“Challenge yourself everyday to do better and be better. Remember, growth starts with a decision to move beyond your present circumstances.” Robert Tew
Leaders understand the necessity of growing, improving who they are and all they do. They understand that leading others assumes a responsibility that demands growth.
Tew’s thought serves to address two significant ideas. The first is the daily challenge to do better. While certain choices are made one time for all time, e.g. becoming a Christian; other choices require a daily commitment to achieve. For leaders to become better in who they are and what they do, deciding daily to improve goes far in achieving results.
The second idea emphasizes the decision itself. The reference is not about just any decision, but a decision to move beyond the present circumstances. This requires an ability to examine the present circumstances, conduct an honest evaluation, and take the step towards achieving the goal.
To remain neutral only supports stagnation and ultimately failure. Leaders know the dangers and seek to avoid such an outcome. The one true way to do so is the thought of the day.
