Be Kinder, to everyone that I encounter.
Love more, my family, my circle and others.
Reach out, to a friend that I haven’t seen in a while.
Stand Up, for someone less fortunate.
Accept, my weakness’s and fears.
Encourage, another and myself..
Walk slower, so I can better smell the Roses,
Believe, that I can make a difference.
Trust, that Jesus was crucified, died and rose from the grave to save the world.
Today I will..
By Rod Dion
You’ve heard the expression once I was lost and now I’m found. We’ve all heard it! I’m not exactly sure that we all get this quote. But I’m going to put my spin on it. As we grow, develop, learn and progress through our life hopefully we find IT.
My story is not unlike a lot of you. I’ve heard it said we all had grappa childhoods yes grappy.
We all reach for the feeling of worth and significance or the lack of it. We are trying to find it. At least that was me.
I would like to share a personal story with you.
5 years ago I became very sick, the doctor’s prognosis was not good. My father died at an early age of Lewe body dementia and Parkinson’s after spending three years in nursing care.
At one point in my sickness, I didn’t speak for nearly 4 weeks, I was kind of in a catatonic state according to my family who was caring for me.
In desperation, I was taken to a healing conference on the mountain that I lived at for 10 years and something was taken off of me. I could actually feel it leave me.
I believe the Grace of God took these afflictions from me and put me on my current path of trying to help others.Today, I praise God every day for saving me from an agonizing and uncertain death.
My business life prior to moving to Colorado was very successful financially and I my services was in high demand and Financially rewarding.￼
I’ve already had these things and they didn’t really make me fulfilled or satisfied.
It’s been said the two most important times in your life was the day you were born and the day you figure out why. I figured out why.
It’s hard to build an organization without financial assistance. But-its my-opinion is that as long as I’m not asking for your or anyone else’s money that I can do this and not be seen in the negative way that so many people, businesses or churches are looked upon. We think there just doing this for the money and there are a lot that are* However, I do believe it’s possible to make a difference in the lives of people, children, family, community and the world if we work together and STAND UP.
So. Once I was lost and now I am found.
According to one of my medical Drs. and I quote
I must’ve been misdiagnosed because no one ever comes back from those diseases.
Well, I’m back and going strong thanks to the grace of God who wasn’t done with me.
This lesson as I personally see it,
Everybody fails, its a fact of life. What we do with this experience defines our future and or growth.
Fact 1. Everybody fails.
Fact 2. Nobody enjoys it.
Fact 3. Anybody can fail forward
We as adult leaders need to let kids know its an essential process to success. it may be the most important thing you ever teach your children.
Think of all the great people in history who were great failures.

Just to mention a few people that we think of great successes, and the list is endless.
The one thing they all have in common is the tenacity to never, ever, Quit.
This is one of the most critical things we can teach our children.
Please, never, ever, allow yourself to condemn them for trying and failing. Alway, be supportive and encouraging when they fail at anything. tell them they will do it better next time and encourage that next time to happen right away!
Teach them that every failure is a learning experience and that they should try, fail, evaluate and then repeat the process until they get it. Another thing that is important to remember is that winners never QUIT and that Quitters never win.
We have all seen a stranger berating their child in public. unfortunately, they never had anyone teach them that failure is not an option when it comes to giving their child a sense of self-worth, hope, and security.
My hope is that you will never be that person and I pray for these unfortunate little children who eventually grow with this kind of parent. Is it any wonder why we see so much anger, hatred, and violence in our schools today?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS I ASK MYSELF:
My, notes and thoughts from John this morning after listening to this morning podcast.
Here is an interesting list of facts as he sees it.
John says in this podcast that innovators are only 2 % of the people in most organizations.
These people see the problem and seek to find ways to implement it.
He goes onto say that 13% are early adopters, and we need these people to win whatever change we are looking tom make.
Next, we have the early majority wich he says equal 14% and they are a more obvious way to see the effectiveness of the plan.
Next, we have the later majority which equals 34% and the laggard ard 16%.
My thought here is that 50% of people really don’t seem to care much about change actually wanting to avoid it. As work to develop my Mentoring For Change program and helping young people change their current habits in order to have a better life that It is very obvious to me now that I will be going up against the larger majority who don’t want change. So far where I live there is not much help from people in the community. With the exception of a few men, most of the time I feel like I’m going at this alone other than with God.
