The Benefits of Adversity

Leaders face problems everyday.  Some are mere challenges to overcome and be better for it.  Many times they are problems to be appreciated and solved.  As leaders, we know solving problems is a skill we need to continually hone and develop because there will always be a need! 

When we learn to appreciate problems for the opportunities they bring, everyone wins. In Sometimes You Win - Sometimes You Learn, Maxwell gives us this reminder, “problems always bring opportunities, and opportunities always bring problems.” 

Recently, Wes and I faced a major problem and you may be thinking me too!  Not all problems are major you know, there are minor problems, major problems and there are ‘minjor’ problems...they are not minor or major but if we don’t solve ‘minjor’ problems they will soon be major. If you follow NCIS at all you know Abby is a wordsmith and I learned this from her!

The problem we faced was a major...

Strength vs. Weakness

If you have a good idea of your strength areas and the areas you're not as strong in, you would do good to assess your interest and opportunities. If you'd like to discuss strengths and weaknesses we can do that to!
Knowing yourself isn't necessarily easy for everyone. It can be a process but the more you grow yourself, the more you'll know yourself. This is where many people miss it because they never grow enough to become more aware of themselves.
As we are growing, it's good to start paying attention to our passions.  What are we drawn to and most interested in?  Then we can focus in growth areas that will help us with our passions and areas of interest. As I (Cindy) learned through mentorship with Mark Cole, CEO, The Maxwell Enterprise, most of us will find that growth in the areas of relationships, equipping (us and others), attitude, and leadership are essential to reach our full potential.
Asking quality questions of ourselves is one way to increase awareness and...

As I (Cindy) caught up with a group of friends we chat with at the gym, one of us asked “who is excited about a new year coming?!” Since we were wrapping up 2020, you can imagine the howls and cheers coming from that simple question! We had some good laughs and shared a few hopes for the New Year, then went about the serious work of strengthening ourselves.

I couldn’t help but think of the strength a simple decision backed with Intentional Action will add to anyone’s life who chooses it. It certainly has added physical strength and increased quality...

Controlled By Outside Circumstances?

As Hill presses forward in his “interview” with the Devil, he’s able to uncover something that may seem overly simple at first glance but truly has the power to help us overcome all of those fears we’ve looked at leading up to this point!

When he forces the Devil to explain his process for assuming more and more control over someone (causing them to drift), Hill receives the following response:

“A drifter is one who permits himself to be influenced and controlled by circumstances outside of his own mind. He would rather let me occupy his mind and do his thinking than go to the trouble of thinking for himself. A drifter accepts whatever life throws in his way without making a protest or putting up a fight.”

What does this have to do with the faith we looked at in the last blog as part of Your Personal Success Equation? EVERYTHING!

Thomas Edison, one of the men Hill studied closely during his years of research leading up to ...
