The title is part of one of my favorite quotes, made most famous by Abraham Lincoln. Like many people, I have a strong need to be liked. I am a people pleaser and in a perfect world, I would be liked at all times. Sadly life doesn’t work that way. As a leader, you need to understand that you will be criticized often and people will often disagree with the actions you make or don’t make. It’s part of the game.
Before you take anything personally, remember the following quote:
“You can please some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time. But you cannot please all of the people, all of the time!” – John Lydgate.
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
