Life is hard. As much as we want to live hope-filled lives, these difficulties often keep us stuck in place while the world around us falls apart. We want to move forward, but we just don't know how.
But moving forward really isn't that complicated. It is the process of putting one foot in front of the other, one day at a time. It is understanding that as bad as things seem right now, the alternative to pushing forward is death. Not physical death. But relational, emotional, or spiritual.
Through the pages of this book Jeremy Stalnecker, using the experiences of war, illustrates how to move forward when we don't know what to do. There is hope even in the most hopeless situation for those that are willing to March when it would be easier to Die! It's time to stop looking back, stop making excuses and stop allowing yourself to remain stuck. It's time to take the next step!
Instead of wading through the mountain of valid research compiled on Post Traumatic Stress, the answer is found in understanding how we were created. There is hope and freedom on the other side of trauma, but not until you understand some essential truths that will make that freedom possible.
You see, our brains and bodies are brilliantly designed to respond normally to the abnormal events of trauma, in order to survive and protect ourselves… that is not a disorder, but a blessing to embrace and be thankful for.
Join us as we embark on this journey to discover The Truth About PTSD.
Leadership is often defined based on life experience, background, education, or culture. What looks like leadership to one may look like dictatorship to another. Some would say that leaders are always “type A,” while others believe in a passive approach. In many ways, this is why learning to lead or regaining the ability to lead is so difficult. We are trying to hit a target that we can name but cannot see. Leadership by Design was written to challenge definitions of leadership that are tied to a job description or personality type but miss the philosophy that moves the leader forward when those things change. We don’t do leadership; we are leaders! We were created to make a difference in the lives of those around us regardless of occupation or temperament by living to take them from where they are to where they need to be. If you are not leading according to your unique talents, abilities, and opportunities, you are not living the life that you were created to live. It’s time to get up and begin moving forward.
