Are you a leader? If not, why not? A leader knows the way. He or she only knows the way that is right for them. Because most of society lacks confidence, they are constantly looking for someone to follow. Most people are lost. They have not learned to, “PAY ATTENTION!” There is only God and not God in all the universe. Love is God and fear is not God. This is a simple determination of right or wrong. This is known as conscience and once people reattach themselves to their conscience their journey will gain understanding.
I start my leadership as accepting myself as a one-of-a-kind individual. I am not a copy. If I am a copy, I am a forgery. I love what God has designed in me. I have seen myself as strengths and weaknesses my whole life. Now I know I am both a whole and a piece. God is not all or nothing; God is all and nothing. I cannot know the part of me that is human if I don’t look at my whole and I cannot see my spiritual aspect if I don’t see myself as a piece. It takes discipline to stay focused in the NOW to see my total self.
Firstly I must find confidence or faith by allowing God to lead me. I desperately seek guidance on how to develop myself from my connection with God. In that connection I have found that in my strengths I find my leadership and in my weakness I find my humility. I cannot lead if I cannot follow as I need to try and meet the needs of my followers. I am in equal need of humility if I am to lead and I am in dire need of confidence if I am to lead. I find both my humility and confidence in God.
Secondly I lead my family. I am a male therefore I am primarily right soul. I am intellectual and have limited surface emotion. I bestow upon my family rational thought and look to them for my lack of emotion. My family is deeply moved when I display emotion because they know how deeply I have been touched. Women are more left soul, or emotional, and need logic to balance them out. Now please understand that I am talking in generalities and some men are right soul and some women are left soul.
Thirdly I have a much larger family called the planet. My family tree is from leaf to root; God, me, family, community, county, state, country, planet and God again (dust to dust). It is imperative that I bestow and acceptance upon each individual in my life the same free will that God has bestowed upon me. There are behaviors in society I personally don’t believe in but I know it is their cross to bear and not mine. I certainly have the right to have an opinion but not the right to force the world to live in the narrow mind I have created by my judgment. If I am diligent in my honoring God by my behavior I should see a long line beside me as that is how I choose to lead. And as always remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
