One of the most significant words in the leadership vocabulary is “possibility.” Words such as potential, feasibility, and probability are involved in guiding our understanding of possibilities.
Possibilities are directly linked to the application of opportunities. Opportunities are circumstances presenting possibilities. If we are unable to see the possibilities we never take advantage of the opportunities.
Couple this with the idea that God has the power to do far beyond all we ask or think according to the power that works within us (Ep. 3:20).
God’s power, presence, and knowledge should help us recognize that He will provide numerous opportunities, but we need to look for the possibilities.
Consider the goals we have set: are they feasible, what are the probabilities, and do we know the potential that exists?
The answer to these questions can make the difference in not only seeing the possibilities, but also taking advantage of the opportunities.
This ties directly to the vision needed by leaders for the direction of the work and the involvement of those who follow.
Lead with the possibilities in view.
