There are many ways people handle being wrong, but if we are focused on becoming a better person, we should see being wrong as an opportunity for growth. Being wrong can be humiliating, but ifContinue reading “WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE WRONG?”

Hypocrisy Has No Place In Leadership

One of the worst habits leadership can get themselves into is the need to point out everyone else’s faults while making excuses and exceptions for their own. When leadership puts more emphasis on others’ faults and failures, all the while ignoring their own, leadership loses. A good way for leadership to lose credibility in theirContinue reading “Hypocrisy Has No Place In Leadership”

Stop Validating Every “Feeling”

We live in a culture where whatever we feel must be right. We are told to validate others feelings and accept people for who they are. We are called haters, phobics, and many other lovely names when we choose to stand for truth rather than fiction. Society demonizes anyone who speaks truth these days, whichContinue reading “Stop Validating Every “Feeling””

Ignorance Is Your Downfall

It has been said that, “Ignorance is bliss.” Have you ever stopped to think about what that means? Ignorance is defined as a lack of knowledge or information. Bliss is defined as perfect happiness and great joy. In other words, not knowing something leads to joy and happiness. Not really sure I agree with thatContinue reading “Ignorance Is Your Downfall”

It takes more strength and self control to lead with humility and acts of service thanContinue reading “Service and Humility Are Not Weak Leadership Qualities”

Don’t Lead With Your Ego

There are many things that can make a leader fail at being a leader, but the worst of them all is when a leader leads with their ego. The ego is a catalyst for many problems, and when we choose to lead with our ego, we choose to miss the purpose and meaning of trueContinue reading “Don’t Lead With Your Ego”

Patience

Today, I want to talk about something I am absolutely horrible at. I have struggled with patience my entire life. Whether it’s in traffic, dealing with incompetent people, or waiting for something in a drive thru, I have always struggled with being patient. I know that impatience is a horrible character trait, and I haveContinue reading “Patience”

Our Job Is To Listen

“Are you listening to anything I’m saying?” Have you ever had this question asked to you? Better yet, have you ever asked this question in your head to the person you went to for help, advice, or to resolve an issue? There have been many times I have asked myself this question about people IContinue reading “Our Job Is To Listen”

Finish Well

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit” (Will Durant). I have used this quote before in previous posts. I agree wholeheartedly with Durant’s summation of Aristotle’s work, and I also  believe his quote embodies the very essence of who we are. When we are getting closer andContinue reading “Finish Well”
