There is a difference between those who are teaching the people as a leader and those who are teaching people to lead. There are many people who can tell you from the pulpit that you can be successful, but few are willing to teach you how to be successful. People are using their words to inspire instead of their actions. Your words should be used engage and encourage, but your actions should inspire.
There is so much work to do and a shallow analysis of the current state of America will not change our tomorrow. I am trying to balance my engagement and my action. It is easy to sit behind a computer and say words that sound good, but it takes so much more effort to do the work that supports those words. I am challenging myself to do less talking and more action. I am working with grassroots organizations and personal initiatives to change the world, but I can do more. We all can do more.
I cannot tell you what your more is, because it is personal. You have to tap into your passion and work hard at creating that change. Life is going to be what we make of it. We cannot leave it up to the next generation to make things better. We have the power and we can change the world today.
Less talk. More action. Be you. Do you. Tell your own story. On your own terms.
