“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” -Vince Lombardi It’s okay to fail. Under what circumstances would you quit a project? There are seven committment detractors: (1) Giving Up (2) Thinking life should be easy (3) Believing success is a destination (4) Negative Attitude (5_ Accepting mediocrity (6) Fear of failure (7) Lack of vision. Where there’s a lack of leadership, there’s no shortage of self-interests, always looking at something where there’s something in it for “me”. “All about me”... “What’s in it for me”... Positional leaders tend to view leadership this way where servant leaders put others ahead of themselves. The good news is: it’s never too late to change. Change is a given; it will happen whether we are apart of it or not. When you get knocked down, take a step back to see the big picture and see what adjustments need to take place to get back in the game and win. MARCH 2013 | LPRH.CO
