Learning about leadership and knowing what it means to be a leader are two entirely different things. Learning is cognitive, while knowing is spiritual. You do not really change until you "know". Knowing changes your mind, which transforms your attitude, which--in turn--informs, directs and regulates your behavior.
There was a philosopher by the name of William James who wrote these words: "The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind. As you think, so shall you be". This was really a rediscovery, because, centuries earlier, another generation heard a similar truth from the great king known as King Solomon. For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
Remember, what an individual thinks in their heart is what will ultimately come out in their actions. However, the challenge is in knowing how to change one's attitude. Keep in mind, it's not an easy process. If attitude transformation were that simple, many of us would have changed a number of times during our lifetime. The Apostle Paul put it this way: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Transformation is a process of substituting current information with another, to the point that you become what you have been listening to or watching. Remember, be very careful of what you listen to or watch. Stay in God's Constitution. The King only preached and taught one message...the Kingdom.
From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.
