How to Use Your Authority to Ascend to Higher Levels

SUMMARY

  • In life, we’re put in positions of authority – expected and unexpected. 
    Responsibility comes with authority.
  • Another definition of authority: the ability to make a decision. 
    Nobody has given us this authority; it is preconceived.
    Whatever we make choices about, there is an authority that accompanies it.
  • Authority is a predestined position inherent to human beings. 
    Through authority, we gain respect and ascend to higher levels of authority, where we have authority over others.
  • Authority is a tool. 
    Don’t be tyrannical with it or you won’t keep your authority very long.
    Be a servant and respect those people under your authority.
  • Leadership authority 
    Don’t pass on a negative authority.
    Take the word “authority” seriously
    Teach others that you have authority/governance of your life and those around you
    Be a good steward of your authority.
