They say SMALL MINDS talk about other People, Average Minds talk about Events and GREAT MINDS talk about IDEAS.

Some of the greatest conversations I have ever had have been about Events and Ideas. The worst conversations I have had the misfortune of being a part of is those when individuals have to talk about others. It leaves me wondering if they can talk about others to me then they must be talking to others about me. I know, I know, those small minds do not know any better.

Sadly, those that exceed at talking about others do so not because of their level of education. I know several very smart, very bright, and highly educated individuals that, at a drop of a hat, dive into the cesspool of talking about others. Even sadder, are those that talking about others it is all they have ever known.

Leaving the temptation of talking about others behind immediately puts you on the trajectory of reaching the high levels of conversations. Delivering on the kinds of conversations that leave people seeking you out in that you not only talk not about others. The conversations you bring to the human interaction are the stuff that people want because it stimulates and intrigues them. It makes others wanting more.

Bring the opposite and others will do all they can to avoid you. As you should do all you can to avoid being in situations where the topic of conversation is others.

Remember, the longer you stick around and listen you rest assured to be mentioned in the next conversation (without you).

We are all human beings. Yet, we are all very different. But we all have three sides to who we are.

The Public facing side: The side we pridefully show the world. This public facing side is usually facing one way because, heaven forbid others see the rest of who we are. If and when they find out who we are, usually the Public will care as long as it takes for something else to come along and distract them.

The Personal facing side: This is the side we show those close to us. This personal side is usually what we show those we love or keep close. We do so without fear of it being used against us. Yet, there are those occasions where we are either mislead or others collect what we share only to use it as fodder when they

The third side of who we are is our PRIVATE facing side: This is the side what is within us. This side is who we are in our truest form. This private facing side is never revealed, sometimes not even to ourselves. This is called the PRIVATE side for a reason. We all have it. We all live with it. Here in the PRIVATE side resides all our deepest hopes, dreams, fantasies, resentments, and plots of revenge. For most people, that is where they stay.

Many live with all three sides out of balance and broken. They fear truths being revealed. They live in fear and are never happy.
Individuals that do not fear being revealed live in balance. A balance that they have nothing to lose by letting in those that mean no harm. A balance by immediately dealing with those that mean them harm.

The balanced life comes from BEING TRUE TO YOURSELF, FIRST!

Leaders and The New Winds of Change

CHANGE is the word of the day. For many out there believe if they hold their breath long enough this latest “wind of change” will blow over. Well, not this time. Folks, especially those that feel their OLD WAYS (a.k.a. the old we’ve always done it this way and the old if it ain’t broke don’t fix it) are threaten to cease existing.

Guess what? You and those like you have had your heads so far up your four points of contact that when you pop it out I will happily be the one to tell you: IT IS ALL BROKEN and there is no going back.

The “winds of change” are blowing all over the planet and no pandemic, no closed-mindedness. nor preconceived ideas & outdated ideologies will stand in its way.

As a leader you must have that open mind and believe that the coming change is the natural progression of our existence as human beings. For a few short weeks not so long ago, we stood together in defense of microscopic virus that has the potential to wipe every human off the face of the Earth.

Think “War of the Worlds” kind of scenario in this case we, Earthlings, are the invading Martians. It was the simple microbe that almost wipes the invaders out. But, we do not have the luxury of jumping into a rocket ship and going home. We are home. Now in the midst of all this we stand apart.

Now, as we start to see signs of beating back the pandemic some imbecile with complete disregard for human life, dignity, and humanity goes off and kills someone. Someone that imbecile sworn an oath to protect and serve. That someone was George Floyd. We all know that when George Floyd woke up that morning quite possibly the last thing on his mind was that “today, will be the day that he would change the world“. Yet, he is gone and the world is changing.

As LEADERS, you have a duty to ALL those you to lead to lead by example. Be the first to embrace the coming change. Do not embrace change because it is the right thing to (because it is) and not because it is the cool thing to do (because it is) but because as times change a real leader must accept change. Even if sometimes that change is not to their liking and the cold hard fact is: CHANGE DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN WHAT ANYONE THINKS!

So, if you want to continue being a LEADER, then get up, get out there and LEAD THE CHANGE FROM THE FRONT!

Yes, it is that simple!

Thank you for your time,
