Don’t waste time being drawn into tabloid triviality disguised as pertinent issues. Focus on the issues, goals, and strategy laid out to get there. Speak about what matters. What you address, your words give power to. There are a lot of dead things now alive because someone chose to waste their time and give power to it.
Every challenge doesn’t need debated. A lion doesn’t run around every time a dog barks. Choose your battles wisely and chart your own course not letting the media set your agenda.
Always be humble but don’t mistake that for weakness. Humility is your greatest asset as a leader. The greater the pressure, the greater God’s strength will be demonstrated. God’s power flourishes in the garden of humility producing a fruit of lasting stability.
Be diligent and vigilant. Power-hungry wolves circle the seats of power in a never ending parade. Some people come into your life as a Blessing and others come into your life as a Lesson. Learn to discern the difference.
Give– but don’t allow yourself to be used.
Love– but don’t let your heart be abused.
Trust– but don’t be naïve.
Listen to others– But don’t lose your own voice
