It’s important for leaders to believe that they have help. We’re constantly at war with something or someone, battling, even if with our own limitations. My Christian worldview gives me confidence that God is always fighting for me, that I am never alone, that I am part of God’s story, and there is a greater purpose to my life. I have friends with other worldviews who are strong leaders because they have confidence that there is a reason and a calling for their efforts to put a “dent in the universe.”
Leaders who don’t believe they have help, that life matters, who feel utterly alone and forsaken… well, they aren’t going to be leaders very long.
