based on our past experiences, see what we can change, learn, create, to achieve
the results that matter.

to start building the future we want? Do I have enough confidence to follow my

"The leader has more work to choose

victim of circumstance and began to participate in its creation ... Leadership
is to create a field in which human beings continually deepen their

was be aware of their behavior. Every time we felt he had done harm to a person
driving a nail into the fence of his house. The son accepted the challenge and
began to become more aware of their actions.
Following the advice of his father, began to put nails with a hammer every time
you hurt, abused a person or not respected. After a time the child left to put
nails into the fence, because it was aware of his actions and was good to
people. Then he asked his father: and now what?
The father responded by saying that for every act of service that performs well
and takes out a nail from the fence. The child again accepted the challenge and
began gradually to remove the nails. He was awake, was aware and also dedicated
to helping people. In a short time managed to get all the nails. Content, where

can not be leaders if we do not have the capacity to lead first to ourselves.
Leadership is a spiral path that goes from the inside out. If a pond that feeds
into a river is not deep, if you have little water, the river can not irrigate
the fields and you can not plant or harvest. Likewise, if the person has first
inner depth level, you can not irrigate a constructive leadership and grow
people who follow it.
