If there is one component needed to characterize a leader, it is desire. Leadership requires the desire to lead, to develop the character necessary to lead.
We tend to do what we want to do. When that desire exists, nothing stands in the way. When we want to do something, we will find a way.
The opposite is also true. When we do not want to do something, it does not matter the consequence(s), or the reward(s), we will not do it.
When we desire to lead as God planned, nothing will stand in the way of our achieving His plan.
