Affirmation for September 17, 2012: A Different Kind of Leader

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves. Lao Tzu
Thought of the Day:
There are often times when we feel we don't have that leadership quality to excel in this world. We feel like conducting a crowd isn't our thing - putting outselves out in the front of the team and calling the shots is a quality that outgoing fore-runners have. That's not who we are.
Is that really true? Leaders inspire and push people to accomplish beyond their limits and work together and build a team morale. Whether you lead by running the forefront or by talking with your friends encouraging to reach beyond their means, your influence creates the results any leader can bring to the team. As there are many different types of members, there are many different types of leaders.
Good Luck!TeamDS

You know I\'ve never been any kind of leader and I\'ve never understood this strange need our society has that everybody should strive to be one. Some of us are just average folks. Is that so wrong?

I agree with Lao Tzo. To know you have helped lead someone to a satisfactory position that they have been trying to achieve on their own without much success, without any accolades or kudos, now that is a quality that I admire in a person. So few can do this though.
