Look at ME, ME, ME!

Most people believe self-promotion is egotistical . But actually, nothing could be further from the truth. Here's what I mean...

People believe this because:
The limiting belief that self-promotion is egotistical is, again, rooted in misperception.
The misperception is that your “ego” wants you to be out in the world being all loud, proud, and self-promote-y, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
Your ego wants to keep you playing small. It wants to keep you “safe” in your comfort zone.

I used to believe this too. Here's what I used to believe and why:
I thought that sharing my book with the world that others would judge me for doing that.
My ego told me that if I was out in the world every day promoting myself and telling people about my book, I was showing off and bragging!
That I was now "too big for my britches."

Then something happened that changed my mind:
I was at an International Maxwell Conference and my Mentor John Maxwell presented a sermon that Miracles Happen Through The Use Of God's People.
The real problem was that my ego wanted to keep me playing small.
It wanted to keep me “safe” in my comfort zone, so it lied to me, telling me that I was big and conceited when really I wasn't.
What I needed was a new audience—the right audience.
I needed the right people who wanted the results they could find in the book.
Because I'm not out there with my book, and no one is getting the results I wrote about.

Now I believe that it's not egotistical to promote yourself. It’s confidence. It’s bravery. It’s putting the ego in its place. .

This means:
You came to this world with gifts to be shared, and it’s egotistical of you not to share them.

The big takeaway for all of us here is if you don't share what you've been called to do (write, lead, mentor, coach), that's egotistical.

I remember in 2004, I was looking for my first administrative position. I sent out over 200 resumes and went on about 50 interviews. My challenge at the time was that I was qualified, but did not have experience.

You are asking the same question I had. How do you get experience when nobody gives you a chance? I learned to leverage my teaching and leadership experiences in my current situation to better promote myself and the abilities to lead a school.

I want to show you how to as well.

If you are seeking a school leadership position schedule a complimentary consultation so I can help you advance your career. We have helped educators and professionals in other industries obtain positions and increase their salary by a combined total of $131,000. You are NEXT in line!

The Word Of The Day Is "Mentor"

When most people see the word mentor they quickly visualize a wise person to guide you.

When principals hear the word mentor they frequently think of someone who can show you the way.

However, many principals also think of some mentors are unapproachable (and some are not authentic).

On the other hand, when I hear the word mentor, I picture a shortcut to success.

Here's what I think about the word mentor as it pertains to school leadership, especially if you want to discover how to implement Strategic, Instructional, Culture & Climate, Organizational, Operational and Community Engagement Leadership in harmony.:

It's always easier to do something new with the help of someone who has "been there and done that"
Some people think mentors are expensive, but remember: you'll pay for experience one way or the other
Another way of saying that is "2 ways to get a mentor: seek to serve or pay to play"

Here's the big payoff for every principal: if you have a mentor, you'll reach your goals faster than without one.

Here's how every principal can make this a reality - decide what area you want to grow, find a person who has done it, and seek mentorship from them.

Oh, by the way, if you're a principal who wants to discover how to implement Strategic, Instructional, Culture & Climate, Organizational, Operational and Community Engagement Leadership in harmony., grab my new journal - The School Leader Reflective Journal, "Helping Leaders, Lead In Harmony!" - at https://amzn.to/3tDARjw right now.

Greetings and welcome to The Joy of Advent!

So many times, our Advent season, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, are filled with angst about gift-giving, hosting gatherings and the like. But, for true Christians, Advent is a time of joy! Its name means “to come to.” We are waiting in hope and joy for the celebration of the birth of our savior, the coming of Christ into our lives through the Eucharist, and the second coming of Christ at the end of time. There’s a lot there to be joyful about, don’t you think?

Let’s work on putting the Joy of Christ back into Advent. I’m not saying we need to abandon our traditions of gift-giving and cookie-making -- those are all fruitful ways to connect to family and friends in Christ -- but let’s put some holiness into our lives as well. If it’s not already there, work on infusing some of that joyful waiting that signals the coming of Christ.

Here are some ideas for getting into the true spirit of Advent:

--Fast. I know what you’re thinking, “Wait a minute. It’s this supposed to be a joyful season?” Yes, it is. However, in the Christian tradition, great feasts are typically preceded by a period of fasting. While fasting is not as prominent in the church today, it can help us grow closer to God and feel the joy of the feast more fully. Try abstaining from meat on Fridays as you do during Lent, limiting snacking between meals, or fasting all day until the evening meal once a week. Perhaps limiting all those pre-holiday treats will make the holiday even sweeter.

Don’t forget that you can also fast from activities that lead you away from God. Turn off your phone for one afternoon or evening each week and pray or read scripture. Fast from social media during the week. There are many options here.

--Pray a daily devotional. Find a book of Advent devotionals or sign up for one online. There are all kinds of these prayers available. Simply read and pray them daily. Take 10 minutes before bedtime or in the morning.

--Light an Advent wreath. You witness the Advent wreath lighting at church each week, but perhaps adding one to your home will help keep Advent top-of-mind. Light it during family or personal prayer time, and keep it in a prominent place in your home. Some families even make their own wreaths to make them more special.

--Hold off on decorating. This is a difficult one, but many times, when we decorate on Thanksgiving and keep the decorations up through Christmas, we lose the sense of waiting and subsequent joy on Christmas day. You might choose to put up a tree but leave the decorating for Christmas Eve or wait to put up your outdoor lights. Then, remember that the Christmas season lasts through Epiphany or Little Christmas, so you may choose to leave your tree up until then in celebration.
