This Boss thing and this Leader thing is serious. You really have no time to talk about it if you are living it. I thought I could still be a boss by just calling MY own shots. That’s foolish thinking. Yes, you do have to have control and govern over yourself, but a real leader is shown through the impact to and through other people. Leaders are put in position to influence. When you’re truly bossing up, you have empowered others around you and they execute at a high caliber because of the example you’ve set. I took a step backwards. I was turning down opportunities to lead and boss up and was “just talking” like one. I got nowhere. Now, I’m clamoring for a new opportunity to show how great of a leader I can be and what my version of bossing up looks like.
God reminded me of who I was and who I’ve always been. With great opportunity comes great responsibility and sacrifice. 2019, we get back to that and do so much more.
