12 Quotes from Measuring Success

April 8, 2019, 0 Comments

My friend Shawn Lovejoy has a new book out … Measuring Success: Your Path to Significance, Satisfaction, & Leading Yourself to the Next Level.

Shawn is a proven leader and has committed his life to helping other leaders thrive in their calling. In my first read through his book, I highlighted a few statements. Take a peek and then dive into the book for yourself.

  1. A true leader is willing to confront reality and this means confronting the status quo: first in us, then in others, then within our organization!
  2. The only way we can have no critics is to never try to do anything significant.
  3. A leader doesn’t take people where they want to go. A leader takes people where they need to go!
  4. Listen, pessimism and perfectionism will suck the life out of you.
  5. Don’t wait for a slower, better day to get your life in order. Start today. Traction equals satisfaction.
  6. Share your holy discontent with the status quo.
  7. Vision leaks. Life has a way of causing the vision to leak out of us. Sometimes it gets squeezed out. Sometimes it gets kicked out of us!
  8. The secret of your success will be found in your daily routine. If you want to change your life, you will simply need to change your habits.
  9. Every day, when I wake up, I face a critical choice: make my life about serving me and my agenda, or make my life about serving God by serving others!
  10. Measure your success not by the kingdoms you build, but by the people you build.
  11. There is a unique sense of rest and peace that comes in knowing we do not have to do it like someone else has done it or is doing it.
  12. Nothing makes me feel more successful than when I have been successful at home.
