Words to live by, even if you might need constant reminders of how important you are and how valuable your contributions are not only to your team but to the organization.
"Everything you will ever do as a leader is based on one audacious assumption.
It’s the assumption that you matter.
Before you can lead others, you have to lead yourself and believe that you can have a
positive impact on others. You have to believe that your words can inspire and your actions
can move others. You have to believe that what you do counts for something. If you
don’t, you won’t even try. Leadership begins with you."
