LEADERSHIP IS A PROCESS OF SOCIAL INFLUENCE, WHICH MAXIMISES THE EFFORTS OF OTHERS TOWARDS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF A SHARED GOAL.

No champion ever became so without the benefit of a few good failures to sharpen the mind. Michael Jordan once said, “I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Never surrender to the seductive pull of self-pity. If you've been knocked down, pick up the pieces and begin reconstruction. Acting as a victim is to threaten your future. Remain purposeful, productive and flexible. No wave lasts forever, but there is always another wave. Accept fate and move forward.
Turn when the tide turns. Practice instantaneous alignment with life. Instead of beating your head against the hard wall of reality and succeed only in bruising your spirit, invest your energy in making quick adjustments. Become agile and flexible. Your own decisions can do more to influence your stress level than anything that life serves up to you.
