Everyone talks about wanting to be great. They claim they want to make a difference in the world.
But is that the truth? Do people really want to be great?
I don’t believe they do. Greatness comes at a cost. A cost many people aren’t willing to pay.
Greatness will cost you:
Many times people don’t reach the level of greatness within them because they’re unwilling to pay the cost to be great. They want to do the least amount of work for the greatest amount of return.
This doesn’t work in real life. To make progress, to become better, you have to pay the price. Read more...
This past weekend was a busy one (and I’m not just saying that!) The annual Unity Christian Music Festival was Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I ran a half-marathon distance. And there was the True Believers Fest by Marquis Comics where comic fans, wrestlers, and more came together. While it was a great weekend, it put a damper on my movie watching and I was unable to get out to the theater.
The sad part is, there are some great movies in the theater that haven’t received the Reel Leadership treatment. Movies like Mission Impossible: Fallout, Christopher Robin, and The Meg.
So, I browsed Netflix and found a film that had peaked my curiosity before. It looked silly and fun. That movie? Antboy.
Antboy tells the story of a 12-year old boy Pelle Nøhrmann (Oscar Dietz). He was bitten by a super-ant and given superpowers, much like Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider and became Spider-Man. Read more...
We all want to experience positive growth in life both as leaders and as individuals. It has always been the greatest desire of every human. Though some attain greatness while others don’t. Why? Stay with me. I will give you the answer below as I try to list out few of the peak performance strategies I’ve discovered.

Prior to putting this together, I’ve done some research and I’ve asked a few questions too. Acceleration in life doesn’t just happen. It is greatly influenced by the group of people, friends, and colleagues you associate with. The type of information and probably orientation you have. These enhance your ability and capability to reach your goals early in life. Read more...
Life could be so much easier… If only people came with warning labels.
You may be thinking “Yes! That’d be awesome. I could easily see the toxic people in my life.” or “I could recognize the people who will cause me trouble.”

But those aren’t the warning labels I’m talking about. I wish people came with warning labels like:
If Only People Came With Warning Labels
I need help.
This warning label would let me know this person is struggling with a problem and needs help. He’s open to receiving help and won’t get mad if I step up to offer a few wise words like Yoda.
This would also let me know they’re looking for help and may strike out because of the pain their problem is causing them. Their warning label crying out for help allows me to brace myself for any attack I may face when I’m interacting with them. Read more...
When I first saw the trailer for Skyscraper with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, I was hooked. The trailer for Skyscraper looked like a cross between my favorite Christmas movie Die Hard and Liam Neeson’s Taken. With those two movies combined, it had to be good.
Skyscraper tells the story of Will Sawyer. Will is a former FBI agent with a prosthetic leg after a botched hostage negotiation. He goes on to build a security consulting agency and is tasked with assessing the security and safety of the world’s largest skyscraper, The Pearl, in Hong Kong.
Things begin to go bad and the skyscraper goes up in flames. While this would be issue enough, Will soon discovers his wife Sarah Sawyer (Neve Campbell) and their twin children, Georgia Sawyer (McKenna Roberts) and Henry Sawyer (Noah Cottrell). Will knows he must go to extreme lengths to save the ones he loves. Read more...
