THE PRETEXT OF LEADERSHIP
I’ve been asked for commentary on leadership. To become an effective leader, you must deeply understand the fears and dreams of the individuals whom you seek to motivate. Leaders ARE leaders because they have influence. But “influence” is never a “top->down” dynamic.
People ALLOW other people to lead them because they have the trust and confidence of their “troops.” So how do you develop that?
By honestly CARING about those on your team. At its best, leadership is rooted in love. And that is then expressed through service to those in your care. Where people get confused is with that silly game of “titles.” But that nominal formality has absolutely nothing to do with leadership. This is why “lead from behind” is such a powerful concept.
Leadership is a distant cousin of salesmanship - in that it’s foundation is the “know, like and trust” thing. People will only follow people they know, like and trust. And a leader fosters this by evidencing a depth of knowledge about those being led.
Step back and assess your friends. Family. Business associates. The way to establish yourself as WORTHY of leadership is to deeply understand the motivations, aspirations, fears and desires of EACH individual in your group. I understand this becomes impossible with large groups, like a corporation or an army. But even large groups look for examples of a leader caring and understanding any individual within their group. Connection. Commitment to the individuals inside the group. THIS is what makes people climb out of the trenches and charge the hill. It has nothing to do with hierarchy of command. The big secret that nobody tells you is that leaders are affirmed (or not) by their followers....NOT the other way around.
So knowing this....how well do you REALLY know those whom you would seek to lead?
You know you’re in the right place when you are surrounded by giants in their own right. People who are willing to #serve and #lift up others cannot be stopped from elevating as well. As you let your own light shine you unconsciously give other people permission to do the same Safeeya Mohammed.

Happy Birthday to one of my bests, @daniuswilliams! I wish everyone could have a friend like D. What a rare gem & the most selfless person I know. She is courageous; the kind of person who can make the tough decisions, even if it means putting her own dreams aside. She is loving; the kind of person who seeks to fully know you and accept you, flaws and all. She is inspiring; the kind of person who can speak life into you, igniting your passion and encouraging you to keep fighting the good fight.
God knew I needed you this year D. The hardest year of my life. He knows that I am the kind of person who isolates myself when life gets messy, making it seem like I’m doing just fine when in reality I’m struggling. He knew that and brought you into my life at exactly the right time. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re like some under cover angel or something, lol. Thank you for helping me experience the love, joy & freedom that real friendship & real community can bring. Love ya lots & hope you have an amazing day!!

طبعا اولا تتعدد المناسبات و تختلف ، لكل مناسبة هدية ، فهدية عيد الزواج تختلف عن هدية الى زميلة مثلا .
كيف نجعل المناسبات سعيدة لنا و لمن نقدم لهم الهدايا وكيف نبحث عن الهدية بإسلوب سلس. *يمكننا ان نعتمد على هواية الشخص ، فالهوايات كثيرة و تختلف و هذا الامر سيساعدك و يسهل امر اختيار الهدية ، و هناك ايضا الهدية حسب الحاجة ، لا مانع من القيام بالسؤال في بعض الاحيان عما يحتاجه الشخص الذي ترغب بإهدائه ، و قد يكون من المفيد والافضل و تجنبا للاحراج ان تسأل اشخاصا حوله للتعرف عن احتياحاته ، فقيمة الهدية ستكون اكبر و اثمن بالنسبة له ان حائت في الوقت الضرورة .*
STRUGGLING!!! Somedays it’s so easy sending her to her dads. I get a break, I do what I have to do child free, I go diving, it’s amazing. But other days my heart aches for her and it’s just so hard waiting.. I can’t wait for tomorrow but it’s my weekend with her. I get her for 4 days In a row! This only happens every fortnight and it’s just not enough.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder though right? At least I know the time we do get together is very valuable and it allows our relationship to be so much better.
Meet @lukewilliamhawkins another one of my mentors. Four years ago Luke lived in his Van at Bondi reading self development books with a flash light. He took showers at Bondi Beach and ate vegetables to survive while building his coaching business he was BROKE....... Four years later he has the biggest NLP coaching company in Australia now doing 3-4 million a year.
Do you know how much courage and strength it takes to grind your way out of a scarcity mindset and low confidence when you have no money starting a business. You have to have so much drive. This is why I will back anyone who creates success and is using it to serve humanity. 😇
So grateful to be surrounded by other inspirational humans wanting to make a positive difference in the world. The tools Luke has taught me will make me millions in the future and allow me to impact at the highest level and change a lot of lives. 🙏
Thanks for giving me a gift that is worth a million times more then what I paid. You deserve all the success in the world. Your the MAN 👑
Thanks for the inspiration 🙌

