One of the hardest things to do is to look objectively and honestly at yourself or your organization for what might need to change to break a barrier. If you want to lead a church or an organization of a larger size, then you must take a hard look at what you are doing that is operating in a “smaller” mentality.
It’s amazing how many things you overlook or become comfortable that might keep you from breaking through to the next level. (Crooked pictures, boxes piled up in public areas, unfinished construction work, papers taped to the wall…) All of these things might be overlooked in a smaller setting, but in a larger setting they leave a very bad impression. There are many things that worked in a smaller setting that will NOT work if you want to move to the next level.
If you are in the place of transition, you must take a hard look at everything you do. Everything you do on a small scale it should reflect the quality of where you are trying to go.
Take a look around your church or your place of work today. Is it clean? Is the quality of display revealing where you are headed or holding you back from getting there? Seems like a trivial thing…but absolutely necessary to make the transition.
