Looking back over the past seven years of my life, it has been an amazing journey of exploration and discovery. But I would not be able to say this had it not been for the wake call that opened my eyes to see that as senior pastor over a small congregation of young people, I needed help with my life before I could truly make a difference in their life.
That's when I decided to become a coach with The John Maxwell Team. I realized that I was underdeveloped and ill-equipped to really help make a difference in the lives of the church members. Yes! I was preaching and teaching the word, I even laid hands on some and cast out a few demons. But something was missing. I saw their struggles and as a pastor, I could feel their pain. But I was limited by my skills and abilities to help them manifest their dreams and visions.
Becoming a certified independent coach took me on a personal growth journey that helped me to discover the greatness in me. I had untapped wells that needed to break free. I had potential that blossomed like a well-watered rose garden. I became fully aware and very intentional about growing myself so much so that that desire became my mission to see others grow.
Later in my growth journey, I discovered how bad some of the members of my congregation were suffering from low self-esteem and self-worth. I discovered that my growth stirred up some things. And I realized that hurting people will hurt others if healing does not take place. I was resented for taking my growth journey by the very people that I set out to help. Some even left the ministry. And when this happened it opened up even a greater desire to help others grow and discover their mission in life.
I shared my story in hopes that it will help others to realize that you can only help others as much as you are being helped. You have to grow beyond the people you lead and the people you want to serve. Nothing in your life will ever substitute the growth that is necessary for you and me to excel in greatness. If you're sick and tired of being and doing the same thing day in and day out, and you know that you have more inside of you, I recommend that you find a good coach or mentor. Allow them to help you heal and discover your greatness!
