I love connecting with my Twitter connections offline. Occasionally, I will contact different ones and set up a conversation, especially if I want to learn more about their line of work. One of those people is a lady named Jan McDonald. She is a certified coach through the John Maxwell program. She is a dynamic lady with a powerful story.
In my conversation with her, she said something that has stuck to this day. I find myself thinking about this statement daily – “Most people don’t know how to lead themselves well.” They want to lead others, but they can’t lead themselves. It hit hard because I knew there were areas of my life where I was not leading myself well, and other areas of my life were paying for it.
How are you doing at leading yourself? If your answer is “poorly”, do you have a plan to change it? God didn’t design us to try to be a lone ranger, so you might need some help. Find someone who can help you on the journey – someone who will hold you accountable. This is too important to go left unattended. Your life, your family, your finances, and so many other things hang in the balance. God wants you to be your best. He will help you, but are you willing to take the first step?
