“…Nothing happens until we SPEAK-UP…..”



Nothing happens until we SPEAK-UP.   I’m not one to sit around waiting for something to happen.  I’ve always been the aggressor. My job is to make it happen.  Not bragging…just doing my job.  God has given me certain SKILLS and it’s my duty to use them according to His will.  Serious leaders don’t sit around waiting…they get busy.  When working on a project, I
don’t compromise negotiating skills just to get a project moving, but rely on strategy to fuel the project. You can Google “aggressor” and draw your own conclusions as to what it means.  It does not fit my scenario. I make no effort to intimate anyone, to force, or to scare. I just don’t wait for events to unfold by others in command.  Example:  Once I was associated with a $100 Million company who had lost its national franchise.  I was brought in to save the company, and regain the franchise.  I don’t deny I utilized some unusual techniques, but not the “killer mode,” rather the “convincing mode.”  My job was to convince National that returning the franchise to the company was in the best interest of both the national and state-wide organization.  Although an impossible task, with help from many others; it was a success.  Five years later, the business sold for Millions of dollars; where, on the day they
lost the franchise… it had no value.  Colossians – 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as
your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.  Mark 9:23 And Jesus said to him, “If you can! All things are possible for one who believes.”  Luke 11:9 And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. ….Blessings…cjlb…12/7/13
