Are you POWER hungry?
When you’re trying to succeed at something, are you willing to let OTHERS help?
Can you TRUST them with important pieces?
Do you allow them to run with THEIR vision as long as it syncs up with yours?
Empowering others doesn’t take away from your authority; it actually gives you MORE power.
“Give and it will be given to you…” Luke 6:38 (NKJV).
God wasn’t just talking about money. The principles of giving apply to EVERYTHING we do.
If we want to become MORE influential, we must give influence away.
People who try to HOARD all the power for themselves actually short-circuit their own destiny.
By their selfishness, they are putting a CHOKE-HOLD on any future blessings.
Success is rarely achieved as an individual. It’s almost always accomplished as a TEAM.
Rest assured…the person who HOGS all the credit won’t stay at the top very long.
The team that got them there may feel BETRAYED and decide to leave.
Even if they do stay, their HEARTS won’t be in it anymore.
The Best Encouragement
Empowering others will bring a team TOGETHER by increasing everyone’s feeling of value, buy-in, and self-worth.
Giving team members more responsibility actually MULTIPLIES our own effectiveness, and encourages them to work harder toward the goal.
If we want to be more valuable and accomplish greater things for God, we should look around and see who we can EMPOWER today.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Have you ever worked under someone who wouldn’t give you latitude to do why you needed to get the job done?
A harder question, have you ever been scared to empower others? Why?
