Leadership is tough.
You will face bitter criticism, heart-breaking disappointments. You will likely face the reinvention of your organisation; and the reinvention of your leadership style. You’ll have difficult succession conversations.
All these things are tough… but you must keep going. We need ONGOING COURAGE.
Aim for the end; aim to finish the race. “Fight the good fight… finish the race… keep the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). You gotta know this: God saves some of the sweetest things for the very end!
DO NOT BAIL ON YOUR MISSION!
