A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on leaders, leadership, and success

Successful leaders don't start out asking, "What do I want to do?" They ask, "What needs to be done?" Then they ask, "Of those things that would make a difference, which are right for me?" They don't tackle things they aren't good at. They make sure other necessities get done, but not by them. Successful leaders make sure that they succeed! They are not afraid of strength in others. Andrew Carnegie wanted to put on his gravestone, "Here lies a man who knew how to put into his service more able men than he was himself."

Peter F. Drucker (1909 - 2005)

A Quote by Sir Peter Blake on sir peter blake, jacques cousteau, americas cup, new zealand, yachting, heros, and leaders

"To win, you have to believe you can do it. You have to be passionate about it. You have to really "want" the result - even if this means years of work. The hardest part of any big project is to begin. We have begun - we are underway - we have a passion. We want to make a difference."

Last log book entry of legendary yachtsman Sir Peter Blake, winner of the Around the World Whitbred race, America's Cup winner 1995 & 2000 for New Zealand, and previously head of Jacques Cousteau foundation.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on god, mastery, leaders, and service

A true Master is not the one with the most students, but one who creates the most Masters.

A true leader is not the one with the most followers, but one who creates the most leaders.

A true king is not the one with the most subjects, but one who leads the most to royalty.

A true teacher is not the one with the most knowledge, but one who causes the most others to have knowledge.

And a true God is not One with the most servants, but One who serves the most, thereby making Gods of all others.
For this is both the goal and the glory of God: that His subjects shall be no more, and that all shall know God not as the unattainable, but as the unavoidable.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Thomas D. Willhite on leader, leadership, i am, leaders, follower, followers, and following

When most are asked to quote their "I AM's," usually they come up with such things as: I am a farther, a male, an engineer, six-foot one, 160 pounds; or, a mother, wife, secretary, and so on. They have limited themselves to exactly what they are. Where are the men and women of today who will shout: I AM GREAT...I AM A LEADER? Where are the leaders of today? What has become of them? Why is this world made up of so many followers?

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on leaders, achievers, voice, intelligence, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, vision, discipline, passion, conscience, and 8th habit

When you study the lives of all great achievers--those who have had the greatest influence on others, those who have made things happen--you will find a pattern. Through their persistent efforts and inner struggle, they have greatly expanded their four native human intelligences or capacities. The highest manifestations of these four intelligences are: for mental, vision; for the physical, discipline; for the emotional, passion; for the spiritual, conscience. These manifestations also represent our highest means of expressing our voice.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Herman Goering on sheep, pacifists, patriotism, and leaders

...the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger.
