Calling:  People who recognize and […]

MOTIVATION: THE DISCIPLINE OF SUCCESS

  “If you put your effort, energy, and time into anything, you will get better,” Eric Vetro, singing coach. I listened to Vetro coach a guy with little singing skills and little confidence of making it. Vetro told him to quit acting like a guy who couldn’t sing and start acting like a singer; if he would then match up that belief with effort, energy, and time, he would have a better chance of winning.

THE POWER OF WORDS

“Lord, save me from the sins of my tongue and the flaws of character that fuel them. Make my words honest (by taking away my fear), few (by taking away my self-importance), wise (by taking away my thoughtlessness), and kind (by taking away my indifference and irritability). Amen.” – Tim Keller I saw this prayer on Twitter. If it resonates with your spiritual side great, but it’s chock full of communication wisdom. Fear impacts honesty. […]

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO EXPERIENCE YOU?

“You are someone else’s experience.” What’s it like to experience you? Some craft their experience with intentional living. They project a certain image by carefully considering the way they walk, talk, act and react. Some folks don’t give it much thought at all. What you see is what you get. If others don’t like it, tough. It’s their problem, not yours. I think it’s important to consider what others experience. It’s not always easy. To […]

CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE

  “Lead where you stand.” In these days of stress and turmoil, that’s the thread that keeps running through my brain. Work inside your circle of influence to make things better. Model the behavior you believe is right for the world. Do unto others as you desire it be done to you. Listen to understand. Lend a hand. Respect input from others. Teach and share the things you know and can do which will strengthen […]

TRUSTWORTHINESS

“Trust is the stacking of small moments over time, something that cannot be summoned with a command—there are either marbles in the jar or there are not.” – Brené Brown, Dare to Lead Trust – I’ve come to learn that being trusted is among the most sought-after character traits. Leadership books tell me that as CEO, our company won’t thrive if I don’t earn your trust. Hopefully, you have confidence in my leadership because of […]

POLITICAL TRANSPARENCY?

Apologies are too rare. I try to imagine the impact of a politician standing up and saying: · “We weren’t prepared, but we’re trying to make up ground…” · “We underestimated how severe this could be, but we’re working hard to turn things around…” · “We tried this, but it didn’t work. We are trying this now….” · “I wish I had all the solutions. We are learning as we go through this.” I would […]
