Jesus, CEO: Using Ancient Wisdom for Visionary Leadership by Laurie Beth Jones
“How many energy leaks do we have in our own daily lives? Leaks such as angry words, distractions, or tampering in someone else’s business while neglecting our own. To be a leader requires a tremendous amount of energy. Perhaps that is one reason why entertainers and rock stars often succumb to the energy boosts offered by alcohol or drugs. They are pouring out so much energy to the crowds that their own reserves get depleted.
A close friend of mine who is known for her highly polished ability recently returned from a meeting where there had been many hidden agendas and open conflicts. She sat down with a heavy sigh and said wearily, “I think my psychic feelers have been damaged.” She has learned to develop ways to replenish her “antennae.” Quiet prayer, rest, and time alone are always ways that work for her… as well as a good round of golf.
Most leaders are intuitive, or they would not be able to hear and see things that no one else can see or hear. Leaders must therefore be aware that their energy is subject to depletion, and they must make guarding that energy reserve a priority.”
ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:
