When it comes to leaders, we often forget that the word is active.

We cannot be leaders without leading. And we cannot lead without actively doing.

So why is it that so many people today are in leadership positions, and they do nothing but follow?

They follow trends. And money. And history. They even make informed, relevant decisions with great information that forces them to fall in line behind others.

So why even call them “leaders”?

Leaders lead. They create opportunity when there is little or none. They establish respect based on inspiration or ability, not on fear.

Choose today to lead or you will be forced to follow.

Make sense?
