Successful leaders, entrepreneurs, or even pastors, are odd mix of two things: hunger and humility.
A leader who refuses to settle for the status quo because new ground remains to be gained is hungry. An entrepreneur who is willing to eat Ramen noodles and mac-n-cheese in order to put more money into his business is hungry (in more ways than one!).
To be successful, a person must have a hunger for more … for more growth, more expansion, more quality, more effectiveness, more simplicity.
At the same time, they must have a deep humility that recognizes the limits of their own abilities. It takes humility to say, “I don’t know” or “I’m sorry.” A humble leader will be content to serve in the background while someone else is in the spotlight.
Hunger and humility. Do you have what it takes to be successful?
