His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Friday, shared a video on Instagram under the hashtag #FlashesofLeadership in which he said, “When the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids, they did not imagine that they would stand still more than 5,000 later.
They achieved that without looking into the future.
When Leonardo Da Vinci painted the Mona Liza, he did not expect that it would be one of the most famous paintings in the history.
He achieved that without looking into the future. We on the other hand want to achieve and plan for the future. Do not focus on our achievements, look at what we can achieve in the future.”
Last week, Sheikh Mohammed recalled the meeting that took place between the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, in Arqoub AlSidira”, where they agreed to establish the UAE.
Then, they called on the rest of the emirates to join them, stressing that the bond between the two of leaders was very strong.
By his voice, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid said, “What happened in that meeting was unexpected. We heard Sheikh Rashid told Sheikh Zayed with God’s blessing you will be the President. And Sheikh Zayed responded saying with God’s blessing, we will lay the foundation.” Sheikh Mohammed continued, “No one yet knew how close they were. They had great respect for one another. And trusted each other blindly.”
The Vice President of the UAE launched the #FlashesofLeadership on his Instagram account to share part of his life, practical experiences, and leadership vision with the public.
He keeps sharing inspirational quotes and anecdotes on social media platforms.
