There is a law in Leadership that says, “To do a high jump you need one person who can jump seven feet, not seven people who can jump one foot.”
Many tasks will never be achieved by throwing more people at the task. Jobs many times require talent not more people. EXCELLENCE IS IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT TALENT. Teams don’t win games with talent and without all of the team working together for one goal and one purpose. Talent that is fulfilled brings the greatest happiness that a person can know.
To develop talent it takes a lot of practice and a lot of hard work. However practice will not get you where you want to be unless it is the right practice. You can practice wrong and never will you gain talent.
People must have HEART, HOPE, AND A MIND THAT WANTS TO CHANGE
KEEP CHANGING AND GROWING!!!!
Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “In order to be a leader a man must have followers, And to have followers, a man must have their confidence. Hence the supreme quality for a leader is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a sections gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. If a man’s associates find him guilty of phoniness, if they find that he lacks forthright integrity, he will fail. His teachings and actions must square up with each other. The first great need, therefore is INTEGRITY AND HIGH PURPOSE.”
LIFE is always made up of choices. You make them every day. From the time you get up in the morning until you go to bed at night you need to make choices about everything. What clothes are you going to put on, what’s for breakfast, all kind of choices need to be made every day.
The younger you are the easier the choices are. Your mom asks you what color of bowl do you want to put your cereal in, red or blue? However as you get older the choices get harder. The people you hang with, the people you go on dates with. These choices are harder to make because they have consequences that go along with them. Dating the wrong person can have terrible results.
This is why it is so important to KNOW WHO YOU ARE, KNOW WHY YOU ARE ON PLANET EARTH, KNOW WHAT YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS. If you don’t know the answer to these question, you tend to wonder around with no purpose and no reason to make good quality CHOICES. Your choices in life are made with the understanding of who, what, and why you are here.
This is why people get in so much trouble with the law and with society. They have no vision for their life. The Bible says, “Where their is no VISION the people perish.” Thousands of people perish every day because of no VISION and becasue of this they make wrong and many time bad CHOICES IN THEIR LIFE.
Take a few days and think about, WHO YOU ARE, WHY YOU ARE HERE, AND WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE. If you do this you will make better CHOICES. The CHOICE IS ALWAYS UP TO YOU!!!
Your PURPOSE in life should be to reach your POTENTIAL in life! The big question in life is, “How do I do that?” Growth is always hard because it alway takes us out of our comfort zone. We tend to get very comfortable in the surroundings that we have created for ourselves. Changing those surroundings are CHANGE and CHANGE is uncomfortable and hard for most people. Here’s the KEY, reaching your potential is always worth the cost to get there. You always feel better about yourself and your life when you are growing and reaching your potential.
FOUR COMMON REASONS WHY PEOPLE DO NOT REACH THERE POTENTIAL:
1. You have been DISCOURAGED by other people.
2. You have been hindered by past DISAPOINTMENTS and HURTS.
3. Your have to face the REALITY of life on a daily basis.
4. You must realize that DISAPPOINTMENT is the GAP between EXPECTATION and REALITY.
It can be hard to OVERCOME these daily hindrances that try to knock you back into the same place you have been for years. You feel like you are stuck and there is no way out. DON’T YOU BELIEVE IT, THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT AND YOU CAN FIND IT IF YOU WANT TOO. MAKE IT HAPPEN!!
