Leadership Minute: Keep Reaching


If you want to reach a goal, you must ‘see the reaching’ in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal. – Zig Ziglar

Leaders must be careful not to miss this important point. Too often they only see the goal or the reward of reaching their goal but they miss the reaching. The reaching is where goals become reality. Reaching is where dreams come alive. The reaching is where the sweat equity is built that produces the reward. Reaching is about sacrifices made, it’s about self-denial and delayed gratification. Reaching is the discipline of the leader. When you develop your reaching skills then everything else will eventually work itself out. Don’t stop dreaming. Don’t stop setting goals. And never stop reaching!
