Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and again and bring their friend.
– Walt Disney
Learning to lead well is having strength and giving that strength to others. Leaders don’t face others to make them stronger, but rather help them to be able to stand on their own.
God has given us an assignment to complete here on earth. You need to put in the hard work, even when no one is looking.
Learn to hold yourself to a higher standard. Never, never give up, but rather persevere. The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude, be kind, but not lazy, be humble, but not timid, being proud, but not arrogant. They are defined by their inner strengths and convictions, not the outer portrayal of who they are. Your character will determine your level of leadership and your legacy. Sometimes we need to go down the untravelled path. Being bold in the face of adversity will help give your team courage. For the point of leading is not to cross the finish line first; but rather to take people across the finish line with you.
We have a higher calling as Christians. It is a humble calling, but it is nonetheless a high calling. Jesus emphasizes again. “Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.” Serving leads to greatness. We just continue to do our job and even beyond our call of duty. We also help others excel. When we serve and lead, we lift others up. Their success is ours also.
“Well done, my good servant”, his master replied. “Because you have been trustworthy in a very little matter, I will make you in charge of ten cities.”
