Leaders Must Haves – How to Lead Effectively

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

If you want to be an effective leader, learn to be a servant first.

Learn to humble yourself. Humility is not thinking less of yourself; It is thinking of yourself less – C.S. Lewis.

It is one of the greatest assets a leader must have, it is more important than power and fame.  Your humility will stand up after your fame and power has gone.

Humble leaders magnetize all the grace of God, They are leaders the world needs.

Simon Sinek – a motivational speaker and the author of the best-selling book, Start with Why, shared a great story:

There was a former undersecretary of defense who was invited to speak in a large conference about a thousand of people.  He was standing in the stage with this cup of coffee in Styrofoam cup. After he sipped, he said, Last year I spoke in these exact the same conference, I was still the undersecretary of defense. When I spoke here last year they flew me here business class. When I arrived at the airport somebody is waiting for me to take me in my hotel room.

The next morning, I came downstairs and there’s someone waiting in the lobby to greet me and drove me into this exact the same venue. They took me into a green room where they handed me a cup of coffee in a beautiful ceramic cup.

Now, I am no longer the undersecretary.  I flew here coach. I took a taxi into my hotel. When I came down to the lobby this morning, I took another taxi into this venue. I came in front door and found my way backstage. And when I ask someone “Do you have any coffee?” He pointed to the coffee machine at the corner and I poured myself a cup of coffee into this Styrofoam cup. He said, “The cup is never meant for me, it is meant for the position I held. I deserve a Styrofoam cup.”

As you gain fame and fortune, as you gain position and authority people will treat you better. They will hold doors open for you. They will get you a cup of coffee without you even ask. They will call you Sir and Ma’am and they will give you stuff. None of that stuff is meant for you, it is meant for the position you hold. You deserve a Styrofoam cup. Always remember this lesson of HUMILITY.

Are You A Good Steward of What You Are Entrusted?

Are you a Good steward of what you have entrusted?

Money is the number 1 factor that steal us from God.

“The rich become richer and the poor become poorer”.

I heard this phrases many times. And I was reminded by the parable of the tenants. Sometimes, the number one reason of your poverty is poor spending habits and your extravagant lifestyle. You have been splurging money for things that don’t have value or on things that depreciates in value.

Here is the parable of the talents, found in Matthew 25: 14–29 (ESV Version). “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.

He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.

Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. And he who had received the five talents came forward, ringing five talents more, saying, “Master, you delivered me five talents; here I have made five talents more.”

His master said to him, “well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.

And he also who had two talents came forward saying, “Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.” His Master said to him, “well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.”

He also who had received the one talent came forward saying, “Master, I knew you to be hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, so I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.”

But his master answered him, “you wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.

Believing in yourself is the key foundation of success in any measure. How you see yourself affects how you live and spend your day. It doesn’t mean bragging and being boastful (that is arrogance). It simply means loving yourself first because you cannot give what you do not have, and simply believing in your ability to succeed.

Self-Confidence is crucial and essential in developing ones willpower and ability to achieve. It is a positive belief that you can achieve something big in the future.

My favorite you tube vlogger alpha m. described it as unwavering belief in your ability, values and self-worth.

Never interchange it with arrogance. Arrogance is telling everybody and bragging about your achievements.

The Different Types of Battles We Face Everyday

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

 

“Half the battle is won if you know the enemy more than they know you. If you know your enemies you can strategize better and more intelligently.”

I heard this preaching many Sundays ago but was still fresh in my imagination. It had changed my approach in dealing with conflicts. It gave me clearer picture on how to deal with one. There are lots of fights we are facing each day, from destructive words to emotional battles to actual fights, that has the power to make or break us. We cannot control the emotion and anger of other people; they can say anything out of our control. The only thing we could do is not to listen or to ignore them.

My Borderless World

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

Life is full of borders. We sometimes feel that we live inside the box, so limited. But if you look at the horizon, you’ll see, you have a “borderless” world.

it’s true, Life is full of chaos and mysteries that has the ability to stop or prevent us from fighting for the things we want in life. Poverty is one, many students these days choose their course in college according to what is affordable. You want to be a doctor or a lawyer but because your parents cannot afford it, you settled for something “less” even if it’s not your passion and potential. But after graduation, you didn’t pursue it because it’s boring to you. It is not what you want to do.

My Life Goals – All things are Possible

How are you? What are your goals in life?

Yes, 2018 is here and everybody is busy creating their New Year’s resolution, from weight loss, family goals to financial independence. Myself included, my goals are simple yet complicated.

And until now I am optimistic that everything will work out for good. Nothing is Impossible with GOD, 2018 will be the greatest year of my life.

My greatest ambition is to become a multi-millionaire of the next generation; I want to be a president or a CEO of my own company. When I told this to my husband, he burst in laughter and said, “You’re insane”.

Others may laugh at your dreams but there’s nothing wrong or bad about dreaming and aiming for the farthest star.

Your goals should push you to work your hardest. Go for the highest goals possible. Dreams that will motivate you to act despite of fear. Aim for the farthest star and believe all things will be possible. But of course, while dreaming take action. You will never reach your goals if you don’t put enormous amount of effort and sacrifices on that dream. Hard work, consistency, and Perseverance are the keys to your success and of course, your attitude, you must be tough to follow through.

The formula of success is simple but it’s not an easy road. If you are not emotionally, mentally and physically ready, you will end up quitting at the middle.
