There are so many that carry a title before their name. There are those who believe that the title makes them who they are. However, we have seen many people who have been placed in prominent positions with impressive titles yet have failed miserably because they have not understood that real leadership is manifested in performance and results, not just in a label. Remember this: True leadership goes far beyond the mechanics of most of the approaches that pervade our leadership programs in this day's society. It has more to do with discovering a sense of meaning and significance in this life. This distinction separates the leadership quality of passion from the hunger or lust for power. Once again, true leaders do not seek power but are driven by a passion to achieve a noble cause. Two great leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, in the midst of strong opposition, stood by their principles regardless of what their environment encouraged. What fueled their action? Purpose and Passion. A true leader takes no thought for their lives. Deep inside each of us is a spirit with a big dream struggling to be free from the limitations of our past experiences, present circumstances and self-imposed doubts. As a leader, you have to learn to totally trust the King
"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass".
Your beliefs are a product of your thoughts. Your thoughts create your beliefs. Your beliefs create your convictions. Your convictions create your attitude. Your attitude controls your perceptions, and your perceptions dictate your behavior. All of that is the result of what you think your life should be. In order for you to be what the King commands, your mind needs to be renewed.
"...and do not be conformed to this word, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God".
Psalm 37:5 Romans 12:2
