I asked each of these leaders a single question about healthy leadership:

What healthy habits do you attribute to your success as a leader?

Their answers fell into 3 categories: Physical health, mental health, and spiritual health. These 3 areas of health are critical to your success and I’m glad to see a recurring theme among the answers.

I’m thankful to each of the over 50 leaders that responded and were willing to be a part of this expert roundup. I believe their insights into healthy habits of leaders will inspire you to find your own.

Why You Should Embrace Resistance as a Challenge

I’ve lately fallen in love with the story of Gideon.

At face value, it seems like a miracle of God that a small troop of Israelites defeated an overwhelming enemy. It appears to be a story of God testing Gideon’s trust in Him. But when you look deeper, it shows an incredibly creative God who turns resistance into an opportunity.

I’m sure you’re familiar with the story. Midianites invaded the territory and oppressed the Israelites. God called Gideon to defeat them, even though there weren’t nearly enough men to combat the enemy army. If that wasn’t enough of an obstacle, God calls Gideon to shrink the size of his army down to only 300 men. 300 against 135,000!

But God had a creative solution to what seemed like an impossible amount of resistance.
