Lance Witt on Taking Responsibility for Your Life – Episode 107

Lance Witt on Taking Responsibility for Your Life – Episode 107

“A lot of people are catapulting towards a final scene that holds a lot of regret.”

Lance Witt is one of those leaders I hold so much respect for. With over 40+ years of leadership experience, and a deep understanding of soul care and ministry leadership, he holds so much wisdom for the Church today. I am honored to have him back on the podcast for today’s conversation!

In this episode, we’re talking about finding clarity on the life you truly want to live, the very real importance of acknowledging our limits, the message God has for leaders in this season, the formula that leads to a life of meaning and effectiveness, and so much more.

This is one you don’t want to miss!

Key Takeaways

1) “We don’t intentionally walk away from Jesus. The noise of everyday life just keeps us distracted.” This is why intentional times of reflection truly matter. The key word here is intentionality. If we’re not intentional, the chances are much higher that we are building a life towards something we aren’t actually proud of.

2) Your limits are actually a gift from God. Whether it’s being a parent, your personal capacity, or something else, these are natural limitations built into life that should actually protect us from taking on too much. The problem comes when we ignore those natural limitations.

3) “I am responsible for my life.” There is so much truth packed into this one quote. Wow. God gives us the authority to choose how we are going to live. What path are you on?

4) Clarity + Courage + Calendar = Effectiveness. Lance explains this incredibly well in today’s episode, but this formula is challenging. Which of these do you need to prioritize?
