Simple and Selfless

9-11 serves as a powerful reminder in the history of our nation. The closer people are to the individuals who lost their lives that day, the stronger the remembrance.

We are reminded of the incredible benevolent, servant, and sacrificial leadership demonstrated surrounding that event.

Even though we may feel it to be a lesser comparison, we need to note that it is not always about heroic levels of leadership that are remembered in the highlight reels of life.

Perhaps the greatest mark left on the world is the simple and selfless acts done on a daily basis that touch the lives of those in need.

Four Steps

Reflection, remembrance, consideration, and gratitude are words all leaders should know.

1) Now is the best opportunity to reflect on how we started, where we are now, and what steps brought us here.

2) While reflecting on our accomplishments, remember that God placed us in this position at this time. Let us be faithful.

3) We need to consider the lessons learned. We should also consider those involved in helping us reach this point.

4) Of all the steps, none holds more significance than gratitude. We need a thankful heart that expresses an understanding that where we are is because God has placed us here. Let us honor Him!
