What is essential and what is not? Spiritually speaking, there are many answers: Here are four.
1) Character: General Schwarzkopf said, “Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without strategy.”
2) Passion: It’s about sacrifice. Knowing what we are willing to give up is essential to our leadership.
3) Vision: Vision is about seeing into the future. Faith is essential to the vision of spiritual leadership.
4) Goals: David Schwartz said, “Goals are as essential to success as air is to life.” Goals are the essential fuel for leading.
These are only four areas that are essential to our leadership.
