So who am I to be giving Motivational Tips?

So who am I to be giving Motivational Tips?

I am not famous. I am not rich. I am not born of royalty. I have not won any elected offices or been appointed to nay powerful posts. I am not a Chairmen or a CEO (Yet) of any major company. I am just some guy who has never stooped dreaming, and dreaming big I might add.

Depending on who you talk to you will hear I am a great guy, or I am a jerk. I am a loud mouthed know it all, or I am a guy who studies hard and asks lots of questions. Did I always study hard? “No!” I spent way too much time waiting for things to happen; when I found out you have to make things happen. The world does not wait for us. So I stopped waiting around; but I never stopped dreaming and dreaming big I might add.

So I started to read more books on Leadership, and read more about the Bible, and looked at myself, and stopped waiting around. I got more involved with volunteering and finished my degree, and went to church more. All those things being said, I still made plenty of mistakes. I screwed up every relationship I was in, and I could have been a better leader in many cases. All in all though, I never stopped dreaming, and dreaming big I may add.

So throughout my life and my career I noticed that the better the leadership around me, the better I seemed to perform. And the more I connected with those around me, the better I seemed to respond. And the more you challenge people, the more you seem to make them mad at you, unless they really want to be challenged, “Which is rare.” So really all you can do is tell the truth, and hope people will listen; and challenge yourself to set a better example for people to follow. Also, never stop dreaming, and dream big I may add.

So who am I to give leadership advice? Who am I to try to motivate the masses? I am the little shot who is going to keep shooting. I am some guy who has failed as much or more than I have triumphed. I am the guy who will read a lot and checks the facts before shooting my mouth off. And I am the guy who never stopped dreaming, and dreaming big I may add.
