Pam and I go to the movie theater often. In the last couple of years, I can’t recall the movie theater being as packed as it recently has. I believe there’s one movie that has caused families to flock back to the theater. That movie?
You may remember the original Frozen movie from 2013. Frozen released to great fanfare. And for good reason. The original Frozen movie was fantastic. From memorable songs such as Let It Go to amazing animation. The original Frozen was a winner.

Gerard Butler has become a favorite actor of mine. Ever since I saw him in the great movie Machine Gun Preacher, I try to keep an eye out for new movies from him. I’ve missed a few, like the previous movies in the Has Fallen series. These movies include Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. I’m glad I didn’t miss Angel Has Fallen.

These life circumstances make your next decision difficult. How do you continue forward after such a blow?
Life Isn’t Rosy
You’ve been hit by a bad life circumstance. Maybe you’ve experienced one of the ones I’ve already mentioned. Maybe you’ve encountered a life circumstance worse than one of those.
Whatever situation you’re currently in, it might not be so rosy. You may feel like God has abandoned you. Or your friends and family have turned their back on you. Read more...
Any leader who has been around for a while will know he doesn’t have all the answers. Far from it. This is why great leaders surround themselves with people who have expertise in areas they lack.
But what happens to a leader as he rises through the ranks? He may lose touch with the notion he needs to continually learn. Or he may believe there’s no one else he can learn from.

This would be an unfortunate thought. There are plenty of ways to continue to grow yourself and your leadership ability. One of those is through asking great questions.
The Answer Is Through The Question
Do you remember when you were a child? You went around and asked everyone you met various questions. You may have asked: Read more...
