Shift your thoughts. As a leader, I must consistently make the shift from the natural to the spiritual. From the "now" to the "coming". From the obvious to the invisible.
Anyone can report on the obvious or negative "facts" around them. Leadership finds a path to victory when everyone else is shouting defeat. It takes no faith or creativity to be negative. None. Nada. Zip.
Shift your thoughts. Look for a solution. Walk by faith and not by sight.
I'm thinking of a few examples where this is necessary...do you have one?
