(Not) Smooth SailingFeb 28, 2021
Your leadership journey won’t always be smooth sailing.
💥 One of your followers will let you down.
💥 One of your peers will question your motives.
💥 After a period of progress, you’ll have a setback.
Don’t let these frustrations discourage you from your call to lead.
💣 What challenging thoughts, feelings, situations, and experiences am I willing to endure as I lead?
💪 How will these experiences make me a better leader for having endured them?
As I look back, my proudest moments and greatest achievements have been the product of lengthy stretches of discomfort.
Nothing of worth is given freely—you have to be prepared to endure a bit of hardship.
When we recognize what we’re prepared to give, we put ourselves in the best position to realize our full potential.
