What makes us, as human being stand up, defy the comfortable, and declare to the world, "I will lead?" Is this learned or an inherit trait?
While society wrestles with these big questions, I write this willing and waiting to lead. I choose this way, because of a desire to serve my fellow man. I know I have been blessed with unique talents that could be used to fulfill selfish aims. There is no way I could find satisfaction in that. My willingness to stand up was nurtured from life experiences and a firm belief that I have the power to make a difference.
Leading is not about feeding my ego, but I am fully aware some ego is needed to lead. Without a doubt, I feel proud when I lead and direct. Hearing praise is like a drug. I need it, but it is not why the job is done. The work is about those on the receiving end. It is about their needs and shifting the direction of their lives toward the most positive outcome.
This brings me to the goal: To be called a visionary, but again, not for my own benefit. I want to lead organizations and volunteer groups, because I am creative, a problem solver and possess an ability to bring people together around a common goal. If I can use those talents to create a vision and move the needle toward a more just world, I would die calling this life well lived.
Thanks for entering my world,
