One major way we siphon

  |  0 Comments

One major way we siphon off courage is by avoiding the conflicts we dread.
Linus and Charlie Brown know about this. As they discuss how to deal with their difficulties. Linus tells Charlie Brown that he has a definite philosophy: “no problem is too big or complicated that it can’t be run away from”
We may smile at that, but our emotions kick in and we often feel just the way Linus does.
The key, whether it’s facing a life threatening event or a speaking engagement, is to confront what we feel. Colin Powell’s leadership rule no 12 is “Don’t take counsel of your fears…” Eleanor Roosevelt advised, “Look fear in the face… you gain strength, courage, and confidence… you must do the thing you think you cannot do”.

In the movie Black Hawk Down, a vehicle filled with wounded American soldiers lurches to a stop in the middle of a street where Somali bullets are flying in every direction. The officer in charge tells a soldier to get in and start driving. “I can’t”, the soldier says, “I’m shot”.
Sometimes as leaders bullets not only fly but hit us right in the gut, disabling us.

But in Black Hawk Down, the officer uses this immortal line after the soldier sasy he’s shot: “We’re all shot. Get in and drive!”

Pastor Bill Hybels, in his book Courageous Leadership, says that earlier in his ministry he didn’t rank the need for great chemistry with his teammates very highly. But after many years of experience, he became “a convert to the great doctrine of chemistry”. He has concluded that personality and temperament, blending with other team members and with him, represents one of the top factors in building a great team.
