Twenty years ago way before Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Netflix I stepped to the podium of the Lakeside Auditorium in front of about 2,000 expectant people and I explained what I felt was the need to launch this thing called The Leadership Summit. Leadership is this intense journey into yourself. It is how much you're willing to learn, how much you're willing to give. I think the best leaders keep their people safe. But the best leaders go forward. When you get human potential untapped and motivated to achieve a worthy purpose everything truly is possible. I would offer to you that we miss out on some of life's most meaningful opportunities not because we can't negotiate successfully with other people. It's because we can't negotiate yet successfully with ourselves. If you feel frustrated and limited in your potential, if a relationship isn't where you know it could be, stop and ask the question, "What is the crucial conversation we are either not holding or not holding well?" I have been doing some new sports lately. I went ball hunting recently. Ever went ball hunting? Some people call it golf. I am tired of hearing about servant leadership. You know why? Because I don't think there is any other kind. Why should someone want to become a leader? Because they want to sacrifice themselves for the well being of others. The company will not be more truthful or more graceful than I am. I am the constraints on our company and our ability to express that. Leaders who lead well, finish well, and leave a lasting legacy are those who recognize their power is a sacred trust to be used to build up not to destroy. You got to take the step sometimes into the unknown. Life is short but God is big. Successful leaders breathe this air. Life is short but God is able to do anything. I want to be as clear as I can so I can hear from God. The only way I can do that is by getting away from everybody for a moment so that when people see my work they know this is not just about making me laugh. This is about helping me spiritually. Individuals produce more ideas and better ideas than groups of people brainstorming together. We need to restore quiet to our cultures. If we will invite the Kingdom of God to where we are in the public areas, God will take over and we will begin to see better societies. It has happened in URA. It can happen anywhere. William Wilberforce, he did not subscribe to an organization that only catered to the affluent. The reason why Bryan Loritts is planting a church in Memphis, TN, a segregated town, is because a 25-year-old white man could not relegate leadership to a mere theory. Now you cannot as a pastor, as a business, as an organization, you cannot let your budget dictate your faith. Because once the moral condition of your community has been revealed to you, we must move to action. Legacy leaders are the ones who lead something beautiful behind. Enough of playing small, enough of playing safe, it's time for a grander vision.
