David: Leadership – Day 8

Read 1 Samuel 17

The way of David is leadership. David types, with their formidable sense of destiny and intense passion, are able to inspire others to action, instilling them with confidence like David instilled in others upon defeating Goliath. David types are leaders at whatever they do, ranging from professional to more personal engagements, from the boardroom to the schoolyard to the athletic field. Any type can lead when it comes to money, but David types have a distinct ability to see the big picture. They possess a clear sense of why something is worth pursuing, and they align resources toward action.

In leadership roles, David types elicit followers because their goals are inspirational and inclusive; they cast a clear vision and welcome others to pursue it with them. Their financial visions and goals inspire followership and financial engagement because they appeal to a shared interest, not simply to a vision or goal that improves the leader’s life alone. David types help others see why financial contribution toward a goal is worth investing their personal resources.

David types are inclined toward the future, toward what is possible. Like David, whose life reveals that he possessed a strong sense of destiny, David types resist satisfaction with situations as they are, figuring out how to make incremental tweaks. Rather, David types explore and invent brand-new futures. They’re blue-sky, big-time visionaries who spend far more time imagining what’s next than focusing on what’s happening right now. They set ambitious goals for their future, and they’re rarely satisfied with life as it is. David types break new ground on a regular basis—they’re always leaning toward the future, toward new possibilities. They tend to be singularly focused and highly driven.

Tomorrow, you’ll learn about the way to financial well-being.
