Leadership Minute: Answer the Right Door


If you keep answering the door and your dreams never leap, you’re answering the door for the wrong people. – Joel Osteen

As a leader you will find that many people will knock at your door. But the key for you is to be discerning about whom to open it for. When gossips knock at your door; don’t open it. If complainers or whiners come knocking; don’t answer. The dreams you have and the work that is before you is too important. Don’t let negative people derail you or your dreams with their toxic ways. Embrace the people who will encourage you and lift you up. Be sure to open the right door.
