Know The Signs: Personal Leadership Dashboard

There are 10 Signs you want to keep in mind as you are becoming more self-aware. For starters, identify the 2 that stand out and begin the process of asking where these feelings originate from. You may be surprised at what you discover. 

Now, let get into it…

1. Using God to run from God 

Doing things and taking on tasks He never instructed you to do. When I pronounce, “The Lord told me I should do this” when the truth is, “I think the Lord told me to do this” -Peter Scazzero

2. Ignoring the emotions of anger, sadness, and fear 

Myth: feelings are irrelevant. They should be avoided and ignored on the basis of Scripture

“To feel is to be human. To minimize or deny what we feel is a distortion tortion of what it means to be image bearers of our personal God. To the degree that we are unable to express our emotions, we remain impaired in our ability to love God, others, and ourselves well.”

3. Dying to the wrong things

Dying to defensiveness, passiveness, detachment from others, arrogance, stubbornness, hypocrisy, judgmentalism, a lack of vulnerability, etc.

4. Denying the past’s impact on the present 

5. Dividing our lives into “secular” and “sacred” compartments 

Instead of fitting God into your life, realize that God is your life

6. Doing for God instead of being with God 

Your message of spiritual maturity is based in your Christian service

7. Spiritualizing away conflict 

“You know the Lord is leading me”

8. Covering over brokenness, weakness, and failure 

9. Living without limits

10. Judging other people’s spiritual journey
