Life is filled with events. These events can be good or bad. The perspective of one person toward an event may not be the same as another person facing a similar event. The difference is often affiliated with someone’s attitude and worldview.
Robert Tew said, “It doesn’t matter what happens to you. What matters is, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to complain and shrink or are you going to step into your greatness?”
As he expresses, what happens is not the issue, but what we do about it generally defines who we are as leaders.
One choice is easy: complain and shrink. However, the results hinder our influence and the development of leadership character.
The option of stepping into leadership motivates us to see beyond the present and consider the power of changing lives: ours and those who follow.
When various events enter our daily walk through life, let us consider how the choices we make impact our own leadership development and that of others.
