If we don’t plan our lives, someone else will plan it for us.
The best way to protect the future is to design it yourself
leadership: finding something worth doing by yourself. Be willing to go alone.
leaders give people’s lives meaning. People will follow you when they receive a sense of significance for their own life.
Leadership doesnt begin with people, it begins with you.
Everyone is a leader. Leadership begins with how you think.
You were created to lead and designed to dominate.
True leadership begins with discovering something about yourself.
Most of you are afraid of yourself because yourself does not agree with whom you have become.
Everyone is a leader in their area of functioning.
You become a leader when you realize, ‘They need me. The world needs me. ”
you are not an accident, you are an assignment.
leadership is important because:
- Nothing changes without leadership
- Nothing develops without someone taking leadership
- Nothing improves without leadership
- Nothing is corrected without leadership
- Nothing advances without leadership
- Nothing succeeds without leadership
- We are always being led by someone whether we think so or not.
When does a person become a leader?
Leadership is born when toleration ends. Whatever you tolerate you will never change.
Difference between a manager and a leader:
A manager maintains things a leader changes everything
A manager follows policy, a leader creates policy
managers focus on the bottom line, leaders focus on the horizon…
managers focus on doing the things right, leaders on doing the right thing
If you are led by a manager, you will never grow.
Leaders give managers work to do.
Don’t die the way you are, don’t give them the privilege of firing you; don’t let people terminate what you call a career.
Sheep is the only animal in the world without a leader.
An army of sheep led by a lion will defeat an army of lions led by a sheep.
- Leadership determines the quality of the followers. A good leader can transform frightened people into fearless people; cowards into giants.
- leadership determines the mentality of followers
leadership determines the morality of followers, and morale.
- Leadership determines the attitude of followers
- Leadership determines the commitment of followers
- Leadership determines the destiny/destination of followers.
“If the blind lead the blind both will fall into the ditch. “
You are exactly where someone led you. If you don’t like where you are right now, reconsider changing leadership.
Dont be impressed with power or position; ask the question, where are we going? what’s the destination?
Vision is more important than leadership.
Vision is what creates a leader. You see a future that is better than the present.
God identifies himself with the lion and the eagle.
Study the lion.
The lion is not the tallest nor the biggest, not the most intelligent, yet he is the leader. There is hope for you!
Attitude. Attitude comes from belief which produces confidence.
The lion believes it can eat an elephant, and it goes for it. His attitude reduces the elephant to a meal.
Leadership is 80% attitude and 20% skill, exactly why skillful people work for those with the right attitude.
When you look at your problems, how do you respond to them?
thinking controls actions.
- A leader is fearless because of knowledge. There is something the leader knows that makes him fearless.
Life is simply what you believe it is.
you will never become successful from your job. Your job – what you’re paid to to do; work – what you’re called to do.
job – skill, work – your gift.
Deploy yourself, no more economic crisis for you!
your attitude creates your atmosphere. Change your attitude, change your life.
Your belief system is the source of your attitude.
Change the way you think!
philosophy is a product of your ideas
Deliverance is when you leave Egypt. Freedom is when Egypt leaves you.
Your mentality is more important than your locality
How do you move from the floor with roaches to being called by heads of states to speak to their entire government?
It began with these words,
“Let us make man in our own image (characteristics)”
I have God’s character!
The qualities of God is in you! You have God’s image.
All true leaders have no fear for death. As a matter of fact, they have an affair with death.
God created you for dominion, not worship! Not to be a bishop.
If God made you leader, master, governor, controller, then there must be the ability to do it.
Leadership in God’s mind is not about people, it is about resources.
Whatever a manufacturer demands from a product, he builds into the product.
What he calls for, he provides for
What he expects from something, he injects into it
whatever purpose God gave for something, he builds into it
When I discovered the purpose for creation, I discovered my ability.
Fishes do not attend swimming lessons.
birds deploy themselves and they fly.
Break free from the culture. Deploy yourself!
Your potential is determined by your purpose. Big purpose, big potential .
They build a car which can go 190/hr but there is a sign that says 50mph. They keep limiting you, putting up signs.
Society says you are an employee, God says you are a leader.
Go for it! Break that barrier. You are going too slow. You can do better than that. You are a leader.
Think about your limitations and go past them.
The creator is the only manufacturer who hides a man inside a boy; he hides a woman inside a girl. I wonder who is trapped in you. Would we ever meet you or the graveyard will get it.
You were born to lead but you must become a leader.
A seed is a tree, but it must become a tree.
Lets see who you really are before you leave us. Show yourself. Release yourself. It is not about beating people. Great leaders compete with themselves
Your Leadership Gift
- I was not created to lead people
- I was created to lead in my area of gifting.
- True leadership is born when my gift is discovered and served to the world.
- The value in each human is the gift they were born to deliver to humanity.
Leaders don’t seek followers, followers are attracted to leaders, just as you are attracted to a tree’s fruit. The tree does not bring its fruit to you, you go for it.
No one is following you yet because you’re not manifesting your gifts.
Find your gift. If you find your gift, then you find you and then they pay you for it.
They will follow you for your gift which you are supposed to give to humanity.
One of the greatest leadership quotes is this, “For I did not come to be served, but to serve myself as a ransom for many. “
The greatest leadership in the world is to become a servant. It doesn’t mean you’re a slave to people; you’re a slave to your gift. You serve it. But if you can’t find it, you can’t serve it, therefore you become employed.
Go become great leaders!
