Born a Leader – But don’t feel like you’re there yet?

Do you KNOW you were born to lead, but don’t feel like you are there yet?

When it seems you just can’t get to where you want to be,  you must Make up your MIND!

Have you ever heard someone say “make up your mind”?  This is a statement to declare that you need to decide which direction you are going to choose, and to do it, no matter what.  When you declare and make a decision in your mind to take a course of action,  then you are actually creating or making up a mental image and thought process in your mind and insisiting that you will do it.  Think about it.  You can decide to keep reading or stop here.  It’s a mental choice.

When a woman is putting on her makeup, or a man is grooming himself, they are changing their appearance,  how they feel, what they think about, ect. So it’s the same process your mind, you can actually change the way your mind thinks and what pictures you want to create as you visualize and see the Leader you were born to be.  Many times we do this without being purposeful in our thinking, like walking, reaching for something, etc.  Our subconscious takes control.  So we must think about and decide what we will allow.

The problem with not feeling like you are the Leader you were born to be is,  you have not MADE UP YOUR MIND TO BECOME THAT PERSON!

Remember the verse of scripture in Psalms 1: 1-3 that says,

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

The pine tree in Indiana  stays green all year round.  Take a look at this picture and say to yourself, I am like this tree.  Notice every other tree has no appearance of life, though they may not be dead, they just aren’t bearing green leaves or fruit.  God gave you the ability to create in your mind the mental image of His purpose for you as a born leader, and he gave you the ability to preform every act as that born Leader!  God wants you to have Life abundantly!

How you get there, is to MAKE UP YOUR MIND!  Make up the mental image, create the emotion, the tenacity, and deliberately do something DAILY without fail in your leadership role.  You get to decide.  Will you meditate on God’s Word and His purpose for you?  Will you allow Him to lead and guide you?  Do you want to become like the tree planted by the rivers of water who’s leaves will not wither, and prosper in whatever you do?

If so, then MAKE UP YOUR MIND – in every way that expresses you to be a leader, every day.  Meditate on the Word of God and His promises for you.  Make your mind work for you and with you.  And above all else, let God be your guide.  Holy Spirit will lead you every step of the way.

As I have heard it said, Get out of your own way!  You have the power to make up or create in your mind whatever you want to become!  Choose TODAY and MAKE UP YOUR MIND to BE A Leader, with God’s purpose in mind.

BE THE LEADER  YOU WERE BORN TO BE!!
