Leadership lessons … What are you holding on to?


    The famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a picture of him sleeping in the street under his famous bronze statue, and wrote sadly (How times changed).

    The reason he wrote the sentence was not only because he was old, but because when the governor of California opened the hotel with the statue in front of him. The hotel officials told Arnold: “At any time you can come and have a room reserved in your name”.

    The reality of life came in when Arnold left Government and went to the hotel, the administration refused to give him a room arguing that the hotel was fully booked.

    Though he could afford other hotels but he wanted leaders to learn a great lesson.
    He brought a cover and slept under the statue and asked people to imagine it. He wants to convey a message that when he was in a position they were praising him, and when he lost this position they forgot and did not fulfill their promise to him. Yes, times have changed.

    Great lesson:
    Why are you holding on to that position as if it’s for eternity, every stage in life is timed and one day it will elapse with another person taking over. All of this power drunkenness will soon fade away and loose it’s strength. Don’t live your life putting all your trust in people when the ovation is high because if you leave your position today, those you think will die for you will be the first to cast the stone! Only God never fails
