“The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.”
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
In life, we may not all be leaders in business or social settings. However, there is one place we should always lead – our lives. We have to be willing to step up and take what Buddhist monk Jack Kornfield has described as “The One Seat”.
That’s the place where we are sovereign in our life; making our own decisions and taking responsibility for our outcomes. Today I am posting affirmations and original quotes to awaken the leader within.
