The Power and Joy of Engagement – Walking Slowly Through the Crowd

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit,” wrote Aristotle. For great leaders, one of their greatest acts is that of serving… their selfless engagement with others that they may achieve their greatest potential. Tony Robbins said, “Engaging people is about meeting their needs, not yours.” John Maxwell adds to this saying, “You cannot be an engaging leader until you have engaged in the lives of people. Walk slowly through the crowd.”

The gift you give to those you touch and serve is one of caring… listening to them, respecting and valuing their opinions, understanding the beautiful uniqueness they bring to the world. And in your act of giving, you may receive a gift in return – their engagement and giving with you. And they will follow you for what you have given. It is not about your charisma, as Maxwell says, but about the connection that you make with them. It is a simple act of intended attention to those in your life. It is the beautiful you who walks slowly through the crowd. May you enjoy every beautiful step on your magnificent journey.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
