ED Call with @iamedwardlong
Personal Recap/lessons learned: LEADERSHIP
I truly believe this is 1 topic, that ignites my fire, keeps my heart racing, my passion fresh and my vision clear. But on the same token, it’s this same topic that gives me spiritual hunger pains, causes deep anguish within, and at times angers me when I sense it's taken lightly, or taught in error and exhibited in arrogance. We need people to be taught that they possess a hidden leader on the inside, and to reconnect to that leader, they must reconnect to the Creator who placed that leadership potential in them. They must be reconnected to God, and this is why we should come back to God not really to go to heaven, but to rediscover our true leadership dominion mandate, and then serve that to the world. I believe, the last 3 ED calls, had the courage to dismiss myths of who and what a leader is. I really want us to further dissect the fabric of what makes a leader a leader. gold nuggets:
1. Leadership potential exists in everybody. What I think we have missed is that we have somehow relegated leadership only to a special, talented few people.
2. Leadership will either lead you into a ditch or lead you into purpose. We need our leaders, especially those who are teaching our young people, to have the right message.
3. My concern is that the leaders who are presently responsible for guiding the masses and teaching the people in the church environment, as well as business and corporate, reconnect themselves to God's original idea and that is that God created man to have dominion over the earth.
4. Leadership is birthed out of anger.
5.When you discover your gift and authority, that gift attracts people. When people come to you, they are not really coming to you for you but for the gift and the vision that you are serving humanity of your generation with.
