Have you ever taken one of those personality tests to see if you were a leader or a follower? Were you excited to see you had leadership qualities? Or perhaps disappointed to find you were considered a follower? Society seems to praise leaders while disregarding the qualities of followers.
I find both qualities admirable! Perhaps you are more of a leader than a follower, or perhaps you are more of a follower than a leader, however, I suspect each trait is in you. I admire people who lead by example and are living the lives they love. I equally admire people who follow their dreams and live it.
If you choose to lead your life by example, with integrity and heart, your life will be joyous, love filled, and abundant while inspiring others to live their lives the same. If you choose to follow your passion and hearts desires, your life will be joyous, love filled, and abundant while inspiring others to live their lives the same.
Lead your best life by following your heart, while appreciating your past, enjoying your today, and looking forward to your tomorrow.
“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.” ~ Nelson Mandela
“One secret of leadership is that the mind of a leader never turns off. Leaders even when they are sightseers or spectators, are active; not passive observers.” ~ James C. Humes
“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.” ~Mother Teresa
“Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried.” ~ Frank Tyger

For the next week I invite you to:
Lead by example – choose love over fear, compassion over judgment, and joy over sadness.
Follow your heart by asking yourself what would love say or do and say and be that.
Lead by empowering yourself and others to see each day filled with new possibilities to create your best life.
Follow those who inspire you and show you your greatness within.
Mostly, my wish for you is a week filled with the knowledge of whether you choose to lead or follow that you choose from a space of love and make it the best week of your life.
Until next time, lead the way!
