A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit Kenya. It was an incredible trip for our team. During the trip our team was able to go on a safari. During our safari we drove in an open roofed van through the Kenyan bush, with a guide.

Our purpose was to find wildlife, and that is exactly what we found. We saw zebras, gazelles, giraffes and even water buffalos! We experienced a herd of elephants trek right past us.

We literally had elephants walking on every side of us, we could almost touch them. I can still remember the feeling – “we are still alive right now by their choice”. 

The highlight of our trip was getting near a pride of lions.

We actually got to witness a kill and it was an intense sight!

Have you ever thought how the lion chooses its prey? 

To be a healthy leader and have the greatest influence, you must stay connected with others in an intentional community.

This will help you to avoid blind spots or traps and it will allow you to enjoy the journey to the fullest.

The next time you start to feel lonely, or like you are striving on your own, reach out to a friend or a peer and expose those thoughts and feelings to the light.

When you do, those feelings will shrivel like the lie they are and as a by-product will deepen the relationships you have with the people you share life with.
