It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn't matter who gets the credit.

When the best leader's work is done, the people say, "We did it ourselves."
- Lao Tzu

Whether in the business world, in our community activities - such as schools or religious groups, or in our families, there are times when each of us takes on a role as leader.

Do you ever feel that there is no recognition for your leadership qualities? If so, that may be a good thing and a great compliment. Consider today's two quotes and contemplate how much more we accomplish, and how much less resistance we create, when we gently guide a group consensus rather than demanding that everybody do things our way.

*** Book of the day: Learning to Dance in the Rain

John Quincy Adams: If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader

Martin Luther King, Jr. - A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.

Nelson Mandela: There is no passion to be found playing small

  1. thanks for the quote today...just like saying give credit to where it is due. but it seems it doesnt happen that way. people just take the opportunity to claim the credit for their glory even if it is not theirs to be happy about. i hope people will find in their hearts the true meaning of love and service. it is something you give without the desire to be rewarded or to be appreciated.
