14 Years Ago Today

14 Years Ago Today

Tracey Jones
The most important lesson these years has taught me is found in one of the Laws of Leadership in Life is TremendousGive to Get. In typical Charlie Tremendous fashion, these words are not what we’ve been taught. When we give to get something, we give with a motive. That's not giving; that's trading, and the problem with this perspective is that too often, 'it' gets you, not you get ‘it .' It's so easy in the economy of the world to make decisions based on ROI, the up-side, or future earnings. And I know as a business person, the importance of watching your resources. Stewardship is a Biblical principle. But the real leadership lesson behind Give to Get, according to Tremendous, is that we give regardless of whether we get anything back or not.
Cognitive Compound Interest

Cognitive Compound Interest

Tracey Jones
Compound interest isn’t just a principle about money; it's a tremendous growth activator for your mind! Like the financial growth described above, personal growth isn't linear; it's exponential. Just as interest makes interest, knowledge makes knowledge! So let’s get into the habit of monetizing our minds and building bucks with our brains.

If You Aren't Fired With Enthusiasm...

If You Aren't Fired With Enthusiasm...

Tracey Jones

As I step onto the stage or in front of the conference room, one theme rings through every one of my talks: You can't get it right without the right people. Whether you're a board member, a CEO, a manager, a spouse, or a solopreneur, this is the most important truth you must constantly keep at the forefront of your thoughts.

Peacemakers Are Tremendous

Peacemakers Are Tremendous

Tracey Jones
They say that anger is one letter away from danger, and that is true. I am involved in monthly book discussions through a tremendous prison ministry called LIFE, Inc., which stands for Leading Inmates in Faith and Education. The organization's leader, Marcia Sinkovitz, and I witness the price of letting emotions override minds and their consequences. Although these men accept God's gift of grace, own their actions, and seek restoration, the better path is to avoid poor emotional regulation altogether.
Suspicious Minds

Suspicious Minds

Tracey Jones
We've all been there. We have someone in our lives, and we become intertwined. Then, things start giving us pause and concern. We brush these feelings off or acquiesce when conflict arises. We keep coming back, hoping our suspicious minds will be wrong and all will be right. But that never happens. And there always comes a time when you've gone too far, and the only thing left to sell is your livelihood, life, or soul.
You can't fix stupid, but you can cure ignorance.

You can't fix stupid, but you can cure ignorance.

Tracey Jones
We live in a world full of stupidity. Stupid acts done by stupid people with stupid motives. Forrest Gump said it best, “Stupid is as stupid does.” People get very upset about this reality, but there's nothing we can do about it. What makes them stupid? Their willingness to be wise in their own eyes.

Seeing Stars: Stellar Fellers and Galactic Gals

Tracey Jones
When I was younger, I dreamed of being an astronaut launched on a one-way mission to explore the universe for the duration of my life. Now that I am older, I realize that the meaning of the universe is on terra firma, serving, loving, and sharing with my fellow human beings.

The Price of Doing the Right Thing

The Price of Doing the Right Thing

Tracey Jones

The type of leaders that I hang with are courageous. They have a keen sense of discernment, a compulsion to speak the truth professionally, and a sense of service over self. So why do these brave point people get vilified, sniped at, or even railroaded out of the very entity they are trying to help?

The Supreme Sacrifice

The Supreme Sacrifice

Tracey Jones
Today, we celebrate those men and women who paid the supreme sacrifice so that we, and countless others across the globe, can live in freedom. Freedom, life, and liberty and bought with a price. That price is courage, service, and sacrifice.
Can We Train Loyalty?

Can We Train Loyalty?

Tracey Jones
During one of my coaching calls last week, my entrepreneurial client remarked, "We can train for everything except loyalty." Wow, I had never heard this concept expressed that way. I immediately began to digest and unpack his words. Next, I asked several others, whose opinions I regularly seek out, what they thought. The consensus was that we should model and encourage loyalty, which is a given. But if a leader models and inspires loyalty, does that guarantee its reciprocation? Is loyalty a give-to-get kind of thing, or is it something that emerges internally regardless of the context?
Thank God It's Good Friday

Thank God It's Good Friday

Tracey Jones
Today is Friday, the most yearned for day of the week. We even have a unique acronym for it, TGIF. But while Fridays are tremendous, there is one Friday in particular that the other 51 cannot compete with. That is Good Friday. I always thought good was not good enough to describe what happened on the cross. But God declared His six days of creation week as good, so I guess if it's good enough for God, it's good enough for me!
Are You Reason-Able?

Are You Reason-Able?

Tracey Jones

To be reasonable, you must be able to reason. Our ability to reason is what makes humans humane. And when we abdicate our frontal lobe cortex’s responsibility to interact as adults with others, we devolve into our reptilian brains. And nothing good happens in the Jurassic Park parts of our perceptions.

Retention is Tremendous

Retention is Tremendous

Tracey Jones
“If a man doesn’t want to do something with his heart, there is no use paying him. If you don’t want this man because of what your agency can do for him with a tremendous spirit of obligation, I don’t believe you can bring him through. For the battles ahead, there has to be a bond, and usually, this will be mutual respect and appreciation between the manager and the agent.”
