You cannot let the past dictate your future progress. We have all done things that we are ashamed of and regret. We constantly live in the tension of where we have been, where we are and where we want to go. To live life moving forward; you must release the guilt of yesterday, the disappointments of today and the fears of tomorrow.
7 Weapons in your Arsenal
A few weeks ago we celebrated the passion of the greatest leader in the history of mankind. Lots of water has passed under the bridge since He was crucified, but his “Startup” remains strong and vibrant, with tentacles in all the known regions of this world. No doubt His leadership exemplified the greatest cutting edge productivity unlike any other leader the world has known.
Anything worth starting has to be something worth sustaining. Therefore, the leader who is interested in the future (as all true authentic leaders should), is someone who is obsessively invested in what will be relevant in the future. His feet are rooted in today’s conquered frontier, but his heart and mind are calculating how relevant his leadership would be not just years from now, but also decades after he is gone. [Read more…]
Fall is my favorite time of the year. The dog days of summer are over, the weather is awesome, the leaves are beginning to turn different colors and my grass is turning brown and I want have to cut it for the next six months. But, the best thing about the fall is football season.
I love to watch High School, College and Professional Football. During the fall season on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday I am watching or listening to a football game.
The reason for the huddle
I love every aspect of football except one part and that is the huddle. I sometimes think the huddle is a waste of time. It slows the pace of the game down. It can take a team out of its flow. My opinion of the huddle is that it can be facilitated in a more strategic way. [Read more…]
This is a re-post from one of the first blogs I posted. The content is very relative today for anyone that is desiring to make their vision a reality. If implemented, the nine motivators in this post can position you for vision success.
What dreams have you spent years talking about but never accomplished? You told yourself and those around you what you were going to do one day. You were excited to tell your dreams to anyone that would listen.
You may have wasted valuable time saying, “One day I am going to start my own business, next month I will start a savings plan or next year I am going back to school”. Seven years, ten jobs and a pile of bills later, you are still saying the same thing. Life is moving and you are still stuck singing the same old song. [Read more…]
I can be very clumsy at times. A few nights ago, I poured a tall refreshing glass of milk to drink with my dinner. During the process of picking up the glass of milk and getting it to my mouth, I felt the cup slipping out of my hand.
I tried to stop it from falling, but to no avail. The glass of milk slipped from my hand, hit the counter top and fell to the floor. There was milk all over the counter top, wall and floor. [Read more…]
My senior year in high school our basketball coach convinced me to run cross country. He said it would build my stamina and endurance. He wanted everyone to be in the best shape possible for the new fast paced running game he was implemented for the up-coming basketball season. I reluctantly took his suggestion and ran cross country.
I will never forget my first day of practice. We started out by running a warm up of one mile. I was okay with that until the coach said we were running to the cross country course. The course was a mile away from the school. [Read more…]
