DON’T SLAM THE DOOR ON YOUR IDEAS
Catherine Elizabeth Ponder once said, “Whenever you have an idea, that is God tapping at the doorway of your mind saying, ‘Let Me in’.”
How many of us, when we get an idea to do something - like start a new job or business, write a book, take better care of our customers, or work more effectively with fellow employees - dismiss the idea almost as quickly as it came? How many times do we “slam the door” shut, instead of letting ideas in?

A MOTIVATIONAL MOMENT…ON LEADERSHIP
A LEADER’S VIEW ON BECOMING A LEADER
Charles de Gaulle was and still is considered one of the great leaders of the 20th century. In his manual for leadership, “The Edge of the Sword,” he defined what he believed were the crucial qualities that a leader must possess. De Gaulle wrote, “A leader must possess intelligence and instinct, and in order to persuade people to follow a specific path, he needs authority. A leader must be able to create a spirit of confidence. The leader must also possess mystery, character, and grandeur.”
De Gaulle knew that politics is theatre and so is the world of business. A leader must assume “the role” of the leader. A leader needs to act like a leader. He or she must constantly be aware of how their actions and words affect others. They must understand the power of words, as well as the power of silence. They must know how to reassure, praise, and comfort, as well as discourage, censure, and deter those they lead, when needed.
How would a CEO, president, or other type of leader that you would admire act and speak? To be a good leader one has to be a good follower, so, picture in your mind the type of leader that you would admire and follow. How do they dress? How do they speak? How do they treat others - regardless of their position in the company? Think on these qualities and decide which you may be deficient. Find a leader from history and read up on that leader. Discover what made that leader such a success.
As Shakespeare once said, “All the world’s a stage. And all the men and women merely players”. If you want to become a leader, accept the role of a leader. Like a good actor, you must become the character. You must think, act, and look like a leader. “Great leaders have always stage-managed their effects,” said Charles De Gaulle - driving home the old adage that leaders are indeed made…not born.
“Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a polluted mind, suffering will follow.” – Buddha
“A great manager has a knack for making ballplayers think that they are better than they think they are. He lets you know that he believes in you and makes you get more out of yourself. Once you learn how good you really are, you never settle for playing anything less than your very best.” - Reggie Jackson, champion baseball player.
“There is a space between each of your thoughts. The "gap" between thoughts is the window to your higher self, your cosmic self. The real you cannot be squeezed into the volume of the body or the span of a lifetime.” - Deepak Chopra
“If you are headed in the wrong direction, God allows 'u' turns.” - Unknown
“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” - Unknown
