Leading Who?

It is said that when you are an employee, you put in 8 hours of work.  When you are the leader you work half days!  Now let me clarify not 4 hours!  12 HOURS OR MORE! 

This is a different picture.  As the leader you show up!  You stay and you do not look at the clock!  You come in on week ends!  You leave family sitting in the parking lot while you encourage a new employee to see options!  To not give up!  To see that they are added value to your team!  Leaders go the distance for others.  You make sure to say Thank You!  You take time to stop bad behavior and to break strong holds when team mates are struggling.  You get up even when you don’t think you want to!  You don’t complain.  You trust others to bring their best because you bring your best!

Who is leading?  Is it you?  Or is it bigger than you!  You are given gifts from God.  Some people will be glad to work the 8 hours.  This is okay!  Not everyone is the leader.  However,  to be a leader you need to remember you are accountable.  Leaders fall down! Leaders fail and they over come great obstacles to be better.  Better at serving their people.  Better at giving time to help others see that they can do more.

Leaders work on their attitudes so that when they are focused on big decisions that they see positive perspective and help others see positive options.  Leaders look for opportunity to help others be more!  Taking time to evaluate their teams strengths!

Leaders are to provide hope.  Scripture to study “You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.  Psalms 119

For me and my employees,  I will follow God to lead others!  83dbc83e3b2cf7cbd9d20f3cb9319952

The Spin

It seems as if I have been in a Spin!  I have been so busy with Granola Box my new company that I have just been spinning.  Tonight I took time to go work out with my daughter.  My sister has a 24 hour gym and Kelsey had wanted to look into membership.

Kelsey sent her a message and Deanna told her we could come anytime at no cost.  What a kind thing to do for us!   We tried a spin class that Kelsey did not like.  So we then  lifted free weights and played with the medicine balls.  We both felt a bit out of place.

As we go this will become more comfortable.   But it was a bit uncomfortable tonight.  Which brings me back to things that create spins in our lives.  Change creates spins in our lives.  Some people love the spin of new.  Some do not!

I tend to not like change and when it happens I then deal with the spin of it.  I tend to try to plan of the spins so when they come I can be prepared for any outcome.

I am in the spin of my life right now with starting a new career for my daughters to eventually run.  a Marketing company and studying to be a real estate agent.  Taking back my life on my terms came down to if I have to be spinning plates.  I am going to be spinning my own plates!   I am so glad that I know that I can do what ever I put my mind too.  Don’t ever not believe that what you want is not attainable!  Go for it!  The spin is going to happen anyway so why not really jump in and do what you dream about!

Life is short!  Don’t let others tell you NO you CAN NOT!  Show them YES YOU CAN!

Be brave and go for the dream!  Who knows you might find new joy and a new chapter of YOU!
