    Words To Lead By

    Looking for leadership?

    Look in the mirror

    A leader is…a dealer in hope

    Vision is the art of seeing things invisible

    Where there is no vision…the people perish

    Study the past. Live the moment. Plan the future

    Leadership is action…not position

    There are no shortcuts…to any place worth going

    Don’t wait for your ship to come in…swim out and meet it

    Most things are difficult…before they are easy

    Act like you are invincible. Know that you are not

    Fail to honor people…and they will fail to honor you

    Blame softly. Praise Loudly.

    The more you say the less they remember

    Be grateful for luck. Don’t count on it

    It’s not what happens when you’re there.

    It’s what happens when you’re not

    Think with your heart

    Authority is a poor substitute for leadership

    Hold everyone to a high standard. Hold yourself to a high standard

    Listen…and lead

    Remember…there’s always room at the top

    But even more at the bottom

    So…seek out people…better than you

    So…seek out people…braver than you

    The time is always right…to do what’s right

    Keep your promises. Keep your confidences.

    Keep your temper

    Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that were the fruit is?

    Be out…and about

    Enjoy the process…but crave the goal

    We will either find a way…or make one

    Be not afraid of greatness

    Real leaders are ordinary people…with extraordinary determination
