President Kimball on Leadership

“If you and I would be good leaders, we should reflect periodically on the qualities of those who have served, led, and taught us… Most often someone has served and helped us by giving us love and understanding, by taking time to assist us, and by showing us the way through the light of his own example.

I cannot stress enough, therefore, the importance of our doing these same things for those who now depend upon us, just as we have depended upon others to serve us in the past.“

—Spencer W. Kimball, “There Is Purpose in Life,” New Era, Sep 1974,  4

We would all do well to remember this – while looking at ourselves in the mirror and assessing ourselves is vital – doing so while reflecting on those that have come before us can likewise be very instructive.
