“Change the way you


look at things,


and the things you


look at change.” 

—Dr. Wayne Dyer, from The Power of Intention  

     We’ve talked here about “change” not being a leadership word because true leaders recognize that change only has value when those being affected by it can choose it for themselves.  True corporate leaders.  True healthcare leaders.  True family leaders.  True government leaders.

     True leaders know that they cannot impose change, they can only inspire and motivate those who will benefit by change to step up to the plate and make it happen.  We’ve already addressed the incompetence of those in America who proclaim themselves leaders and who naively and unrealistically think they can simply dictate change. 

     Like the iron-hand rulers of Cuba, and Iran, and Russia, like Marxists and Communists.  Forget it!  These power-crazed Americans with agendas of change haven’t a clue about free democracy.  They can look and sound like the empty Hollywood celebrities, but they lack the understanding, skill and experience to be effective leaders.  They haven’t been there.  They haven’t done it. 

     Thomas Jefferson said “Vigilence is the price of freedom.”

     Those who espouse imposing “change” as a political platform fly in the face of the stability of our nation’s vigilence that is the very fiber of freedom. 

     Change, as Dr Dyer’s quote above reminds us, is really a matter of attitude more than action, perception more than taxation, intention more than condemnation.  It is winning by teamwork, which is what great leadership inspires. 

     Great Olympic coaches talk “TEAM” as the acronym for “Together Everyone Achieves More.”  Every period of great achievement in American history has been orchestrated not by imposed change, but by leaders who inspired success through teamwork.     Halalpiar

    Bumper sticker seen in Dallas,Texas :

    “I’ll keep my freedom, my guns, and my money, you can keep THE CHANGE”.
