Leading Without Followers

December 21, 2015 — 3 Comments

Would you like to see something different being created on this planet of ours?

I know I do. And I know it’s possible. What about you?

What do you know, that you’ve been pretending not to know, or denying that you know, that if you allowed yourself to know it, would change everything in our world for the greater?

Would you be willing to know it, create it, and lead your life, and this planet, to something greater?

A leader knows where they must go and is willing to go there even if nobody gets it, nobody understands it, and nobody follows.

If we’re truly going to change the face of this planet, we need to step up and have a voice.  And by voice, I don’t mean shouting from the rooftops. You may not even have to say a word. What can your very presence invite everyone around you to?

I recently spoke at an event, Wisdom Stockholm, talking about our capacity to shape the planet’s future and tools to assist in choosing it.  Click HERE or below to watch the video of my talk below.

True leaders don’t create followers. They create leaders.

Is now the time to take the lead, without expecting anyone to follow, and create what you know is possible in the world?

You can be a voice for the world. You, being you, is a contribution that can not only change someone’s world, but also change the planet.

Until next time,

Are you your name? Are you your body? Or your job? Your gender? The family you came from? The color of your skin?

Or, are you much, much, greater than all of those definitions? Are you actually an infinite being?

We live in a world where we keep trying to define us and everyone else. Well, here’s the thing – definition always creates limitation.

Definitions and labels confine and limit us. When we judge ourselves or others based on labels, we are choosing to separate; we are choosing finiteness.

It’s our definition of us, and the ones we buy from other people, that stop us. Because it’s our definitions of us and others that lead to judgment. And judgment is the biggest killer on the planet.

As I watched this potent and moving video, I asked myself some questions:

What if we no longer chose smallness over greatness?
What would our world look like without separation, without labels, without judgment?

As Prince Ea says in the video – “When there’s division, there will be conflict.” What if by ending the division and the separation, the conflicts that are occurring all over the world could end?

I ask you my friends, what else do you know is possible here, on this planet of ours? What would you like to choose? What choices could you make today to create a world you’d like to live in?

Awhile back, I did a google hangout on “The Potency of Being Undefined”. Imagine for a moment if you had no name, no race, no past and no definitions of who, what, when, where, how and why you were supposed to be? If you no longer had to look for a definition of yourself, or others, what possibilities would be available that you haven’t yet chosen?

You see, it’s our definition of us, that we we’re not willing to go beyond, that leads to the limited path that we can walk rather than an expansive path of infinite possibilities.

Which one would you like to choose my friends? What else do you know is possible?

Until next time,
