Have you had enough of real estate? Are you completely disillusioned about the state of our economy? Well, you are not alone. In fact, it’s not just real estate that has us spinning on our own axis at dizzying speeds. It’s our collective attitude about the state of our country, and to a lesser degree, the world. The catch word of today is “confusion and uncertainty” instead of “carpe diem” during the Baroque in the 17th century Europe. No one wants to seize anything unless it’s a bagful of cash and a free trip to Hawaii.
The leadership instinct you are born with is the backbone. You develop the funny bone and the wishbone that go with it.
- Elaine Agather
Leadership is not magnetic personality—that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not "making friends and influencing people"—that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
- Peter F. Drucker
A good leader inspires others with confidence in him; a great leader inspires them with confidence in themselves.
Leadership these days is confused by politics and politicians. Worse than this, most people seem to feel that if they are not a politician they must be, and can only be, a follower. Yes, of course, there are business leaders, religious leaders, etc., but with the help of the media and our education system most of us have been indoctrinated into thinking that normal people like us cannot be leaders in any way, shape, or form.
