Leading On

29 Jan

There are many kinds of leaders in the world. There are kings and magistrates, presidents and ambassadors, and different influential and powerful individuals. The world is filled with billions of people and when there are righteous, honest, valiant leaders to help them, much good can be accomplished. In our personal lives there are people around us who can teach us things and show us the way when we’re confused or lost. They may not be formal leaders but they are available when we need help finding the way forward. While we depend on them at one time or another, we are all leaders in our own way. We all have gifts to share but we can only lead as far as we’ve gone. We can’t share what we don’t possess, and there is no way to teach someone something we don’t know. Before we can have influence and share our knowledge, we have to gain it. Everything we do teaches us something and if we expand our reach and step beyond where we are, we learn more and gain greater skills and insight. Knowledge brings confidence and helps us move ahead with clarity and power. When we share that knowledge with others and push forward toward a goal, there is nothing that can keep us from success. We may not think of ourselves as leaders, but everything we do changes the world in some way. By sharing what we know we can expand our influence and reach every goal we set.

If we want to lead those around us, we must be willing to step forward into the unknown and forge the way ahead. What we know is comfortable and predictable but can never afford great change or growth to enter our lives. If we stay within our comfort zones, we may have an easier time but we won’t experience the thrill of knowing what we can accomplish. We are capable of amazing experiences if we allow ourselves to step beyond where we are. A new road will take us to new destinations that will enrich us and broaden our understanding of life. Once we embrace the road ahead, we can show others the way forward and reach any destination we desire.

Everything we do is visible and open to those around us. We are setting an example with each choice we make. If we live true to the standards we’ve set for ourselves, our integrity and honesty will impact those around us and may affect the decisions they make. They will learn to trust us and rely on our judgement and wisdom. We can change the world by choosing to be valiant and true in every decision. There is greatness inside us and we can make good, strong choices that guide our lives and lead others toward excellence.

Today if you want more experiences in your life, step away from what you know and try something new. Choose a new path that will take you somewhere different. Make the unfamiliar yours and then share it with those around you. Take control and show others the way. Life is filled with experiences that will enhance and delight you. Do everything you dream and be the person you most want to be. The whole world is there waiting and everything is possible.
