Kindness Is Strength Under Fire

Kindness Is Strength Under Fire

Kindness Shows True Strength…

So many people equate kindness with weakness.

In truth, being kind is a statement of unique strength.

Angry people are consumed with hate.

They hate their circumstances.

They hate people who do not agree with them.

They hate their jobs, their relationships, their health, virtually everything that validates their inner-anger.

Sylvester Stallone said it best, “There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.”

The True Power of Synergy

The True Power of Synergy

According to the dictionary, synergy has a simple definition:

“A synergy is where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, when two or more people or organizations combine their efforts, they can accomplish more together than they can separately. They can get more done working together than they can working apart.”

Personally, when I think of synergy I think of strength.

Consider a wall of bricks stacked on top of one another 10 feet high with no mortar. 

Push on the center and it will cave in.

How to Turn Your Natural Creativity into Something Wonderful…

How to Turn Your Natural Creativity into Something Wonderful…

Without question, your natural creativity is your MOST important asset and is responsible for everything good in your life.

The simple fact is, everyone, is NATURALLY CREATIVE… but most people (over 90%) are not using their most basic gifts and talents…

So they unwittingly work AGAINST themselves rather than put their innate creativity to work FOR them.

People have the wrong impression on what it means to be creative.

People think it is others who are naturally creative and don’t realize they too have an inner-creative genius driving their imagination.

Change Management is a Myth…

The concept of Change Management has been around for years.

Countless books have been written on the subject and an entire industry of management consultants have prospered under the prospect of advising businesses on how to manage change.

The story is always the same…

The only constant is change…

In a changing world, it comes down to the quick and the dead…

A Passion For Service…

Passion in Business is a Big Deal…
Maybe the biggest deal of all.

If you are not good at what you do, you will not succeed.

Equally, if you are good but not truly passionate, you will not succeed.

It is one of those universal laws of business.

If your business does not have a splendid sense of passion, purpose, and mission — the kind of passion that makes you want to get up early and stay up late — you will certainly have problems!

When you have an unstoppable sense of MISSION and PURPOSE, all the other things you must do to run a highly successful business makes sense.
