Have Your Cake, and Eat It Too!

Do you want to be a better, more inspiring leader?  Your odyssey toward that end must first start with yourSELF.  SELF is an acronym for 4 aspects of leadership you must develop in yourSELF before you can lead others.

Sacrifice
Empowerment
Love
Friendship

SELF empowerment begins with truth.  Listen to this personal experience to understand what I mean….

If you want to have your cake, and eat it, too, then you must stop buying imitation desserts.  So many aspects of our society, our businesses, and our relationships are fake.  Consider the following:

1. Forgery of families imitates commitment and love

The collapse of family life: Most children in U.S. born out of wedlock
More than 5 children die every day as a result of child abuse

2. Counterfeiting of food imitates health and fitness

80% of America’s Food is Genetically Modified

3. Imitating violence as entertainment

Homicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24 years old
68% of American households play computer or video games


So many aspects of our lives are imitation. We want health, happiness, and safety; yet we take the wrong path to achieve them.  Later on, we wonder why our dreams are so fleeting.

 Truth
is the only way to combat imitations, forgeries and counterfeiting.  Truth is empowering

Truth: the family unit, consisting of two married parents, is the ideal to a thriving successful society and happy, well adjusted children.

Truth: we have enough natural resources to sustain every living person.  The only reason to modify our food is for financial gain.

Truth: children need to be taught values and boundaries so they can learn from consequences to their choices.

Living with truth, and avoiding imitation is the first step to
self-empowerment. 

Good choices = good consequences. 
Bad choices = bad consequences.
