Leadership is not an easy road, but shortcuts never serve you well.
Under pressure, we are all tempted to take the more comfortable and familiar path, but the results you want come from an approach that includes sacrifice.
Under pressure it’s easy to choose:
- Authority over Humility
- Popularity over Obscurity
- Security over Unfamiliarity
It’s natural to prefer going up rather than giving up. The basic drive in a leader wants more for the organization, greater territory, and increasing results. This leadership drive to grow and expand is a good thing because it’s connected to reaching more people with the good news of Jesus Christ. But all that can get blurry when sacrifice is removed from the process of success.
