"Everyone who has led others to please God will shine like the stars" (Dan. 12:3 CEV).

When the time came to appoint a new vice president, the president of a large company took the two top candidates to England for a series of meetings at the company's London office.

Since both candidates were a close match in skill and talent, the president was hoping the trip might reveal the better of the two.

One night, the president purchased the three of them tickets to a play at a theater across town. As they waited in front of their hotel, he realized that getting a cab was going to be more difficult than he had thought.

The president enlisted the help of the doorman and sent the other two men across the street to try to hail a cab. A few minutes later, one of the men waved the others over. He had secured a ride—in a private car!

As they all piled in, he explained: "I didn't think we'd find a cab in time so I flagged down cars and told people our problem until I found someone willing to give us a ride."

His method was unorthodox, but it got the job done. Resourceful and creative—the very traits the president had been looking for in a new vice president.

What do you have to lose in taking an outlandish risk? If you fail, people will still call you ingenious. If you're successful, soon nobody will even remember that you were taking a risk!
