What is LEADERSHIP?

At it’s most basic level, leadership is when a person/leader knows and puts into action the following 3 principles (2 out of 3 won’t do). This applies to your life as a whole, your family, your trip, your job, and every task/project you undertake… 

A leader MUST…

1. Know where they are going…  I call this the PURPOSE principle –
If you don’t have a purpose, or a known final destination, you will be drifting aimlessly and won’t ever achieve the reason you exist.  One must know what they are trying to accomplish.  God put you on earth on purpose for a purpose.  What is it?  Now do it.

2. Know how to get there… I call this the PLAN principle –
If you don’t have a plan, then your next step is unknown.  We must have a step by step plan if we hope to accomplish something of significance.  If your plan doesn’t have depth, which requires many steps, then your plan is too small!  There is a fine line between a realistic plan and a plan that requires God showing up.  Our plan should be influenced by both the natural and supernatural world.

3. Know who is following… I call this the PEOPLE principle -
If no one is following, you are just out taking a walk! Don’t only look ahead, or at yourself, but you must also concurrently look behind to make sure people are coming with you. We are to lead people (families, coworkers, neighbors, etc). 

For believers… We carry great news, the Gospel, which has the power to change both present realities and eternal destinies.  Don’t waste your life.   If we don’t know where we are going, how to get there, and who is is following, we aren’t accomplishing our God given purpose of presenting all men as perfect in Christ (Colossians 1:28-29)…
