Leadership is rewarding, but it can be difficult. We often spend our time focusing on the negative and challenging areas of leadership. The trick is learning how to turn the negative into positive, to take the challenge and turn it into success.
David Brinkley said, “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”
Brinkley’s thought is a wonderful advice. The ability to take what comes at us as leaders and use it to lay a foundation for the future is critical to success.
It may not be the most pleasurable approach, but the outcome is worth the time in the wilderness.
