Only Those Who Thrive on Ambiguity

But only those who thrive on ambiguity can start at ground zero and accomplish great things.  Those are the people who have learned influential leadership.  They have made visionary decisions to lead rather than maintain.

These People Never Reach Their Potential

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible obstacles must first be overcome.  People who can’t tolerate ambiguity must have all the answers before they make a move.  They never attain their potential.

What Distinguishes the Influential Leader

What distinguishes the influential leader derives from his ability to live by a statement of faith rather than by the appearance of circumstances around him.  A person who cannot face ambiguity cannot do this.  In the end, any vision expresses a statement of faith.  Man can never have a certainty of tomorrow.  He believes God revealed the vision.  That gives him faith in the vision and motivates him to take the necessary action to realize it.
