Faith & Leadership Journey



This is day 2 of John Maxwell’s 365 day reader.

I woke up excited and nervous. Today I had a webinar scheduled with Maps coaching.On a topic I am very knowledgeable of. However I had one of those dreams that everything went wrong. Electronic issues, no one showing, and everything went wrong. However the spirit of fear. Was something I let worry me… And it should not have. Because I know god has his hand in our life and the future of my family.

What do you do to overcome fear. Get in the right headspace? 

For me – I listen to Christian music loud and get outside and get some steps in. 

This is one of my favorite songs that helps me – I listen to it on repeat.

Just as the growth of tropical fish is limited by the size of the aquarium in which they live, you are affected by your environment. 

That’s why it’s crucial to create an environment of growth around you. That kind of place should look like this: Others are ahead of you: When you surround yourself with people from whom you can learn, you are more likely to grow. 

Environment. What does yours look like??

Since Covid I have been on a mission to make my environment and my families better.

Outside I find a lot of peace. 10,000 steps a day minimum. 

I created a great office space and I love to burn candles in the morning. 

Having an environment that we can relax and get away was important for myself and my husband during this time frame.

We have an amazing pool and event bought a above ground jacuzzi.

This is my escape.. And worth every dollar. Above ground jacuzzi.

You are still challenged: Complacency kills growth.

Your focus is forward: If you’re thinking more about the past than the future, your growth has probably stopped. 

Following a highly time blocked schedule. Even blocking to get up and take a walk has been transforming for me..

I know what I do… Each and every day. And know what I can improve on. I recommend you creating a google drive that you can view and reflect. Journal, projects, planning for the future. Keep in one location so you can check it out and reflect. It will help you continue to build.

The atmosphere is affirming: Industrialist Charles Schwab said, “I have yet to find the man . . . who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.” 

You are out of your comfort zone: Growth requires risk. Ronald E. Osborne stated, “Unless you do something beyond what you’ve already mastered, you will never grow.” Others are growing: When it comes to growth, it’s better to swim in a school than to try to do everything on your own. There is a willingness to change: Clayton G. Orcutt declared, “Change itself is not progress, but change is the price that we pay for progress.”

Growth is modeled and expected: In the best possible environment, growth is not only allowed, but leaders model it and expect it from everyone. And when that happens, everyone’s potential is off the charts. —Your Road Map for Success 

Believe in your self.

We launched an app this week for our team members to be more productive and virtual.

Would love to hear what you are doing to create an environment of growth for the people in your world.

So incredible thankful for the lessons learned, the growth, my family, and the amazing people in our world.



Until tomorrow have a great day!
