Confident Leadership

An Exemplary Leader is Brave

Day 10 of our series! Whew! I hope you've seen so far how very much the scout's path to Eagle resembles the the path taken by an exemplary leader in the network marketing profession. These are all traits we must embrace in our own life. Today's theme: BRAVERY. "A Scout is Brave", it states in the Boy Scout Law.

 

Being brave means we courageously set out to do something even though we are very afraid of doing it, and we don't back down until it is completed. The true excitement isn't in the 'ordinary' path, though we certainly are welcome to choose that one. Think about a time when you courageously did something fun - like maybe rode a huge roller coaster or went extreme (or even regular) ziplining, like my famiy and I just did this summer in Mazatlan. How did you feel when you did it? Or did you back down at the last minute? Going all the way is where we really can feel that the world did not come to an end when we were courageous enough to do it. In fact, we felt the thrill that we would not have felt if at the last moment we backed out of it. 

 

Being brave also means to stand up for what we believe in even though the world around us may laugh at us and call us crazy, and maybe even mock us when they see us. Being brave means continuing the journey to the top rank in the company with which we chose to partner, regardless of well-meaning people that do not support our efforts because they think we making a terrible mistake with our life. Being brave means we continue our journey even though the haters come out and continually say mean things about us , online or offline, and every chance they get, they insert something directed towards us that make us cringe and take a deep breath before we can keep going. 

 

Learn to be brave, my friend! The excitement comes when you do not back down from what you said you were going to do, which is to reach the top rank. Be brave and show the world around you how what they say does not matter as much as what you know is the right path for you to take. God is with you every step of the way, so persevere on the path of blessing; many brave leaders have reached the top before us and the life they now experience is breathtaking. It's a life attainable by us too, but we need to BE BRAVE and persevere on the journey, regardless of how long it may take.
