Ten Commandents of Leadership

These are St. Edward Wrestling Coach Howard Ferguson’s "Paradoxical Commandments of Leadership."

 

1. People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

3. If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

4. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

5. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable .
Be honest and frank anyway.

6. The biggest men with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest man with the smallest mind.
Think big anyway.

7. People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

8. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

9. People really need help, but may attack you if you do help them.
Help them anyway.

10. Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
