The leadership journey begins differently for every leader. Some are chosen. Others choose themselves.
One way or another, you’ve begun to lead. And that’s fantastic! We need more people willing to step up and lead.
An issue many young leaders face is the temptation to start big and lead big. Feelings of inadequacy arise once they realize their tribe isn’t as big as they’d hope.
I’ve been in this situation before. There’s been times when our youth group was frustratingly small. Subscribers to my blog grew stagnant and growth wasn’t happening.
Truth is, I was frustrated.
Why I Was Frustrated
My problem, along with many other young leaders, was I had a grand vision and expected it right now. Kind of like the Burger King slogan: Your Way, Right Away.
