Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders – President Ronald Reagan
A nation’s time blossoms when a leader leads from experience and by wisdom. Ronald Reagan has driven a patriotic voyage across time to become labeled as one of the finest presidents our republic has ever had. He was the 40th President of the United States serving two terms from 1981 to 1989. He is the oldest president to assume the office at the young age of 69 years and 349 days. Ronald Reagan did more to shape the world’s image of America, in my opinion; the image that Ronald Reagan created is as equal to the original founding fathers’ image of our great republic. Ronald Reagan brought the world his Ten Leadership lessons that continue to inspire patriots of all ages today, regardless what nation you reside (Basili, 2004). Ronald Reagan’s Ten Leadership lessons surmised from the article written by Francios Basili, President, of Communicationideas.com. The ten key points belong to Ronald Reagan, the words that follow are my interpretation, please enjoy…
1- The Messenger, Not the Message – we often spend so much time perfecting the message the true meaning remains hidden. What is important is to find the connection to the messenger and bring about meanings never before imagined.
2- Have A Great Vision – vision is the life force that holds our cells together, it brings forces that can ally and nurture people as well.
3- Communicate Your Vision To Gain Followers – find those who see, feel, and breathe the same spirit that you do. What you will discover is that we all have much in common; the in common becomes the true vision.
4- Offer Hope, and Act to Achieve It – find the glass half-full, and soon it will be completely full. Believe and embrace in what you have, and disregard what you do not have.
5- Lead, Don’t Micromanage – A leader’s number one responsibility to make other leaders
6- Don’t Become a Prisoner of Your Own Perceptions – focus on the change and perceptions are only the starting point.
7- Admit Mistakes, Change Course, and Move On – learn, live, and embrace the mistakes as well, and focus on the learning power that occurred.
8- Use Humor – work hard, laugh often it is the best natural medicine to humanity.
9- Stay Human – it is how we started, make sure it is your middle and end game as well.
10- Lead a Balanced Life – make the time to do the things that are important to you as well as those things you have to do… because “Life is an Alternative Motive, so live life to the fullest!
What we continue to learn is by sheer power of the Internet. Information has become a sustaining oxygen, food, and common visions that are changing the face of nations. Citizens of the world have begun to breathe the breath of freedom, and much overdue newfound knowledge resulting in a liberated hope that is extraordinary and contagious. This contagiousness began to blossom between 1981 to 1989, and today it is bearing the fruit of liberty worldwide! Offer Hope, and Act to Achieve It – find the glass half-full, and soon it will be completely full!
