The Wednesday Call Live! with Andy Albright 09/20/2017
The Wednesday Call (TWC) for September 20, 2017: On this episode of The Wednesday Call live with Andy Albright, you will find out why Attitude and Expectations toward new people you hire are so important.
When a storm is coming your way, what do you do?
So many of you were impacted by the recent Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida, but the reactions by people were markedly different.
Some people stopped doing everything and watched things unfold. Others, started moving away from the storm and got back to work. The people that kept doing and didn't let it stop them from what was most important to them are probably going to be more successful than the people who sat on the couch and watch hours and days of TV. A lot of people gave money or time to help those who needed help.
Watching the storm on TV didn't help them. Sitting and watching TV wasn't going to help people that needed water, food and shelter. It also wasn't going to help fix the damage that had already been done.
The right thing to do when things are happening around you is to stay focused on what you are doing.
You have to love people in the right and proper way.
John 13:34 says, "A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 13:35 says, "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples."
In the United States culture, people are taught the following:
- I use people
- You are NOT my problem
- I hate you
- I love you conditionally
- I love you genuinely (if you are my baby, my pride and joy)
Treating people in those kinds of ways is not good. It is how you will lose people in time. They will get tired of being treated this way. They will not hang around for long. They will not like it.
The old Bible says this about people ...
Immeasurable value (people only appreciate value, people matter most of all.)
Universal equality (P.H.D. is the same as a Post-Hole Digger) Everybody has the same shot.
Everyone is in need of mercy (you don't know what people are going through) We are all a mess when you break it down.
Everyone has unique gifts! (See them inside of people – big!)
Be a friend (Be a buddy to others)
You are family (Get your cousin a plate!)
There are some simple things that are ways you can be important to other people. What if everybody worked actively to do the following things?
- Show affection (hugs, high 5, touch, words, text, gifts)
- Show honor (treat people like they are important, very important)
- Give them preference (people have needs)
- Serve one another (we are all messed up)
- Pray for others
- Give to people
- Show hospitality and civility
- Edify while alive (dead noses smell no roses. Find the good!)
- Rejoice and Celebrate (small and big wins)
- Weep with people
- Forgive and DO forget (The best way to ruin a marriage is to remember stuff)
NOW, when you do those things you can find the right people. Stop managing and start leading!
The Alliance is looking for the next biggest leader NOW! Keep looking for the right people. Find people you believe can be big. Watch them, but keep building wide. Keep building while you are looking for people.
Be nice. Watch what people do more than what they say. Action speaks truth more than idle words. People were created equally, but that doesn't mean treat them equally. Watch motion. Lead more than you manage. Let their actions dictate how much you invest in them.
