Leadership is the true essence of all human beings, but here’s the paradox of leadership in the Kingdom of God: Every human being was created to be a leader, but not everyone becomes the leader God created them to be. Regardless of whether you manifest it or not, God’s purpose for your life includes becoming the leader God created you to be.
Leadership is not something you do; it’s something you become. Assess your talents, gifts, skills, and abilities; then develop and refine them so you can become excellent at what God has called you to do. Personal growth is best summed up in the phrase, “You were born to lead, but you must become a leader.”
The attitude of a Kingdom leader is this: I’m part of something bigger than myself, and because the world is filled with people, I must take a genuine interest in other people. This attitude is not one of deprivation, but one of service. It’s not what do I have to give up, it’s how many people can I influence in a positive way. Leadership success comes from initiating relationships with the right people, and then strengthening those relationships by using good people skills. If you want to be a great leader, you must learn how to be successful in relationships.
