Like many people I put off working on the class until the last second. I really started to think about the class when I was flying back from I Leadership Retreat I was presenting at in Pennsylvania.
The class became a motivator for me because, I found the notes recently and they helped me focus on the goals I've set for 2013 and beyond.
Here are the note/talking points from the class that I taught.
Today is February 26, 2013.
Another goal of mine is to encourage people to grow. Helping others grow also helps me with my goal to grow spiritually and mentally this year. I was reminded of this when I received this letter from a student named Ashley.
Hey Frank and Rodger,
I wanted to say thank you for the leadership retreat today. I know it was supposed to remind us of why we are leaders and how we influence others, but it reminded me of so much more.
I am senior and my best friend graduated last semester. It has honestly been pretty miserable here for the past month. Your leadership retreat made me realize, it's miserable because of me.
I forgot how easy it is to smile and to laugh and to be silly. You guys really have a way with words. Your lessons were felt today. They gave me back the little bit of spunk I was missing for awhile there.
I honestly thought going into it, oh boy, another person preaching.
However, you didn't preach. You taught. You reminded. You impacted. You gave me back my value.
So as I sat here and wrote down a grocery list, I remembered the littlest things and the major things, and I just wanted to make sure that a thank you to the both of you was included.
Thank you for helping me find the BAD in me again,
What is a goal you’re working on this year?
Here is a link to the video. G.O.S.P.E.L.
We're about half way through the year. It's time to regroup. Just because you haven't hit your goals yet, or you're not on the pace you set, it doesn't mean you stop working towards your goals. FOCUS on the prize and get back to work. Share your ideas with people closest to you. Pray or meditate and remember their is no EASY button in life, you have to work for everything you earn.
