In a world that has been overwhelmed by mismanagement, greed and unnecessary waste, it’s now more important than ever that we help re-build our world in a positive way

In a world that has been overwhelmed by mismanagement, greed and unnecessary waste, it’s now more important than ever that we help re-build our world in a positive way. By implementing practices that are designed to empower our lives, we not only change ourselves, we change the world!

Below are empowering principles that will change your life:

One of the qualities that true ‘world-shapers’ value highly is integrity. Walking our talk means that our words and actions align and we deliver. Often this means clearing our slate from past negative experiences which frees our mind and emotions to move forward positively.

You will then be open to attaining a deeper, richer and more fulfilling experience of life. Now, more than at any other time in history, you have the opportunity to thoroughly assess your life and to become greater than you ever imagined!

Self-awareness is setting your intentions with clarity. No matter what it is you do in life, you’re either living ‘awake’ or ‘asleep’ to your daily thoughts, words and actions. By choosing to set your intentions clearly each day, you actually set a standard or expectation that affects you every moment of the day. This is the essence of living with purpose.

Intention leads to action – either positive or negative – so choose your intention with care. Break your intentions into segments with affirmative statements such as: “Today I intend to feel magnificent.” “Today I intend to radiate love.” “Today I intend to express gratitude.” Etc

By living with integrity and clear intention you’re all set to become a leader. Your new-found sense of leadership automatically opens up new doors and paths to greatness. You will begin to speak differently and see with wider vision. People you know will begin to relate to you in a more enhanced way because you are living on a higher or more advanced level. You now move in life with confidence, knowing that you trust yourself and have the ability to lead others as others sense they can trust you.

Visionaries articulate their dream (or purpose) in a way that others comprehend with ease. Accompanied with passion and determination, a vision ignites us from within and radiates outwardly – inspiring people to participate – bringing the vision to fruition.

Vision is intended to have a positive impact. At times, visions contain ‘radical messages’ that are not always popular but, as we have observed throughout history, visionaries hold true to their beliefs, are inspired by faith and bring their dream to fruition by the courage of their convictions.

Every choice and decision you make rests upon your ability to discern and take appropriate action. By assessing your life – even if it’s only over a one week period – you can actually see what decisions you have made and on what thoughts and feelings they were based. You can then progress to larger time frames to ensure the decisions you are making are based on discernment – not illusion.

Some people mistake discernment for judgment – but they are worlds apart. Discernment is based on observing what we say and what we do ourselves. Judgment is usually based on what others say and do – see the difference? We can assess or judge the actions of others and then discern whether those actions are appropriate and acceptable for us to replicate.

Now that you have finished reading my article, I want you to ask yourself this question – “How serious am I about becoming great and making a positive impact?”

So, what are you currently doing to make that your reality? Take a few moments to write down one thing that you’ll commit to doing today and set a time to do it. I believe that YOU can become a great leader!

9-1-1 Leadership. How do you know if you are a leader or a manager?  Certainly if you Google this topic you will get a laundry list of different articles or answers.  There are many well known spiritual leaders who have written numerous books on leadership, my favorite being Bill Hybels.  I would like to take an approach that comes from personal work experience as well as a biblical example.  I have never seen it explained the way I will attempt to in this blog.  I like to call this the 9-1-1 approach to leadership.  The “9” stands for the 90% that is working correctly in your organization day in and day out.  Let’s face it, not everything is broken on a daily basis.  If you are a positive person it is easy for you to identify the areas that are hitting on all cylinders.  The first “1” stands for the 10% that is not going well and is causing you headaches.  Some organizations recognize the 10%, while others do not even know the 10% exist.  And the last “1” stand for the up to 10 times longer it will take to identify, fix and change the behavior behind the 10% not going well.

So back to the initial question, how do you know if you are a leader or a manager?  In my opinion, if you focus and spend a majority of your time on the 90% that is going well…then I would call you a manager.  However, if you spend most of your time and energy in the 10% area that is not going well…I would call you a leader.  Managers keep the organization rolling and steering the ship on a day to day basis.  They are there to “manage” what processes/policies already exist within the organization.  They quickly identify situations that start to slip or get out of whack with what is the norm.  Managers have typically been handed a proven solution and told to carry on the way it was designed.

On the other side, leaders tend to indentify, react and solve the challenges causing the organization’s 10% problems. It takes special characteristics to be able to first identify the problems, then to be able to put in place an action plan that will “change behavior”. The task of changing behavior is absolutely critical to solving the 10% problem. Some leaders fail because they identify the problem, yet fail to implement the proper tools and guidance to change the behavior behind the problems. Leaders are out in front of the managers and the daily troops identifying the 10% and other issues and surprises that are coming. Let me add here, that a leader who solely focuses on the 10% will not be a very popular leader among the masses of the organization. A well balanced leader needs to spend some time on the 90%, as to reward, encourage and reinforce the day to day agents who are getting it done in the trenches. In my experience, I like to talk about the 90% publicly in employee meetings or while I am walking the floor among the masses. I try to talk about the 10% behind closed doors with the managers and the ones that need to help solve the identified 10% problem.

I believe Jesus would take a very similar approach if he was running an organization today. Jesus was the ultimate example of leadership, and in His parable of the lost sheep, the Sheppard left the 99 sheep to find the one that was lost, see Matthew 18: 10-14. In the parable, the Sheppard could have easily stayed in the field and “managed” the 99, yet he took it upon himself as “leader” of the flock to find the one that was causing problems. I know we are not talking about lost souls, but why would I not follow a great biblical example of how to lead the “flock” or in today’s terms…the organization.

Definition of a Problem: What do I have, and what do I want…the gap between those two is the problem. -A.R. Bernard
