I am taking time out here to write about what it means to lead. This includes what leading like Jesus means and what leading, in general, is all about.
Leading like Jesus is the demonstration of true servant leadership. He was a great and kind master, he accomplished many wonders and greatness in his lifetime. He came as a man to show us it is possible for us to live the way he did. He was not a tyrant leader that coerced people into doing things, rather he was an exemplary model of the message he was trying to pass across and people were drawn to him because of this. Incorporating Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges book of Lead Like Jesus: this includes four attributes Jesus displayed “heart, head, habit and hands” of a servant leader. It is a recommended must read.
My Excerpt on What It Takes To Lead
- A clear sense of direction,
- Living life differently
- Understanding your true purpose,
- Ability and caring to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
To be a leader is life’s journey of sojourning through the phase of one’s life as well as the life of others. It is a clear sense of guidance and direction with how one balances aspects of their daily living and life’s work.
Each one of us is made for very special things in this life and that is why we have been given so much that we can succeed and we all can rise to the capacity of leadership if we want and choose to. I know in my heart deeply everyone can accomplish great things. They just have to set their mind to it.
Nothing is impossible. When you are clear on what you want, you can get it. This is called strong vision and plan of action.
It is always important to stand out, be brave and be different.
It was the great William Shakespeare that said: “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
All my love,
