“The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.” William Arthur Ward
Learning, growing, changing, overcoming, caring, serving, daring, befriending and giving are the key elements to the activity of great leaders.
However, additional words found in the thought of the day are also significant to understanding our leadership: adventure, purpose, nature, challenge, essence, opportunity, secret, spice and beauty.
Both lists are connected and key to a life well lived. Also, each word is intricately positioned and lends to the development of godly leaders.
Consider how we might incorporate the development of each of these words one day or one week at time to lead as God intends us to lead.
