The Girl Scouts of the USA – an American Way of Life – Leadership at work.
The community projects that these young women have completed and their aspirations is staggering.
They are already leaders.
Simply look into the eyes of these young women. There is a fire and a spirit that glows within them that makes you shiver and tingle!
Many blogs talk about leadership. This is what I know.
Leadership is a word that many people use. To me it is about the heart and soul and you’re very breath- as your 6th President John Quincy Adams said so well
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
So leadership is about dreaming a future, a vision and doing all that you can to make it happen.
That is why the words, that the founder of Girl Scouts, are still so relevant nearly 100 years later.
Courage – to go places where others fear to go/to do things that others are afraid to do.
Confidence – in your inner self, and believing that you can make a difference in this world whatever the adversity.
Character – To be true to yourself and those around you when others falter.
These are deep rooted values and a passion the founder of the Girl Scouts had, not simply words, she knew that these values were not easily come by, and she knew what that this world needed in its young women.
These values together with connecting and collaboration create communities that take action to be the change, to make the dust not eat the dust.
This is the Girls Scouts of the USA that Juliette Gordon Low dreamed it to be – She would be proud of what has transpired in the last 99 years of Girl Scouting.
I truly believe that the Girl Scouts of USA are an integral part of American Life.
Girl Scouts of the USA You rock!
