Did you “show-up” today? Did you follow up… or complete your task, or assignment? Did you tell the truth about, this or that, the whole truth…so help you God? Did you pay certain bills on time? Did you attend your son’s basketball game, as promised? Did you go shopping with you wife, as she has asked? Or, did you do as Kelly Ripka did…skip out on the “show?”
Showing up? Not the kind that…where you meet the guys for a drink after work…for sure you’ll be there for that… or that weekend fishing expedition. No…I mean, like, meeting the “role-call.”
The point is this; we all have deadlines, commitments, obligations, and responsibilities; and the question is: are we showing up for these various commitments? Do we perform our moral obligations? Or, have we gone AWOL? As leaders, or future leaders…and EVER hope to be successful… we must learn, early on, to meet our commitments…that is: showing up.
Accepting this responsibility, and diligently fulfilling it… separates the serious contenders for Leadership and success, from those who want it, but not willing to pay the dues that success in life, business, marriage, or our spiritual obligations…requires of us.
2 Corinthians 9:6 tells us… The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. …Blessings…cjlb…4/30/16
