Everybody wants to be heard, but not many people do what is required.
When you speak, be determined to communicate and to make impact on your audience. However, you will miss this vital opportunity if you don’t put away emotionalism. You need the use of balance and appropriate filters. There are too many misleading depositions presented by impetuous people who only consider how they feel, but not how the audience will perceive what they say.
I’ve seen many a people who have a great message go unheard, because the message is poisoned with anger, bad mouth, and lack of tact.
In this day and time when foolish boldness is taking center stage amongst the gullible, you want to distinguish yourself by not just being a talker or writer but one who intentionally communicates to influence positive action.
Always endeavour to stop and think.
Friendship isn’t sycophancy or blind loyalty; neither is it a mindless and sentimental endorsement of bad behaviour.
The joy of having a true friend should stem from the confidence that they can speak truth to us, inspire us to push harder towards the pursuit of purpose, as well as call our attention to areas where we may be falling short in behaviour or character.
Many people dig deeper into the ‘dark hole’ either because they don’t have quality friends or maybe they never listen to good counsel.
‘A friend’s honest comments may hurt you, but an enemy’s kisses are over the top.’
Proverbs 27:6 FBV
‘Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy.‘
Proverbs 27:6 NLT
Take a glance at the calendar and do the math. Set your gaze at the clock. It ticks busily away in response to the continual passage of existence.
Your life was meant for a reason you must find, embrace, and pursue. Nothing else matters more than to aggressively pursue your purpose. While your time ticks, be sure to invest your best in it. Pour into it the very reason for which your birth was approved.
No more delays, no more detours. It’s time to respond to what really matters.
Dear emerging leader, you lose the opportunity to progress powerfully on your path to the top when you begin to feel entitled rather than focus on growing, and consolidating on your strengths and competencies.
Many potential leaders have been relegated to the sidewalks because they used their resources to build tents at ‘Rant Street’ where they daily whine, nag, and complain instead of strategize and reposition for takeover.
