I am a guy who has read a lot of leadership books, joined a few organizations, volunteered, coached and mentored.
I have tried, failed, failed to try, got back up, dusted myself off, won a few, lost more and I am still at it.
I am trying to figure out what “It” is; thus I believe that the truth is out there but you have to search for “It”
I believe everyone has a purpose, and in searching for the truth you will find your purpose. I believe that once you find your purpose, you have to act to fulfill your purpose. I believe the best way to fulfill your purpose is to allow yourself to be coached by someone who is a little farther down the path that you are traveling.
I also believe that after you have gotten your feet wet and learned to swim, you should help others who are headed in the same direction you are headed.
I believe that searching for truth, finding your purpose, volunteering, coaching and mentoring will lead you to leadership. If I can help one person get off the couch and follow their bliss then I have done an OK job. Then maybe one person a year, one person a month, one person a day, one person an hour… you get it, I would love to go viral.
Far fetched, maybe, but I believe.
