We have had back to back success with our nature series – from the Eagle to the Ant and most recently, the Hen. This week, we continue our series on Life Lessons from Nature with the 10 Leadership Principles from the Lion. This series was inspired by my friend and brother Pastor Wole Olusola.
Principle No 1: The Lion only hunts when there is a need for it (When it is hungry). Purpose is what drives the Lion to Act.
“The reason why you do what you do is more important than what you do” –The Catalyst
There must always be a “why” for almost every decision you make and every action you take if not, you will never find fulfillment in your actions. It is this “why” that will keep you going even through seemingly difficult provocative situations and when all odds are against you and things are not going as expected.
PURPOSE is a motivator, it keeps you fired up and driven till the end when your objectives are achieved. Purpose infuses boldness and courage into you as you face your odds.
Leadership Lesson No 1 From The Lion:
To be a great leader, you must have PURPOSE and you must be BRAVE. Don’t act except with purpose; it is a waste of resources and time.
