The test of leadership is surviving and overcoming what average people run from.
It’s seeing opposition and standing firm right where you are. Executing no matter what you are faced with.
You trust the process.
Trees in particular remind me of leadership because they withstand all elements. They are most vulnerable during their initial growth stages but if they survive, WHEN they survive, you better watch out.
This is no different than you and I. When we start off in leadership roles it is easy to be swayed, confused at times, and even frustrated.
But the longer we stay planted, grow, learn in our roles….we become immovable.
