The conscious leader responds to what wants to happen.

He knows that life is a process of give and take. You can’t launch yourself like a missile (thanks David Whyte) at life and think it will all go your way. Every step you take there is an unfolding; things change and you have to respond in the best way to keep you moving in the same direction.

The conscious leader knows that obstacles are not signs. He also knows that you shouldn’t flog a dead horse. He listens carefully to his own conscience before he decides what he’s dealing with. He does not give up easily and say, “It’s a sign.” He knocks on the door many times and continues knocking, even while he doubts. Only when he is certain does he respond by moving to another door.
