When you learn to have self respect and a deep understanding that we all as human beings desire to have the same things for ourselves. Prosperity, good health, love, respectful friendships and fulfillment. then you begin to invest your time in activities that promote that for yourselves and for others. There should always be a desire to elevate others into better situations and activities because without this chosen effort the opportunity to make proactive change for yourself will elude you. What you give you gain.

Here’s wishing you take a little time to reflect, with gratitude, on all that your leadershipprovides. Being a leader is an experience like no other, and it is important to be grateful for the journey itself.
These are a few reasons to be grateful to be a leader.
Leading the Shared Purpose

Thanks to your broad shoulders, emotional intelligence, and strength of will, you are in a position to accomplish a special shared purpose. You have a large hand in identifying, defining, influencing, and evolving the reason that the group has come together.
The use of pesticides has been increasing drastically in the last 10 years. However, unlike the traditional insecticides, the systemic pesticides don’t just remain on the plants exterior; they also get absorbed inside the plant’s tissues. So you cannot wash off systemic pesticides since they exist inside the plant’s tissue and not on the exterior.
Also, the four main systemic pesticides including Imidacloprid, Thiamethoxam, Clothianidin and Dinotefuran have nitroguanidine and neonicotinoid group of chemicals that have been linked to colony collapsed disorder of bees.

Our air pollution problem could be solved with some green slime.
Take a sample of air quality in any major city in the world during rush hour, and you’ll likely find it’s not the cleanest. Los Angeles is notorious for its smog as are Mexico City and Bejing, but scientist in Switzerland just may have a secret weapon — algae.
On a highway overpass in Geneva, Switzerland is a series of plastic tubes that contain a green slime that is helping to clean up the city’s air. This “little ecological miracle” as Gizmodo put it, like any plant, uses consumes sunlight and CO2 and through photosynthesis produces oxygen. Because a busy highway has a high volume of CO2 from the car emissions, it’s the perfect place for the algae to do its thing.
We all find a rut and lose inspiration. But getting your creative juices flowing again isn't as hard as you may think.
As an entrepreneur, I can tell you that starting, running and building a business goes well beyond skill, dedication and knowledge. Entrepreneurs and other business leaders must have tons of creativity for remaining relevant, for cultivating client relationships and for overcoming obstacles. And when we get too close to the forest of our own enterprise, it’s often challenging to see the trees clearly. That’s when we could find ourselves stuck in a creativity slump.
But not to worry. There are some simple strategies for sparking your creative flame:
1. Check in with your mission statement. Mission statements are often written and then forgotten. Keeping yours on hand for regular review keeps your mind focused on the “why” you’re in business. When you’re clear about the why (i.e., why your customers need what you provide), then it’s easier to come up with the “what” (i.e., what you provide, generated through creativity). If you don’t have a mission, now’s a good time to write one.
Why did no-till farming spread? This 2008 report (pdf) in Scientific American tells the broader back story. For most of human history, farmers plowed their soil to plant crops. The advent of tractors in the 20th century made it even easier to churn up fields. But as soil erosion became a massive environmental problem around the globe, that slowly changed.

The advent of new herbicides such as atrazine and paraquat in the 1940s and 1950s allowed farmers to kill weeds without plowing up more soil. And the invention of specialized seeding equipment in the 1960s allowed farmers to plant while barely disturbing the soil. Various federal government subsidies for soil conservation also gave farmers incentives to switch practices — particularly after the 1985 farm bill. So did higher oil prices.
