I’ve seen so many potentially great leaders waste opportunities because they were waiting for the perfect scenario before they begin to develop as a leader.They don’t enjoy where they are currently in life or work—so they think there is nothing to be gained where they are now. They aren’t in their dream job—so they don’t look for the benefits of being in the present situation. They don’t respect the leader they are supposed to follow—so they close themselves off from learning anything—whether good or bad—from him or her. They don’t plan to stay in their current work location—so they overlook personal growth opportunities. They don’t enjoy the people with whom they work—so they miss the potential of building future relational connections. They are waiting for the “right” opportunity—so they never give their best effort, not realizing their “off-paper” resume (what others say about them) follows them.
