Dont’ Forget To Fill Both Gas Tanks

Gas tanks are wonderful things. They hold the fuel we need to drive our cars to the places we need to be.

Your car probably has one gas tank. Did you know that you have two gas tanks you have to watch the gas gauge for?

It’s true. In a recent interview Nick Vujicic mentioned this principle.

I really liked this idea and wanted to share it with you. It’s an area leaders really need to be cognizant of.

Your First Gas Tank

The first tank you need to be aware of is one you use to feed your followers.

This one is used to give of ourselves to those that we serve. We’re pouring our time and energy into giving them the information and leadership they deserve.

It’s spending time one on one with individual team members. Encouraging them. Mentoring and giving growth.
