I recently came to the conclusion that people in leadership roles either makes things better, worse, or the keep them the same and anything less than better is no longer acceptable for me. Don't we all want to be better at our core? I have met few people in my life that just want to exist. If you ask enough questions and listen, you will find that most people want to be the best versions of themselves. I'm not talking about being rich or famous or in charge even. Being the best version of yourself has nothing to do with those things as they may or may not and usually not lead to being famous, rich or in charge. What being the best version of yourself guarantees is happiness, fulfillment and peace of mind. It leads to a zest for living and as a result it spurs those around you on. The impact is positive and momentous.
The world in my opinion, revolves around those in leadership roles, what they do and don't do. What they are able to get others to do. Leaders have the power to inspire growth and development which has a domino effect. Poor leadership has a domino effect as well, it can spread like cancer, destroying everything it's path. Poor leadership depletes the strongest of leaders if they remain connected to the poor leader long enough. If you are reading this, it is my hope that you are under the influence of a great leader and that you yourself are leading others in a direction that empowers them to be the best version of themselves.
Again...what kind of leader are you?
