The Ant and the Elephant – Leadership for the self

By Vince Poscente

  • Life should be a fulfulling journey, not just a struggle to survive.
  • Life is tough, even when it doesn’t have to be.
  • Before you can become a great leader to others, you first must understand yourself.
  • You don’t know what you don’t know. Open your mind to discover possibilities that might not seem obvious at the time.
  • Clarify your vision. Zero in on a goal that has depth of meaning. The journey has to be worth taking.
  • Make fear your friend, not your master.
  • Inspire your team through emotion. Never underestimate the power of emotion.
  • Without conflict there is no growth, and the most challenging conflict is within ourselves.
  • We live in a world of instant gratification, but we need to fight that pressure and remember that the worthiest goals take time and energy. Stay the course. Change is gradual.
  • Commit to cultivating positive dominant thoughts.
  • Gratitude is the magic ingredient in the recipe for a fulfilling life.
  • Deep breathing is a good thing to do when you feel your stress level rise.
