Successful leadership completely depends on what you’re seeing and hearing.
If you look around and see only obstacles, you’ll always hesitate and be a step behind where you could be. But if you look and see endless opportunities, you’ll be able to leap and innovate and lead.
If you listen to God’s vision for your life, you’ll be free to take risks and chase your calling. But listen to rumors, doubts and fears and you’ll freeze and shrink back into the comfort of where you’ve already been.
Watch for opportunities, listen for vision and ignore the rest.
