Are you willing to let go of that which is good so you can reach forward to that which is genuinely the best? We're not talking about making compromises; This is about prioritizing the things that will help you realize your full potential as a leader. Here are the first five of ten tradeoffs worth making if you're serious about fulfilling the purpose God has for your life:
- Affirmation for Accomplishment
- Security for Significance
- Financial Gain for Future Potential
- Immediate Pleasure for Personal growth
- Exploration for Focus
The greatest leaders in history were not great because of what they owned or earned, but because of what they gave their lives to accomplish.
Things begin to happen when we make the choice to grow. It’s a universal dynamic. Choosing to pursue the next level of your calling will require sacrifice, but the results are always worth it.
