Consistent preparation is a core part of leadership. And though we are all called to lead, it is preparation that helps us navigate through the challenges of leadership. Overcoming these challenges is not a coincidence. Instead, it is the result of hard work and requires discipline and preparation.
Whether reading books, attending seminars, or learning from and with other leaders, preparation demands personal accountability. Taking time to prepare yourself for the task ahead is essential to your personal growth and the development of those you lead. If you fail in your ability to prepare, the vision suffers.
Nonetheless, as you learn and prepare to be a better leader, you also must be confident in your preparation. Sometimes we may find ourselves in moments where we doubt our abilities, especially after a failure. However, we must understand that preparation does not exclude us from failure. It does, however, reduce its chances. And with the proper perspective, you will realize that even failure itself can be a form of preparation when you take the time to learn from it.
Still, we must not let our confidence in God and ourselves be shaken. Being born to lead, especially in times like these, requires preparation and confidence in what we were born to do.
