The Leadership Stream is the real Fountain of Youth

By Dale Henry  bio

Sitting on my deck in Florida, I am reminded that on April 2, 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León and his crew became the first recorded Europeans to set eyes on Florida. Legend holds that they made this discovery while searching for the Fountain of Youth, a magical water source, supposedly capable of reversing aging and curing sickness. Maybe that is why the majority of Florida’s residence in the winter tends to be a tad older than all the people on the billboards that line the interstate of this beautiful part of the country.

So what is the best way to beat the aging process and return ourselves to being a healthier leader? You won’t have to go south – you just need to go to the Leadership Stream. The Stream will generate new enthusiasm and Leadership stamina.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself and dwelling on the negative. A good military friend of mine calls this FIDO: Fix it and drive on.

True leaders welcome change and see problems as challenges. If you think about it, only failure causes improvement – practice does not make perfect. It makes permanent.

Real leaders stay happy, and they don’t waste energy on things they cannot change. My Granny put it this way, “It takes little energy to stay happy, but it takes tons of effort to go from sad to happy.”

Embrace a kind, fair, and servant leadership style while being unafraid of sharing credit with everyone.  It sounds a bit unorthodox, but so does turning into a skid with an automobile. It is the only way to regain control.

Always look at risks as an opportunity to do something new, not a chance of failing.

Memory of others’ successes is much more important than the memory of your success. Cheerleaders make better allies.
