Then you need to walk, talk, and lead with the right attitude!
7 Attitude Factors You Must Consider If You Want to Be an Excellent Leader:
1. Attitude Grows From the Inside Out
Attitude takes root inward. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. What is inside of you is going to come out and it will affect people around you; for good or for bad.
2. A Good Attitude Guards Your Words and Heart
As a leader, it is vital to understand the significance of your words and the impact they have on yourself and others. A good attitude keeps a guard on the words spoken and this in turn guards your heart and keeps your heart in the right condition to lead by example.
3. A Proper Attitude Maintains Your Peace
Your attitude is going to be under attack every day, and you need to be prepared to maintain a proper attitude regardless of what happens or what someone says or does. Keeping a proper attitude throughout the day will maintain your peace and further empower you with self-control and other fruits of the Spirit.
4. A Positive Attitude Has Power to Advance You
A positive attitude allows your true self to shine, and this will help advance you. In a world full of darkness and chaos, people are looking to leaders that shine a positive light of hope.
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
— Winston Churchill
5. Your Attitude Either Draws People to You or Repels Them
Leaders are meant to lead. However, it is hard to lead if you carry a bad attitude that repels people away from you. A good attitude allows people to be drawn to you even in the midst of disagreement.
6. Attitudes Are Contagious
Attitudes are contagious and to be a leader of excellence requires maintaining a proper attitude and at the same time not tolerating a negative contagious spirit to spread and do damage.
“You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.”
— Zig Ziglar
7. Your Attitude Projects Your Future
Your attitude reflects what is in you and what is going on in your life. It is also like the prophet of your future. If your attitude is poor and negative and says “nothing ever works out anyway,” it is easy to see what you can expect in your future.
On the other hand, if your attitude is positive, hopeful, and rooted in a heart of love, you are clearly on the road to success and leading others on the way.
Make no mistake about it: Your attitude is a critical factor in your success as a leader. You must consider these seven attitude factors if you want to come to the place where God wants you in the area of Christian leadership.
May your attitude produce abundant results and lead others into a life of growing prosperity!

Christian Leadership: How Can a Spirit of Excellence in Leaders Bring Growing Prosperity?
Powerful Leaders Choose a Spirit of Excellence!
As leaders, we must pursue excellence all along our journey of life and not think of it as a destination.
Maintaining a spirit of excellence creates positive results and growing prosperity.
We serve a God of excellence and we should desire to have excellence come out of us.
“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!”
— Psalm 8:1
A Lack of Excellence Equals a Lack of Prosperity
Not everyone has had the privilege of being raised in an environment that operated in a spirit of excellence. Too often chaos and confusion are the norm. A lack of excellence in an environment tends to create a victim’s mentality in people.
How on earth can progress be made when the conduct of a leader or group is lazy, slothful and non-committed?
Where there is no commitment to excellence, there is no promotion or growing prosperity. People may seek excellence and prosperity in life, but nothing is going to happen until the excuses and victim mentality stops.
People, whether they know it or not, are looking for excellence, and it should be required in leaders.
A Spirit of Excellence Brings Promotion
Excellence always takes us to another level and causes things to happen. If we want more, we have to be determined to shake off a slothful spirit and put on an excellent spirit; in order to bring out our full potential.
Excellence often requires doing something we have never done before. It requires us to stretch in all areas of our personal growth. This does not go unnoticed to others or God. Leaders that have a spirit of excellence will get God’s attention and allow Him to take them to another level.
We see examples of this all throughout the Bible and throughout history. Take a look at how Daniel was promoted because of an excellent spirit.
“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.”
— Daniel 6:3
Excellence is something leaders must continually work on and strive to improve and develop in themselves. Keep in mind; none of us are perfect and have it all together. This area of life, like all others, requires that we seek God daily for His help.
Believe me. As a leader, there might be areas in your life that other people don’t think you excel at, but once you start working and striving towards a life of excellence others will take notice. You will grow as a leader, and just like Daniel, you will find that a powerful spirit of excellence puts you in position for promotion!
May you continually pursue a spirit of excellence and experience a life of growing prosperity.
God bless you –
P.S. Has there been a time in your life you experienced a promotion because you were operating with a spirit of excellence? If so, feel free to share and encourage others…
Abundant Living – 7 Success Tips to Guide Your Journey of Life and Journey to Heaven!
Soar In The High Places of God
An abundant eternal life is also a choice.
God has prepared a great plan of prosperity for us and now it is up to us to reach out and receive by faith.
