Insights From Louie
1. Elite leaders focus on what they’re doing, not on the people holding them back
Every day, you face attacks on your identity and your security as a leader. These attacks will test how secure you are in your calling, and if you’re a Christian, your security in God’s calling on your life.
Louie has found that elite leaders are secure enough in their calling that they don’t focus on the people who are causing issues in their lives, but naturally focus on the projects that they’re working on.
2. The impact of technology
While technology has brought a lot of good and has made a lot possible, Louie questions its impact on people’s neurological and sociological health. Louie recommends that you ask yourself daily, “Am I using technology or is technology using me?”
3. You can’t force the enemy away from your table
Too often, we as leaders let the enemy have a seat at our table. And to get him away from our table, you’d assume you need to push him away. But, Louie has found that you can’t just push the enemy away from your table. The best way to get the enemy away from your table is to bring truth to your table.
