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.
