Banish Fear

Leaders,

Did you know that fear is a learned response. Our brains are hard wired to love and face reality not run from it. Good News…as fear is learned, we can unlearn it.  How? With and through Faith!

Heb 13:5b-6(AMP)

for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] [Josh. 1:5.] So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? [Ps. 27:1;118:6.]”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:5b-6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

As a man of Faith, and one who walks in and under authority, I have difficult situations that I am faced with, fear attempts to cause me to stumble, but I know the promise of God.

Leaders, know the promises of God!

Leaders, Lead!

Semper Fi!

Clarity

Leaders,

  Be certain that you are clear on your direction. Be certain on your goals, objectives and strategies to deploy. 

Those that are following your lead, are expecting that you know where you are going.  And trusting that you know how to get there.

CAUTION: Don’t step up to the leaders plate, if you have no vision of where you are headed. 

Where there Is no vision, the people perish – Proverbs 29:18a
Leaders, Lead!

Semper Fi!

Integrity

Leader’s Today’s Topic is Intergrity

 

INTEGRITY

It’s self-evident that a hypocrite is unqualified to guide others toward attaining higher character. No one respects someone who talks a good game but fails to play by the rules. What a leader does will have a greater impact on those he or she wishes to lead than what the leader says. A person may forget ninety percent of what a leader says, but he or she will never forget how the leader lives.

Bill Hendricks encountered an illustration of this principle during the days of the flourishing real estate market of the 1980s. He met a developer who claimed to have woven what he called “Biblical principles of business” into his deals. But when the market went south, he skipped town and left his investors to pick up the pieces—and the debts.

Another of Bill’s friends stands in sharp contrast to the first. He too was a land developer. He too talked of integrating Biblical principles into his business. And when the market crashed, so did his empire. But unlike the man who ran away, this land developer, as a matter of conscience, worked out a plan to pay back his investors.*

Which of these two would you rather follow in terms of integrity? There is simply no substitute for a man or woman of consistent Christlike character.

That doesn’t imply that any of us will be perfect. In fact, the New Testament doesn’t call for perfect leaders; it calls for those who are models of progress in their faith. Paul instructed Timothy to be diligent in following godly teachings. “Give yourself wholly to them,” he wrote, “so that everyone may see your progress” (1 Timothy 4:15). That’s sound advice for us today, as well.
