On Leadership: The Improvement Challenge- Day 3

Welcome to The Improvement Challenge,  Day 3! It has been a purposeful ride all through.  I appreciate all those who have committed to this challenge with me too. I am positive that it is going to be worth it! If you have no idea what the Improvement Challenge is, read it up  here

My Day 2 of #TIC21 was fulfilling.  I did everything I was supposed to do; studied my Bible, wrote something and I started reading the book I intended to read. For my 21 days Improvement Challenge,  I’m reading John C. Maxwell‘s “5 Levels of Leadership”. Although I started reading it  some weeks back, I felt the need to start reading all over again. So, I would be telling you one or two things I learnt from this book yesterday. For those who have read John C. Maxwell’s “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership”,  this might look familiar. 

P.S: I am not doing a book review. If you want to know all that is in the book,  gaan buy it *tongue out*

The first lesson I learnt from this book is that making a positive impact in your world is dependent on your ability to lead. Contrary to popular belief,  Leadership is not being in position.  If you think leadership is position,  how then will you lead effectively if you do not occupy a position?  The only way to enforce that change that you so much desire in your country and in your immediate environment is by learning to be a better leader. And this, of course,  requires intentional efforts. Read books,  listen to messages, find ways to learn how to lead without being in a position.  And if you would like to learn Leadership,  the Improvement Challenge of 21 days might just be exactly what you need. *wink*

Thank you for reading.  Have a purposeful week ahead!

    I love this post. It brought smiles to my face. I will definitely invest time and resources on becoming a great leader. I like this in particular, “The only way to enforce that change that you so much desire in your country is by learning to be a better leader” and how to achieve this has been succinctly explained in your post.
    Keep on inspiring lives with your write-ups.

  • This is a very nice piece Orifunke. If leadership is everything, then everyone must be a leader. We all must be committed to the process of growth
