This came across my desk today and I thought I would pass along the wealth.  Enjoy!

“Leaders, for some reason, see a bright future in the thickest fog… As Marcus Buckingham observes in The One Thing You Need to Know, ‘The opposite of a leader isn’t a follower. The opposite of a leader is a pessimist.’ The link between optimism and inspiration is direct and immediate: Thinking optimistically will make you feel better about yourself. Speaking optimistically will give others the confidence to follow your vision.”

Good Stuff!!!  Optimism goes a long way, but optimism with God’s Vision goes miles further.
