Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others? – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leadership is about how well we can help build other leaders – not how we can accumulate followers for our own ego.
Most of society loves the ideas of more followers. More likes. More online love. More attention.
But using that platform to turn the focus onto others and help them become better people?
It’s not easy. We naturally love getting attention and acceptance. Being someone who puts the focus entirely on others can be challenging at first because it’s different.
But it’s necessary.
Our influence today hinges on our ability to pivot our focus from solely on our success and more toward how we can help others succeed.
As we celebrate the life of Dr. King today, I’d encourage you to take a few minutes to write down what one action step you can take this week to help someone else reach their goals.
Be the reason someone else lives out their dream.
