The privilege we have today is the access to resources about great leadership that has gone before us.
Some more famous than others, some currently still alive or some long from history. There are news, biographies, documentaries, personal accounts and many other ways to obtain information about them. While one person may not appeal to everyone, there is someone out there we each find inspirational.
We are truly blessed, in today’s world, to then be able to stand on the shoulders of the giants who have inspired us in their own way. So that we may also play a higher game.
When you feel like you don’t know what you are doing anymore, a quick check on “what would _______ do?” often brings you back to your vision.
I have a wierd mix of inspirational leaders I look up to (wierd because they don’t all fit the same mold – though not so funny, because isn’t that what leaders are about): Michael Jordan, Paulo Coelho, Napoleon Hill, Da Vinci, Morrie from Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, Mother Teresa and many more.
Who’s wisdom are you tapping in today?
And who is taking you through the weekend, to keep you always focusing on the higher game?
