Life-changing Perspective…

Events experienced in life can be categorized as good or bad. It’s all about perspective, and perspectives vary from one individual to another.

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?”

One choice seems easy enough, complain and shrink. This choice, however, hinders our influence and character development.

Stepping into greatness motivates us to see beyond the present circumstance and consider the power of changing lives, including our own.

Leadership Greatness…

Leaders often attempt to put greatness into others. Somehow, they fall prey to the mindset that if they can put greatness into others, they will be great.

John Buchan said, “The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.”

We all need to learn this lesson; greatness is already in each and every person. Our task is to elicit what is already there.

Leaders must work to draw out and use the greatness that exists in each person, helping them reach their potential by implementing their own deep seated greatness.

This is leadership!

Greatness in Service…

Leaders face many challenges. One of the greatest is learning that we are all leaders. With this in mind, how should we lead?

Dale Archer said, “When you’re always trying to conform to the norm, you lose your uniqueness, which can be the foundation for your greatness.”

We lead because people need hope. We lead because salvation is at stake. We lead because God needs leaders. We lead because it makes a difference.

Since this is true, let us not conform to how the world sees leadership. Let us rise up and establish a foundation of greatness, leading as the servants God has called us to be in His kingdom.
