I’m a pusher.
I see everywhere the potential in other people to be greater than the sum of their parts, and I see the possibilities in other people’s situations to improve and advance that they sometimes don’t see themselves.
I want them to be the best that they can be using what God gave them.
Sometimes this is interpreted as me being domineering, controlling, a “Type A,” confrontational or even obsessive.
I get frustrated when I see people, organizations and even communities, not living up to the promise of their talents, abilities and skills.
It breaks my heart—and confounds my mind—to see all the potential in others that they don’t know they have.
It’s been 15 years since I legally became an “adult” and almost 25 years into my Christian walk, and I keep being taught a long, hard lesson.
I think that I’m going to have to keep relearning it until the end of my walk on this Earth.
I’m going to have to evolve into a puller, rather than a pusher.
