You were born to lead – settle for nothing less. Your generation and your world await your manifestation. Do it for the unborn generations who are meant to build on the foundation of your success as a leader. Remember, the difference between a follower and a leader is attitude. We must possess the attitude of leadership. We must think, talk, walk, dress, act, respond, decide, plan, work, relate, and leave like leaders. You have the leadership spirit; now you need the attitude of leadership.
You must cultivate the same attitude that eighty-five year old Caleb had. Forty-five years earlier, he had been one of the two men, among the ten spies sent to scout out the land, who believed that he Israelites could defeat their enemies and enter the Promised Land. When the Israelites finally enter in and the land was being distributed, he could have chosen the early life in the plains, but he chose the heights of the mountains. In addition, he chose the very land of the descendants of Anak, of whom the other ten spies had said, “We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”
For forty, as the Israelites wondered in the desert, Caleb’s spirit of leadership was so strong that he apparently planned to take on the toughest and most fearful adversaries in the land once he had the opportunity. It was his attitude that made the difference. Make it yours too.
