CREATING AND MANAGING EFFECTIVE TEAMS: It Has Been Said “Be a Leader, Not a Follower.”

Creating and Managing Effective Teams with David Muraco

The Bottom Line:

• Leaders are not born they are made

• Leadership is a choice you must make in order to be one.

I have spent most of my life with the idea that you need to be a leader not a follower in order to get the things you want out of life. We have talked in past articles about what being a leader is, and that it is a choice not something you are born with. This time I really want to pull apart the sentence “Be a leader, not a follower.” As this New Year begins I want to challenge you to be a follower more now than ever before. You see the meaning we give words make them stronger or weaker than they really are. For most of you when you see the sentence, I challenge you to be a follower, start to think I must be crazy. By definition leader means a person who rules or guides or inspires others and follower means a person who accepts the leadership of another. But if you look deeper you can find even more then what is just on the surface.

Another definition for leadership is a way which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task and for follower it is someone who travels behind or pursues another. The surface of being a leader, follower or life in general is just that the surface. With the New Year comes new challenges and with that should come new ways to approach these challenges. I know where you’re at, I do. You feel scared, afraid, unsure, and most of all stuck. You must go past the surface and find what is lying inside all of us, the follower.

Follow your Heart

Follow your Passion

Follow your Purpose

Follow your Soul

Follow your True Love

For that will make you a Leader. Give yourself permission to dream and whatever that dream is follow it. You cannot lead a single person until you lead yourself and the best way to do that is to follow your heart. It may lead you down a path of hurt and challenges, but remember it is only on the surface. To dig down deep you must follow the path and take all the challenges in order to reap all of the glory. I ask you now in these uncertain times more than ever before follow. Follow your dreams for they will lead you to where ever it is you want to go.

Remember, be positive, be real and live your life In The Zone.
