Leaders are people who clearly delineate what they want and then go ahead with persistence, dedication, imagination and a sense of fun to do whatever it takes to get there. And when the price is paid, life yields its abundant rewards. That’s the kind of leader you and I are meant to be.

'Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap -- let it be taught in schools, in seminaries and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books and in Almanacs; -- let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls and enforced in courts of justice. And in short let it become the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay, of all sexes and tongues, and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.'
- Abraham Lincoln

From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual,” by Arnold Kunst

God's peace awaits my pleasure - it can then transform me, and through me this dngerously restless, rootless, chaotic world. I have but to invite God in. I have but to take the leaps He calls me to, certain that, as He promised He would, He will catch me before I hurt myself. I have but to surrender and be free.

Discuss, as calmly as possible, ‘What’s the worst possible thing that could happen here?’ See the big picture – either things aren’t as bad as you thought and you should go ahead, OR things really could go from bad to worse and maybe you need to cut your loses right now and get out.
Conclusion: some bridges need to be crossed, others to be burnt.
