If you are a leader, you will hit a rut. You will face a giant brick wall. And while you know you need to get out of the rut or face the challenge, you are tired and unmotivated. Leadership does that. It’s tiring.

So if you are a leader who has found himself or herself tired and unmotivated, let me share some quotes from a few well-known leaders.

  1. Thank you very much for this post. I have been having a really challenging semester in many different areas of my life and my class load this semester is very heavy (to a point where it does not seem fair in regards to how much work is being given at the college). I was sitting and praying to God just asking for the strength to get through this semester without exploding and came online and saw this post. It was very timely and is much appreciated. Sometimes I ask myself if all the academics are worth it and have to remember that it is not about me. It is about those who will benefit from it in the future, those who are helping support me, and to honor God in what he has called me to do.

    Thanks again.
