Get Over It.

Just when you thought getting through the adolescent and teenage years was difficult; welcome to the big leagues of parenthood. One of the last things you’ll want to do is lose your focus because of a few strikeouts.

Considering everyone’s journey to parenthood involved numerous mistakes, miscues, and errors; there is nothing quite as lethal as leading from behind.

Your greatest assets, being your children, have grown to be a liability over the years because your leadership is a reflection of your fear to guide, counsel, correct, and discipline them in the areas where you have personally made repeated mistakes, miscues, and errors.

Get over it. Get over yourself, and lead. Feeling good about making right decisions is not a prerequisite of Parenting or leading. It takes a village to raise a young man or woman of character and integrity.

Listen, train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. This doesn’t mean your child won’t make mistakes, but it does mean they will have a conviction of truth in them to return to the only place they know there is peace.

Until next time, Be encouraged.


I speak to hundreds of thousands of young adults, men, women, and couples annually on leadership, decision making, and relationships.  Sometimes life has a way of being the antidote to life itself. If you’d like more information on this topic or how to bring me in as a speaker for your next event, please  contact me.
