How To Give More To Your Family

Your family deserves more

Leadership is a delicate balance. You have your work life. Then you have your home life. And everything in-between.

Too often these lives get out of balance. Sadly, our family life is the facet of our lives that suffers.

Your family deserves more. Give it to them

You put in the long hours at the office. You trudge through the week. And then, when you get home, all you want to do is kick back and relax.

But that’s not what your wife needs. It’s also not what your children need.

Your family needs you.

How To Give More To Your Family

Research shows a majority of people will rate their family as their top priority in life. Next to their faith.

However, you know that no matter how much you want to love your family, you’re not giving them all your all. You’re worn out and you’re giving them your sloppy seconds.

How To Deal With Success As A Leader

As we inch closer and closer to success, you may notice things begin to change. I’ve seen it happen with friends of mine.

They start to act differently. They make different, sometimes unwise, choices. They look at life differently.

Then there are those who stay true to who they are. They walk the talk. They are the real deal.

Both are dealing with their success. Just not in the same way.

Deal with success properly

The Wrong Way To Deal With Success

My heart breaks when I think of people who are considered successful yet their lives are falling down around them.

Marriages are destroyed. Families are torn apart. Businesses that appear stable crumble and fall.

Lately, I’ve watched as successful people have cheated on their wives and failed to heed the advice of others. I’ve seen others spend their money until they’re broke.

Finding Faith, Family, And Leadership On The Road With Mike Boyink – The Answers From Leadership Podcast Episode 18

Let me introduce you to today’s guest on the Answers From Leadership podcast. His name is Mike Boyink (his last name is pronounced like the sound effect).

Mike is a husband, father, and a techie. And some people say a little nutso. He built a comfortable suburban self-employed lifestyle to provide for his family only to sell off the house, give away most of their stuff, and hit the road full-time.

While you might not consider this to be the ideal of a standard leader, I’ve come to find out that leaders need to be leaders of their family as well. Mike’s been doing that consistently while traveling the United States with his family.

5 Convictions Every Leader Should Have

Those who lead need to be people of conviction. Leaders need to hold fast and true to what they believe true.

When they don’t, organizations begin to sway and falter. We see uncertainty and unclear vision when a conviction is not there.

This begs the question: What convictions should leaders hold onto? What can a leader believe that will drive their organization forward?

I believe there are 5 convictions every leader must believe and hold tightly to.

1. There are better days ahead: It’s easy to get discouraged when leading. Your organization might not be moving ahead as quickly as you would like. Your team may not be following your instruction. Your company may even be facing financial difficulty.

Those days suck. But there are better days ahead.

Remember the glory days? The days that looked so promising and held so much excitement?
