December 22nd Daily Leadership Message Scriptures and Quotes

I am my brothers keeper …
Pulitzer prize photo…and certainly worthy of that award..
This photo shows two power linemen, Randall Champion and J. D. Thompson, at the top of a utility pole. They had been performing routine maintenance when Champion brushed one of the high voltage lines at the very top. Over 4000 volts entered Champion’s body and instantly stopped his heart (an electric chair uses about 2000 volts).His safety harness prevented a fall, and Thompson, who had been ascending below him, quickly reached him and performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. He was unable to perform CPR given the circumstances, but continued breathing into Champion’s lungs until he felt a slight pulse, then unbuckled his harness and descended with him on his shoulder. Thompson and another worker administered CPR on the ground, and Champion was moderately revived by the time paramedics arrived, eventually making a full recovery.

Daily Quotes

We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”

Thomas Moore

“The glue that holds all relationships together–including the relationship between the leader and the led–is trust, and trust is based on integrity.”

Brian Tracy

“Trust is like blood pressure. It’s silent, vital to good health, and if abused it can be deadly.”

Remember:
Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Courage doesn’t always roar.

Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,

“I will try again tomorrow.”
