Take your Oxygen first. Before attempting to help others in the pursuit of their careers, and career development; be sure that you “take your oxygen first.” That is to say…BE PREPARED. Don’t try to put out a fire without the proper fire-fighting equipment. Don’t try to teach someone how to ski, if you are not an accomplished ski instructor. That said…don’t attempt to coach someone on their career-path if your own career is troubled, or if you consistently fall short of your own goals. Exotic car salesmen are not interested in listening to a Honda sales expert tell them out to sell Rolls-Royce Phantoms.
Too often, we have “weak-leadership” touting themselves as EXPERTS, when, in fact, they are ill-prepared to help themselves, much less…. Someone else. And, by the time their mascaraed is “found-out,” they have likely done MAJOR DAMAGE to their employees, their company, and even…. The very fabric of our Nation, as even in Government, there are Agency Directors moving from agency to agency… carrying their evil habits, and deeds, with them.
This is why we find some CEO’s moving from job-to-job, because they are “allowed” to safely resign, with their DAMAGE (poor leadership) hidden from the next company seeking a professional CEO. The “ill-equipped” CEO, or LEADER, is not interested in “saving the company,” or improving the company, rather, their GOAL, is…. To make a big SPLASH, negotiate a “buy-out,” or parachute option, and then, JUMP-SHIP when things start going SOUR.
This, BTW, is not only found in the CORPORATE WORLD, but… also…in GOVERNMENT. Our Federal Government is the “most in-efficient operating machine” in the nation. Our leaders are ill-prepared to lead our nation…. But are “well experienced” in CORRUPTION, GRAFT, and “lining their own pockets,” through blatant disregard for the law, or our country’s welfare. And, you may note that these same “so-called” leaders…. Think nothing of “passing laws” that forbid, erode, or restrict, the exercise of the FREEDOM that we’ve enjoyed for 250 years.
They’ve “kicked” God out and “invited” satan in. 2 Peter 2:19 – While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. Romans 12:2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. While the bible clearly tells us that we are subject to the “government,” it is clear, too, that if we want “good government,” then ELECT GOOD LEADERS. We see a lot of chaos going on, recently… but rioting, looting, destruction, and even killing… on either side of the issue, is not the answer. The BEST ANSWER is the “election-booth.” Be PREPARED! …Blessings…cjlb…4/29/15.
