A LEADER LEADS

Have you ever heard someone else repeat one of your ideas as though it were their own? Did you ever notice a younger relative mimic your behaviour, perhaps by the way you dress or the music you listen to? Maybe you moved to a new neighbourhood and a bunch of hipsters followed. When we are young and inexperienced, we can react negatively to these situations. “Stop copying me! I was here first!”

As we mature, we start to see them in a different light. We understand that stepping up and helping is a service that leaders provide to the world. It’s our duty to do this – in big situations and small ones. If we expect to be leaders, we must see that thankless service comes with the job.  We must do what leaders do because it’s what leaders do – not for the credit, not for the thanks, not for the recognition. It is our duty.

I was captured in this quite funny pose during my public speaking performance, hence smile and take it as your #MidWeekEnergy for the rest of the week… full of leader’s tasks.
