The more you develop as a leader, the more you find yourself leading. You almost can’t stop yourself. If there is a gap of leadership, you speak up. You step in. It becomes second nature for you.
It could be as simple as helping your family decide what’s for dinner or as complicated as leading a team through a critical decision. Whether it’s officially your responsibility or not, if you are gifted to lead, it’s just what you do.
But let me throw this out to you…
Resist the urge to lead everything.
You need arenas where you don’t lead so you can follow.
You need to follow so you can breathe.
When you have space to breathe, you relax.
And when you relax, you think differently.
Where can you choose to follow rather than lead today?
