Liberty National – Maxwell Law #18

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.
