Why Leaders Eat Last
In biological terms, leaders get the first pick of food and other spoils, but at a cost. When danger is present, the group expects the leader to mitigate all threats even at the expense of their personal well-being. Understanding this deep-seated expectation is the key difference between someone who is just an “authority” versus a true “leader.”
The thing that always amazes me with peoples’ need to be liked is that if they really took a deep look inside, they would realize that they don’t truly even like the people that they are trying to impress in the first place. There is no need to try to impress the people who love and care about you because they want you to do what makes you happy! #LearnLife
There are those who do it just for the show. And there are those who do it for real. There are those who tell you what they think you want to hear. And there are those respect you enough to always speak the truth.
There are those who merely go through the motions. And there are those who sincerely seek to create real and lasting value.
You can get by for a while just living on the surface of life, feeding on those things that are fleeting and meaningless. There will come a time, though, when you’ll need and want something deeper, something with real nourishment.
And then you’ll wonder why you ever wasted your time with all those shallow, insignificant things. The sooner you live for real, true to who you are, the better life will be.
Life is now. Stop waiting for your opportunity to fully live and realize that it is already here.
Perhaps you have always thought that someday you will follow your dreams. The fact is, someday has now arrived.
Your authentic purpose is calling out to you. Now is the time to be fulfilling that purpose.
Go now in the direction you’ve always known you must go. Allow the unique and beautiful person you are to come fully to life.
Let go of the excuses and rationalizations that keep you mired in disappointment and frustration. Move quickly forward by continually reminding yourself of why you are doing so.
This is the moment for bold, yet sincere action. Someday is here, and the richness of life is now yours to experience.
Whatever your problems may be, you’re not going to solve them by withdrawing from life. It may seem that life has beat you down, but that doesn’t mean you have to hide from it.
The answer is not to give up on life. The answer is to give up your negative perspective.
Success does not come from avoiding the difficult things. Success comes from transcending the difficulties while transforming them into positive value.
Yes, it is painful to move forward when you feel that life is pushing against you. Yet what is even more painful is the regret you’ll feel if you don’t make the effort.
Your attitude is always your choice. No matter what is happening on the outside, you can always maintain a powerful, positive outlook on the inside.
Choose today to rise above whatever might be threatening to bring you down. Choose a perspective that empowers you, and use that power to do truly great things.
