TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR PART TODAY AND ALLOW OTHERS TO TAKE THEIRS.
Warren Buffet said,
“Sometimes it’s not how hard you row the boat. It’s how fast the stream is going.”
Whenever you’re dealing with your leader, you need to pay attention to the flow of the stream.
It is very important to learn to communicate your point of view clearly to your leader. It is your responsibility to communicate what you know and give your perspective on an issue. But it’s one thing to communicate and another to coerce your leader. The choice your leader makes is not your responsibility. Besides, if you have made your point clearly, you are unlikely to help your cause by continuing to hammer away at it with your leader.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “You do not lead by hitting people over the head—that’s assault, not leadership.”
If you keep repeating yourself after your point’s been made, you’re just trying to get your own way.
CANDOR: Graciously telling the hard truth and demanding to hear it from others. (Q3.8).
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
1 PETER 5:8
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
2 CHRONICLES 15:7
But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”
If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.
William J. Clinton
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.

WRONG EMAIL ADDRESS:
A couple going on vacation but his wife was on a business trip so he went to the destination first and his wife would meet him the next day.
When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.
Unfortunately, when typing her address, he mistyped a letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.
When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.
At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:
Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.
P.S. Sure is hot down here.
