We Are All Leaders

We are all leaders. Leadership is about influence. Leadership begins with the self and a valuable component of strong leadership is love. We specialize in leading ourselves and make choices to positively influence our present and future. To love anyone else we need to start with loving ourselves and to lead anyone else we need to begin by leading ourselves.

This challenge is bigger than first perceived and many people fail to make it past the starting gate because of initial poor choices that lead to social debt. Playing catch up mode in life prevents compounding growth of success from happening, but success is not unreachable if we start pushing the 200 ton bus today.  The goal is to have something to show for life when it is all said and done.

Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is an important theory that outlines the progression of successful development. Briefly, we need basic needs such as food and water, and will strive to satisfy these needs at any cost.  Poverty creates violence and we would all become animalistic if cast to the lower level of the hierarchy.  Safety needs are next followed by the need to be liked by others or some would call it the need for love.  This is the level most of us attempt to fulfill and fall short because of choices or faulty intentions.

Strong leadership ability depends on satisfying this need and this need is fulfilled initially by loving ourselves. The following two levels are where history takes place and greatness is achieved. The need to be respected by others and the need to be accomplished are the fuel of higher level goals.  When Rocky reaches the top step we all feel his energy and identify with his determination because it is human nature to want to reach that top step. Leadership starts within us and providing others with positive influence is a priceless gift that transfers throughout generations.
