Better Days Ahead

Can I tell you the truth today? The last couple of weeks have been hard.

I had a new job opportunity fell through. My brother-in-law passed away. One of our cars was in a wreck.

Bad things seemed to keep piling on. One thing after the other.

Yet there was one thing I knew I could count on. Better days are ahead.

Better Days Ahead

We all go through seasons where our lives seem out of control. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Sometimes we don’t WANT to know what tomorrow will bring.

The days have been so bad. So hard. It seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

I want to encourage you today. There is hope. There are better days ahead.

Give Your Team Hope

There are going to be tough times in your organization. Sales might be down or you’ll lose key players.

Something will go wrong. That is a guarantee.

But even in these dark times, you need to do something. You need to give your team hope.

Your team needs hope. You can give them hope

The Power Of Hope

My favorite movie series has to be Star Wars. There’s an epic story that goes on.

One where we see a young, powerful boy transform into the biggest baddie the galaxy has ever seen. From there, we see hope rise with the Rebel Alliance forming to fight back against the evil Empire. And, we’re now at a point where the Jedis are gone and a new Jedi is rising.

The Star Wars movies all carried a similar theme: Hope. We must have hope.

There’s power in hope. And that’s why leaders must give their teams hope.

Getting Through The Leadership Blahs

My wife and I had the pleasure of being some of the leaders in the youth group at our former church. We had so many great times at the church.

We also had times where we didn’t want to leave our house on a Wednesday night and show up for the kids (Sorry former students who may be reading this. It’s the truth, but it doesn’t mean we don’t love you guys!).

Those nights we didn’t want to show up, we had the leadership blahs. You know what those are, right? You’ve probably had them.

What Are The Leadership Blahs?

There are many situations which could be called the leadership blahs. For me, it was the nights I didn’t want to get my stuff together and be there for the students. I wanted to be selfish and do my own thing.
