“Mom is in intensive care on a breathing machine.  Come as quickly as you can.”  My brother interrupted my Friday night happy hour a few years ago with those words.  As you can imagine, I was horrified!  How could my mom who I’d just spoken to hours before be in intensive care?  The earliest flight I could get on was the following morning and those overnight hours felt like a lifetime.

In his book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John C. Maxwell, Leadership Guru of the world speaks about the Law of Connection.  Connection is NOT easy because people are diverse and there is no cookie cutter method to connect with those around you.  Maxwell advises that leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand.  When you think about that statement, how does it resonate with you?  Has this been your experience?  How many of your leaders touched your heart before they asked for your hand?  Or when have you as a leader, connected with those you lead by touching their hearts before asking for their hand?

As a young girl, I used to enjoy sitting outside at night gazing at the stars.  I was so fascinated by their brilliance.  As I watched the stars, I would often dream about whom I wanted to be and what I wanted to do when I grew up.  As a child, did you ever daydream about what your future life would be like?  Did you ever get lost in thoughts of how you would accomplish your dreams and live a successful and abundant life?  I am sure at some point we all had visions and perhaps still have visions of what our future would be like.
