Leadership Thought Of The Day…

“What I like most about change is that it’s a synonym for ‘hope.’ If you are taking a risk, what you are really saying is, ‘I believe in tomorrow and I will be part of it.'” Linda Ellerbee

An aversion to change is fairly common. For most, there is a fear associated with change. Perhaps it is because of uncertainty, or what it requires us to do.

Fear of change, however, is also associated with a fear of loss. With change comes loss, generally the loss of something held dear by those who avoid or reject change.

This may involve a loss of freedom, comfort, position, ego, and a thousand other areas, but the reality of this fear is powerful.

Imagine how different our approach to change could be if we saw it through the eyes of today’s post. What if change represented hope concerning our faith in tomorrow? Change is inevitable. Not all change is good; but not all change is bad either.

As leaders, a key driver in our leadership should be to instill hope in others and that will involve some level of change.

  1. My key word of late is “opportunity.” Whatever happens, let it be God’s opportunity for our growth and for the sharing of the gospel. Great post today!
