Meaningful March

In January we considered the importance of purpose, and February was about fueling our purpose by sharpening our focus. This month we build on those two themes and see how our intentional actions (clarified by purpose and fueled by focus) impact our leadership in a few key areas.

Here are some wise words to inspire you:

  • “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” -Woodrow Wilson
  • A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.” – Douglas MacArthur
  • “What is your legacy? Are you intentional about the sort of influence you want to have on the world around you? Being aware of how you want to be remembered gives you a perspective on what is truly important. Leadership is influence, and relationships are the foundation of leadership. Nothing is more predictive of your legacy than the quality of people you surround yourself with.” — John C. Maxwell
  • “To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” – Kofi Annan
  • “Leadership is the capacity to influence others through inspiration, motivated by passion, generated by vision, produced by a conviction, ignited by a purpose.” – Myles Munroe
  • “Intention is one of the most powerful forces there is. What you mean when you do a thing will always determine the outcome. The law creates the world.” -Brenna Yovanoff
  • “Leadership…is about creating change that you believe in” – Seth Godin
  • “You’ve got to know what you want. This is central to acting on your intentions. When you know what you want, you realize that all there is left then is time management. You’ll manage your time to achieve your goals because you clearly know what you’re trying to achieve in your life.”  – Patch Adams
  • “Our intention creates our reality.”  – Wayne Dyer
