Leaders Say What We Cannot!
I am going to share a single thought with you today: leaders say what we cannot! The greatest leaders form words that not only define a generation, but guide us through the echoes of time. Sometimes, the significance of these words are lost. However, it is always up to the new generation of leaders to not only remember these words, but to act on them! Who knows – even some of these new leaders may say something to inspire others for many years to come.
Churchill said: “To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to change often.”
Lincoln said: “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”
The Duke of Wellington said: “All the business of war, and indeed all the business of life, is to endeavour to find out what you don’t know by what you do; that’s what I called ‘guess what was at the other side of the hill’.”
Eleanor of Aquitaine: “Trees are not known by their leaves, nor even by their blossoms, but by their fruits.”
Julius Caeser: “It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life.”
Is there a modern leader who inspires you?
