It’s Monday, the dawning of a new week. For some, you see it as an opportunity. For others, another day of drudgery.

Let’s face it, the beauty of a sunrise can become distorted by the reality of challenging circumstances.


If you want to have a great week, refuse to look at your challenges and focus on your blessings. While you may feel imprisoned, the sun is shining. 

A couple of nights ago, I went to bed, exhausted, only to find my wife had washed the sheets and they were still in the dryer. I had a choice to make. I could either embrace frustration and complain toward the person I love the most. Or, I could breathe a prayer of gratefulness, remembering that thousands around the world don’t even have a mattress, much less clean sheets.

Gratefulness is a choice rooted in perspective. You will be a better leader if you will make the choice to start with what is right in your world rather than what is wrong.

This really can be a great week. It all depends on how you look at it.

Leadership Begins at Home,
