#147: Being Different Is Underrated [Podcast]

Why Embracing Your Uniqueness Is The Key To Leadership Influence


Being Different

Fitting in, being accepted, understood, going along to get along, political correctness – the list goes on and on! Theese are presented to us every day from so many angles and viewpoints.

We’re constantly comparing ourselves to everyone else and measuring how unique we are based on the level of sameness we have with everyone else. It’s a disease!

Whatever happened to being who God made you to be? I want to challenge you today and propose Being Different is Underrated! Embracing your uniqueness is one of the essential keys to leadership influence. Let’s explore this together, shall we?

The Truth About Affirmations & Confessions


I’m willing to bet most of us don’t comprehend or realize the importance of affirmations and positive confessions. This is a real shame, considering the profound impact those have in our lives and our futures.

Remember Abraham? At nearly 100 years old, God told him, “You’re going to have a son.” Abraham chuckled and thought, “Yeah right.” Eventually, as his faith was locked in with what heaven’s will was, Abraham stood firm in the promise.

His belief was grounded in a place other than in the natural. You cannot look at your circumstance and accept it to be more powerful than the truth God has spoken about it. I love when people say, “That’s just not reality.” What reality are you subscribing to?

Any person who selects a goal in life which can be fully achieved has already defined his own limitations.
