Nicky's Nuggets to Real Life Stress
I define "Leader" as one who has faced or faces many trials in life and yet gets up with a smile and hope. One who will lift others, encourage others, reassures others, and goes with the flow, will always sit at the front of the class if they know they get distracted easily, and will let the teacher know if they have something on their face so the other kids don't laugh at the teacher, They are a positive thinker, care deeply about others, and care more about the "go" than the "show".
Leaders don't travel to brag about their lavish vacation, but instead use it to create and connect with others that they would have never otherwise met. They learn a different way of life and bring back some of those experiences to not only enhance their lives, but those around them.
Here's the catch about leaders, they are often sorely and sadly misunderstood. They carry the weight of the world and the family on their shoulders and often do not tell a soul about their challenges. Often times the challenges are not even known until the problem and disappointment surfaces, maybe a wee late, but it's not a problem that is ever too big to be solved. Leaders do have down days, days where they just don't think they can keep going and will have a breakdown, but then suddenly they rise up and push faster, harder, stronger. They breakthrough the barrier and overcome their greatest fear day by day. Sometimes the fears cause so much procrastination that they get stuck in a cycle of paying attention to others so that they cannot pay attention to themselves. To Be Continued, but for now do any of these sound like you?
