"Leadership" forms of

He fought for what was right-

John Adams,2nd president/ ;

always mindful of his reputation, knew that when he agreed to defend the British soldiers involved in the Boston Massacre, his reputation would be ruined, as the British were hated in Boston. But he knew it was the right thing to do. It was during the trial that Adams famously said, “Facts are stubborn things.” What I admire about Adams is that he, more than anyone, feared having his reputation tarnished, but he did not flinch when he was stuck between doing the right thing and maintaining his reputation.

He loved his wife- There is perhaps no greater love story than that of John and Abigail Adams. Abigail was his love, his mentor, his confidant, and he shared everything with her. His marriage with Abigail is perhaps the single greatest factor in his success as a leader. He, as every leader should do, always sought council from others. But his most valued counsel just happened to be his best friend and spouse. Adams never operated in a bubble and neither should you.

-roots-need for,example FDR, had great wife.

He had unwavering integrity- Adams unwavering integrity stands apart when contrasted to the very publicly documented failings of so many of our leaders today. There is no evidence of Adams ever being unfaithful to Abigail while spending years in Europe away from her. He was also known for keeping detailed reports of all his expenditures while overseas on congressional money when many of his contemporaries did not. Many people disliked Adams for his political views, but they never could say that he was not a man of integrity.

John Quincy Adams was our country's sixth president, the son of Abigail Adams and John Adams, our second president. This is one of the things he had to say on the subject of leadership:

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."



"...Inspire others to dream more…"

Dreaming describes leaders imagining things that might be, that don't currently exist — whether it's a new product or service, a new entity, a new solution to a problem, a better process, or a healthier, stronger company, community or country. Dreaming in this context is the active and purposeful use of our imagination, our creativity and our intuition. Oftentimes, great leaders are called "visionaries" because they are comfortable exploring the unknown, thinking and sensing what might be possible, rather than being content with the status quo. Innovation and aspiration are a leader's metier.



"...Inspire others to learn more…"

Learning is one of the hallmarks of an inquiring mind, the active search for new knowledge and skills. Learning requires a willingness to move beyond familiar levels of understanding and being able to say, “I don't know all there is to know. I have something to learn." Leaders are continual learners, and their example of personal and professional growth can inspire others to do the same. Learning more also describes the leadership quality of having an open mind, genuinely believing that others' viewpoints and ideas are of value, seeking input and honest feedback.



"...Inspire others to do more…"

Leaders are energetic and productive and usually accomplish a great deal. They have systems for organizing and planning, and know how to work skillfully with others in an efficient and effective way. They know how to delegate, which is another aspect of productivity. They also accomplish more because they set high standards for themselves, and are not content with mediocrity. Again, example is the best teacher, and their willingness to work hard, be diligent, and persevere is a great example for others, who in turn want to make a greater contribution, to be part of making things happen



"..Inspire others to become more…"

Becoming more is a term that describes the concept of growth and expansion. Leaders are constantly expanding their capacity to grow in their scope and depth of abilities. It may include becoming a more effective public speaker, a more skilled listener, or a better meeting manager, just to cite a few examples. Over time and with the seasoning of experience, the leader becomes more of his or her authentic self and expresses more of his or her essential talents and character. Just as an acorn is a seed, it "becomes more" by growing into an oak tree.



---------------I do believe; As a Society, World,State,Country, to evolve safely,it  is very important that unlike the past-------------------------

I think we are Living by ways that have not Evolved with the Times;

At this Time,if nothing else by Honor and Self; Unless a Individual has become very "Self-Actualized",thus spiritual,thus free from greed,corruption and it's many Forms.

 If Individuals whom wish to seek High Places, this their "Obiligation"


People must and should 


By Petition and peacefully

Demand Our Leaders be only Highly Self-Actualized,or the Corruption will continue.

Right to petition

The right to petition government for redress of grievances is the right to make a complaint to, or seek the assistance of, one's government, without fear of punishment or reprisals. The Article 44 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union ensures the right to petition to the European Parliament.
Right to petition in the United States - Wikipedia;    In the United States the right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging "the right of the people...to petition the Government for a redress of grievances". Although often overlooked in favor of other more famous freedoms, and sometimes taken for granted, many other civil liberties are enforceable against the government only by exercising this basic right. The right to petition is regarded as fundament


Requirements to be a senator in Congress

According to the Constitution, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives must be at least 25 years old, a U.S. citizen for at least seven years and a resident of a state. The Constitution does not require a representative to live in the congressional district he represents.


