Two faces of leadership
True leaders are missed; corrupt officials are dismissed.
Real leaders want to serve; fake leaders want to be served.
Leaders taste happiness in helping others. Self-centered people don’t want to be bothered.
Real public servants go beyond duty; selfish officials only work for their salary and more money.
Service means doing what needs to be done; playing means only doing what is fun.
Leaders inspire others by their good example. Selfish officials create anxiety and suffering.
A leader serves and cares; a fake leader doesn’t want to really share.
A real leader knows it is better to give than to receive; a selfish person earns wealth because he deceives.
It is better to be an honest public servant than a despised, self-serving official.
The rewards of honest servants are not of this world. They see what is precious, what is real and what is beyond the material dimension!
