Leadership: Contentment / Dreaming Paradox (3 of 3)

This post originated from an Advanced Leadership Development course that was a part of the Wesley Academy at Resurrection taught by Dr. Lovett Weems and Cathy Abbott.

Contentment isn’t complacency.
Dreaming isn’t envy.

  • How do you be content where you are while dreaming for the future?
  • In what ways does it make sense to see the current position as a step to the next position?
  • Does it ever make sense to see the current position as a way to get to the next position?

We have to be convinced that this is God’s will that this is the place for us at this time in our lives.
This is where we find fulfillment.
Dig in where you are and try to find meaning there.
Some people spend their whole lives in the next position.
