William Arthur Ward said, “The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” Leaders, like everyone else, are exposed to changing circumstances and obstacles. There are no exemptions. But what sets the leader apart from others is her or her ability to adapt in a way that it causes no significant disruption because he can adjust the sails. When the adversities of life blow your way, adjust the sails. In doing so you are not acknowledging defeat you are just positioning yourself for a greater opportunity because of it. Adjust your attitude; adjust your sails!
