You must fail in order to grow. Embrace the pain and learn from it ...

Message of Leadership ... and other writings - Daniel Southern 11/09/2017

We don’t really concentrate on it all the time, but we have a tremendous impact on our children. We teach them how to think and act and they will be like us in many ways. Be careful what you pass on to them ... and bathe it all in prayer.


Leadership is the art of going first. Do you ever think about who is watching and maybe imitating you?


A true leader overcomes his own selfish impulses to become a person of inner character who leads by example.


There is more than one way to skin a rabbit and an effective leader knows how to use that to his advantage.


A leader has the ability to step back from the fray of life and analyze a situation from the other person's perspective.


I enjoy watching these shows on TV where people live off the land in remote places like Alaska. But I can't help but wonder why anyone just lives for themself with no desire to help or impact other people.


2 ways to grow - mentor someone or be mentored. Both are important for every leader. Knowledge and wisdom flow both ways.


Setting realistic expectations is one of a leader's most important responsibilities.


Train others to carry your vision forward.


Getting what you want is not necessarily a good definition of success.


It's important to do things of eternal consequence. So how do we accomplish that when so much of what we do seems routine and inconsequential? My solution is to carve out time each day to do that which will make a difference... spend time with God in prayer & the Word... take on kingdom projects... share the Gospel... help others... encourage someone... It adds up over time. God is keeping score.

Courage is the lynchpin of all other leadership values. For without courage--emotional, mental, physical and spiritual--people in general too often make less than their best decisions. It takes courage to do the right thing.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." ~ Sir Winston Churchill

And effective leader doesn't tell other people everything that crosses his mind, but is selective about what he communicates.

A leader does not always realize the important role they play in the lives of others. Look around... someone is taking their cues from you and maybe you never realized it.
