A leader that follows their passion
Life can be either too long or too short. Regardless, do your best to fulfill your life’s purpose. You may never know whom your purpose may be affecting. In leadership, it is important for you to know and follow your purpose in order for your followers to understand and walk in there’s. Many may think their life is about them; however it is about the person who it is affecting. In the recent deaths of Jobs, Cornelius and Houston, it is hard not to see the effects that it has on others. Skim the updates on the social media sites, read the local and national news lines and listen to conversations in the coffee shops. Many individuals may have been seen as business leaders and entertainers, but somewhere down the line, their career has had a significant impact on individuals who may have never even seen them in a boardroom or concert. One does not need to have a personal interaction to have an effect on others. What impact are you having on those close to you as well as those you are unaware of? Chase after your purpose as if your life as well as those around you life depends on it. Many may not understand your reasoning for resigning from a six-figure job to help youth in an impoverished neighborhood for minimum wage. Regardless of their perception, do not let your life be determined by the money in your bank account, the title on your door or the number of followers you have on twitter. Let your life speak about the passion you have for your life and those around you. Leadership is about stepping out there when everyone else thinks you should stay in the boat. Imagine the accomplishments that can be obtained if you have the faith of mustard seed.
