Face and Admit Limitations


, American religious figure.

Definition of VULNERABLE from Merriam-Webster Dictionary

1.  capable of being physically or emotionally wounded
2.  open to attack or damage : assailable <vulnerable to criticism>
3. liable to increased penalties but entitled to increased bonuses after winning a game in contract bridge
A leader without admitted weaknesses has no need for teammates. A leader who reveals no vulnerabilities provides no opportunities for teammates to make a significant contribution. Accepting brutal facts about human limitations, including our own personal weaknesses is crucial to authenticity.
The quote above is taken from the book “The leadership secrets of Billy Graham.” This is a great book. I encourage you to get it. My spiritual father bought it for me sometime in 2005, but I keep it close by in order to grab it and refresh my memory on the wisdom in it.

  1. “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9,10)

    Not always easy to accept but it must be done through humility.