The Constitution gives three eligibility requirements to be president: one must be 35 years of age, a resident within the United States for 14 years, and a natural born Citizen, a term not defined in the Constitution.






----------------------I do believe a "fundament"of all humans is "breaking free from the Old,the Past--------------------------

Yet a great Paradox of the looking back at the Past, is seeing it as Old ,outdated ,yet unknowingly repeating it-----For Example;


        Simply because the "Berdache Ways" and the Zuni culture; is fresh on my mind researching it, We tend to maybe see their ways old out dated, yet in essense they are the Foundation of New Ways.,and simply need to be adapted to the Present

         It is Amazing to me that so many Old cultures, had adapted to people like myself,nutured us as different, yet found a place in society,knew their value etc.

--------------------Yet lets say we where Zuni people looking at America Today as a Whole------------------------------------------------------------

      What might they think of it; Our Way?;

        As we all do as Humans,we Compare, so if the compare say their social aspect to ours; They might say "the American ways, could be,yet is not like our way.

From what I know of the Zuni peoples, is mainly from reading "Patterns of Culture", which shows how they nutured the individual according to their Nature, knowing this was essential for a balanced healthy society.


"The study of the social patterns in certain so-called primitive cultures, however, seems to have made it sufficiently evident that such a defeatist view is wholly unwarranted. Whoever is concerned with this problem, a crucial one in the study of religion as such, is advised to read the description of the Pueblo Indians in Ruth Benedict’s book, Patterns of Culture. Under the hardest living conditions, this tribe has apparently accomplished the difficult task of delivering its people from the scourge of competitive spirit and of fostering in it a temperate, cooperative conduct of life, free of external pressure and without any curtailment of happiness."-Albert Einstein

Personally I feel a" Idea" stuck in society of America, is some concreted form of "Morality", that seems to be "Just is", don't know how "Just is", 

no one knows where these "Morals" exactly came from "JUST IS"







------A Question?  does any one have a copy of this "Just Is ", so we all may read?-------

I live in state of Iowa, thus use this simply as example;

     GOP Senate Candidate Has Self-Contradictory Take On Gay Marriage   ; 


        "Iowa state Senator and U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst (R) says she thinks the legality of same-sex marriage should be left up to the states — but would still support a federal ban on gay marriage if one were proposed." 


               I personally am quite neutral as to Topic (if I want to be with a male as a partner,I simply will),no law needs to tell me my                      morals,etc.


                Yet what I see here is a individual who is holding a position of" Highest in the Land status", just show that, she can't or does not seem to think it nessary to explain on how in her very own mind, come to speak these words, what is going on in her own Mind, to come to this "Idea"?

                 Does she know she just Banned the marriges of many native American peoples culture? if she supports a federal ban.


                  What if she would have said ; " I have a group of people working on the "idea of creating,a alternative,say a;                                                    "Third-gender,marriage type agreement aims at same-sex relations" instead?




---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We must appoint Leaders whom can see the "Whole", and the "Individual" as One, though Joni is most likely a very good person, I know by this one comment,  She is not highly self actualized, or she wouldn't even been able to make the statement she made.

       Now, because she made her stance, her ego will strive to protect her stance,,,,to change it, one must become "Meek"

            Like in the Bible    "The Meek shall inherit, the meek are the humble,the self-actualized, those whom any any moment can admit they where incorrect, made the wrong choice,  when it occurs, without Hesitation


-----------------One can not be self-actualized to any high degree, if not "Meek"(humble)------------------------------------------

Believe me being as a human being whom has struggled a life time accepting that I am a male, yet seeks to be in the role of that of the "Traditional Female role", wishing to be with a male whom desires to be in the "Traditional male role"

   I had to become Humble or Meek, yet in every day life, not at all related to my sexual orientation, I strive to be humble,honest,seek on truth "Meek",,,I do know, in my mind,   say I made a mistake, I know it, I have to admit it quickly, without Hesitation, or else my ego will try make any excuse to say it's ok, I'm Right!,   we can't submit to our Ego!


    Some have said we need ; early on to be taught what "Meek/Humble" really mean,  especially the bible's idea, as     a Christian orient society currently at 60-70%.
