Your Daily Speed Bumps!

Speed bumps get your attention. You can't ZOOM over them. If you did, you would wreck your car. It's not worth it. It's best to slow down and gently deal with it/them!

The same thing applies to your work/job. There will be situations that will need to be addressed (i.e. speed bumps). You have the ability to absorb them and NOT have them ruin your day.

You can probably agree that in one way or another, you'll manage to deal with them. If you didn't, you probably wouldn't last long in your job or line of work.

Once you get into the groove of identifying and effectively dealing with speed bumps, you're going to be pleasantly surprised at how much more manageable your day is going to seem.

Try it!

Give Yourself Some "Cred!"

Working hard? Not feeling appreciated? Give yourself some cred or a pat on the back. As simple as this sounds, it helps! We ALL need to step back and access our body of work. Are you a good parent? Are you a great leader? Are you a great team player? Give yourself some cred. Recognizing your contribution from within yourself, is actually more powerful than hearing it from others. Almost everyone likes to get a compliment; but if it's NOT happening, don't let it get you down. Recognize yourself for what you do well!

Take A Step!

One of the reasons people "stay put" with their dream(s) is that they're analyzing it too much. They test  the water by putting their big toe in the water, and do nothing else. If this is you, jump in and see what you're made of. Yes, it can be scary but  you won't know the positive wonderment of it all if you're playing it safe. Your first step (or jump) into the unknown can be the best thing that's ever happened to you.

Leadership And You (Part 28)

Parents help shape the world's future by the way they shape their children's values. The first step toward helping children live rightly is for parents to live rightly. Your actions are often copied by those closest to you. What kind of example are you setting for your children?

A Fresh Anointing

Joel Osteen is an established author and pastor. Some “Bible-thumpers” don’t like him. They think he’s fake or too polished. I disagree with them. He’s a preacher who’s able to take the word of God and adapt it to everyday life. I wish more pastors could take a Bible passage and “teach it” from a contemporary/functional point of view.

Recently, I caught one of Joel’s t.v. programs. He mentioned how it’s important to ask/pray for a “fresh anointing” everyday. An anointing can be compared to a blessing on your life. We all have special gifts that have been given to us (exclusively). These gifts can range from our  line of work/career (i.e. teaching, medicine), to traits like honesty or kindness. When you get in touch with what you do well; you’re operating under an anointing that’s given to you  by God.

Joel stresses that we ALL need to have our anointing(s) refreshed or recharged on a daily basis. This is similar to recharging your laptop so that it maintains social media interests etc. What’s the best way to be refreshed? Get up each day and ask God for a fresh anointing. A refresher will provide you with your very best.

Question for you: Are your personal/professional skills ALWAYS at your best? Can you see some skills that aren’t their sharpest because of fatigue etc.?
