“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” – John C. Maxwell
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Do as I say, not as I do.” I’m equally as sure you know this doesn’t work!
Whether you’re leading children in your home, teams of people on the job, or citizens and an administration over a country, people will follow what they see you model.
If you want peace in your household, model peace in your thought-life, speech, and behavior.
If you want excellence in your company, be the most excellent worker there – regardless of where you’re at in the corporate structure. If you want a nation of patriotic citizens who live virtuously, show them what that looks like.
Remember: there is always someone willing to replace you in the leadership role if you create a vacuum for them to fill.
Be a leader who leads from the front, not one who gets left behind in the dust.
