All leaders face problems. Problems are not new, but how we deal with them makes a major difference.
James Merritt writes about the necessity of patience in leadership. He wrote, “Problems are not meant to defeat you, depress you, or discourage you. God meant them to develop you.”
If we possessed a more developmental mindset toward problems, we would probably experience an entirely different attitude when they occur.
When problems occur, regardless of the source of the problem, we have an opportunity to evaluate our approach.
The demonstration of patience in these moments may just give us an opportunity to experience divine development.
