“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then you are a leader.” John Quincy Adams
Four areas are emphasized in this quote. Dreaming, learning, doing and becoming more are a significant part of our role as leaders.
However, two key words in this quote become foundational to our spiritual leadership.
Actions: Nothing is more important to our leadership than our actions. It cannot be overstated that a leaders’ actions must measure up to what is said and believed.
Inspire: Inspiration is a powerful thought. To inspire is to produce or arouse a thought or feeling. Leaders must inspire, i.e. arouse, confidence in others.
When a leaders actions inspire confidence in others to dream, learn, do and become more, there is power to change the world.
This is the purpose of spiritual leadership. Let us arise to the task.
