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.

Servant or Self-Serving? by Angeline Lawrence

Servant or Self-Serving 

by Angeline Lawrence

Today I want to pose a question to the women (and men) of faith that are in the trenches for Christ. Do you need a title and/or acknowledgement from others to fulfill the ministry God has placed in your life?  I must confess that for years I hesitated to work in my ministry because I believed I needed a formal title.  I was given a wakeup call by God one day that changed my life.  He let me know, through the Holy Spirit, that I did not need title. I only needed him. 

Jesus, again, serves as the high standard of faith. He was consumed with completing the mission of God, but did it with humility.  Listen in as I discuss Philippians 2:7 regarding the way we should serve God. Are we his servants or are we just self-serving?

Thanks again for listening. Start today by subscribing to the podcast here. Connect with us on Facebook and tell us your thoughts about today’s episode.

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 soon. The book will provide more strategies for overcoming life’s challenges such as workplace bullying. Get started now and receive a free audio chapter from the book.

Watching over the Vision

Watching Over the Vision

By: Angeline Lawrence


The job of a visionary does not end with simply writing down the plan.  The hard part is getting a great team to help execute it.  We can learn how to watch over the vision from some of the great leaders mentioned in the Word of God.

One of the most renowned female leaders of Israel was Deborah, a powerful woman of God that was a judge over the people of Israel.   Deborah charged Barak to fulfill the order given by God to lead an army of men to attack the nation’s enemy. He responded in Judges 4:8, “Barak said to her, “If you go with me, I will go; but if you don’t go with me, I won’t go.”  The most talented people on a team will still need the support of their leaders to get the job done. 

In addition, God watches over every word he speaks to man as stated in Jeremiah 1:12. He positions his spirit-filled leaders to execute his vision and intercede on his behalf. Download the new episode now and listen as I discuss, “Watching over the Vision.”

Leadership under Pressure

Leadership under Pressure

By: Angeline Lawrence

Leadership always comes with a price. Many of us will face adversity as we seek to lead others in the right path. However, our position as leaders is a great opportunity for us to glorify God. We must remember to exude confidence and integrity when we are under pressure.

Listen in today as I discuss the steps to be a leader under pressure. God is our secret weapon and if we stand on his promises, then he will work on our behalf every time. Psalms 37:7 states, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”(NIV) God makes the final decision, so if he elevates us, then he will watch over us and help us win.

Love Your Enemies By Angeline Lawrence

Love Your Enemies

by: Angeline Lawrence, Host


Being on the receiving end of taunts and bullying can be detrimental to our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.  As Christians, many of us were not built to give great comebacks when insulted.  Christ taught his disciples to love everyone, especially their enemies because he held them to a higher standard of righteousness. 

Matthew 5:44 states, “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” (NIV) Christ taught them that true faith in God was more than the observance of laws and ordinances.  Christ emphasized the importance of displaying the same characteristics of compassion, equity and virtue as the Creator.  The ability to pray for individuals who work against us embodies great strength and righteousness.  Our Creator bestows His love and blessings upon everyone, even individuals that do not obey His Word.  We must learn to love the people that hate us. 

In honor of one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the history of America, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

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)

Rejecting Disruptive People

Rejecting Disruptive People

by: Angeline Lawrence, Host
Walking with God can be a lonely path at times. I know God will never leave us, but having a brother/sister in the faith we can relate to is priceless.  Occasionally, we will connect to other believers that seem to be our friends, but in reality they are more like “Frenemies” who seek to gossip about us. 

Today, I want to talk about rejecting individuals that are self-serving trouble makers.  We can all identify with the “busy body,” who will chase the sincere believers away because of the confusion they cause. 

II Thessalonians 3:6 states, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.” (NIV) Oftentimes, letting go of close relationships can be difficult. Especially when it is a person that you consider to be a friend. However, it is important to stay clear of individuals who keep up confusion. They are not about working on our Father’s business because they are prying in the business of others.

How to Overcome Fear by Angeline Lawrence

Overcoming Fear

Angeline Lawrence, Host

In past episodes, I discussed the love God has for us. If that love is strong and without any fear, then we are unstoppable.  Fear is defined as an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger.  It does not have to be an actual threat, but our anticipation of a threat. Fear can paralyze us and hinder our faith walk.

We must overcome the fear to show that we’ll obey the voice of God regardless of the situation. Ultimately, our love for God is shown through obedience to Him.

Yes, we may naturally have concerns when God is taking us through an experience in our lives that is new. Yet, we must obey his Word and follow his voice so that our love is perfect. I John 4:18 “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” (NIV)

Listen in as I discuss overcoming fear.

Thanks again for joining me and Happy New Year.

No Greater Love By: Angeline Lawrence

No Greater Love

By: Angeline Lawrence

Christ showed us His love with the personal sacrifice He made on Calvary. John 15:13 states, “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”(KJV) However, the love of Christ did not end with that act. He continues to love us on an intimate basis.  

Today, on this day of Thanksgiving, I want to discuss the intimacy that we can enjoy with Christ. The Songs of Solomon 7:9 states, “And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth down sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.”  

The Song of Solomon chronicles the love of King Solomon and the Shulamite girl (His Bride), but it also represents the love Christ has for His Bride, the Body of Christ (the Church). His Holy Spirit is finer than the best wine. Once we receive the Spirit of Truth, we are renewed and can fellowship with Christ.
