A few things came up:
Cody Jefferson – a coach, mentor and communicator – takes us on his journey through life and how his ups and downs have given him strength to “embrace the lion” inside of him. Cody has taken his experiences in life to create a platform for others to be learn how to be the leader that walks with their team, not in front of them.
“You can’t pour from an empty cup….if you’re not really careful in managing your time, if you’re not really careful in managing your mental health what happens is you start to be come co-dependent on other people’s need for you”
“Rather than being the leader that comes across aggressive and a bit wounded, I’m going to walk with people.”
“We can only lead to our level of awareness…we can look at that objectively and we can look at itwith a humility saying ‘this is how I’ve always done it, but might there be a better way?’”
“I think of pain as: if we don’t transform it, we transmit it”
“Men aren’t finding fulfillment as a whole because we are being told to do and do and do, but we don’t know how to be. We weren’t ever really taught how to create emotional help for ourselves.”
“We have to look at what we can control…head, heart, health, and habits.”
“One of the things that I learned is so long as you’re willing to pour, people will always have their cup out. So you need to make sure that you are filling your cup first.”
“If I could leave you with one piece of insight, it’s that your purpose and your promise in this life is not an expectation to live up to, that it is a divine appointment that you get to live out of. And when we can reframe that and understand that everything is a gift and everything had to happen in the way that it happened in order to create the testimony that you have today and that failure is nothing more than feedback so long as we want to take the proper steps: forward in faith to find favor.”
