Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader

Remember that game? Well, a lot of us are still playing. 

It’s really easy to be a follower. We like to be pointed in the right direction, given a sense of purpose, and commended when we succeed. 

Unfortunately, this pattern tends to lead down a path lacking creativity and passion; two keys to happiness. 

So how do we break the cycle, become leaders, and unlock our creativity and passion?

All leaders need to adopt these two things into their mindset. 

Empathy

  • Listen to understand, not to respond. This is perhaps the most important advice.  Programming your brain in this way will help you generate empathy.

Courage

  • Take Action. Work on drawing your own opinions out of a situation and sharing them. You must believe in the idea that you are highly valuable to others. Developing this pattern of thinking will give you courage. 

These are just a couple tips to get you started. Growing yourself isn’t something that happens overnight, but changing your mindset bit-by-bit will have massive implications over time.

What’s the best way to find happiness? Make others happy. 

What’s the easiest way to do that? Be a leader.
