Friday's Finest (2)
‘A leader isn’t someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to others so that they may have the strength to stand on their own.’
Isn’t that just beautiful? I never really thought about what a leader’s job was, except the obvious- to lead, to inspire, to have creative ideas before everyone else.
But as Beth Revis so wonderfully puts it, a leader is willing to give his strength to others so that they feel stronger in turn. He or she is someone who is a pillar of support, someone trustworthy, someone who doesn’t want to control, but someone that gets you to make connections, to realize things on your own.
The world needs leaders like that.
