Are we building Leaders or are we building Followers in our Daily life.
Either it be with people who look up to us, family, friends, and community, or Strangers we have the opportunity to Influence?
Take advantage of your circumstances. And be a Positive Habit Transfer Leader to The World
Excellent leadership is not only about investing in others; it’s also about investing in yourself.
Some leaders find themselves sitting on a mountain of gold while feeling poor, because they don’t know how to mine for gold in their teams.
If you choose your habits, then you must take responsibility for your results.
Reliability is a two-way street. You get reliable performance from your team by being a reliable leader for them.
Coaching for reliable performance is not a “salt and pepper” practice. You cannot sprinkle a little explaining here and appreciation there and expect reliable performance.
If world class athletes need a coach everyday why wouldn’t your team?
Don’t ask if you won’t listen.
Reliable people consider their commitments as personal promises to others.
Who are We building up in our Daily lives? Are we influencing our Families Friends and Strangers in a Positive Habit Transfer way?
Are We working on Ourselves To Be That Victorious Leader
Are we ?
THIRD: The place in line behind his Creator and Community where a Virtuous Leader places himself.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
“Success isn’t permanent and failure isn’t fatal; it’s the courage to continue that counts.” —Mike Ditka
“Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.” —Unknown
“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

What love is all about
It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 am, when an elderly gentleman, in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He stated that he was in a hurry and that he had an appointment at 9:00 am. I took his vital signs, and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.
On exam it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redressed his wound. While taking care of him, we began to engage in conversation. I asked him if he had a doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for awhile and was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.
As we talked and I finished dressing his wound, I asked if she would be worried if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, and hadn’t recognized him in five years. I was surprised, and asked him, “And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?” He smiled and patted my hand and said, “She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.”
