June 19 – Daily Reflection
The man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
– James Crook
Are you leading for the right reasons?
Everyone wants praise and attention for a job well done. But for every Kobe Bryant making news for a game-winning shot, there are a million Average Joes doing great things but receiving no credit. If you’re upset by the lack of attention you’re getting for your leadership, perhaps its time to reevaluate why you are a leader in the first place. True leaders lead to help their team, community, or office–not for fame and attention. Sure, receiving recognition feels good, but remember that you are there to lead the group in front of you, not the ones watching behind you. Spectators will soon forget about you, but those you led will remember what you’ve done even after you are gone.
