Confidence That You Care & Can Help

“The day the soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.”

Provision for Each Wilderness

“… GOD has never made a wilderness for which HE did not equally provide a provision. HE doesn’t make the wilderness and then scratch HIS head and say, “How am I going to provide for this?”. With the temptation GOD also makes a way of escape. With the wilderness GOD also makes a way of provision, and they come like twins. So, whatever kind of wilderness, financial, emotional, marital, it doesn’t matter what it is, there is a provision in your wilderness.”

The Hard Curves of Life & Business

“For many people, the hard curves of life and business often seem like unwelcomed obstacles that stand in the path to their success. They can be seen as the deal-breakers, the brick walls that prevent growth and extinguish opportunity. I aim to look at them in a different light. We should learn to celebrate the hard curves, recognizing them for what they are—challenges that can make us better, more innovative, and stronger. This is the place where we can win the race.”
