Leadership is a word used so often that sometimes I begin to wonder what does it even mean. Not to add to the confusion, but perhaps to provide a fresh light, I’d like to propose that leadership is isolation.
Leadership is like forging a new path, and any time we create something new, we have to separate from the crowd. Staying with the pack is not inherently wrong. I’m glad we have big corporations and local governments that give us access to amazing things like the internet or utilities.
However, we can always find room for improvement, and the more significant the change, the more prominent the separation from the pack. A famous example is Mahatma Gandhi, who said: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Most people are not called to be the next Gandhi, but if you are doing something that you believe in, and you find yourself isolated, then don’t get discouraged. You are leading. Isolation then is not a sign to turn around but to keep going, because soon enough you’ll find others who are crazy enough to be different. And with time, who knows, your craziness just might become a household name!
When do you feel isolated? How can you find others who’ll support you on this journey?
Are you struggling in a relationship? Do you have a specific view of where your relationship should be, but don’t know how to get there?
You are stuck because your mind doesn’t see how you can improve the situation. That’s why you have a hard time taking action. You need someone to show you a new approach that will make transformation simple!
