I just came back from working with some kids in middle school. Today we were talking about being yourself and not being a follower. A lot of time youth just want to fit in and not really do what they want…they just want to be seen as cool. I had to tell them, people are like that at all ages. It’s much easier to be a follower than to be a leader. I think people are scared of stepping out and being a leader. When you are a leader you have to take responsibility for your actions, decisions and statements that you make. When you follow you don’t have to take responsibilities for these things. Thurgood Marshall said…”It takes no courage to get in the back of a crowd and throw a rock.”
Let’s make leadership a LiFEstyle!
