Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes. ~Peter Drucker
Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
Good intentions are not enough to be successful. We need to produce positive results. The world is full of people who make excuses and justify why things are bad and not working out for them. That is common but not productive.
One of the things that makes a person successful and a good leader is they don’t just talk the talk. They also walk the walk. They do what it takes to produce good fruit (positive results).
Don’t take this the wrong way and think that there will not be challenges along the way. There are always challenges. There will be times when things are going well and times when things are not. That shouldn’t matter.
Keep seeking God’s wisdom and direction; keep moving forward and eventually you will produce positive results.
