Still on the three things a man must learn to DEAL with before he can take the LEAD. Today therefore, we will discuss the second, which are SITUATIONS, and most times these aren’t usually part of the planning process.
Unlike resources, which a leader can make plans for based on what the team has at hand and what they’re expecting, a man can’t properly make plans if at all as regards situations, which is why when they pop up a lot of leaders SINK and most times their team sinks with them as the project dies before completion.
Situations as regards to leadership are things a leader and most times his team didn’t plan for because they’re beyond man as they’re NATURAL OCCURRENCES. You either find a way to quickly adapt to them or they clear you out of the way. When these come to play, a lot of leaders give up and conclude that nature is against them and words like IMPOSSIBLE becomes their friends in relation to their proposed projects.
The same thing happens in a man’s life, some are able to deal with issues as regards resources and find a way to get back on track, but when harsh situations arise, they’re too quick to GIVE UP because they believe there’s nothing that can be done against nature therefore they drop the remaining cards in their hands and walk away.
Frankly speaking, I know unforeseen circumstances can be so challenging when they arise especially when it appears like they’re here just to obstruct your GOALS but the question to ask yourself is, after giving up now of what use what is it to have started at all?
Deal with situations with the right mindset from today and let your dreams become a reality. The best way to achieve your goals is the against all odds route. Your life deserves the best leader to fulfill it’s purpose and that leader is YOU.
