You’re a Leader, Charlie Brown (Executive Edition)
“Your ability to take charge, to lead, to get the best out of yourself and others, is vital to you achieving your full potential in life.”
A lesson from Charlie Brown on perseverance…
I know what you’re thinking: Charlie Brown is giving advice on being a leader? I’m as surprised as you are. I mean, I’m a pretty average kid—below average, most days. And I lose more times than I win.
But I’ve hit a game-winning home run, and I even won a game of marbles once, so I know what winning feels like. That next victory could be just around the corner… one more try away. So I keep trying.
Good grief—I think that could be it! So I keep trying.
On any given day, we can be as shy and withdrawn as Charlie Brown, as pushy as Lucy, as introspective as Linus, as raucous as Peppermint Patty, as zealous as Schroeder, as sunny as Sally, or as self-absorbed as Snoopy.
Yet, no matter our mood, each and every day, we all strive to be leaders in our fields, to our family, or of our own goals. Reflecting on what the Peanuts gang can teach us, we can unlock inspiration for each day of our lives.
