“When I get to the top, then I’ll be in control”

You know someone who thinks this. They’re the person who’s usually complaining about the current leadership, often cynical, perhaps scoffing. And they say something like this “If I were in charge, then I would get everyone to…”

OK, fantastic. For the rest of today, I hereby give you the title “President of the United States of America”. Now you have the title. What have you done about the enormous debt burden? When are you going to reduce taxes? When are you going to withdraw the troops? When are you going to sort out the banks? When are you going to… and the list goes on. Very swiftly you will realise that the leadership title means nothing.

What you find is that a leader has to give up to go up. The leader has to remember the Law of Sacrifice.
