“Fear is a catalyst” It inspires us. It cripples us at times. It excites and frightens us, but most of all; it’s within each of us. How we deal with that fear is what often separates the real heros. Mike Monahan realized when he landed in Vietnam on May 14, 1969 that fear wasn’t going away, so he learned to channel it to his benefit.
In his book – From The Jungle To The Boardroom – Mike frames three critical leadership questions that challenge each of us to step up and lead ourselves before we can lead anyone else. Am I prepared? Am I safe? Am I alone? As I approached these questions, I quickly realized that ‘the thinking process’ for me was just as inspiring as any answers that evolved.
As Mike likes to say, “When life changes, no one will ask you, ‘Are you prepared?'”
