In every situation that involves relating to another person, you have one of four fundamental choices available to you… win/lose, lose/win, lose/lose and win/win. Though each of these has value within a particular context, many people unconsciously choose from a belief that living in the world is a zero-sum game in which limited resources forces us to fight for our “share.” This causes people to make choices that have a potential short-term gain yet results in much greater long-term detrimental consequences. Genuine leadership on the other hand, must sometimes allow for short-term failure in order that the greater good eventually be realized, with patience, creativity and passion. If you want to lead, you must always be willing to recognize these four choices in your daily life and honestly reconcile how your choices are affecting your most important relationships.
