Everyone is (can be) a LEADER!. Do you search for innovative ways to change, grow and improve? Do you enlist others in a common vision? Do you help foster collaborative goals? Are you a person who can show appreciation for other’s excellence? As we celebrate Presidents Day, we focus on LEADERSHIP! It is needed in many ways in communities, in careers, in schools, as well as in politics and public life. We appreciate those who have taken the challenge for service as our Presidents and leaders!
What would Lincoln Tweet! ? What would our notable Presidents say about leadership if they were tweeting now? As we celebrate President’s Day, think about what they have said. What would Lincoln say if he were tweeting now? Abraham Lincoln said:
#Succeed “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.”
#Liveyourlife “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
#Integrity “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”.
#Prayers “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”
#sharpentheax “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
If George Washington had a facebook page, here is what he would be saying.
#peaceharmony “Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.”
#guardyourreputation “Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.”
