Done watching Star Trek Into Darkness at Lucky China Mall.
I love action movies but about space movie or what I call futuristic earth, nah its not my taste. But a friend of mine ask me to watch that movie and I said ok I will try it out.
After watching I felt glad. Its not that bad after all and I illuminate something and I want to share it to you guys. This scene has given me a great impact and a lot of insights and leadership principle to take home. If I had a pen and paper I would list it down. I believe in the saying Ink is better than Think. Our brain can think of a thousand ideas but you will also forget it in just a while. So better write it down before it flew away
1. We are called to do the right thing ( Mentoring Session)
Before becoming a good leader you will first undergo to following a Mentor. Everything he is teaching and instructing means a lot cause he knows what will be the consequence if you don’t follow him.
Being a leader we have the authority over people under us. We need to follow strictly the rules and regulation of your territory. You can command them because you are superior but be wise and be careful every decision you make will affect them. Always do the right thing and pleasing to God, He is the real Commander-in-Chief.
James 4:7 ESV Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
This was always a reminder to us because by human nature we are “Pasaway”. We don’t listen to what the mentors are trying to tell us but you came to realize it when its too late. Why wait for someone to say goodbye for you to learn. I’m telling you it wasn’t easy. Follow Now and Regret Never!
One of the famous last line of Jesus when He is on the cross that hits me a lot is the phrase “It is finished.” (John 19:30) Every time I do things that is not glorifying Him I feel condemn but I always go back to the cross because again
It is finished.
3. Sacrifice yourself for your people not people for yourself.
True leadership is being a servanthood. Serve them the way it should be and they will do it in return. Mold & push them to lead. Trust them like your family and try to develop their full potentials and trust them that they can do it. Encourage and Empower them.
One issue in leadership is to know how your people submit their selves under your authority. Check yourself and reflect how your leadership works.
John 15:13 ESV Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
We paid the movie house for P225.00 (P 175.00 for the movie and P 50.00 for snack)
But for the insights is cheap. Everyday is a Learning process. Everybody needs an improvement.
