I know when it comes to the idea of leadership, you may think that it doesn't apply to you. Or you may claim that you're a leader, but don't have a clear idea about how to make it work better.
If you're not sure about whether you're a leader or not, then, I encourage you to read the following lines.
God Designed You to be a leader
I should probably start by stating that "God designed you to be a leader."
Yes, you were made to become a leader. You may also have heard this: "no one is born a leader, but we become leaders."

You may be connected to God through Christ and yourself. But, change comes as a result of a personal choice.
It's a choice of embracing a new way of life. In other words, you're going to have to make a decision to change your core values. These come out of your belief system. People's belief systems are not established over night. It's believed that they start between birth and around the age of 10 to 12 years old.

Last, Lead now
So, now what you're left to do is to lead.
Leading means that you step out now with all what we've talked about to influence your surroundings. By surroundings I don't mean only your environment or context in which you live.
I'm actually talking about all areas of your life and through the different roles you play on daily basis:
You're a leader, not in private only, but also in public. That means wherever you are, you can influence, and through you people can experience transformation in their lives too.
Bringing it together
God designed you to be a leader. You only discover it first by connecting with God. When you do so, you're able to discover the leader in you. Next, this discovery will require you to change your belief system and replace it with one that will help you fulfill God's mission in your life. It will eventually empower you to lead from wherever you live. So, lead now!
