Charles Dickens

"Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, a touch that never hurts." 

English Novelist
1812 - 1870

It is easy in today's world to be a cynic.  No matter where you look you can find something wrong and someone to blame.  And creative leaders often see the disconnect between the ideal and reality a lot quicker than most.  It is easy to fall into a sarcastic, negative view of the world.  Every day we hear about corrupt politicians, false religious leaders, greedy business executives and rude arrogant sports figures.  

It takes a strong person not to have a hard heart — to keep the love flowing.  As creative leaders we need to keep our hearts open and giving.  We need an attitude of gratitude.  So cultivate the love in your heart.  Give thanks daily for what you have been given.

Creative leaders often are more sensitive than other people.  It is easy to have our feelings hurt.  We cannot let the negative attitudes and comments of others bring us down.  We must hold fast to what is best in the human race.  We must hold ourselves to high standards.
