Leadership Promises - Who You Are is Who You Attract

"Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant." 1 Kings 19:21

Effective leaders are always on the lookout for good people. But who you get is not determined by what you want, but by who you are. In most situations, you draw people who possess the same qualities you do.

What enabled Elijah to draw like-minded people to his side? The basic principle that who you are is who you attract.
  1. Every leader has a measure of magnetism.
  2. A leader's magnetism may impact others intellectually, emotionally, or volitionally.
  3. Magnetism is neither good nor bad in itself-it depends on what a leader does with it.
  4. Secure leaders draw both similar and complementary followers.
  5. A leader's magnetism never remains static.
It is possible for a leader to go out and recruit people unlike himself, but it's crucial to recognize that people who are different will not naturally be attracted to him. Their quality depends on you. If you think the people you attract could be better, then it's time for you to improve yourself.

Good day!
