To me, that’s not only inspiring, but a testament to how we should all be. Not all of us are born leaders – heck, some of us (like me) don’t need to be leaders at all! Some of us do better behind the scenes, or in smaller groups, or on our own, and that’s ok. The key is to be honest with ourselves in knowing what kind of person we are, and committing to do the best we can with it. I know that droves of people will never follow me – heck, most people don’t even listen to me – but if I can inspire them to think or act in ways that benefit themselves, then that’s a gift unto itself. Lots of people can start discussions, present arguments, or mediate things, but how many people do you know that can actually show or tell you something that makes you think? Not in a chastising way, but in a way that makes you truly consider things? That’s more rare.
Maybe you aren’t a leader, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t important. If you’re a believer then people are watching you, whether you realize it or not. Live a good example. They may not talk about it, but it’s likely inspiring them by planting seeds of thought that wouldn’t have existed if you hadn’t done or said something that made them see things differently.
That's all today. Take care, and have a great week.
