Every scripture is God-breathed. (2 Tim. 3:16) The apostle Peter made a point in his final epistle that escaped my attention for a long time. He wrote, “I plan to keep on reminding you of these things—even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth.” (2 Peter 1:12)

Peter noted that his readers had already heard what he was writing about. They were standing firm in the truth, but he intended to keep reminding them. He even says it again: “Yes, I believe I should keep on reminding you of these things as long as I live” (verse 12). He’s saying he’ll never stop bugging them! 

On the day that I noticed this verse, I gained a greater realization of the importance of the written Word of God. The apostle Paul tells us: Every Scripture is God-inspired. Not some thoughts in Scripture, not some points in Scripture, but every Scripture is inspired by God.

9 Qualities of a Leader Who Achieves Change...

Change. Politicians promise it when they run for office, but seldom are the pledges made from campaign podiums matched by real, measurable results after an election. In fairness to our politicians, initiating change and carrying it through to completion is a monumental challenge. Attempts to bring about change encounter fierce opposition and entrenched resistance.

Although most leaders perceive a need for change, few leaders can convince others to believe in change, and fewer still can actually achieve change. Let's look at what it takes to be a leader who not only talks about change but also is able to make it happen.

1) Considers Conditions
Just because a change could be made doesn't mean it should be made. Sometimes an organization lacks the people, resources, or energy to successfully implement change. Leaders have to be sensitive to the rhythm of the organization in order to understand when the time is ripe to shift gears. Similarly, leaders have to monitor the pace of change. Too much at once can dishearten and overwhelm a team. While people must be prodded to make changes, they also should be allowed space to adjust themselves to new ways of doing things.

Babe Ruth was a slugger who brought fear to any pitcher that he faced. Hank Aaron hit an amazing number of homeruns. Those two guys could really hit a baseball. And homeruns are extremely exciting. However, there is another thing that they did more often. They struck out.

They struck out more often than they hit homeruns. This is acceptable in baseball, but this is not acceptable in life and especially in the work place.

You cannot fail more than you succeed and be profitable at work.

The other traders in the crude oil pit used to make fun of me for my style of trading. The only problem was that at the end of the year I was in the top two percent of the money makers down in the pits and I did this year in and year out.

What did I do that was different than everybody else? I stayed in my lane. I discovered what I was good at and I did it ruthlessly. They called me the cab driver. I would ring the cash register everyday. The market would move, I would get my piece. I wasn't trying to get rich on one trade. I wasn't looking to retire in one day. I wasn't trying to knock the ball out of the park. I was making decisions - pitch by pitch, situation by situation, and trade by trade.
