One of my favourite quotes from John Maxwell is: “If you think you’re leading, but no one is following, then you are only taking a long walk”
Because, the truth is, as much as you may have a mission and vision that you feel called to establish- you can’t do it by yourself, sis!
In fact, to quote from a devotional that I once wrote on Euodia and Syntyche and make this more clear:
A God-given vision will always require the assembling of a team, as teamwork makes the dream work more effectively and efficiently than doing things alone. However they also teach us that teamwork only makes the dream work if they remain like-minded, just as Paul implored [Euodia and Syntyche] to be [in Philippians 4:2-3] . Without “complete sympathy with the object of the alliance” (in the words of Andrew Carnegie) the vision will fall apart and never come to pass.
But how can you get people to willingly follow and support your cause like that?
