Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
Today, in taking Confucius’ advice, I’d like to share what I see in you from the heart.
I want to acknowledge you for taking the responsibility and the opportunity to be your best as a leader. You are an inspiration. Along with the hundreds of leaders I’ve met whose sincere efforts to succeed in the way that only they can, you are a true leader. You are the one who makes a difference. You are the one who changes the world. Your vision, your potential, your efforts – they leave a mark.
My wish for you is that what you achieve will far exceed any vision you’ve dared to dream. I hope that you will be not just clear but also honest and courageous about what you really want for yourself, for the people around you, for your life, for your leadership, and for the world at large.
There are times you’ll lose heart. You’ll get busy, you’ll get tired, you’ll forget, you’ll have setbacks, you’ll drift away. But you won’t get lost. You have everything you need to succeed, right there within you.
Along the way, I’d like to invite you to learn more about yourself and what’s possible for you by exploring what I call Your Inner Edge. It’s the heart of your leadership.
To learn more, come discover The Inner Edge: The 10 Practices of Personal Leadership. You will find it at www.TheInnerEdge.com. There I’ve included for you an overview of the book, endorsements by such thought leaders as Marshall Goldsmith and Stephen Covey, and more.
As you go forward into the future that awaits you, know that every step you take to improve your leadership is going to enrich your life and the lives of others. You will be the kind of leader who changes the world. The kind of leader others will follow. The kind of leader you were meant to be.
