Leadership Thoughts


  • "A champion is one who gets up when he can't." (Jack Dempsey )

  • "Great things are not accidental. They must certainly be willed." (Vincent Van Gogh )

  • "The things you are most resisting are the things you most need to do."

One of the challenges for anyone dedicated to expressing their leadership best is dealing with the chattering voices of naysaying critics. As a matter of fact, the more brightly you shine in your work and the more quickly you innovate and the more excellent you become, the more foulmouthed critics you will attract. It's just part of the game. Emerson said it brilliantly: "Great people are always misunderstood."

Leadership isn't a popularity contest. Leadership is about having the bravery to do what's right versus what's easy.

These are great Leadership thoughts to ponder over which are close to my heart. Its not easy to get up and run after falling down. But the great Leaders do. And that is what makes them what they are. Different.

Cheers..
