Being a true leader is hard work and can be draining. I’m at home with no energy ready to audit my day and businesses, finding ways to improve and have better results . I always have to find the next lead, loan, listing, bid , project , and investment while everyone under me gets to relax and enjoy a good night sleep because Issac gots this .. Make sure your up for the task when you say your a leader. You can’t lead just yourself and call yourself a leader.. without uneasiness and failures, there is no growth. You think it’s hard working about your house hold? Think about making sure many house holds are good! I wish you all made it through the day safe, sound, and productive. May you all keep moving towards your goals and have a blessed night. Always donyour best because you never know who can be watching .. #issacthegreat#mentorlife#aleadersheart#leadbyexample#dontshowweakness#showonlygreatness#keepthepaininside#thisiswhatbringsouttherealyou
My God is all of this and more to me. I remind myself daily who God is to me and I come up with all of the above plus more. Sometimes when we go through struggles and hard times we can focus so much on the negative things. When we focus so much on the negative things you place yourself in the “Negative Nancy” mode. Everybody goes through things doesn’t matter who you are. It’s all about how you go through. Your attitude, your mindset, and your perspective all dictate your experience while you’re going through.
I can come up with so many life experiences that I’ve been through and let me tell you, some people would have folded at the very beginning. From being diagnosed with cancer, to struggling, highs, lows, and now my husband going through cancer I could have thrown in the towel. BUT I didn’t and I’m not gonna quit. Why? Because I know that God is working things out for my good. I know that he will never leave me nor forsake me. And I know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. So if you feel like you’re at the end of your rope, and feel like giving up. Keep pushing and remind yourself who God is. 🙏🏼🙏🏼 #pushthrough#breakthrough#godisable#miracleshappen#promisekeeper#overcomer#faithinit#inspirationalquotes#motivationalquotes#motivationalmoment#testimony#mytestimony#mystories#wifelife#marriedlife#lifementor#marriagementors
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream 🙏 .
We all admire Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the heroic way in which he lived his life!
But who did this great reverend look up to? And most importantly, what did he learn from his mentor?
One of Dr. King's mentors was Ralph Bunche, a professor at Howard University and diplomat who served at the US State Department and United Nations.
Bunche was the first African American to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950 for his work negotiating a peace agreement between Israelis and Arabs.
Bunche was also involved in the Civil Rights movement, and he attended the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom where Dr. King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech 🙏
Here are three things that Dr. King, and his fellow civil rights leaders, learned from Bunche:
✌️✌️First, buckle down and focus!
During the 1960s, the great reverend was taking on the issues of civil rights, poverty, and the Vietnam War. Bunche thought that King was spreading himself too thin and the movement would suffer as a result. Bunche thought they could accomplish more by concentrating their efforts on concrete actions.
✌️✌️ Second, be less public!
Bunche felt that civil rights leaders were too public with their opinions and actions, and that they should work more discreetly to generate less controversy.
"We learned that you can get anything you want done, as long as you give others credit," said an Ambassador Young. "When you are too public, it can be dangerous," he said.
✌️✌️ Third, look for contrarian viewpoints!
Bunche was an academic who liked to play devil's advocate, and he often disagreed with Dr. King's strategy and tactics.
By presenting an alternative viewpoint, he would make Dr. King look at an issue differently.
Over time, Dr. King learned to welcome and encourage disparate viewpoints so that he could consider all perspectives before making a final decision!
👌🏼You are never too smart or too old to have a mentor 👌🏼
