The Most Important Characteristic of Leadership

LeadToday

I have long held that the most vital characteristic of leadership is integrity. Other?s including some who I greatly respect would say the most important characteristic of leadership is good judgment.

I have a hard time admitting I could be wrong about this. It does seem though that lots of people are willing to sacrifice integrity for what they think is judgment that more closely resembles their own.

But it is beginning to appear that those who believe judgment to be the most crucial leadership characteristic may be mistaken as well. That?s because empathy seems to be increasing in importance.

There are currently 462 million variations of the definition of leadership on Google. No matter which one you prefer they all have something to do with people. The definitions say something about motivating, encouraging, teaching, challenging, or building people. They talk about caring and making a difference in the lives…

We’ve witnessed nature destroy itself and then rebuild itself from the ashes. But how will nature withstand the fight against man? …when we exploit its beauty without thoughts of preserving its future and tear it down for our own selfish pleasures???

 

 

6.6.18#trapped

When you’re struggling within yourself…background blur bottle bright

It’s like being trapped in a tall glass.

You scream, hoping you’ll be heard .

You stand there with your arms up… waiting for someone to pull you out

……but no one comes, you are trapped.

 

Stuck standing there; mouth wide open, arms up, screaming at the top of your lungs “HELP!!!

Just you and yourself.

Now, you’re tired and your energy is gone. You slowly rot.

……because no one came???

But all the while… you, you were there.

When you lose yourself…
When you become unsure of yourself… When you become unsure of the company you keep…

It’s time… it’s time for solitude. Recapture yourself. You have to disconnect from the external noises… and PLUG YOURSELF INTO YOURSELF!!

That means it’s time to step away from the drugs, it’s time to step away from social media… and sometimes that includes family… sometimes that includes friends.

We have to nourish our mind, body, and soul… mind you the saying isn’t just “body”… it’s “MIND, BODY, AND SOUL”…

no one says it’ll be easy because it’s not… especially in our black community. We need better, we deserve better, the change starts from within yourself…

I am tired of seeing us run this cycle where we exclude our mental/emotional well being…

I really hate that people would rather you sit in what you consider unhappiness… by means of just making it in this crazy world and doing what society expects you to do/be. Rather than being happy and pursuing your happiness… because that’s when you truly thrive.

5.25#women

As a woman, you’re expected to carry everyone’s shit and not complain… God forbid if you cry about.

Why is that okay? Who says it’s okay?

Ladies, you are invincible. You are wonderful. Your looks do not define you. Your job does not define you. Your marital status does not define. Your kids do not define you. Your wealth does not define you. Your lack of does not define you.

YOU DEFINE YOU. You have the power to choose who you are. You can’t choose how a person views you. But you can choose who you are and what you represent…

So that leaves the question who are you? And who aren’t you? Who will you become… who won’t you become? ❤
