Remember what it was like learning to ride a bike? You would fall over again and again. Yet somehow, you managed to dust yourself off, bandage the knee if necessary and get back on the bicycle.
Until one day….
It worked and you got it!
Our lives are a little bit like riding a bike.
There are certainly times in my life that I have felt like I was never going to make it through what I needed to, or learn all that I should.
The task seemed too great.
The situation seemed too hard.
The boss was simply too difficult.
There wasn’t enough time.
Yet, somehow it all worked. The task got done. There was enough time. I managed to make it through a boss that was difficult or a situation that seemed all to hard to master.
I made it through. One step at a time. One day at a time.
Are you in one of those situations now? Does it feel overwhelming? Do you wonder if you will make it?
You will. Don’t lose courage.
It’s what everyday leaders do. We do it because we know that as we walk the journey that God has set before us; making it through matters not just to us – but to those around us. God has given us our circle of influence; no matter how big or how small, it is still our circle to touch.
Go on. Persevere. Keep going. Stand strong. Get back on the bicycle. Knowing that as you do, you are modeling for those around you to do the same.
Every day leaders-making a difference in the lives of those around us by getting back up even when it seems too hard!
