Be Open To The Wisdom Of Others

This week I’m really taking to heart the many different ways that have been so famously said that to become a leader one needs to be in the company of leaders, listen & do what is asked of leaders that are where you want to be in life. I have put together some great quotes on leadership that have stood the test of time by some remarkable people.

So… here’s my 2 cents on being open to the wisdom of others.

1. A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done. ~Ralph Nader

2. Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow. ~Vince Lombard

3. Leaders need to be optimists. Their vision is beyond the present. ~Rudy Giuliani

4. The real leader has no need to lead – he is content to point the way. ~Henry Miller, The Wisdom of the Heart

5. Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders. ~Tom Peters

6. Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself. ~Thomas J. Watson

7. Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them. ~Robert Jarvik

8. Leadership is action, not position. ~Donald H. McGannon

9. A leader leads by example, whether he intends to or not. ~Author Unknown

10. Remember the difference between a boss and a leader; a boss says “Go!” – a leader says “Let’s go!” ~E.M. Kelly

11. You’ve got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you’re not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice. ~Steven D. Woodhull

12. Good for the body is the work of the body, and good for the soul is the work of the soul, and good for either is the work of the other. ~Henry David Thoreau

13. Remember, if you’re headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns! ~Allison Gappa Bottke

14. Now that it’s all over, what did you really do yesterday that’s worth mentioning? ~Coleman Cox
