The Every Day Leader: What do you SEE?

What do you see?

For some of us, we see a door closed. 

We can go no further.  We see it as the end of the road, thinking that perhaps we were meant to stay where we are on the outside.  Maybe it creates fear of what is behind.  If so, then we can convince ourselves to leave it closed.  It may even motivate us to look for other doors or opportunities – maybe one that seems easier to open!

For others we see a door to open.  We may wonder if it will be stuck from the paint, but we will turn the handle and try. We may even tug and pull, put one foot on the wall to give us extra leverage, simply because we wonder what is behind the door.  We are unwilling to give up until we can get the door open.

We are all made differently.  We all view life differently. 

Leaders know how they view life and they recognize that there may be different perspectives.  When we know how we see things, we know this allows us to be confident as we lead others.  When we recognize there are other perspectives, this allows us to be able to work with others. 

Have you ran across any closed doors lately?  If so, how are you viewing it?  Are you ready to work on opening it, or do you feel more comfortable to leave it closed and stay where you are?

I am firm believer that God provides opportunities for us each day.  We, as everyday leaders must be willing to take advantage of those opportunities, open the door and step in.  We have no idea just what that opportunity will lead to!

 Everyday leaders, taking advantage of opportunities to make a difference.

  1. RL,

    blogs are very time consuming but a great vehicle for so many things but there is no substitute for living out your life before others.

    Thank you for doing that and for posting a link to my webpage. I so appreciate that.

  2. Your very welcome. I have come across your blog once before through LinkedIn. You do have a way with words and I admire that. I am an aspiring writer as well (among other things) and was considering creating a blog on my own site (, but I’m not sure I want to take the time or try and become a defender of religious topics. I think I’d much rather spend my time being an example of Faith at work rather than talking, but maybe I’ll change my mind. In the mean time I’ll post your link on my webpage as a resource for inspiration. Looking forward to your commentaries and wish you the best in your journey!

  3. Great article. I too am a firm believer that God provides us an opportunity each day to make a difference in someone’s life. When I look at the picture of the door I see opportunity. Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration.

Thank you for visiting, please leave a commennt.
