Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt like you’ve now them your entire life? I’ve certainly experienced that before.
It’s truly amazing what can happen when you get into an atmosphere of people that build you up rather than tear you down, where people encourage and challenge you to be the best you can be.
Today, I want to take a moment and encourage you to spend time with people who inspire you to reach for new heights. When you associate with successful people, their excitment for life is contagious and you’ll end up catching new visions for yourself and your life. If you put yourself in victorious atmospheres, you’ll develop a winning mindset. So lets set out to make a new plan for you. It’s time for you to soar with the eagles and stop pecking around with those stinky chickens.
Last I looked the eagles were high in the sky while the chickens were stuck on the ground. Choose to be an eagle and soar high in the sky. Live with faith and expectancy, and then let God do the rest. He’ll take you places you’ve always dreamed of.
From my heart to yours,
Have you every wanted to be a leader that helps grow other leaders? Yeah? OK cool. Let’s talk about leadership.
Did you know that not everyone you influence will think the same way you do? You have to help them not only believe that they can succeed, but also show them that you want them to succeed. You’re probably asking…How do you do that?
Well, theres 3 steps.
Step 1: Expect it. People can sense your underlying attitude no matter what they say or do. If you have an expectation for someone to be successful, they will know it.
Step 2: Verbalize it. People really need to hear you tell them that you believe in them and that you want them to truly succeed. Become a positive cheerleader of their success.
Step 3: Reinforced it. You can never do too much when it comes to believing in people. See here’s the secret with leadership – Once people recognize and understand that you geniunely want to see them succeed and that you’re committed to helping them, they will begin to believe in themselves and will continue to go on and accomplish it. It’s really that simple.
Just like my motto – Love deelpy. Serve others. Lead faithfully. Find someone to invest in today.
From my heart to yours,
Have you ever had a dream so big it scared you? So big that you never spoke about it out loud? Well here’s the thing… if you live your dream and successfully share it, others will buy into it. People have a desire to follow a leader with a great dream. It only takes one great idea and a passionate leader to make it happen. Now more than ever, people are looking for heroes. Unfortunately, many of us are looking in places and will leave us disappointed. Places such as Sports, music, movies and television. Wouldn’t you agree? The real heroes are the leaders who help others achieve success and who take others along the journey with them. It all begins with a dream… your dream. What are you dreaming about achieving? What change would you like to see in the world? As Winifred Newman said “vision is the world’s most desperate need. There are no hopeless situations, only people who think hopelessly.” Share your vision with someone today. I believe in you!
If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Not in terms of vacations, but in your life. Your answer to that question does a lot to determine whether or not you’re successful.
We’re all on a journey. We are traveling inevitably toward the end of our lives. So the real question for us is whether we’re going to select a destination and steer our course for it, or allow ourselves to be swept along the tide, letting others determine where we end up.
The choice is entirely up to us. What specific destination are you staring your life towards? What MAP are you using to get where you want to go?
Where is your heart when it comes to serving others?
Do you desire to become a leader for the perks and the benefits? Or are you the motivated by a desire to help others?
If you really want to become the kind of leader that people want to follow, you have to to be servant-focused and servant-driven. If your attitude is to be served rather than to serve, you are headed for trouble.
#1 stop dominating people and start listening to them.
#2 Stop role-playing for advancement and start risking for others benefit. and
#3 Stop seeking your own way and starts serving others.
It is true that those who would be great must be like the least and the best servant of all. if you want to lead on the highest level you must be willing to serve on the lowest.
Have you ever tried to help someone and they were totally checked out and not trying to hear what you were saying?
Well thats because you didn’t developed a relationship with them first. leaders often make the common mistake of trying to lead others before developing relationships with them. As you prepare to develop other people, take time to get to know each other. A cool ACRONM that I learned while back to connect with people if FORD, F O R D. It stands for Family, Occupation, Recreation and dreams. As soon as you start asking questions are them in these areas they will begin to open up and share their lives with you.
You will quickly find out all about them, their story, their journey and where they are going in life. Knowing what someones dreams are and asking about them will allow you to connect on a new level. People love to talk about themselves. So try it out today. If you meet someone new. Ask them about their family, occupation, recreation and dreams. Just listen and see what happens.
