The Coates Perspective for March 29, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
Fulfilling Your Potential By Making Good Choices
There is a huge difference between the desire to make good choices and the reality of actually making them as a daily habit. Good leaders know that words are cheap. We are measured by not what we say but what we do. Why do some succeed and others fail in this critically important area of personal growth? The successful leader who fulfills their potential learns to implement this third principle.
Principle #3: Those who fulfill their potential make good choices.
It was Eleanor Roosevelt who once quipped, “One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes.” A good choice can be the difference between making and breaking your organization. A good choice may determine the kind of all-star team you are building in your company. A good choice will far outlive your words.
Here is the take-a-way for the leader who desires to fulfill his or her potential. How is it done? What does a leader have to do in order to grow in this critical area of personal growth?
There must be a commitment to make good choices.
