Weekly Tips

Tip: Be willing to receive correction

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

A couple of weeks ago, I did a Tip about the Lone Ranger. I talked about how much I admired the delicate balance he demonstrated between having an ego that was big enough to make him believe he could impact his world for good, yet having a heart of humility and compassion, which he displayed at the same time. In the article, I mentioned the Lone Ranger’s Indian side-of kick, whose name was Tonto and his horse, Scout. At that time, I thought the horse was a palomino.

Tip: There is purpose in slow growth!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Nature teaches us so many wonderful truths. Some of them are easy to accept, while others are more difficult to grasp. I believe one of the greatest challenges I have experienced in my own personal life is being willing to accept the fact that genuine, solid growth is usually very slow. Fast growth is always more comfortable for me! I think almost everyone would agree that it seems logical to want to see our lives grow quickly so we can feel as though we are making good progress in our personal growth and development rather than going nowhere fast!

Tip: Everyone should be like the Lone Ranger!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

When I was a child growing up, I could not wait for Saturday mornings so I could watch “The Lone Ranger” television show. Everything about him thrilled me! He was such an intriguing character! He rode a white stallion by the name of Silver, wore a mask that protected his unusual identity, and was often misunderstood by law-abiding people. He had a sidekick Indian companion by the name of Tonto, who had a beautiful paint horse by the name of Scout. The Lone Ranger even had special bullets on his gun holster that were made of pure silver. He was THE MAN!

Tip: Wisdom is hard to beat!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Have you ever had a situation where you did not know exactly how to handle things? Those times are usually extremely difficult and stressful. Typically, the problem itself is not the biggest challenge that we face. The real stress comes from not knowing what to do about the problem. Such a situation happened in my family many years ago.

Tip: You have the right to start over!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

I love the opportunity to start over! Life is designed in such a way as to give us many fresh starts. Every morning the sun comes up to give us a new day. Each new month offers us a chance to start all over again. And, of course, at the end of each year we complete, the calendar rolls forward to award us 365 new opportunities.

Almost everyone in the world has heard of Michael Jordan. He is probably one of the greatest basketball players who ever lived. But did you know that he was cut from his high school basketball team when he was in the tenth grade because he was not good enough to make the team? I find that to be ironic! The man who turned out to be one of the five best professional basketball players of all-time had an occasion in his younger days when he could not even make the team!

Tip: Sometimes you have to get desperate before you can get creative!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

A while back I ran into some electrical problems in our office at Personality Insights. One of the circuit breakers blew, which caused power to go out in several different rooms. When the electrician came to work on the problem, I pointed out to him that several of our overhead light fixtures were also not working. He got his ladder and began to try to diagnose the problem. Boy was I in for a shock!

Tip: Your devotion determines your emotions!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

One of the most difficult aspects of life is to understand emotions. When I was in high school, my good friend, David Gentry, used to tell me that we could not control our emotions or how we felt about things. Although there is a lot of truth to that, when we grow up, there comes a point at which we must begin to exercise control over our emotions. After all, we cannot simply allow our feelings to determine whether we will be hard-working, committed adults. If we lean on our emotions, it will not be long before our life begins to fall apart.
