Stephen Mogagabe letter to leaders from Obama's experience
FOR LEADERS ONLY: Never allow stress and people's complaints STRESS YOU. YOU END UP AGING QUICK BECAUSE OF KEEPING THINGS IN YOUR HEART.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
1) hear it and throw it the other way
2) the gossip they circulate, allow them to talk, but never allow the gossip to poison your soul
3) refuse to sit there thinking and stressing yourself about useless things
LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO KEEP PEOPLE'S WORDS IN YOUR HEART. Life does not revolve around people. REFUSE TO BASE EVERYTHING ON PEOPLE. Life comes from GOD(Jesus). He said i am the...WAY, TRUTH, LIFE! When you listen to people; you end up:
- UNneccesarily burdened
- LOOSING FOCUS
- SICK AND OVERLY-TIRED
REFUSE WORRIES! Enjoy life!
I HAVE SEEN PREACHERS AGE QUICKLY TOO! It is for the sole reason of taking your job at home! LEAVE CERTAIN THINGS IN THE FIELD! Dont carry them home.
DESIRE A BALANCED LIFE! Stress/worries according to the bible===> DO NOT ADD ANY HEIGHT TO YOUR LIFE.
THAT IS WHY IN LIFE YOU MUST BE 'DEAF' to CRITICS. Learn that fast before you age and die before your time.
LEADERSHIP IS A POSITION WHERE YOU MUST WALK CIRCUMSPECTLY. The reason why president age quickly is because of LETTERS WRITTEN TO THEM.
EVERY PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD RECEIVE IN A DAY, A MINIMUM OF TEN (10) LETTERS TO READ. Those ten(10) letters are the ones which stress them MORE THAN THE JOB ITSELF. THEY LOOSE THE FUN OF LIFE IN THE READING OF CERTAIN LETTERS.
You cannot wake up everyday to solve problems. YOU MUST REST AS A HUMAN BEING! Rest from letters, from emails, from doing your daily work===> for a period of time.
AND IN LIFE, NEVER DO EVERYTHING! GIVE PEOPLE THE JOB TO SOLVE WHAT YOU ARE UNABLE TO DO! Dont be a people pleaser!
