Disappointment and Discouragement – Two indulgences too costly to afford

Keep your head up!


Video duration is 4 minutes and 38 seconds.


There are two indulgences that are too costly for any leader to afford. By indulgence I simply mean, something that would be easy to give into in the moment; something offering short-term reward that would hurt us in the long run.

The two indulgences I want to talk about are discouragement and disappointment. It’s tempting at times to fall into each of them. Let’s think for a moment what each of these two words means. First let’s look at the prefix of each word. “Dis” is to negate something; to undo its power.

So let’s look at the word “discourage.” What are we doing when we give into discouragement? We are allowing our courage to be taken away. We are allowing a circumstance or person to rob us of our courage. Though it’s tempting to blame the circumstance or person, each of us is responsible for choosing what we yield to or stand up to in life.

Now let’s look at the indulgence of disappointment. Something is appointed for us…the next level of growth, a new relationship or opportunity…something we are meant to connect with that is missed. Appointments get broken when we yield to disappointment.

Discouragement drains us of courage. Our hearts become afraid. Our minds begin to rehearse all the “What If’s.” We change our course of action and miss an appointment.

Think about the words, “discouragement” and “disappointment.” They may be tempting in the moment. We’ve all probably battled with each of them, but the cost of each of them is just too high. They can throw us into a downward spiral from which it’s difficult to recover. Each of us is responsible to watch over our hearts and minds.

I want to encourage and strengthen you today to meet your next appointment. Keep your head up! Drive away discouragement and disappointment. Let today be a day of growth, regardless of your circumstances. Good things await you!

Make a difference

Choose today to make a difference in the greatest way possible...


Video duration is 4 minutes and 50 seconds.


You can make a difference!

A lot of people will be watching this video on the day we call, “Cyber Monday.” I want to give today a new name. I’ll call it, “Make a Difference Monday.” I believe the way we make a difference is by viewing our lives from the end and working backwards. We should ask ourselves what kind of difference we want to make in the world.

You can do this by visualizing your own funeral. See the people standing around your casket or looking at your tombstone. What kind of impact would you have wanted to make in their lives?

Some people may think this kind of thinking is morbid, but I think it’s strategic. Today, and in the days ahead, we’re going to take different steps in our lives. Many people will do this without any sense of direction or purpose. In order to plan our next few steps we should have some idea where we want to end up in life…we should move toward what we believe our life’s purpose is. I believe that, in a general sense, our purpose is to make a unique difference.

The only things that will make a difference after you and I are gone are those contributions of influence and impact that we made. We cannot take our cars, our houses or our money with us. We can however leave influence and impact that adds value to others and makes them better people.

What kind of difference do you want to make? If your life was a book, what would the title be? What would some of the chapters be titled? Everyone has a life message. Have you identified yours?

Think about what you are passing on to others in your encounters with them. When you look at your daily influence is it crude, rude and selfish or you influencing others in a way that is adding value to their lives?

You are not wired to be average. Nobody is. As human beings, we are designed to be fruitful, to multiply and to take dominion over the challenges we faced each day. You were designed to be extraordinary.

I want to create a movement towards this thing that I called fearless leadership and I can’t do it by myself. I need help and that’s why I’m asking you to become part of this movement. So…how do we start a movement like this?

1. Well, first we have to help people know who they are. We have to help them become clear in their identities.
2. We have to help people think and believe through a lens of possibility rather than through a lens of shortage. Some people only think about what won’t work…What would happen if all the “what if’s” came true. We need to help people have a larger capacity for possibility.
3. Then we can help people prioritize their lives to live from a perspective of contribution. Life is a process of sowing and reaping…something I call fearless leadership.

I don’t think fearless leadership happens accidentally. It’s been a process that I’ve been in for about thirty years now. I’ve made notes and created breadcrumbs for others to follow. I hope you’ll join me.

For a movement of fearless leadership to happen we obviously need to DO something. But ultimately, it’s something that we must first, “BE.” It begins on the inside and eventually works its way outwardly. It’s the opposite of something I call, fear-based leadership” which is what drives so many things in the world. People abusing and using others to create a name and an identity. I believe there is a much better way.

I truly need your help to make this message viral. Please leave comments below. I’d also appreciate it if you’d “like” my Facebook Fanpage and share this post.

Blessings,

Coach Randy

Let’s create a fearless leadership movement

It will take leaders of character and competence to begin a fearless leadership movement...


Video duration is 6 minutes and 15 seconds.


Let’s create a fearless leadership movement!

This is my appeal to you to help start a worldwide movement of fearless leadership. I believe in order to solve the world’s complex problems we need to fill a vacuum that currently exist within leadership. This is needed on every single level society, in every single location of the world, in every single level of influence.

When I speak of a leadership movement, I’m not just talking about leaders of a large corporations, leaders of non-profit organizations or leaders of nations. Obviously I’d like to reach all those people. What I’m talking about however is reaching people on every level of influence.

I don’t know what your level of influence is. It may be in your work place, bowling league, card club or as you participate in golf outings. Every person has influence and what I like to do is harness that power so we are all leading others in a positive direction, encouraging them to be fearless leaders as well. 

This is something that I call, “atomic impact.” Admittedly my knowledge of atomic physics is over simplistic. What I understand is that it involves the  splitting of an atom which we call fission. I believe in order to become a fearless leader we need to go through a process of splitting or being divided. We need to lose our false identity. We need to lose our scarcity thinking. We need to become a master over that selfish part of us that wants people to serve us…

As people become fearless in their leadership (not driven by selfish ambition, wounds or fears) they can be “fused” in a way that releases “atomic” power, creating incredible synergy.

This reminds me of a man named Johann Gutenberg. He was a simple German man living in the fifteenth century. At that time Bibles were chained to church walls and written in a language that common people could not understand. Only the elite in society and higher educated priesthood of the church could actually read the Bible. This created a class system.

Gutenberg desired to get the Bible into the hands of average normal everyday people and it’s exactly what he did by creating an invention called the movable type printing press. I don’t know if he knew the impact he was going to have, but this invention absolutely changed the world. 

I would like to be part of the same kind of revolution. I want to see leadership, which most people think is an elite thing, become the mindset of otherwise common people. I want to see a movement of people who are exerting positive influence in everything they’re part of…Over the conversations that they have with their neighbors. I want to see people lead in the checkout line at Walmart, helping someone to have a better day. I want to see people lead in their meetings with others in the clubs and on the committees that they are part of. I’d like to see people lead with the employee that they work with everyday. I want you to be the best leader within your sphere of influence that you can be.

Will you help me create this movement? You and I can work together to make this happen:

  1. First we can take this message of a fearless leadership and make it viral. We can do that by sharing my videos, but also by finding your own voice. Pick up a pen and paper, audio or video recorder and begin to share your own voice with the world. If you don’t know how, I want to help you. This truly is the fullness of times with our modern technology. With the internet, Youtube and abundance of free software that’s available, every person can have a voice.
  2. We need to each become fearless leaders in our own right.
  3. We need to use our personal influence to raise up as many other fearless leaders as possible.

If we all work together we can change the world. Let’s create a fearless leadership movement!
