Most leadership lessons are learned from a failure or challenge of some kind. (James Emery White, Minister)
White suggests what can be a positive result of such challenges: “You shoulder your way through it and, in hindsight, learn lessons you will carry with you for a lifetime.” You don’t learn much from running from the test or ignoring the failure. Determine the cause of the problem and how it could have been handled better. The lesson learned will make you a more effective leader.
God blesses those who patiently endure testing. (James 1:12)
These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold. (1 Peter 1:7)
