Be Willing to Shake the Tree – General Leadership

See on Scoop.itLiving Leadership

Recently, the world experienced the passing of a leadership icon.

Nelson Mandela was a man who lived his life putting others first…his family, his country, the world. Committed to using every ounce of energy to promote change, his inspiring example confirming how a single, persistent person can make a profoundly positive difference. No matter how daunting or discouraging their circumstances.

Be willing to fight for truth, take on great challenges, risk failure and strive for growth. Don’t shy away from making mistakes. Choose to mirror Mandela and unsettle the status quo.


Matthew Fritz‘s insight:

Moving and shaking…meeting challenges through action and resolve. BE a doer, DO right in your community, GO out and engage.  What are you waiting for?