As a Christian; life is not a ‘try it out and see what happens’.
It takes faith to become a Christian and faith to live the Christian journey of life.
7 Guiding Success Tips for Abundant Living:
1.) Allow the Spirit of God to Reveal – Let the Spirit of God help you know what has been freely given to us. God reveals to us by His Spirit; the things He prepared for those who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12)
2.) Live a Life of Excellence – Be determined to live a life of excellence and go all the way up the mountain! Don’t live a mediocre life and be content to only go half-way.
3.) Get in The Word – It is the Word of God that gets on us and in us that creates success. Get in the Word and do what it says and your journey will become prosperous and you will have good success in life. (Joshua 1:8)
4.) Catch the Vision – Be a person of vision and dare to do things others aren’t willing to try. Have an eye of an eagle to see a far off. Living by faith requires using our spiritual vision to see what has not yet manifested in the natural. Wait on God to get your vision. (Habakkuk 2:1-2)
5.) Understand Your True Identity – Know who you are, the authority you have, and the promises made available to you because you are in Christ. There are over 130 “In Him” and “In Christ” verses in the Bible that help you with this. Dig them out and discover what you have been missing!
6.) Live in Victory – Have wings to soar like an eagle above the storms that come. Overcome the accuser by the testimony of the blood of Jesus in your life. Submit yourself to God and resist the devil to make him flee from you. (Revelation 12:11, James 4:7)
7.) Pray Always – Be a person of prayer. Build yourself up spiritually before you do anything. And in everything we do it should be by prayer. (Philippians 4:6)
Why not choose to live in the high places of God? God wants His children to have the very best.
Your journey on earth and your journey to heaven can be thrilling! Do not settle for anything less than the very best.
And don’t be fooled; wishing and hoping does NOT result in blessings.
Bottom line: God’s dealings with people are always based on covenant. Discover what belongs to you and claim your inheritance by opening The Book, praying, and listening to God. God will let you know what to do. Just call on Him and act on His Word by faith and enjoy abundant living.
May your journey of life be filled with growing prosperity!
How Can a Life of Excellence Produce Prosperity?
Excellence Produces Prosperity and Who Doesn’t Want Prosperity?
Why just settle for a life of getting by and simply existing when you can live a life of excellence that brings growing prosperity into your life? You have a God given potential for excellence. Discover it and use it to live a prosperous life!
Excellence is defined as “superiority, great value or worth.” Obviously the areas of your life that are superior and of great value are going to produce prosperity. (While at the same time those areas of little value produce little return.)
So how do we achieve excellence? Understanding God’s Word enables us to achieve excellence in every area of life. Abraham Lincoln, one of America’s greatest presidents, said, “I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to men. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated through this book.”
You can have excellent health, excellent relationships, an excellent business, and an excellent spirit. Proverbs 17:27 says:
“He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.”
Living with determination to do things with excellence in life will bring the reward of growing prosperity. How can it not?
- If you purpose to excel on your job and be the best employee you can, increase in the form of promotion and raises come your way.
- If you decide to be the best spouse you can be and live with that purpose, the result is a satisfying and full-filling marriage.
- If you are a parent living with the daily purpose of excellence, those planted seeds produce prosperity in your children’s lives.
- If you are a business owner that keeps the spirit of excellence as a foundational principle, you also keep your business in a position of growing prosperity.
Having a spirit of excellence can bring attacks from others. However, don’t be concerned with others that want to attack your standard. It is normal for those who cut corners or have lower standards to get offended and criticize excellence. You don’t need to look far to see that a lower standard does NOT produce prosperity. Yes, I know, it may appear at times that it does. But, take a closer look, and in the long run you’ll see that cutting corners only cuts away at a foundation. A life of excellence builds a strong foundation so that prosperity can grow in your life.
Give God your best and always do your best for His glory. When Mary anointed Jesus’ head and feet with expensive ointment, Judas was angered. Mary did not get offended at this attack; because she was determined to do what God was directing her to do with excellence. She poured out her best that day wholeheartedly. Jesus told the people to leave her alone and because she gave with excellence for His glory it would be remembered and told as a memorial of her (Matt 26:12-13).
A wholehearted approach to everything you do in life will produce prosperity because of your spirit of excellence. We all desire to see prosperity growing in our lives. Living a life of excellence produces prosperity and also honors God. So we should all have a goal of working to maintain the highest quality of reputation of excellence. Start today to develop a reputation of excellence in all that you do.
Enjoy the growing prosperity that living a life of excellence will bring your way!
