from Developing the Leader within You: John Maxwell - 2

Here’s another of my favourite quotes from John Maxwell …

Become Character Driven instead of Emotion Driven

Character Driven People

Do right, then feel good
Are commitment driven
Make principle based decisions

Action controls attitude
Believe it, then see it
Create momentum
Ask ‘What are my responsibilities?’

Continue when problems arise
Are steady
Are leaders

Emotion Driven People

Feel good, then do right
Are convenience driven
Make popular based decisions
Attitude controls action
See it, then believe it
Wait for momentum
Ask ‘What are my rights?’
Quit when problems arise
Are moody
Are followers

As you look at the above, which list describes you?
