In order to grow we need to adapt and keep up with the rapid change that takes place with technology, science, etc. Adapting to the constant change around us can be difficult and burdensome. But if we don't get involve and understand God's word and values we'll realize that a lot of the choices we make can be unfruitful. One thing that'll never change are the truth's in God's word, which point to our very existence from the beginning. God created us to subdue the earth, cultivate it, build on it, serve Him, and to do everything to His glory. Having God's word within us is a powerful reminder that helps us make good choices in a world that changes rapidly.
Sometimes we all need to step back, stop, and think about what's important to us? Is it our Business, Health, Well-Being, Financial Security, Family etc. If our relationship with Him isn't right, then nothing in life we work at will be. Stop and Think, is there any more to life than what I make of it? Can I make the sun rise, the clouds move, or make it rain. Truth is, it's only by His Grace alone!
Work is much more than what we do, it can be "Who We Are" by using the gifts that were given to us. We all need to ask the question; How are we using the gifts that God gave us for the purpose of others?
It's no coincidence that God gave us all unique talents and gifts to be used for his master plan; Jeremiah 29:11"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". Unfortunately our society uses the gifts and talents that we posses as a measuring tool for success. Find your gift and use it to benefit others!
Team STAYNTELL had an awesome time at the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast 2012. The biggest lesson we learned from this was to become a selfless leader to those around you, in your organization, or in your community.

We had a blessed day visiting the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast
Team STAYNTELL is excited to visit Atlanta this weekend to attend theChick-Fil-A Leadercast2012for the first time!
The choices you make define the leader you become. And the choices you make are not just about you. They're about the positive impact you can have on your organization, your community, and beyond. Our world needs everyday leaders who will choose to make it a better place. That's what Chick-Fil-A Leadercast 2012 is all about.
We're super excited to listen and learn alot from all the speakers involved including Tim Tebow, Andy Stanley, andJohn Maxwell to be Challenged, Inspired, and Encouraged!
The gift of giving, the only way we entrepreneurs should think rather than thinking about our own selfish ambitions. What are your ambitions to start a company for? To make meaning and purpose in others lives? or to get rich? A question that we never ask ourselves before its to late, but hopefully along the journey we truly find out that meaning and purpose triumph all riches in money and things!
