This thought from van Gogh has a lot to say to leaders. It inspires me and it comforts me.

Leadership (at the least) is challenging and difficult. There are problems and struggles that just go with the leadership terrain. I'm sure you've heard the saying, "Leadership, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it." Well, it isn't easy and so everyone isn't doing it.

Leaders are those who accept the challenges and problems. The difficulties don't scare them away... In many cases, they are leading because of the problems.
