What Great Leaders Struggle With
But Are Scared to Admit
They were grappling with loneliness and isolation
They were wrestling with self-doubt and feelings
They were fearful of letting people down
They were afraid of public failure
They were scrambling to get everything accomplished
They were laboring over their weaknesses
They struggled with criticism
They were wrestling with the best way to handle confrontation.
As you notice each statement Started With “They Were” so lets get over our “We Are” and get to the “We Were”

What I came to realize is that it doesn’t matter what position you have or whether you lead a team of one or a company of thousands.
Struggle is a part of leadership, it brings lessons to be learned and opportunities to be shared.
If you can find meaning in your struggle you will succeed as a leader.
Lead from within: When leaders can battle the struggles of the present they will learn to unlock the success in their future
Because the best leaders learn how to question and tackle challenge with a humble and sincere approach.
Strength is about pulling yourself together, even after you’ve been shattered into a thousand pieces. Falling is merely the first movement we take before rising
The storm is out there and every one of us must eventually face the storm. When the storm comes, pray that it will shake you to your roots and break you wide-open. Being broken open by the storm is your only hope. When you are broken open you get to discover for the first time what is inside you. Some people never get to see what is inside them; what beauty, what strength, what truth and love. They were never broken open by the storm. So, don’t run from your pain — run into your pain. Let life’s storm shatter you.
2 Timothy 2:15
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
“Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.”
“Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many–not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happywould lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”
