Here’s the third installment. I’ve now moved to doing 2 pages from my moleskine instead of 1, so as not to overwhelm my subscribers.
The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority. ~ Ken Blanchard
Let us count that it is evermore our highest honor and our greatest glory, to lay aside all honor and all glory, and to win honor and glory out of shame and humiliation for Christ Jesus’ sake. ~ C. H. Spurgeon
Its about the story that surrounds who you are – a story that creates focus for your ministry. In short, it’s about your ‘brand.’ ~ Phil Cooke
Today, cell phone companies, fashion designers, food producers, television networks and more, focus specifically on children in order to make them brand conscious for life. We call them ‘early adopters.’ ~ Phil Cooke
It’s difficult to connection with people while pursuing your selfish agenda. By nature, connecting is a giving experience. ~ John Maxwell
The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. ~ Gandhi
When you connect with individuals, soon you will gain the attention of crowds. ~ John Maxwell
The telltale sign of a leader is not what he has been able to accomplish on his own, but what he has been able to accomplish through others. That comes only as a result of connection. ~ John Maxwell
The main ingredient of stardom is the rest of the team. ~ John Wooden
Connection starts with the heart:
- Instead of lecturing, listen.
- Instead of projecting image, project integrity.
- Instead of demanding control, demonstrate compassion.
- Instead of glaring at others, gaze through their eyes.
The leader who does not seek the kingdom of God first does not see it at all. ~ Lead Like Jesus
After all is said and done, more will have been said than done. ~ Marshall McLuhan
Failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night. ~ Zig Ziglar
Character gets you out of bed: commitment moves you to action. Faith, hope, and discipline enable you to follow through to completion. ~ Zig Ziglar
Positive thinking won’t let you do anything, but it will let you do everything better than negative thinking will. ~ Zig Ziglar
The difference between mediocrity and excellence is midnight oil, elbow grease, and the power of God. ~ Shelton Smith
Leaders aren’t made overnight. They aren’t made in a microwave. They are simmered in crock-pots. ~ John Maxwell
No man can bear witness to Christ and to himself at the same time. No man can give the impression thathe himself is clever, and that Christ is mighty to save. ~ James Denney
