Business is not as usual. It has been a long season of change that is still unfolding. Many people have adapted to the constant change in the business world yet many are still trying to adapt. Others have not been affected at all and are completely clueless. Whatever category you find yourself in, doesn’t matter because change is inevitable. It affects us all. Eventually, the dominoes will fall as they may.
We live in a fear-based society where negativity is the norm and surrounds us on every side. We view the world as a cup that is half empty rather than half full.
It is critical that we shift our mindsets to inhibit positive change in our personal and professional lives. It’s not only in thinking but in the doing.
Positive thoughts lead to positive actions. Our families, our neighborhoods, our organizations, and our world reflects and reveals our actions, our thoughts, and our words which result in our behavior and our reactions.
Leaders are change agents and ones who lead and should lead with honesty, integrity, respect, and authority. Corruption and greed have no place in the equation.
When corruption takes root, it’s just a matter of time before the corruption is revealed. We see it in organizations and the media daily. When the head of leadership is corrupt, it is like cancer or a contagious disease that is spread throughout the body. Each department is “infected” and eventually the core values, morale, and attitudes start to decay.
There is a slow, sweeping change that is stirring. It is cleaning the house of leadership. It’s time to get it together. It’s time to get serious. It’s time to get your poor attitudes, unprofessional behavior re-adjusted and your thought patterns realigned. It’s time to get rid of those nasty habits and old ways of thinking because business is not as usual.
“Behold, I will do a new thing, Now, it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.” – Isaiah 43:19
