Something For the Week

somthing-for-the-week“Neither personality nor methodology can substitute for personal growth. We cannot model what we do not possess. Begin learning and growing, and watch those around you begin to grow.”

John C. Maxwell (Developing the Leaders Around You)

I have had a copy of John C. Maxwell’s book Developing the Leaders Around You for some months now and one way or the other, I never got round to reading it. Since I started working with young people this year, I figured it was time to pick it up again and I have learned a lot. It has been slow going because I have been busy but it is not a book to be rushed through anyway.

This week I am taking some time out to learn and to grow. I know from experience that people and teenagers especially, learn best from example so I want to set a good one.

What inspired you the week before? Is there anything you read which you are holding onto as a beacon for the week ahead? Share with us by dropping a comment or leaving a link to a post on your blog.
