Becoming a Better Leader

If you want to become a better leader you must think like a manager (someone who is in charge)

1 Timothy 3:4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)

Manage: be in charge, direct, control.

Leaders who better themselves are those who control themselves. They direct themselves down the right path. They are in charge of their own lives and house. They find solutions. They don’t settle for where they are. They think as “Better Leaders”.

Proverbs 25:28 (TLB) A man without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls.

  • (MEV) He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls.

1 Corinthians 9:25 New Living Translation All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize.

  • English Standard Version Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.

  • Berean Standard Bible Everyone who competes in the games trains with strict discipline. They do it for a crown that is perishable, but we do it for a crown that is imperishable.


Joseph had self-control. He was a leader. He held his code of conduct. He kept his integrity in adversity and never became a people pleaser.

Becoming a better version of yourself (living like Christ) means becoming a better leader; if you become a better leader, you will see better results.

Hard work alone is not enough. Instead of just becoming a workaholic, you must become a thinkaholic. Role-play in your mind how things need to be before making your next move. This is also called seeing what God would do—getting the wisdom of God before acting. Better leaders have knowledge that comes from God. They can think. Overthinking is not wisdom or being smart. It’s going beyond what’s true and necessary.
