Do You Need To Be Saved From Success?

I’ve recently begun pondering what success looks like again. Is it selling a million copies of Reel Leadership? Is it reaching 10 million people with my message on leadership? Or is it something else?

These thoughts have been running through my mind. They’re drawing me back to new questions all the time.

They’ve gone from the questions I only asked at the opening of this article to new questions…

How many lives have I impacted? Would I be okay with truly impacting only one life? Where does my energy need to be focused to be most effective? What does effectiveness really look like?

I don’t know. I really don’t. But I think I need to be saved from my idea of success. You need to as well.

5 Things Every Leader Should Hope For

Leaders, by the nature of their role, need to be hopeful people. They are, after all, casting a new vision for their followers.

Why shouldn’t they be hopeful for what’s to come?

Through the trials of leadership, it’s easy to get lost on the trail. Our hope wanes. We lose our way.

This is why it’s crucial leaders keep their eyes open to the hopeful future ahead.

If you’re one of those lost leaders, see if you can regain your vision by looking for hope in these 5 areas.

1. Faithful followers: You can’t lead if no one is following. Even when people are following you, it can be a difficult path to walk if those followers aren’t faithful.

Leading well results in followers who are true to you. They’ll follow you through thick and thin. Be hopeful you will one day have people who will support your dream and vision as a leader.
