A leader can make or break a business, task or team. They are people who, through inspiration and personality, drive other people forward toward a common goal in unison. A good leader isn’t someone who makes all the right decisions all the time, but rather someone who can consistently think about the future and keep the business moving forward.
Leaders need to share their insights and empower their team to implement a vision of how the business can progress, even through tough times. Don’t forget there are leaders at every level; it’s not just those at the top who are leaders. Remember the idiom “cream always rises to the top.” Well, that is the mantra for a good leader.

What kind of thoughts now, do you carry
In your travels day by day
Are they bright and lofty visions,
Or neglected, gone astray?
Matters not how great in fancy,
Or what deeds of skill you’ve wrought;
Man, though high may be his station,
Is no better than his thoughts.
Catch your thoughts and hold them tightly,
Let each one an honor be;
Purge them, scourge them, burnish brightly,
Then in love set each one free.
-Myra Viola Wilds
My heart is a garden tired with autumn,
Heaped with bending asters and dahlias heavy and dark,
In the hazy sunshine, the garden remembers April,
The drench of rains and a snow-drop quick and clear as a spark;
Daffodils blowing in the cold wind of morning,
And golden tulips, goblets holding the rain,
The garden will be hushed with snow, forgotten soon, forgotten,
After the stillness, will spring come again?
O, the circus parade! O, the circus parade!
It lays all the politics back in the shade,
And the merchants forget that they’ve got any trade,
While many remember they’ve never been paid
As they rushed out to look at the circus parade;
And preachers who used to be terribly staid
Yell just like boys at the circus parade.
Every one’s there, both the mistress and maid,
All looking on at the circus parade.
And out at the grounds, when you’ve seen the parade,
How delicious it is to drink pink lemonade;
And look at the elephant twirling his trunk,
And laugh at the capers cut by the monk;
Watch the old clown who is acting a dunce,
And try hard to see three rings going at once;
Gaze at the ringmaster cracking his whip,
And watch the tight-rope artist skip.
I saw that circus, Yes Sirree!
Saw about enough for three.
-Edwin C. Ranck
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
