The word for today is patience!
The true leader does not reach the finish line first.
In fact, he refuses to cross the finish line alone. Let me be clearer: the leader does not refuse to cross the finish line BUT he refuses to do it alone!
This is not because he is not fast enough or trained to win but because the true meaning of its success is plow through the finish line with his team and not alone.
True leaders lead their team with them and make sure to get to the finish line TOGETHER refusing to win the race alone!
This is where patience comes into action.
Be patient, decrease your pace, encourage those behind and wait for the team to get to the finish line together.
I rather want to cross the finish line with my team than alone because if I arrive alone who will I celebrate my victory with?
