Recently I was talking to a LYS Principal, now in his second year. He asked me a great question, “Does the fear ever go away.”
My answer was “No. It just shifts.”
The first year principal lives with the constant fear of not knowing.
The second year principal lives with the constant fear of knowing.
After year two, the principal lives with the constant fear of lost opportunity.
I closed with this, “Embrace the fear. It is what makes the principalship so worthwhile. You get to face your fear, beat your fear, and make the World a better place while you do it. You get to be the Man (Woman) in the Arena. It is an awesome responsibility, afforded to very few. “
Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
