About the Author

Introduction

What are your guiding principles? What do you have posted on your office wall?

W. Clement Stone began as a shoeshine boy and became a multimillionaire. He credits his success to three words: Do It Now. He required everyone who worked for him to write those words on index cards and post them in their work area.

Over the past twenty years I have collected and analyzed many of the quotes leaders post on their office walls or keep on their desks. Many of these quotes, pictures, and mementos relate to a guiding principle they have followed to achieve success. In addition, I have also asked many leaders this question—What is the best leadership advice you ever received? This book includes a great collection of office wall quotes and advice about leadership.

This book will help you focus and further define your core beliefs, values, and guiding principles.

Chapter 1

The Leader’s Attitude

Leaders have a positive, can-do attitude. They are optimistic and believe there is hidden talent in each person. Their enthusiasm creates energy and excitement. Leaders may get down from time to time but they never play the victim role. They take responsibility. They are confident in themselves and the people around them. They keep hope alive during difficult times. Presidential author and historian, Doris Kearns Goodwin said that no factor was more important to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s success than his confidence in himself and his unshakable belief in the American people. He had a remarkable capacity to transmit his cheerful strength to others, to make them believe that if they pulled together, everything would turn out all right.

It can be done!—Sign President Ronald Reagan kept on his desk in the Oval Office.

Dubbed The Great Communicator. Reagan was known for his optimism and ability to express ideas in a clear, eloquent, and quotable fashion. He honed these skills as a radio host, actor, television host, and politician. In response to being dubbed the Great Communicator, he said in his Farewell Address: I never thought it was my style or the words I used that made a difference: It was the content. I wasn’t a great communicator, but I communicated great things....

Attitude is everything! —Sign in red letters on the desk of Carol Leary, Ph.D., President, Bay Path College.

Carol states, If we greet every day, every person, every goal, and every challenge with a positive attitude, I believe we can live a rich, full life and accomplish some extraordinary things.

"No Whining"—Sign on the desk of James Parker, former CEO, Southwest Airlines.

Leaders don’t whine and complain. They don’t play
