4 STEPS TO MAXIMISE YOUR LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL



 4 STEPS TO MAXIMISE YOUR LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL

Our inner world reacts constantly and because we spend all our time simply reacting, we never experience our power. Ironically you begin creating your own reality the minute you cease constantly to react to the so called reality-[John Kehoe: Mind Power]

Leadership (which is service) is as result of self-discovery which is a sense of identity and good self-esteem that one does not draw from outside but from a true self-concept- true knowledge of origin, responsibility and destiny. This creates a sense of inner authenticity to lead and serve.

There are 4 steps to reaching your destiny, fulfilling your purpose, getting to maximize your potential and becoming an agent of change. These are:
1. Freedom
2    2. Responsibility
3        3. Order
4         4. Fruit

Step 1: FREEDOM

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. [Galatians 5: 1]

Freedom is being exempted from external influence. It is permission to work and fulfill your potential. When man was created he was given freedom to manifest his potential in exercising dominion over the earth as its manager. Rebellion against God made them lose this freedom, finding themselves with a lot of limitations to be themselves and do what they were capacitated to do. Every one of us finds themselves under certain levels of oppression whereby we are not in control of our lives and limited in one way or the other to do what we would think would be the highest expression of ourselves. The first thing we need is thus freedom.
We are always left in search of freedom in different dimensions. Some of the dimensions where we need freedom include:
i.                     Freedom to be you…. the you that you were created to be by original design.
ii.                   Freedom from the environment that wants to mould you and define you.
iii.                  Freedom from the immediate that stops us from pursuing the ultimate and important.
iv.                 Freedom from sin and sin consciousness
v.                   Freedom from fear…. That ceases initiative from us.
vi.                 Freedom from the curse of ownership whereby we are in a rat race to own what in the end will destroy us.
vii.                Freedom from the demands, expectations and pleasing people who cannot be pleased.

All the above mentioned factors leave us under some form of oppression. Being under the control of a cruel slave master in the form of the above factors from which we are searching for freedom from has a lot of negative effects on us that cripple us to be fruitful. Oppression destroys our self-worth and sense of self. It also dissolves a sense of meaning to life and creates  a negative attitude towards work and commitment as a result of all the efforts of the past that were unduly rewarded. All these create self-doubt that creates crippling self-hatred, inferiority complexes and fear. The negative perceptions put us in a cycle of failure and blocked desires will result in antisocial manifestations of anger, bitterness, violence that results in dysfunctional relationships and the list goes on.

It is on this background that we have come to the conclusion that as individuals, families, organizations and nations we need some freedom to be able to reach our destinies and fulfill our potential. We need to realize that being removed from the oppressor is not freedom but a foundation of freedom. Most people have been delivered from oppressive people, relationships, families, organizations and environments but never got freedom to be fruitful. Nations got the so called independences but became even worse because they never got freedom. Deliverance is not freedom but a foundation for freedom. Freedom is when oppression is removed from your mind, thoughts, actions and lifestyles. It is when one is transformed and oppression mentality is taken from them through a new form of education and empowerment.

Freedom is realized when one is exposed to a greater light. Light is not that which we only see with our physical eyes but as the 1st century world changer defined it, Light is that which makes manifest (Ephesians 5: 14). The greatest leader of all time put it in other words and said you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. (John 8: 32). There are 3 properties of light that shows how truth transforms us to be free to be ourselves and manifest our fullest potential for the glory of the maker. 

a     a.       Light reveals itself.
    Whenever light appears you see it clearly. You will be able to identify what you desperately needed but didn’t have. You will know truth from error, the important from trivia.
b    b.      Light reveals the beholder.
   You begin to see yourself clearly when you are beamed by the truth. You can know who you truly are and  be freed from being like others and trying to please and live for people. You will have an answer to the question: WHO AM I?
c    c.       Light reveals other things.
   Under the true light we begin to see what is around. We are surrounded with so much resources and opportunities that are only visible under the light of truth.

When the light is the true light who is Love then freedom happens faster. Nothing liberates us and reinforces our self-concept, esteem and confidence than being exposed to true unconditional love. When we receive His love for us we realize our true value by looking at what God was willing to part with to be reconciled to us then we can begin to see ourselves as he sees us.

At COTACC and Arise Africa Cause we are mandated to help individuals, couples, families, organizations, corporates and nations acquire this kind of freedom to be able to perform and be fruitful enough to maximize their potential and enjoy full expression.

Only God has the freedom of choice and those who have enough light to see things from his perspective. Freedom of choice is only for those who are in the light- [Coach Tarie: Wisdom Garden Vol. 1]
