Let me vent for a minute. The following is my personal opinion. Subjective and judgemental.
I am getting so tired of all of the leadership posts and leadership quotes on social media. One could think that our society consists of just leaders. And that the only decent way of being is to be a leader.
Who does not have the ambition to be a leader must feel really left out. Like something is wrong with them.
Nothing is wrong with you. Not everyone is made to be a leader. And that is ok.
The world does need great followers as much as it needs great leaders. Maybe even more. Every leader will tell you that.
Followers are crucial to every leader. Followers are the ones that spread a great innovation, make it go viral and carry the vision of the leader. Actually, a leader is just a crazy person until the first follower jumps on board. The first follower is the one who really makes or breaks it and attracts others to follow.
There is no shame in being a follower as there is no shame in not having the ambition of being a leader. Do not let any social media posts tell you otherwise! Even if you see the same ole leadership quote 12 times in your stream (yawn...).
And for ALL of the people who perceive themselves as leaders: I hate to be the one breaking it to you. Signing up for an "SEO optimization" affiliate program does not make you a leader. Copying a system someone else has created does not make you an entrepreneur. It just makes you a self-employed person.
