True leaders – those who have resilience, an adaptive capacity, and who bring positive lasting change into the world by the gift of vision, communication through meaningful narratives, and who bring out the best in others are leaders who have become aware of and accept their own faults, blind spots, and brokenness. They have looked into their own darkness and selfishness. But they have placed their faith and lives in God – a power greater than themselves! They are thereby able to live in humility with kindness, courage, hope, strength, and a mature forgiveness of others. Adversity, failures, and challenges thus are seen by these leaders as opportunities to learn and to add to a positive narrative of never-ending growth, hope, and self-awareness. Acceptance and turning all over to God are key practices of success.
