“…Peter is ‘reminding’ all of us…to ‘stay awake,’ and to ‘be alert.’ When Jesus returns…will we be ready..?”

1 Peter 1:3-9 Jesus said to his disciples: “Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken […]

“…What’s WRONG with our thinking? I guess some would call that….Stinkin-Thinkin…”

AGE DESCRIMNATION: The joke in State Government is there’s “no age-discrimination.” Fact: Age Discrimination…um…it’s alive and well. The Government (City, County, State) allows “just-retired” employees to return to their jobs, after two weeks mandatory leave…as having not even left the building…. thus collecting their retirement, and in most cases, SSI, and now the new salary. […]

“……If you’re still not convinced that ‘truth is better than fiction’…then…”

SINCERITY = Truth or Consequences: Leaders are obliged to speak the TRUTH. To do otherwise is fraudulently hollow – and the impersonator will be found a betrayer, and… eventually…a failure. A lying leader is always found out….and outed. It makes no difference as to the level of influence one has; be it political (*), public, private, […]

“…There are no short-cuts to success, as every step has a price of admission…”

ADVERSITY vs CAPABILITY: Too often we’re inclined to use adversity as a tool to move our career ahead, when… truth be known, we’re ill-prepared, poorly trained, and weakly committed.   Effectively…we’re using “circumstance and identity theft” to forge ahead…that is… until we’re found out. Some call it…faking it, until we make it. Some may use “adversity” […]

“…She proves to us that anything can be accomplished through hard work, dedication, and faith…”

LEADERSHIP vs DETERMINATION:   She never held public office or involved in corporate leadership, or ownership, but was, however, well known for being blind, mute, and deaf. She was hardly the typical Leader one would hope to follow. She was Helen Keller: born in 1880 on an Alabama Plantation, of middle-class parents. Because of the commitment […]

“…Our markings are not just what we do…that leaves an impression; but also…what we don’t do…”

BOOK MARKINGS… Have you ever read a book, or article, and notice where      the previous reader had made numerous underlining’s, or made notes in the margin? Such a “marking” is an indication that the reader considers the word, phrase, or sentence…to be important to remember, or refer back to. Such markings will not only […]

“…Most Leaders are no different than TV stars who have held the ‘high-ratings’ for numerous seasons…”

STRENGTH vs. weakness: Weak leaders don’t last long. A leader with a “weak-link” will bite the dust sooner than later. Think of a leader like you would a bicycle chain. Unless it is serviced regularly, and this would include “self-improvement” issues…then “it will break!” Strong Leaders, generally… last longer (as they should). Corporate America typically […]

“…It is NEVER too late to give back…by ‘sharing our gifts and successes’ with others…”

Shared …ABILITY: We are told in Matthew 17:20 – “If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed… nothing shall be impossible unto you.” And, we are told, more specifically in… 1 Peter 4:10 – “As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another.” So there you have […]

“…Invite God back into the schools and the work-place….and ‘the home…’”

21ST CENTURY…16 years and counting…. Our Phones are Wireless; our Cooking is Fireless; our Cars are Keyless; our Food is Fatless; our Tires are Tubeless. Our Dress is Sleeveless; our Youth are Jobless; our Leaders are Shameless; our Relationships are Meaningless. Our Attitudes are Careless; our Wives are Fearless; our Babies are Fatherless, and our […]

“…Too often, the motives are illegal, self-serving, or ill-conceived… and surely not…”

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR:   We’ve all heard that cliché.  And, this is true… whether it involves a business forum, a marriage made in heaven, a meal in your favorite restaurant, an education at the most elite university setting, an exotic vehicle, an elected official, a subordinate, and even in a religious setting. Too […]
