Life is comprised of opportunities to create teachable moments if we are intentionally looking for them. This is extremely important if we are parents and/or leaders in other organizations. Now I will start off by admitting I am not impressed by Colin Kaepernick and I do not agree with his recent decision to disrespect our nation’s service men and women by sitting during out National Anthem before his NFL games. It is unfortunate. I am however also disappointed in how so many of my friends whom I agree with have decided to respond to his decision to protest social injustice in this manner.
Are you a concerned American? Do you believe November 2016 will be one of the most important elections of all time? Do you see America is at a critical decision point where if we do not elect the right president or pass the right laws it could set us down a path we may never recover from? Have you identified who the right candidate is? Do you know what the right sides are of the most important issues? Do you feel compelled to tell others what are the right ways to vote and why? When someone shares an opposing view to yours do you fulfill your obligation to correct that poor misled fool as to what is the right path or who is the right candidate?
If you answered yes to these questions may I offer you some helpful advice?
So I absolutely cannot take credit for this. A friend of mine shared this idea from Jon Acuff. I loved the idea and I accepted the challenge in 2014. It required commitment and discipline, but it was totally worth it. Are you up for the challenge?
There are so many dimensions to leadership and it is most certainly a process not a destination. I want to share with you a training I received from a mentor of mine, Greg Smith, in August 2013. He shared the five things leaders do at Advocare Success School in August 2013. His training challenged me and convicted me of some areas I needed to grow in. I am certain one or more of these insights will do the same for you.

Would you like to be more effective and productive in every important area of your life? I believe most everyone would like to. One of the most important things we can do before beginning a new project or task is to identify and fully understand our strengths. There is an incredible tool that can help us do exactly that. It is StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath.
Last night’s Men’s Leadership Call was powerful. This is the most significant contribution I have made for our culture and society to date. You and any man you know will be blessed if you listen to the replay. Please pass this along and share with other men you know WHY they need to listen to this.

We live in a world that constantly dulls us and beats us down. We receive so much resistance in so many areas. The way of this world is to be mediocre and average. As men we are called to be so much more and to do so much more. We were created by our Heavenly Father who loves us and has such great plans for us. One of the most important lessons I have learned is I must surround myself with other champion men who challenge me and sharpen me. We all raise or fall to the level of our friends we associate ourselves with.
