5-Actions to Help You Lead Yourself

Tracy Washington

Executive Leadership Advisor

We are discussing how to be a leader of yourself, on the job, in your home and the marketplace. It is difficult to lead others if you do not know how to direct yourself. Jesus Christ is our perfect example a true servant-leader who governed himself with restraint and excellence. Our guest Tracy Washington is one of the nation’s leading trainers on Relationships, Human Behavior and Leadership.  She states, “Leadership is an influence. Our position is to become someone that someone else wants to follow.”

Tracy works with mid to senior level managers to help them improve relationships with teams, upper management, and customers so that they establish trust and respect that create a culture of profitability and success for themselves and their organizations.  She also runs a coaching program entitled “Executive RoundTable for Women in Leadership” to help women leaders elevate their leadership style.

Tracy is passionate about helping individuals and corporate clients profit by experiencing better professional and personal relationships.  Ms. Washington helps women find their true passions in order to reach their full potential. She states, “A woman that can make things happen understands they have power. Some feel like an imposter, but the feeling never goes away. We must walk with it, learn how to manage it and walk in confidence. “

Her key points of learning how to lead yourself are below:

1.        Self-care is first. You can’t get anything done from a deficit. As women, we give of ourselves without giving back to ourselves. Take care of yourself so you can properly care for others.

2.        Know who you are.  Do a personal assessment so you understand your unique qualities and identity in Christ. Understand that you are more than the roles you play. Take the time to figure out who you are.

3.        Inventory the relationships around you. Evaluate everyone in your life. Are you spending time with people who don’t add value to you? Are they pouring into you are taking from you?

4.        Raise your level of success. Look at the things that you don’t have to increase your worth. Invest in classes, coaching and read to help you get to your next level of success. Look at your finances and be a good steward.

5.        Don’t compare yourself to others. Get a mirror and look at your reflection. Appreciate who you are and where you are at this moment.

Part 1 - Growth under Duress

Deneen L. Garrett, Manager AT&T Universe

Stress is apart of our lives in one form or another. Romans 8:28 states, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”(NIV)

However, when the stress takes a toll on your health and spiritual well-being it is time to make a change. Ms. Deneen L. Garrett, a high performing manager, mother and community volunteer learned to make life adjustments to off-set health issues caused by stress. Deneen moved her family back to Detroit, from Las Vegas to lessen the stress and surround herself with a support system.  

Listen to my interview as Deneen shares her story what she practices to gain inner peace and impart it to her team and family.

Deneen’s tips include:

·         Praying the word of God and reading scriptures daily

·         Changing her diet and getting back to daily exercise

·         Self-reflection and quiet time in her car before work

·         Prioritizing her workload – cutting down the daily “To-Do” List

·         Making time for community service and family

·         Raising an independent child – She teaches her son do things for himself

Ms. Garrett’s purpose is to help others and make their lives better. Every day she seeks to make a difference in someone’s life.

My Sister’s Keeper by Angeline Lawrence

My Sister's Keeper
Angeline Lawrence, Host

Many of us have fallen short in some area of our life as Christians. Christ was adamant that we not judge others. Matthew 7:1 states, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” (NIV)     Rather, we should restore our sisters in the faith who have made mistakes, than ostracize them. Believers in the New Testament church were taught to help those that were weaker in the faith than they were.

Of course we must discern the situation and use wisdom. While some individuals are remorseful and want to rebuild their faith, there are others that are the opposite. Today, I will talk about ways to help individuals that have failed in their walk of faith, but need help to overcome. (Galatians 6:1) 

As members of the Kingdom of God who are strong, it is our duty to help restore them with love and gentleness.  Romans 15:1 states, “We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.” (NIV)

Thanks again for joining me on the Shine and Grind Show. I have a special offer for Shine and Grind listeners for the pre-sell of my book, "The Working Women's Guide to Winning: Defeat Satan at His Own Game with Integrity,” which will be published in 2015.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

The Gift that Keeps Giving

By: Angeline Lawrence

It's that time of year and everyone is busy making their holiday plans. However, let's pause to remember the true meaning of this holiday season. The salvation of Christ is a gift to mankind from God. Our access to that gift begins with the Holy Spirit. Once we have received the gift, we are endowed with supernatural abilities, such as healing, prophecy, and faith to name a few.

On the other hand, I Corinthians 13:2 states, “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”(NIV)

If we operate in our gifts without manifesting the love of God, we are just noise makers (I Corinthians 13:1). Seeking to bear the fruit of the Spirit will magnify our gifts and enable us to be acceptable in the sight of God. Jesus taught his disciples in John 15:5, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (KJV)

The gifts of the spirit are diverse but the true blessing is in the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 states, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”(KJV)

As we reflect on this year let us consider the fruit of the Spirit that is produced through our lives as Christians. I Corinthians 13:3 states, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Thank you again for joining me. I am offering all Shine and Grind listeners a free eBook, "Hearing the Voice of God.”  In it I provide 5 steps to position yourself to be led by the voice of God in your life. Grab your copy at http://bit.ly/1rdRCgs.

I also have a special offer for Shine and Grind listeners for the pre-sell of my book, "The Working Women's Guide to Winning: Defeat Satan at His Own Game with Integrity” that will be published in 2015. The book will provide more strategies for effective communication with God. Go ot the link and pre-order your copy today http://bit.ly/10GBGrx. Every pre-order will receive a free audio chapter of the book.

New Announcement:

January 2015 is a new start. January 1st is the launch of my one-on-one and group coaching sessions. As a life strategist, I will help you create a winning plan for your next dimension of success.  If you have a strong desire to do something more with your life, but not sure where to start, then contact me for a free 30-minute consultation.

Being A Good Team Member

Being a Good Team Member

by: Angeline Lawrence

A team can’t work together without effective communication and the sacrifice and endurance of its members.  As fellow Christians, we must seek to work together and be unified as we build God’s kingdom.  I Corinthians 1:10 states, “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” (NIV)  

So how do we unite the thoughts of a group of people that are from various backgrounds? Although we're united by the Holy Spirit, there are still some steps needed to achieve oneness in mind and thought.  Listen in as I discuss some of the ways to become a good team member.

Team Work Makes the Vision Work By: Angeline Lawrence

Teamwork Makes the Vision Work

By: Angeline Lawrence

The Body of Christ is the vision that God has for His kingdom. I Corinthians 12:3, states, “Even so the body is not made up of one part but many.” (NIV) It is a work of beauty to see the members of the kingdom of God work together in one accord (Psalms 133:1-2). He executes his master plan to fulfill his will within our lives.

Today I discuss the importance of being a member of this divine team. We should not look at the leaders and ministers that are in the forefront of the Kingdom and feel excluded. I Corinthians 12:18 states, “But in fact God has placed the parts of the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.” (NIV) Each member has an important role. We must stay ready and be in a position for God’s purpose.

Thank you again for listening. If you are seeking ways to Hear God Speak into your life, visit www.angelinelawrence1.instapage.com to obtain our free eBook, "How to Hear God Speak." I provide 5 steps to position yourself to hear the voice of God in your spirit.

 

How Deep Is Your Love?

How deep is Your Love?

By: Angeline Lawrence

The love that Christ has for us is immeasurable. However, we must show Him the depth of our love through the sacrifices we make in our lives. Matthew 10:38, states, “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.” (KJV)  All of Christ’s followers had to prove they could love him more than anything, including money, possessions and ultimately family. We must be willing to lose our current lifestyle, and sometimes friends and family to truly walk with Christ.  Listen in as I talk about loving Christ above all things in our lives. We must stay focused by eliminating distractions that will side track us from following Christ.
