Apathy

Human beings,
by changing the inner attitudes
of their minds,
can change the outer aspects
of their lives.

– William James

 

I just read a post by Mac Lake titled When Leaders Fall into Maintenance Mode. This reminded me of some leaders I have met recently who have given up on the church and on themselves.

Each of us is called to lead from where we are – now. Each of us is called to give God our best – regardless of the situation.

Some leaders give up and fall into maintenance mode because of the situation they find themselves in. Our vision comes from God, so it is our duty and delight to continue to grow as leaders, and be the champion for the vision God has given us.

Create a solid foundation by writing down your goals and sharing those goals. We are in a community of faith, so share with those in the community. Enthusiasm and motivation are both given and received by leaders.

What will you do today to be sure that you are motivated?

What will you do today to be sure that those you lead have a chance to be motivated? – by you?

As Paul said, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” – Romans 12:2

How will you transform yourself and those whom you lead today?
