Being a leader, you’re often in the spotlight. You’ve got people watching you from every which way.

Your team is looking to you for leadership advice. The outside world is looking to see if you live up to the standards of a leader. Your family is conscious of how you lead them.

You can begin feeling like you’re a leader and nothing else.

But that’s not the truth. Our lives are compromised of so much more than our position as a leader.

You Are More Than A Leader


While the majority of your day to day duties may deal with leadership duties, you know deep down you’ve got more to offer the world. Heck, you want more from the world than to only lead.

We were created with desires. Desires to:

Have fun

Our pursuit of growth shouldn’t end when we graduate high school or college. Nor should it end when we are bestowed with the title of leadership.

No, leaders must be intentional about their growth.

Young leaders may wonder what can they do to continue their growth. They’ve already taken the courses that were required. They’ve pursued higher education. They’ve gone to training.

Truth be told, there’s a lot we can do to continue to grow. In this post you’ll discover 6 ways leaders can continue growing.

How To Continue Growing

Fill The Void

September 26, 2012 — 19 Comments

Vacuums, the absence of matter not the household appliance, are an amazing phenomenon.

A vacuum is a space where there is no matter. On Earth, nature doesn’t like a vacuum. So outside pressure will try to push particles into the vacuum to fill the empty space inside of the vacuum.

Interesting, huh?

Our lives our like a vacuum.

We’ll clear out a couple of bad habits. We’ll feel good about ourselves. We’ll think we’re doing great.

Except we forgot to fill the empty space created by ridding ourselves of the bad habits.

There will be a void left in our lives. An empty space longing to be filled. And it will find something to fill itself with.

We must fill that void or the bad habits will come back with a vengeance.
