INTEGRITY Dr Henry Cloud 30/01/17
the three essentials
character, more than competence
create growth in their organisation, their profits, their industry, their profession
Gain the complete trust of the people to capture their full hearts
deal with problem people, negative situations, obstacles, failures, setbacks
Transcend their own interests and give themselves to larger purposes
share your values and commitments with the ones you love
kids that grow up with deep connections are the ones that grow up secure, and most able to deal with life
enter in another persons experience and connect with it
the human heart will seek to be known, understood, and connected with above all else.If you do not connect, the ones you care about will find someone who will
in touch with reality
Narcissism, giving into external pressures, or chasing an ideal image of themselves will take them in the wrong direction. But humility and secure identify will take them in another, leaving a much different wake. Face the truth about yourself
But when you look at truly successful people long term, they do not make impulsive, rash decisions, they can wait, plan and look at angles.
Perserverance takes courage, stamina, emotional reserves, judgement, creativity, and other aspects of character, but without character, great things do not happen.
Peoples ability to make something work has everything to do with their ability to let go of something that does not work, grieve it, and move on
Orientating oneself and intellectually understanding that life is about problems is one thing. Being equipped to deal with them and resolve them is quite another. This is one reality that requires mature equiptment.
The masses enjoy the "comfort zone" They do whatever is most comfortable, even it its not going to get them to 'profit' whatever that is. But the winners see putting their arms around the problem as their way to the promised land, and their character will allow them to do no less.
People with character, when facing a negative, embrace it, they do the hard work first. They do the hard work before going on holiday.
Character, integrity, reality
dont become too reliant on others peoples performance
you must be able to delay gratification and and keep going while it is all building
dont get sidetracked by new opportunities
develop a stomach for tough tasks,
orientated towards increase
For someones character to grow, it has to be free from internal attack. Growth requires taking steps into unchartered territory.
For people to integrate new capabilities or internalise new skills from the outside, the have to try new things
people of integrated character step out to take risks, in that they will be vulnerable and and open themselves up to people
Help others develop more |
best way to retain anything is to teach it
you dont need all the gifts in the world to, you need all the aspects of character while you are putting your gifts too work
work with others for multiplication effect
FOLLOW UP PRAYERS
to demonstrate all of these day to day
to encourage other believers to do so
