People Who Are Dangerous


There are those who enjoy tearing down someone else's character. They do not care who they hurt with their vicious attacks. There is no end to the rumors they start with false information.

Such individuals have no conscious; they feel no remorse for this wrongful behavior. But, one must know, what goes around, comes around. We reap what we sow.

The importance of Great leadership

Great leadership produces great success. Weak leadership produces failure.

 Be it in the home, work industry, or in government; it is necessary to have great leaders. Those in great leadership roles who perform at their highest level of potential, are also great followers.  And therefore, are willing to listen to others, with a caring attitude.

Great leaders help their followers by working with them to prevent problems from occurring. They are able to sit down with others, and discuss issues, and work together for solutions.

Weak leadership is oftentimes at fault for problems that occurs.

“Great men are strong men with great leadership qualities. They inspire others to be loving and caring like themselves. By this their character is made stronger.” 

We can find great leadership roles in both men and women who possess great characteristic traits.

Leadership Abuse of Power

The abuse of power is widely observed among those in leadership positions.

When bosses and managers as well as others in such positions, use their authority to gain something for their own personal purposes, rather than to focus on job related matters it is abuse of power and disrespect for the position they hold.                       

When such people in leadership positions make sexual advances toward others that is disrespectful.  And if a person in a leadership position terminate someone for refusing to become involved in a relationship with him or her, that is abuse of power and disrespectful for that individual’s rights.

A Personal Story:
I have experienced such treatment. 

A man I worked with went outside of his management position. He wanted to control my personal life.  He once told me he had made reservations for a hotel room for me out of town; 

Further stating, “Some of our business partners will be there too.” 

 I felt uncomfortable with the trip and hotel, and did not go. He was very angry with me for the decision I made, not to go out of town.

I knew this man was attracted to me. He kept arranging alone time for us, and I kept showing up with someone else, and he kept getting angry with me.  I did not share the feelings for him, that he had for me. 

Reasons: I love the man, I am married to. Also, character matters to me.

He was not going to give up, and I was not going to give in.  His attitude was making me very uncomfortable working with him.  I decided to move into a location several miles away from him. He became furious with me, and demanded that I return to his location, and followed up with a threat: 

“If you don’t, they can make it hard for you.” This was understood to mean those in leadership positions at the top in the company, would cause harm to me.

I refused to move back to his location. And he carried out his threat.  He and those he referred to terminated me; took away my clients, and stopped my financial income.

They forced me into financial distress. I could not pay my debts from business related financial responsibilities. This behavior is leadership abuse of power.

Books Matters!

  Books Provide Learning & Adventure                                                              .
Great writers experience their dreams. They put them on paper, where others can read about them.
A good book for me is being able to feel the emotions of the characters, and seeing the scene within my mind of every place and every act, and remembering them as if I had been there, as I go from each scene. Would I want to read that book again? Yes

Too much studying can be stressful. From all my years of experience in studying for several careers, I came up with some good advice for others. Study, but don't harm your health. A relaxed mind can absorb information with understanding; and the memory is greater than a stressed mind.

Achievers with Confidence

Believe that you are the best at what you do. And work hard on your abilities, to make it true.
In everything we do, in order to succeed, we must believe in ourselves; that we are highly motivated achievers.

Every path we take in life, we make the decision to pursue a dream. We travel the path of our dreams on a mental path of a narrow bridge; we must stay focused on our goal and not fear, lest we lose our balance of purpose and fall.

Chain-link Workforce

When people work together, much is accomplished.  In order to have a strong workforce the chain- link concept must be applied. In the connection of the linked chain, all of the links are going in the same direction.  
Leaders of a strong workforce are those headed in the same direction. They are firmly connected to each other. They are focused on working together for greater opportunities for their company. They are the ones who run successful businesses.

Working Together for a Better World

Violence is avoided, when we sit down with others, and discuss issues, and work together for solutions.

__Ellen J. Barrier

Discussions and debates to find solutions to stop violence or to control it have gone on for a great number of years, with no solution in sight.

If we look at our world today, and consider the violence that has made our world unsafe, we have to know it is due to generations who have failed to follow the teachings of moral values; Because of this failure, our world is in a crisis mode due to violence.

While the debate continues, our position is to educate the public. We are providing information on awareness, and having discussions on undesirable and unfavorable social issues. We are looking for solutions to create the spirits of harmony and peace to inspire goodness, and hope for a better future for World Peace.

