  • There is one thing that stands between what you learn and what you do. And that one thing is fear.
  • All of the finest leadership training in the world can be rendered useless by fear.
  • That’s why on his last night with His disciples Jesus tells them not to be afraid.
  • Fear is the silent destroyer of dreams
  • Leadership begins with a dream
  • Fear destroys the love that inspires the dream and replaces it with a preoccupation with self
  • We are most likely to not know what scares us the most deeply
  • Being brave is hard
  • You must relentlessly inventory your own fears…what are you really afraid of?
  • Switch from playing defense to playing offense. No great dream was built on the fear of what might go wrong
  • If we are more impressed with bad men than a good God then fear is going to eat your leadership for lunch
  • You cannot move towards a dream of love while retreating to a bunker of fear
  • Hell is playing defense not the kingdom of God
  • 46million people on the planet are in slavery today. More people than at any point in the history of the planet.
  • Great leaders forge a community of courage around them
  • Lone rangers do not make great dreams come true ever, lone rangers make movies
  • If anyone was entitled to adopt a lone ranger leadership model it was Jesus…but what did He do? He forged a community of courage around him.
  • Courage, like fear, is contagious
  • Remember that we are only servants on the battlefield and that the real soldier is Christ Himself.
