Success is most often described as the achievement of an objective. President Theodore Roosevelt, a model of presidential success, is often studied for his accomplishments. He is admired for his strength and honor in leading the United States to the status of a world power.
However it was Eleanor Roosevelt, the First Lady, who brought the opportunity for the entire world to hope for the ability to realize even the simplest of goals in their life with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
It was Eleanor’s determination that “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” that has brought the hope of a greater quality of life and a future of success to more than just the shores of the United States; in fact the entire world.
Quality, genuineness, truth, and a desire to serve have been the storyline of success for leaders such as Eleanor. She was daunted by no man. Always she surrounded herself with the tools and people qualified to successfully accomplish her goals; only the best would serve her missions.
Taking this type of leadership model to heart, we can each examine our goals and objectives to measure our own successes. As Eleanor said,
“The destiny of human rights is in the hands of all our citizens in all our communities.”
The outcome of our efforts in business and in service is determined by our choices. Choose to stand on quality and service, and success is a guaranteed outcome. Choose wisely, and only the best.
