Follow The Leader

Last Update: July 03, 2017

My community at WA, you get to view this before I put it on my Nature Teaches website.

Since joining the online income and online business industry in 2015 one encouraging yet misleading posts I see people do, especially on Facebook is people saying they don't want followers but leaders on their team, or looking for leaders.

At first I was all gun ho about it followingly blinding in agreement. Yea that's right. I'm a leader. Though I'm the quiet, in the background type leader. However now i do not agree and realize they are missing the natural order, the process of leadership. I don't know whether they skip it, don't think about it, or they themselves forgot.

You cannot be a leader without first following, being inspired, motivated, by someone or something. Now I innerstand people are born with what is called that natural leadership ability or personality. They still had to and will eventually follow someone or something that teaches them how to be the best leader that they can be in their area, choice, position, or action.

Someone is always watching, following us. And we are always leading someone or something. Even if we don't intentionally know about it or meaning to.

I hope I can pass this message and understanding along so that people don't feel worthless, lack self confidence, or doubt question, who they are because they don't meet the people, not the the industry, the people's definition of being leader, what it means, or what it looks like. It's not a cool feeling or process to go through in the heart and mind. Speaking from personal experience.

Wealthy Affiliate is a prime example. We all start as followers in this platform. Getting to know it, learning from it. Then as we grow we begin to help others. Even if it's as simple as answering questions about where to start, or personal advice. It's a healthy give and take, lending a helping hand, helping yourself helps others, helping others helps yourself CYCLE. And that is what's needed and most times missing between human relationships, interactions, and business.

And still part of The Great Circle of Life when it comes to finance, economics, business, and most importantly...people.

Hi Angelic

You pretty much covered all angles on following and leadership here in your well written blog

One I would like to add is leading from behind, as we sometimes lose focus outfront,

We need to step back advise, teach and support others to learn leadership abilities, which means imparting our knowledge onto others

We are good at somethings and better at others, and giving someone else an opportunity to lead for a change is how you build more followers.

IN HELPING OTHERS WE PROSPER

All the best
Gary

Hey Gary, I do agree leaders should give other people a chance to lead. not only to create more followers, to help others, and even to help themselves and retrain themselves on anything new or that they can personally improve on.

Thanks for bringing that up. You are appreciated!!!

Reminds me of Matthew 20:26. We must learn to serve first before being a leader.

Thanks Terry I'm glad that you understand that yourself and we are in agreement. I know this will be something that i will be teaching my little people. I'm glad the wording was to your understanding. I talk and speak in a way that even though i say the same thing i say it in a different way because things connect differently to different people. I even do it in my poetry. Sometimes i remind myself of Lady Redundant Woman from Word Girl I use my powers for good though. Lol :)

I have a lot on my hard drive..poems and such! :) I actually started writing a book, and had a poem published when I was 15! Now I write posts, articles, and stuff just for me! I miss the writing I used to do, but this is bringing it out of me again! :) Most of my writing now consists of my posts I write in WA in my profile!, and of course my blogs! :)

Gurllll! We have so much in common! Me too. I started writing in the 5th grade a poem assignment for English. My teacher enjoyed it so much he sent it in to be published somewhere that I forgot. I too started putting together a book of all poems my husband and I wrote. We even have book covers, just life and time. Still gathering them together though. It'll come. Personally I want to write another book, a series from my first one just having trouble with it.

I am glad you are writing again!
