Leadership Promises - Guard Your Thinking

"For as he thinks in his heart, so is he . . . Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words . . . Apply your heart to instruction, and your ears to words of knowledge . . . Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day; for surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off. Hear, my son, and be wise; and guide your heart in the way."  Proverbs 23:7, 9, 12, 17-19

Leaders understand the importance of their minds to the future of their organizations. Consider some of these timeless principles offered in Proverbs 23 about our minds and a godly vision for tomorrow.

Your thoughts determine your character.

  1. Be careful of your thoughts; they may break into words at any time.
  2. Don't waste your thoughts on those who don't hunger for them.
  3. The first person you lead is you, and the first organ you master is your  mind.
  4. Don't let your mind drift away from God's truth and into vain envy.
  5. Stay confident that your vision will come to pass.
  6. Discipline your thoughts to remain steadfast in what you know is right.
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible.
Good day!
