From John Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
How do you become a great leader at Liberty National?
- A leader must give up to go up.
“When you become a leader, you lose the right to think about yourself.” -Gerald Brooks, pastor
- The true nature of leadership is sacrifice.
“I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.” -Mia Hamm, soccer star
- One sacrifice seldom brings success.
“He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.” -James Allen, author
- Successful leaders must maintain an attitude of sacrifice to turn around an organization.
“I have found that being honest is the best technique I can use. Right up front, tell people what you’re trying to accomplish and what you’re willing to sacrifice to accomplish it.” -Lee Iacocca, business leader (As he worked to turn around the Chrysler Corporation, Lee Iacocca slashed his own salary to $1 per year.)
Use the Law of Sacrifice to grow as a leader.
Do you have the courage to be a leader? Do you have the courage to sacrifice? You only need to take the first step, because Liberty National is behind you all the way.
