What is your Purpose? What is your purpose statement?

purpose statement is a declarative sentence which summarizes the specific topic and goals of a document. It is typically included in the introduction to give the reader an accurate, concrete understanding what the document will cover and what he/she can gain from reading it. … Concise – one or two sentences.

Life is a journey and we are in this journey together so if you are willing to share your purpose statements please do so.  I believe in working together in accomplishing the goals we all have to serve others. So how can we Pray and support you?

 

 

Core Values

Core value: Customers

Customers are gold in all businesses.  It is the customer that we all need to purchase or use our services.  When people purchase our services, or use our products we must put ourselves in their shoes.  The way we see people should be through the eyes of servants.  The servant puts the person they serve and their interests first.

      We have seen a shortage in America of serving others.  When we were a young country we saw the principles of customer service. Customer service is more than saying thank you.  The person who smiles we often refer to as having customer service skills.

   The true nature of customer service is having a product or service that people need to make their life better.  It is filling a need in our society.  There are industries that started out meeting needs.

Fire fighters

Military

Ministers

Natural Resources

Realitors

      The list above is not exhaustive but it allows us to see how these are key professionals in our country. Look at the list and then consider what would happen if these people acted in just their own best interest. We have seen examples of some people who do act in their best interest and trust is lost by many.

     The American culture is built on trust and honor.  The trust that professionals will do what is right for others and be paid for that trust. We always had a culture in America of trust worthy professionals that have had great impacts on society.

       The professional is defined by Webster as “the conduct, aims, or qualities that characterize or mark a profession or a professionalperson.”

Perry the Wise Owl

 

Perry book

We are excited to have our new book coming out today.

Perry the Wise Owl series allows adults to instill moral principles in the lives of children. This book on lying and stealing will help children understand why lying can hurt so many people. Perry teaches Tommy great truth about lying and about taking things that do not belong to him. These are issues children deal with as they grow up, and it is important they come to have character in their choices.

These books will not only help children that you may know, but with our scholarship program, it can help others further their education. So, get a book for yourself and one as a gift. It will keep giving forever.

Empowering Ideas

Empowering Ideas

We must take some time to practice listening to ideas and exploring them. It is only then, we can understand if they have merit or not.  Ideas will come in many shapes but a lot of them will not be used right now.  Some may have the potential to be the next big idea.  So, it is worth taking some time and writing them down.  Taking time to work out the details allows us to find the wisdom of ideas.

     Remember, there must be an element of faith, purpose, actions and logic in how to accomplish these ideas. Some ideas should be kept later that is why a journal is a good idea.  These creative ideas can be a wealth of information which can earn someone a lot of income.  We pay for value in our society, if these ideas come with a lot of value. They could always pay well.  They could also change a lot of lives.

     Another key is to become a thinker, someone who exercises their brains.  There is a difference between daydreaming and being a thinker.  Daydreamers dream of lots of wonderful things but no actions are required because they will not follow up with intentions.  The thinker will think things through.  They will decide the actions to allow the idea to develop.  The thinker then will put some actions steps to ideas to determine if they are usable now or later possibly. Daydreamers are a dime a dozen but thinkers are not found near as often with all the work required.

      We must move to the thinker side of things to discover if it is a good or bad idea.  We will get better at this process over time and be able to take what once may have been a weakness and make it a strength.

      God will give us wisdom as we work through our ideas.  We are given a great power to think through ideas to work towards making them happen.  We need faith and actions working together in the right direction to accomplish the goal.

Foresight – The Power to see.

 

Foresight

Foresight is a characteristic that enables the servant-leader to understand the lessons from the past, the realities of the present, and the likely consequence of a decision for the future. It is also deeply rooted within the intuitive mind. Foresight remains a largely unexplored area in leadership studies, but one most deserving of careful attention.

Let me put it another way. Foresight is seeing what others may not see ahead that is coming.  There were a lot of people who did not see the internet as a life changing tool.  Many people today are just a short way from true success and breakthrough in many areas of life.  The key is they need to exercise the mind to begin to see foresight.

     We are born with an amazing tool, the mind.  The fact is Doctors will tell you we are lazy with our minds most of the time.  We need to use thinking skills to allow us to tap the potential we to grow.  The potential to find the answers to problems. Today let us continue the journey of exercising our minds to see foresight.

Servant Leadership

The servant is defined as “one who performs duties for others” (Webster). When we focus on helping others reach their goals and accomplish their dreams. Faith and action are about to blossom. The greatest things that happened too many of the great Entrepreneurs were by accident.  While trying to serve those people they are dedicated to them who made a discovery. Mother Teresa said “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”.
