I love the topic of leadership, it motivates me so much. Every day I want to challenge you to “Act Like A Servant, Think Like A Leader.” Have you ever seen a dog pulling a sled? The lead dog is called an Alpha Dog. The Alpha Dog is leading the other dogs, but at the same time, the Alpha Dog is serving, serving the owner of the sled.
To become great in life you must learn to serve others well with a spirit of excellence. Serving is the key to you becoming the person you desire to be. Serving others releases your “Genius Potential” and positions you to experience a feeling of fulfillment in life.
Everyone is a leader, when you understand this, the next step is to lead you well. No matter where you work, or what position you have, you are a leader, not because of a title, simply because we are all leaders. A leader is anyone that has influence, and we all have that.
So how do these two concepts work together, “Act Like A Servant, Think Like A Leader.” Many people sit on the sideline talking about what should be done, or if they where in charge they would do this and that. When you act like a servant, you look for the opportunity to serve, and because you think like a leader, you don’t wait for permission to do the right thing.
This is an excerpt from my forthcoming book “Act Like A Servant, Think Like A Leader.”
