Are you doing everything you can to be the leader that cultivates an atmosphere that’s conducive to success?

To be a good leader you have to take calculated risks and when you do, you will certainly make some mistakes along the way.

Good leadership makes people feel that they’re at the very top of their game while demonstrating solid principles of leadership and consistently encouraging others to be at their very best.

Engaging leadership is a process that focuses on the individual’s strengths and contributions in order to drive their motivation and performance to a higher level. When people are encouraged, they feel valued and engaged.

It is a leader’s duty to inspire others, to build and develop other leaders and to encourage people to change the environment where they currently live.

There are many lessons we can learn in the art of leadership, but one of the most important lessons is to start with your heart and lead by example. Don’t ask people to do what you wouldn’t do yourself, and balance connection with a conviction.

Delayed Not Denied

TENNISSHOES SQ-FBMany times our blessings are delayed, but just because they are delayed does not mean that they will be denied. God has a plan for us.  The plan GOD has for us is the plans for our lives for each of us.

But in order to receive the great blessings from God, there must be a dedication to him of the mind, the heart and the soul, to walk in his spirit, spend more time with him and put him first in our life.

The key thing to remember is how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. If you are not where you want to be, look back to where you used to be.

Less Expectations Fewer Disappointments


When life brings us ups and downs, we experience discouragement.  Discouragement is the breeding ground for less expectation, bitterness, resentment, disappointment, and negative emotions.

We experience this life test on a regular basis and we discover that disappointments are not always fair or equal.  The equalizer for these disappointments is to keep a positive spirit and keep doing the right thing.

Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into fulfillment through holding on to your vision.  Most big achievement comes just when you are expecting failure and discouragement.  An essential factor is a persistence – the determination to never allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that will inevitably come.

Don’t let discouragement get the best of you. Discouragement is curable.   Always remember who you are in moments of struggle or fear. Never forget or give up on the hopes and dreams you hold dear to yourself.  As you set out on life’s road, unsure of the path, the most important thing you can do is to always on hold to the vision and the dream.
