Leadership is not always pretty. I watch how the movies serve up the hero; smooth, calm and, collective. Calling the shots like a boss.
It makes me want to be like that leader or that coach we see in the movies. I watched the movie Remember the Titans and how during one part of the movie the coach was breaking the rest of the team down. My friend says “ man, I could totally do that!!” I simply chuckled, as I thought to myself.
Because leaders in leadership make it look easy. We look to them and believe they are larger than life. We assume no evil befalls them . they don’t have craziness going on in their life.
In reality, it is totally different. Leaders are actively working when others are just getting to work. Leaders are those who bring a solution to the complaint they may have.
But leaders are human. They endure family issues, not a one of them are perfect. But leaders are tough. They push when others quit. They thrive when others die off because they have “grit” and sheer will.
Leaders purpose their days, and not allow their days to rule them. They fight to complete priorities because leaders are finishers.
If you want to lead, I just gave you some good guidance to start.
Here is the secret, you can already do this stuff. You might have to square up with the reflection in the mirror and must choose to be the leader you desire to be.
I bet you have some questions and that is great, I want you to have ask questions. How do you lead where you are? What if no one is following you? What would Jesus do, lol. I hope we can discover together what it takes to lead from a biblical perspective. share you questions. what does leadership look like to you?
So let’s pack our bags and go on this trip..
