It’s easier to follow than it is to lead.
When things go wrong for a follower, they can blame the one they're following.
A leader, on the other hand, is required to think ahead, to plan and to risk falling short. A leader is responsible for the outcome. That's why many of us are happy to keep following.
We use those who have gone before us as a guru rather than a guide. We settle for trying to recreate our version of what what they've created rather than let them show us what’s possible when we have the courage to take a risk, with our own unique vision.
It’s time for you to stop doing what you’re told.
It’s time to try and do it your way.
Maybe you can teach us something.
We need you to lead us.
