The Anticipation of need

 

jon maxwell empower others

We cannot see the future but anticipation of what a client needs can be accomplished. It takes research and forethought with a level of accuracy. We can use research to help us understand the things our clients will need.  As they grow older they have new needs.  The product we serve them with may need updating and so on.

The products like cars often grow older and less reliable.  Turnover on cars are high compared to that of an airplane.  The price tags are different as well but in each industry, we see them keep coming up with better cars and planes.  These industry leaders are always working to compete, grow, change, and improve.  It makes the whole industry better thanks to the healthy servant attitude.

The varying ways businesses can serve people are limitless but some foundations are always found.

  1. Professionalism

  2. Respect

  3. Trust

  4. Value

  5. Meeting needs

  6. Knowledge

  7. Understanding

  8. introductions (meeting People)

  9. Serving

      There are more that can be added but the value of this book is to help us see examples. We must use our creative minds to think of ways these tools can aid the business owner.  The years we have been in business has taught us to be servants.

      We should be creative servants.  Being creative in serving is an empowering way of leading.  No matter the field the servant leader is a great asset.

       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.

What do we stand for?

God cross

What do we stand for?

I stand for:

The Freedom

Love

Godliness

Families

Kindness

Bridging the gaps of trust

Loving those who even hurt us

Understanding other viewpoints

Compassionate ministry – helping others

Absolute truth

Values

Morals

American Flag and pledge

Accountability

Friendship

The cross

I stand for one nation under God.

This is not an exhaustive list but a beginning. We all stand for something as doing nothing is still doing something.  We should be open to learn, humble, but solid in our beliefs.  The goal is not to tell you what to stand for because we all must work that out for ourselves.  I am not advertising political parties but advertising true love of our country and values in America. I understand some of the people here are not from America, but we all can make a stand on moral values. We all know lying, stealing, and so on are wrong.

I love people and believe that we are all created with priceless value.  We are created for an incredible purpose in life, your purpose.  I believe we should value life, value healthy relationships, values family, value friendship, and value our neighbors.  We all have great value to add to people and them to us.  We may not always agree but we can do so without hate.  Anger and bitterness are cancers eating away at so many lives today but love and forgiveness is the cure.

I ask now what is you are willing to stand for?

Who’s dream are we living?

dreamstime_xl_35947609-Custom

Who’s dream are we living?

      Dreams must be our own not our parents, friends, bosses, or people we look up too.  They must be important to us. The dream must have a why factor. If not we unlikely will not accomplish the dream.

     The why factor is the reason we the dream moves us to action.  It must be a reason that will propel us into action. The why bring clarity and results in our lives as the passion to achieve the why out weights the fear factor.

 

 

What is in my control?

      Is the Dream something within our actual control or not?  Does our dream depend upon our own skills only or also the help of others?  Is the skills sets, education, and abilities all something you can do or learn?  These are questions to answer as we consider the dream

Is there passion to follow through?

       This is the passion question. Think of your last great accomplishment. How much energy did it require of you? Is your dream important enough that you will put forth the energy necessary over the time required?

This is a brief excerpt from my new book coming out very soon.  I wanted to share this portion as it is relevant to our discussions lately.

Fail or do not succeed.

fail-forward-2-1148x667

I would rather try to accomplish things than do nothing.

Today I am dedicating this post to all of us who try.

Questions to ponder:

Would you rather try to do something and fail or do nothing at all?

Do you care more about what people think than about your dreams?

Is it worth the risk of trying, making a mistake, and learning from it?

Some people will answer these quickly but I want us to be honest and slow down.  Really ask yourself these questions.  How many things in life did I not attempt because we fear failure or what others may think.  People seem to love judging others.  Some people have a hard time believing someone can become more than their limited thinking will allow.

If I am honest I know there are many things.  I did not start writing till I was much older because of what someone said to me many years ago.  There are businesses I did not start and other things I did not try to accomplish worrying what others thought and my own inabilities.  I now understand that the worst question is the one we do not ask.  The biggest failure in life are the dreams we do not attempt and the things we allow others to stop us from trying.

