When it comes to motivational quotes many think that they are reserved for those who are at the bottom of the corporate ladder and need to continue keeping in the right mindset to move up the rungs of that ladder, but this is not the case. Even once you are at the top of the corporate ladder, it is important that you keep the right mindset.
Leaders have a doubly important job to keep the right mindset for the workplace. Not only do they need to keep their mind in the right place to make sure they are able to keep their great job and higher role, but also because they need to be caring for the people who are working below them.
One of the flaws that many leaders end up falling prey to is the fact that they get into that position of power and then let the power go to their head. They start to think that they can do whatever they want and do not have to worry about what those below them think because they're the boss. But that is not the way to have continued success.
Unhappy employees can make an entire company fail, so it is important that leaders keep the right mindset while at the top to keep their company doing well. So, where can you get the right motivation to make sure your mind is in the right place? Well, lucky for you, plenty of the leaders of the past have a lot of help to offer you in this arena. Try these motivational quotes on for size.
"Leadership: The art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it." - Dwight D. Eisenhower
"Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves." - Lao Tzu
Both of these motivational quotes have different messages about how to be a leader. In the first one, Eisenhower reminds that it is vital to make sure that you have your employees appreciate you, the company, and your common goal of making the company successful. By creating a positive work environment you are more likely to have employees that want to work and do well for you and the company.
The Lao Tzu motivational quote is a reminder to not forget where you came from. You were among the 'working stiffs' before, weren't you? Do you remember what that felt like. You need to remember all of the good and bad of being in that position. How can you accentuate the good parts of that time and bring that to the employees who are now working for you.
Meanwhile, you also should think about the things you did not like. What made you feel bad? Was there a boss who made you feel unimportant? Remember the things that made you unhappy at work, and made you have moments of not caring about the job. You want to brainstorm ways to keep as many of those things as you can from happening in your workplace.
By getting yourself in the right leadership mindset, you have the ability to become a great and respected leader of those who work under you. Leaders who have a staff who appreciate them and want to do well for them find more and more success each day. And the right motivational quote may be just what helps you become that leader.
