Lead Yourself Well – Part 1

To lead yourself well, you have to be intentional—you have to do something.

All self-leaders do five things: 

1. Begin with the end in mind. Self-leaders have a vision for the kind of people they want to be and they pursue that vision. 

2. Actively learn. Self-leaders recognize that they’re responsible for their spiritual development. They explore and discover. They’re curious. 

3. Practice rest. Self-leaders make time to reflect and recharge. They maintain a sustainable pace. 

4. Pursue health. Self-leaders take the necessary steps to become or remain physically, emotionally, and relationally healthy. 

5. Lead from the inside out. Self-leaders recognize they can never rise above the limits of their own characters. They cultivate integrity and moral authority by maintaining harmony between what they say and how they live.

About Kevin Beers

Why do I blog? - Because I love my church but can’t personally connect to everyone who calls me ‘pastor’. The people of The Wesleyan Church of Hamburg deserve everything I’ve got. This is one more way to give it. - Because ministry, life and leadership are better when learning is shared. - Because I’d rather offer my journey than just give my conclusions. - Because I need to practice being generous, not just with my money, but with my heart, too. - Because the Church/Kingdom/World is better when many voices are shaping the conversation it is having.
