Reading a lot about money lately and trying to unlock the tight grip I seem to have on it at times. Reading through the bible, I received some wisdom. Such as, it easier for a camel to get through an eye of an needle than it is for a rich man to follow God. And of course, it is more blessed to give than to receive. Money is a tough challenge for me with my changing income, but God has always provided.

Against the Grain

If you want to be successful, you have to avoid following the crowd and do things the crowd what not think of doing. Another way to look at it is to become successful at the things others do not like doing. I have built a successful business on helping my clients prospect. It is the most important and most neglected part of the sales process.

Letting Go

One of the most difficult things about being a parent is letting your kids make mistakes. I often can see the mistakes my kids are making in advance and it kills me not to stop them. This is especially true when it comes to money management. I know I must step away, but it does not make the process any easier. However, I will be there for them when they need to come home. Just like the Prodigal son.  Always forgiving and compassionate.

Becoming a Winner

My son is just starting his summer job selling pest control services. He needs to  reach small reachable goals early and build on that. Early success will breed confidence. In addition, seeing yourself making a sale in your mind is important. Your mind does not know the difference and this will translate into significant outcomes. I hope he reads this piece of advice.

Risk to Leadership

I heard a great quote which plays into my beliefs- “If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission.” I would also add that we need to Dare to Differ with the status quo in order to make a difference in the world!

Adversity and Opportunity

This pandemic has provided a lot of drama and adversity. On the flip side, it has me searching for opportunities. Not to find a job, but to make a job. This has been my mantra most of my working life. It will be interesting to see where God takes me during this season of my life.

Living Today

As I confront the COVID virus and my wife’s cancer, I am reminded to live each day to its fullest. We are meant to breathe in today and only today. Although the times are challenging, I am growing spiritually. For this I am thankful. In addition, the ongoing support of family and friends has opened my eyes to a new love. One that I hope to emulate as my life continues on.

Social Distancing

I am not a big fan of the term social distancing. Sure we need to be six feet apart and not congregate in large groups. I call that physical distancing. In terms of being social, we need to be closer than ever to deepen community and get through this crisis. So I would call it physical distancing while becoming socially closer.
