It All Depends on How You Look at It

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.

Sunrise

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,

1.)I am thankful for you. I met you today as a leader in our organization, Staeline YFC Il, gave me your book, Finding YourWay, and I am beginning to get inspired. I have worked tirelessly for 12 years in a frontline ministry and at this time my wife and I are going through a transition. I am usually very positive and stand upon the promises of God, but today I was slipping. I needed to hear what you were saying to remind myself of what I preach so many times to others.
2.)We work with young children and I believe that your materials could be a help.
3.) leadership training is always needed in today’s world and I am sure you have something for us there.
*i just got off the phone with our ED and he said that he saw Dan W at our National Convention in Chicago last winter. That is where he got the book.
I look forward to getting to know you more in the near future.
God Bless,
Dennis Elrick
