Many of us have heard the sayings “misery loves company” and “smiling is contagious.” Both of these sayings are expressing two different kinds of emotions, people who are gloomy and people who are cheerful. The sayings are different, however, they share the same idea that people often become who they are around. It is essential that those who are attempting to walk in their gift surround themselves with others who are also perfecting their gift.
In a previous post I explained the 10 Signs of a Great Leader. I believe one of the most important aspects of being a great leader is to surround yourself with like-minded people. When we encircle ourselves around like minded people we eliminate jealousy, envy, intimidation, anger and competition.

In still, there are quite a few people who go through life never really knowing why they were created. When we understand why we are here and begin to maximize our potential we become leaders. Being a leader is a great responsibility and God expects much from those who have acquired leadership status.
In Luke 12:48 we find this scripture “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” The dictionary defines leader as, a person or thing that leads. I believe God has called everyone to be a leader. He has created everyone uniquely.
