When God is in control, we will discover that what we used to put our trust in doesn’t even compare to in Whom we now put our trust.  Think about it:  How can we ever fathom the things God has for us?  The fact is, we can’t; but we certainly can embrace them and live them out in our lives.

Great companies are effective because they’ve learned to carry a large eraser. Greatness isn’t the absence of mistakes; rather, it’s your ability to never allow them to consume you or rule you. See mistakes as an opportunity to grow, not as an event to beat yourself down. A mistake is not a moment of loss; it’s a gift to leverage and learn from.

I’ve heard it said, “Our self-esteem is highly influenced by how we think the most important person in our life thinks about us.” Consider those who have truly impacted and influenced your life. Now, imagine the power you have in your grasp to speak the same into those you lead. That’s the power of influence.

Broaden your horizons by fostering your imagination. Too often, we imprison ourselves by what we’ve known. Many organizations struggle with change because ‘it’s never been done that way.’ Here’s a thought:  Who said? Never lose your ability to dream. As Walt Disney once said, “Don’t just think outside the box – lose the box, and just dream.”

When you’re going to work, you are going to work.  When you’re going to play, you are going to play.  Make sure that there’s balance.  When you get home at night and you keep thinking about work, you’re not being the person you need to be for those who need you.

The power of the gospel is when the unsaved world sees in us what God truly desires for them.  Everybody wants to be fully known and fully accepted.  And we cannot give to them what we are unwilling to live out with each other.  This is why Jesus said, “Love one another.  In the same way I loved you…This is how everyone will recognize that you are My disciples…” (John 13:34-35).

A chicken and a pig were walking down the road together when they came to a sign that read, ‘Annual Fundraiser.  Ham and egg breakfast.’  The chicken turned to the pig and said, “Hey, that’s right up our alley.  Let’s go in and help out.”  “‘Sure,” said the pig.  “That’s easy for you to say.  You just contribute.  For me, it’s total commitment.”  That’s what Jesus wants – total commitment.

I read once, “The genius of an entrepreneur is their connection to humanity.”  People are the ingredient to everything.  If you fail with them, you fail.  Find ways to foster healthy relationships and continually pour into others.  Oh, and allow them to pour into you.
