True leaders

True leaders are not on a podium.

They are not looking for awards.

They are not looking for recognition.

They are not looking for something in return for their leadership.

They are looking for the people they lead to succeed and become leaders too.

Don’t wait for others to lead, don’t look for the payback or the reward, do it because you care about something, because you want to make a difference and inspire others. Do it simply because it makes us feel good and seeing how it helps our fellow human is the reward that no money can ever buy.

We have plenty of people in authority who seek to control and manipulate others, what we need is more true leaders that inspire others.

As Simon Sinek says ‘leaders eat last’.