"People who like their job will give it their best. 
Those who don't, show it by a poor performance."
__ Ellen J. Barrier

Some entrepreneurs have hindered themselves from pursuing greater opportunities for fear of failure.  Some concerns are based on past experiences that did not allow their business to grow and caused loss of income.  If we allow ourselves to repeat past mistakes, we didn’t learn anything of value to gain from them. We move forward by correcting our mistakes, and pursuing greater opportunities without fear of failure.

"Giving respect and receiving that same respect, is rewarding. It
establishes a peaceful relationship with others."
__ Ellen J. Barrier

Showing respect for others when they don’t agree with you, and during the times when you don’t agree with them as well, helps to avoid arguments that serve no good purpose.  This approach can lead to getting things accomplished peacefully. Therefore, work is done faster and smoother.

We are not going to always agree with each other, but we should have the dignity to always respect each other’s freedom of speech and of choice.  Democracy is practiced when we have respect for human rights.

Don't Get Stuck in Past-Time

"We can't go back into our past history and make changes. But we can begin this moment,
by setting goals and pursuing them for a better life with a greater purpose."
___ Ellen J. Barrier

Many of us have had negative experiences that left some unhappy memories that we chose to leave in the past and move forward. Some others have chosen to hang on to their negative experiences and unhappy memories. Living in past-time, does not allow for the possibility of moving forward. Instead, it hold those who live there as prisoners stuck in past-time.

We can avoid living in the past, by setting goals and pursuing them. 

This allows us to move forward into a positive future.

The Importance of Characteristic Traits

"Gentlemen show respect. They are caring, loving, and honest men."
__ Ellen J. Barrier

The positive features we see in individuals that makes them very special people are honesty, trustworthy, kindness, unselfishness, helping others, faithful in a relationship, respectful;  are the ideal qualities we each like to see in the other person’s character; but, what about our own character?

"The man who shows great respect for his mother and the women in his life; will have respect for those he meets."
 __ Ellen J. Barrier

Gentlemen respect the rights of others. They are honorable men.

I’m reminded of Job, who was condemned by those who came to visit him during his sickness, and accused him of being an unrighteous person. Therefore, they took it upon themselves to judge his character, and pass a death sentence upon him.  However, Job stood up to them and labeled them as being hypocrites.

Job allows his character to defend him:

Speaking to his accusers, Job stated, “Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears. Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified. Who is he that shall plead with me? For now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost”.

God himself said Job’s character was one that he judged to be perfect. Job didn’t think he was perfect, but he knew he always did the right thing by helping others and showing kindness, honesty, and respect. Therefore, he was able to say, “I know that I shall be justified.” He knew God wouldn’t find him guilty of being unrighteous. He let those who he called ‘hypocrites’ know, “He also shall be my salvation: for a hypocrite shall not come before him.”  And it was because of Job’s character, that God saved his life, and condemned those who falsely judged him. 

Job never gave up on God, despite his wife and others who suggested that he should. There are those who will say negative statements about praying and believing in Supernatural intervention. Those who believe in the power of God, as Job did, can also allow their character to defend them against whatever situation they encounter. Therefore, they succeed beyond expectation. 
Gentlemen respect the rights of others. They are honorable men.

Ellen J. Barrier / musician

My career in the music industry, began in my preteen years with my family performing in musicals in churches and at public events. We are a family of singers and musicians. I play piano and keyboard, along with writing and recording my songs and music, and Audio CD's.

"I Want to Feel Your Power Today" is a cry to God, when one is in desperate need to hear from him. I have been in desperate need to hear from God, many times. I was sitting at my keyboard, one day, and needing very much to hear from him. At the time I was singing this song, I was expressing my emotions to God. I had no words written. I wrote the words after recording the song, when I decided to share it public. Those who have heard this song, testifies that it "Relaxed and calmed" them. My call to God was heard. He is a great and awesome God!

The Price We Must Pay For Our Father's Sins by Ellen J. Barrier

  Selected for Best Screenplay 2013
 at The Beverly Hills Film Festival

Priscilla was a beautiful young woman who graduated from law school, with a promising future in the field of law. However, on the day she became Mrs. Jim Elliott, every one of her dreams were destroyed. Jim Elliott was not an ordinary man. He was possessed with demons, a man without a conscious. But, Priscilla didn't realize this horrible truth about her husband, until it was too late. Jim Elliott was the leader of a corrupt and evil organization, whose purpose was to torture and kill those who they wanted out of society.
 The price Priscilla and her family paid for the sins Jim Elliott committed in his organization, was “The Ultimate Price.”

“Death is The Inevitable Price We Must Pay,” said Antonio Elliott, the son of Jim Elliott.
Those who have read this novel, describes it as “A life story” that everyone should read.