Subject GOA :
“Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.” Isaiah 58:10 .
Poverty around the world seems to get worse and worse. However, we choose to let our light shine as we continue to STOP for the one and tell them about THE ONE who loved the world so much that He gave everything so we could have the only thing we truly need...HIM!
One of the quickest ways to win in life is by helping those around you win. When you strive to add value to others in this way, your own value begins to increase. So I encourage you to ask yourself the question ...who can I help serve today to get them closer to their success and thereby closer to my own? #winbyliftingothers#comethrough#equals#breakthrough#serveyourwaytosuccess
Alt for mange, spesielt unge sliter med dårlig selvbilde i dagens samfunn. Nyopererte bloggere står fram og sier at de er blitt lykkeligere etter at de fikk ny nese, ny rompe, nye bryst osv osv.
Alt dette er falskt, løgnaktig og heslig. Dette er intet annet en tomhet, tomhet og atter tomhet, og er en ballong som alltid sprekker. Om kort tid får samtlige av disse plager og problemer av et eller annet slag, fysisk og mentalt.
Et fokus som kun dreier seg og seg selv, og vårt eget speilbilde ender alltid i grøfta. Egoismen er livsfarlig, og den er vår største fiende.
Ingen, absolutt ingen kan leve et lykkelig liv, hvis man kun tenker på seg selv, og forsøker å få alt til å dreie seg om seg selv, og få alt til å gå i egen fordel.
Det mest perfekte menneske som noensinne har tråkket rundt på jorden, Nasareeren Jesus, sa det på en glimrende måte: “Jeg kom ikke for å bli tjent, men for selv å tjene“
Mesteren lærte oss at egoisme fører til undergang!
La deg ikke lede inn i fristelsen, og tro at det bloggere og såkalte influencere fronter er veien til lykke, det er intet annet enn tomhet!
Benytt alle muligheter du får, til først og fremst tjene andre. Det er veien til lykke, og et godt liv!
So a lot of 'How to be a Coach' programs, trainings, manuals, books etc out there will say to never get too emotionally attached or close to your "client"... So technically (by the coaches textbook) I'm doing everything wrong... I can't help myself to feel, to deeply connect, to deeply care.... So maybe I'm doing everything wrong or maybe, I just need to write a different type of "How to be a Coach" book or training 🤷🏻♂️ I know I'd much prefer to connect then be correct.. 🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼

Tonight I got to witness along with these individuals, @selahfreedom first Midwest graduate from our residential program.
Pretty powerful stuff full of empowerment.
My favorite part of this graduate/survivors story: When she explained her bravery, standing up in court in front of her trafficker and sharing her story. How it brought the whole court to tears and even her trafficker applauded her testimony.
Then got 30 years
She’s a powerhouse! I’m excited to watch her move forward into her future and for others to follow her lead.
Open hands give, but they are also able to receive. To be Christ-like is to be servant hearted, to give, even when you know you may get nothing in return. I have found that when we give, we also receive. Whether you give of your time or other resources, you get back in love, in joy and in gratitude. It is always blessed to give ❤ #giving#give#serve#love#openhands#openheart
