Lead to Succeed: The Future Starts Now

The author of ​Developing the Leader Within You 2.0​, John C. Maxwell says, “Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.” Leadership ties us all together: athletic teams, high school clubs, civic organizations, families, politics, and large corporations. The qualities of a leader are within us all; my goal is to help Arkansans discover their potential to be an outstanding leader.

It is time we change the connotation of the word “leader”; it should be more than a position, it should be a lifestyle. Our lives are filled with busy schedules, daunting tasks, and pressures that can become burdens. But sadly, we lack genuine leadership. As a titleholder it is my duty to challenge those around me, lead by example, and help them accomplish their goals.

Lead to Succeed: The Future Starts Now​ can be implemented into all age groups following these simple steps:

  1. Learn your strengths and weaknesses
  2. Gain experience
  3. Be open-minded
  4. Lead by example

Leadership sets you apart; your ability to lead could be the difference in your team winning or losing, getting an officer position in a school club or even landing your dream job. The future starts now, let’s dream bigger, do more, and lead to succeed each and every day!
