“Do not follow the path. Go where there is no path to begin the trail.” -Ashanti proverb.
It takes vision, courage and conviction to make a new way out of what appears to be no way. A great leader is usually a trailblazer.
A trailblazer, paves the way for future generations with words of motivation and clear courageous action.
Trailblazers characteristically work harder than their counterparts, keep true to their values and place high levels of trust in colleagues. Showing a clear vision of where they want to get to, they explain the big picture and empower others to fill in the details. A creative dissatisfaction leads them to be innovative and take calculated risks, pushing for progress towards a vision for their area of service or local communities. They also show a sense of humility and attribute their success to luck and the quality of those around them.
“You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.” -Les Brown