P.S. disclaimer quick I am not talking about immoral things or drugs, crazy acts.  I also am talking about trying things that we can learn and grow at.  It takes mistakes to become great at things, even mediocre. When are kids we do not stop trying to talk or walk because we fail, do we? We keep trying till we do it.

I understand not everyone will enjoy hearing me speak publicly but I do not do it for that reason.  I know not everyone will like what I write.  The fact is some people will not like my personality.  It is okay, I love people and care about others and with that comes rejection.  If we truly want to make a difference in life we will face others who push back.  Change is hard.  I remember in school being punched in the face and telling this guy the next swing I punch back.  He wanted to be friends after that, crazy but that is life.

People often do not even care until they know how much we care.  Sometimes they still do not care but I choose to love and care about others anyway.  I choose to try to make a difference, to grow, become better, help others, and become who I was created to be.  What about you, this post is not all about me it’s about those who choose to dare read it.

 Will you challenge yourself to step out in faith to grow and follow your life’s purpose?

Will you fail forward?

 

Breakthrough week 3 – What are we Building in our lives.

building 3 

Breakthrough week 3

What are we building in our lives.

  • Do we have fear of not accomplishing something in life?

  • Do we have a drive to become more than we already are?

  • Are we stuck in a rut of life?

There are questions this week I want us to explore.  The questions are above.  Does the fear of not accomplishing something in our lives impact us to do more?  The fear that one day we will grow older and our dreams will have slipped away.  People get into their lives and they so easily get stuck a rut.  Ruts are easy to get stuck in but require us to work hard to get out of.

Genesis 11:3

They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.

Have you ever been in a snow storm and found yourself stuck in a rut?  How much work did it require to get out of that rut. It can be easy to continue in a rut but when we reach the destination that rut takes us in we can be very disappointed.  Yet people often stay in different ruts of their lives and then look back and say:  I wish I had done things differently.  I would have done this or that but…….

  • We all have built into the fabric of who we are the longing to build something.

  • We want to have an impact in some way in this world.

  • The question is what are we doing about it?

The facts are that we need to work hard to get out of the ruts in our lives, businesses, or whatever area we they are in.

In the very begging of life, we see that early in history people had instilled in them the desire to build things.  We all have this desire to build and grow.  If we do not follow those instincts we will be unfulfilled when we reach the end of life.  We are created in the image and likeness of God so it should not surprise anyone that we are meant to build.  Genesis starts by God building or creating the earth. We too have this creative and building inside of us in some form.

Foundations Of Buildings

Matthew 7:24-27

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.

We need to have our lives built upon a great foundation.  When we try to build our lives on a foundation that is not solid.  Many people make a lot of money and find what many call successes in life.  They still are empty and not left fulfilled.  Things can never fill the void inside we are all created to have filled.  There is a spiritual void we need filled, the need to have purpose, and accomplish something worthwhile.

This week we need to focus on building our lives on a proper foundation.  We also need to look at ruts we that can hurt us in our purpose.  Ruts often get us off track and if we lose focus we can find the years go by without accomplishing what we intended.

Love is intoxicating

True love is intoxicating and fulfilling

We often think of intoxicating as only emotions but it so much more. When we are intoxicated we are filled with love or full of love. The intoxicating love moves us to do things we normally would not do. This can be an incredible positive action in our lives or it can be hurtful.

When we are full of love we are like as magnet. We are even like a fire that is catching as others will be warmed by the Love we have. We may even be partly responsible for setting others a blaze with Love.

What is intoxicating love?

I will be revealing this in my next post and more to come. Watch for my new book as well intoxicating love.

Love is passionate, love is strong, love is truthful, love is forgiving, love is powerful, love is eternal, love is intoxicating, love is believing, love never fails it stands the test. True Love is endless it will endure for eternity

 I wonder what the world would look like if we all practiced True Love…..

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8)
