Faith in the Leadership; Professing is not Enough

solutionWhen you leader others, you want them; no you need them to have faith in your thoughts, words, and deeds. If they do not have that faith, they will falter when things get tough, or worst, they will seek out another leader whom they perceive will better fit their needs. For the leaders of companies, organizations, or even families this lack of retention can be a very big problem. Continue reading “Faith in the Leadership; Professing is not Enough”

Financial / Insurance Planning; Founded on the Power of the Wisdom of Three

March 21, 1983 marked the beginning of a remarkable journey that would last a lifetime.  This journey has been shared with my family, many dear friends, and countless audiences throughout the world.  I have been blessed to observe the emotional impact created by the retelling of the stories from this journey.  Stories that make people laugh with joy, cry with compassion and think differently with love about life in general; all through the efforts to educate, share life’s learning experiences, and to grow society’s embrace of the truth through moral and ethical principles.

The Seed; A Lesson in Business

The Wisdom of Three Character Traits of a LeaderA successful businessman was growing old and he knew that it was time to choose a successor to take over the business. Instead of choosing one of his directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.

He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you.” The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a seed today – one very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.” Continue reading “The Seed; A Lesson in Business”

They are to be Honored and Memorialized

Memorial DaySpringtime is a lovely time of the year. The air is filled with the smells of blossoms and fresh cut grass. The comfortable temperatures entice and draw us to enjoy the outdoors. This weekend will be no different in those ways but you will have the added benefit of seeing many stars and stripes flapping in the breeze. Your family may take part in a parade or host a family picnic to recognize a special group of loved ones that you wish to remember. Regardless of the activities you participate in this weekend; I hope we all set aside time to celebrate this most righteous of holidays. For it is as a united Country that we should set aside our differences to come together as a whole to honor and memorialize those brave men and women who gave their all so that each of us can continued to live in freedom, liberty, and peace.

Personal & Professional Growth

Personal GrowthA good friend and I reminisced yesterday about a gentleman that changed our lives through one of his most powerful beliefs. As I now try to positively impact the lives of others, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones’ inspired character caused me to adapt that saying to include a third component; high moral and ethical character, to the statement.

I am positive he will give me a big hug when we meet again in Heaven. “What can I say Charlie, I love the Wisdom of Three!”

If this is my last post, I want all to know there was only one purpose for all that I have written; to have made a positive difference in the lives of others.

One City, Two Strangers, Two Perceptions

Two Strangers One City Two PerceptionsOnce more we can experience the power of the Wisdom of Three as presented through the eyes of Wise King Solomon. He was a Master at the art of understanding the human condition long before psychology was a science.  This is one example of why.

“This is a tale of two strangers visiting the same city on the same day and the account of their perception of the people they encountered while there.

Palmyra, Syria

Palmyra, SyriaPalmyra, Sryia, during the reign of Solomon, was primarily Jewish but was heavily populated with Greeks as well. In my research, I found an early writing of the area that speaks of a story of Solomon solving a theft incident in the city Palmyra itself. This was said to be one of the rare times that Solomon left the palace in Jerusalem to judge a case on the site of the incident. I will not give the story away…it will be in my next book, but it was an intriguing example that Solomon was part detective as well as judge.  Stay tuned for more.  In the meantime, pick up your copy of “The Bloodline of Wisdom, The Awakening of a Modern Solutionary” at Amazon or a local Barnes & Noble.
