"The natural outcome of deciding to please God as well as turning over control of your life to Him is a transformation of your perspective. If you live a life that is not designed to please God or give Him control, your perspective will remain inward and focused on self. If you live your life to please God and put Him in charge, your perspetive will be transformed to one that is outward and characterized by God-given confidence that will lead your life."
Ken Blanchard & Phil Hodges, Lead Like Jesus
