Favorite Quotes from Tom Selleck

“And besides, because of all she has accomplished, Barbara Jordan has always been a hero of mine” – Tom Selleck

“Having had that experience… I think, what modern culture wants to see is the relationship with the woman.” – Tom Selleck

“I praise CBS for taking a risk, which is always the price you pay for the opportunity. This is not a standard movie of the week storytelling. I think movies of the week have fallen into a niche and that isn’t my niche” – Tom Selleck

3 Leadership Lessons from Tom Selleck 

Now that you know all about Tom Selleck’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the leadership lessons we can learn from him:

 

1. Hunt for the Truth

Wherever the hunt takes you. Both private investigator Thomas Magnum and lifelong cop Frank Reagan hunt the truth. And they don’t stop until they find it. Then the hard part: accepting the truth. Frequently, the biggest obstacles Magnum and Reagan face is emotional — someone they liked and trusted turns out to be a bad guy.

 

2. Be True to Yourself

In most episodes of Magnum, P.I. or Blue Bloods, Selleck’s character has a moment of self-revelation. An instant where he has to admit he was wrong or had been duped, misplaced his trust or acted out of personal selfishness.

Because this is television, and because Magnum and Reagan are heroes, they admit what they’ve done. This may sound awfully high-minded, but it’s not. In 1797, George Washington voluntarily stepped down as the first President of the United States.

The American people wanted him to stay. Washington knew that retiring was the right thing to do.

 

3. Encourage Growth in Others

Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
