Once I started letting go and letting God, I became a new person at work. I still worked as hard as ever but I began to work a lot smarter.
I began to see God in every person, meaning I could finally recognize that everyone had unique talents and abilities. If I let people express those talents, they could take a lot of the load off my shoulders. When I finally let go and let God, I allowed people’s talents to come forth. I learned to focus more on my employees and less on the business itself. My new philosophy became, “I’m not a good CEO unless I’m helping you become a better person.” I let go of all the micro-managing and began to use my talents as a visionary and motivator. I felt like a “born-again CEO.”
