Job 32:6-10 (NIV) 6 So Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite said: “I am young in years, and you are old; that is why I was fearful, not daring to tell you what I know. 7 I thought, ‘Age should speak; advanced years should teach wisdom.’ 8 But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding. 9 It is not only the old who are wise, not only the aged who understand what is right. 10 Therefore I say: ‘Listen to me; I too will tell you what I know.'”

You have more insight than others give you credit for.

You have more influence than you realize.

You have less time than you think.

You have more to offer than your boss sees.

You have the right people just waiting to be asked.

You have a God ready to do things that you didn’t even have the guts to ask Him for.

You have more opportunities than you realize if only you would slow down to see them.

You have just the right amount of resources.

You have too many reasons not to.

You have too many people counting on you to keep listening to the same old excuses.

If you’re just starting out as a leader how are you earning credibility with the other leaders in your organization? If you’re a more seasoned leader how are you empowering younger leaders to have their voices’ heard?
