Leadership Question of the Week

“I have thoughts, but I am not my thoughts,
I will not be taken by my thoughts.
I have feelings, but I am not my feelings,
I will not be taken by my feelings.
I have a body, but I am not my body,
I will not be taken by my body.
I have a business, but I am not my business,
I will not be taken by my business.
Then, who am I?"
~ Michael Gerber

The Voice of Leadership

Where does a leader's vision come from? To find your vision, you must listen to:

The Inner Voice: Vision starts within. Do you know what your life's mission is? If what you're pursuing in life doesn't come from the depths of who you are and what you believe, you will not be able to accomplish it.

The Unhappy Voice: Where does inspiration for great ideas come from? From noticing what doesn't work. Discontent with the status quo is a great catalyst for vision. No great leader in history has fought to prevent change.

The Successful Voice: Nobody can accomplish great things alone. If you want to lead others to greatness, find a good mentor, an advisor who can help you sharpen your vision.

The Higher Voice: Don't let your vision be confined by your own limited capabilities. A truly valuable vision must have God in it. Only He knows what you're really capable of. Have you looked beyond yourself, even beyond your own lifetime as you've sought your vision? If not, you may be missing the true potential of your life.

From The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader by Dr. John Maxwell.
