Leaders

Myron Rush in the now out-of-print The New Leader provides some challenging standards for would-be leaders:

  • You must be willing to stand alone.
  • You must be willing  to go against public opinion for what you believe.
  • you must be willing to risk failure.
  • you must become master of your emotions.
  • you must strive to remain above reproach.
  • You must be willing to make decisions others do not want to make.
  • You must be willing to say “no” at times, even when you’d like to say “yes”.
  • You must be willing to sacrifice personal interests for the good of the group.
  • You must never be content with the average, you must always strive for the best.
  • People must be more important to you than possessions.
  • You will have to work harder to keep your life in balance than people do who are not leaders.
