Lolly Daskal, President and CEO of Lead from Within, a global consultancy firm, offers us 12 inconvenient truths from her above titled article. Let us look at the following 10 of these inconvenient truths from a Bible perspective, along with pertinent scriptures and articles:

1) Never confuse education with intelligence While this statement is true, intelligence alone is not enough.

2) Pain can be positive (Romans 8:28; Hebrews 12:5-11).

3) You're the boss of your life Are we really?

4) Failure is a stepping stone for success Read about the life of Joseph to see if this statement is true.

5) Problems can start from within Yes, they certainly can (see article).

6) High standards are worth keeping Yes, they are (see article).

7) Negativity poisons the soul — (Proverbs 12:6; Proverbs 18:21).

8) Success is not the key to happiness So true. Happiness comes from within a person (Proverbs 23:6-7). Many times, we look in the wrong places trying to find happiness.

9) If you wait until you are ready, you will be waiting for the rest of your life — So true. The time to start doing the Lord's work is now!

10) You owe something to the world, not the other way around — Very true. For example, what can we do for our country?
