"Keep your eyes on your goal and your focus on the journey."

- Kevin McNabb

"Good ethical leaders must communicate vision clearly, creatively, and continually. However, the vision doesn't come alive until the ethical leader models it."

"An ethical leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."

"Ethical Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them."

"Self-centered leaders manipulate when they move people for personal benefit. Mature ethical leaders motivate by moving people for mutual benefit."

"Inability to make decisions is one of the principal reasons executives fail. Deficiency in decision-making ranks much higher than lack of specific knowledge or technical know-how as an indicator of ethical leadership failure."

"Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not. When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it's almost always due to personal growth."

"Positional leaders ignore the fact that every person has hopes, dreams, desires, and goals of his own. Ethical leaders must bring their vision and the aspirations of the people they lead together in a way that benefits everyone."

"If you are an ethical leader, you should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it - young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous - is changed by it."

"The best ethical leaders are readers of people. They have the intuitive ability to understand others by discerning how they feel and recognizing what they sense."

Inspirational Thoughts for Today

Each and everyday we wake up to a world that is so very negative. We have a choice as to whether or not we want to be sucked into that way of thinking or not. I am hoping that you chose not to be sucked into the global negativity.

It is for this reason that I wanted to contribute to your fight against negativity by sending you a daily inspirational message to get you started. I have called this little contribution, Inspirational Thoughts for Today!

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”

“If you start today to do the right thing, you are already a success even if it doesn’t show yet.”

“Ethical Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.”

“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The ethical leader adjusts the sails.”

“Failing forward” is the ability to get back up after you’ve been knocked down, learn from your mistake, and move forward in a better direction.”

“Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.”
