Great leaders are very, very human. These are men and women who, when things don’t go right, say, “I was wrong.” They don’t hold themselves up on pedestals to which people may see them as better than they are and bigger than life. Theirs is a humble, values-based and vocal acknowledgement that they are not perfect. Even in their words is a sense of security, not shame, in who they are. People are attracted to their simple humanity. They are simply one of them… one of us. And from this humanness, a great gift is given them, the precious, highly treasured gift of trust.
George Orwell wrote, “The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.” Tony Robbins adds, “Don’t try to be perfect, just be an excellent example of being human.” May you show people the real and beautiful you in your transparency, values and selfless giving, that you continuously and joyously journey, as Og Mandino writes, from human being to human becoming.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
