Put Your Dreams to the Test


We just finished our leadership seminar last month and are looking at another date in January. This seminar is called “How to put your DREAM TO THE TEST.”

Leadership is a large part of the answer to the problems we are facing in the world today. How leaders lead, and what leaders know is very important. It is on thing to be able to lead but it is altogether more important to lead in the right direction with the right motives and knowledge, you really can make a difference in your sphere of influence.

This seminar, “HOW TO PUT YOUR DREAM TO THE TEST.” Will answer the questions you have about, is my dream really possible and is it really MY DREAM or is it something someone else has put on me that is not really my own,

this seminar will help you define your dream and the chance that it can come to fruition in your life. Start planning for this seminar, we are looking at a date of JANUARY 17, 2015. Would love to see you at this great seminar.

How Important is Trust!!!


How important is TRUST for a leader? It is the Solid Ground on which Leadership is built. Without the TRUST of your followers, they will not follow you. And if no one is following you, you are just out for a walk.
People do not always have to agree with you but they must trust that what you are telling them, you really do believe and that you live what you teach. Is it a reality in your own personal life, if not TRUST is broken and you have no followers. And if you have no followers you have no influence and if you have no influence with people you will never accomplish your dreams and goals.

Above all make sure you live your life so that those who God sends into your life to influence can TRUST you.

How to LEAD!!!


When we talk about leadership and we want to know how to lead. It is very important to realize that we must be able to “bring something to the table” If we are going to lead people we need to be able to offer them something they now possess. that means we need to be able to help them become better in some area of there lives.

Not only must we encourage them but also give them some tools that will help them move ahead in their lives. How can we make them better people. If the people are not growing and moving forward in their lives, they have just wasted their time and energy.
So it is very important for us to grow ourselves so they we will be able to grow others. I ask parents all the time, ‘how are you leading your children?’ They will not do what you say, they will only do what you do. It is the same with the people you are trying to lead, they will become what you are not what you want.
Keep growing and moving ahead in your life and Leadership.

We all have influence, the big question is what kind of influence do YOU have?


Have you ever thought of yourself as an influencer or someone who has been given influence over other people? Whether you realize it or not you are an INFLUENCER!!

If you are a housewife you have influence over your children, if you are a husband you have influence over your wife and your children. If you are a married woman you have a great deal of influence over your husband. you have all heard the saying, “behind every successful man is a great woman helping.” This statement is so true, we all help others reach higher levels of achievement than we can ever do on our own.
An influencer ENLARGES people. The best way to enlarge people is to take steps to enlarge YOURSELF. As you enlarge yourself you will not be able to stop enlarging others around you. As you grow everything around you grows. As your influence grows the influence of others will grow around you. EVERYTHING GETS BETTER.
Make sure your influence is POSITIVE and not NEGATIVE. We all have influence the big question is what kind of influence do I have? YOU MAKE THE CHOICE.

Integrity and High Purpose


Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “In order to be a leader a man must have followers, And to have followers, a man must have their confidence. Hence the supreme quality for a leader is unquestionably  integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a sections gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. If a man’s associates find him guilty of phoniness, if they find that he lacks forthright integrity, he will fail. His teachings and actions must square up with each other. The first great need, therefore is INTEGRITY AND HIGH PURPOSE.”

One of the reasons our America is in such trouble is our leaders have no sense of purpose or the INTEGRITY to follow through with the vision and purpose that they do have.
INTEGRITY AND TRUST is the glue that holds people and companies, countries together. without these two traits nothing permanent can be accomplished. When asked what the most important trait is required for leadership the number one answer is INTEGRITY. that is the most important need in our culture today.
Blessings to all of you

Developing a TO DO LIST!



Developing a “TO DO LIST” to develop yourself and others.

#1 principle when developing people is you may ask, where do I start. The answer is very simple. Start with YOURSELF, that is always the first place to begin.

#2 Create a GROWTH culture or start a culture where you can thrive and be at peace with yourself and all involved.

#3 Recognize potential in other people. There are some diamonds in them.

#4 Attract potential. If you can recognize potential can you attract it to you.

#5 Develop potential. If you can recognize, attract potential then you must be able to develop that potential.

#6 After all this has been achieved, you must find ways to EMPOWER and give away that potential.

Something that is very important is that people will grow into the conversations you have when you are around them. Be positive and encouraging to EVERYONE.

A time for good leadership is NOW!!!!!!



There has been a lot of talk about the Nation of Israel and all that is going on in the Middle East. If there was a time when our world needed good leadership, it is now. Nobody seems to know what to do or how to handle each other.

This conflict started many many years ago with the birth of two boys who have never been able to get along and it has escalated to the war that has been going on for centuries.
These problems in the Middle East will not be solved by political games or by military might. One day the greatest leader of all time, Jesus Christ is coming back to set up a Kingdom reign that will last for 1000 years. At this time the war will be over and we will all find out what it is like to live in a society that is led by a real genuine leader who care more about people than He does about his own agenda.
That will be a great time and I look forward to the time when this happens. It will take a LEADER





There is an old adage that says, “All is well that ends well” I really believe there is more to this saying than meets the eye. First of all I believe that “All is well that begins well.” It is just as important how you start something because how you start will determine how well you end up. 

I have seen many projects started that were not started with the right preparation or with the proper capital. Most of those projects fail or at best struggle for the duration of the project. 

Not only is it important how you start but it is also important how maintain while the project is in force. You must start well and maintain well and then “All is well when it ends well.”

We have a lot of input on how we start, how we maintain and how we end. Make sure we go through all the steps and then the end will be all that you expected it to be. 


What Kind of Influence are YOU????


chart course


How to WIN FRIENDS and INFLUENCE PEOPLE? What kind of influence do you have in your surroundings? Everyone has influence, but the million dollar question is WHAT KIND OF INFLUENCE DO YOU HAVE? If you are a husband, how are you influencing your wife, if you are a wife how are you influencing your husband and your children. Many times because we just want to have a fun time, we do things that take those we love down a path we really don’t want to go.

If you as a husband take your wife out to parties where there is drinking and partying and months later she or you become addicted to alcohol, you were responsible for leading her and yourself in the wrong direction. Here’s the kicker, we then start to blame
everyone else for all our problems when it was us who made the decision to go down that road. We need to stop blaming others for the road we go down when we are the one’s who chart our own course.

Set the right course and you will get the right results.





I was just thinking about leadership and what I wanted to accomplish in my own leadership and influence in the church.

I was reading an actable in the Charisma magazine  and there was an article about Pastor Jack Hayford. Pastor Jack is celebrating his 80 birthday and is still going strong. He spent many years as the head of “four Square Denomination” as well as pastoring for many years. He then started “Kings University” which at the present time has over 8 campus locations in the U.S.
Never a black mark against Pastor Jack, never  a black mark that would ruin his ministry or deplete his influence. I think this is what true leadership is all about. It’s not about all that we can do for the Lord, but what we are willing to allow the Lord to do through us. And Pastor Jack Hayford has been a true example of what The Lord wants to do in and through all of us. KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL AND KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON THE LORD.
