Who is Moses?

Moses is a Hebrew prophet God used to free the Israelites from Egyptian slavery.

Saved by the basket from the Egyptian slaughter, he reached Pharaoh’s daughter, who took and adopted him as her son.

Growing up, Moses witnessed the struggles of his fellow Hebrews as slaves. Seeing one of them being beaten, he killed the Egyptian master. 

Feeling guilty, he fled to Midian. There, God spoke to him through a burning bush. He commissioned him to be the leader of the Israelites.

7 Amazing Things To Know About Moses’ Leadership 

He did not want to accept the call.

At first, Moses was very hesitant to carry on with God’s mission for him. Perhaps, it was a sign of humility.

Is This Normal?

Stepping into a new leadership position is a strange situation to many. You’ve worked so hard and so long under another person that to lead a team feels daunting. It feels unnormal.

Thoughts flood your mind. You begin to think about the choices you make. The decisions you have to decide.

After every decision, you wonder if the feeling in your gut is normal. 

The feelings of wonder, doubt, and exhilaration are something that everyone feels after making a major decision. IT IS NORMAL.

It’s also something that isn’t regularly talked about. Leaders love to share their wins, their confidence, their pride.

But their doubts? Their hesitations? Their questions? A lot of leaders are unwilling to share these.

We need to break this model of broken leadership. We need to make it normal to share our doubts, disbelief, and questions.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Nobody The Movie

A Reel Leadership Article

I slept on the recent movie Nobody (you can rent it on Amazon). After watching Nobody, I am regretting my choice. However, with a movie named Nobody, it is hard to fault someone for skipping over it.

Nobody is a great, smart revenge movie that brings more to the table than movies it has been compared to. You might hear Nobody compared to great movies such as John Wick (pick up my leadership lessons from John Wick on Amazon!), Die Hard, and Taken. While Nobody shares similarities with these great movies, Nobody stands alone in the way it delivers the tale. In the end, you’re left thinking “Man… they did something I wasn’t expecting. They did it with style and smarts.”

I hope you’ll go and see Nobody. I also hope you’ll enjoy what’s coming next.
