The Destination of Leadership–A Poetic Thought

Leadership, Organization

Leadership transcends us to the direction of who we have the potential to be.  It’s that push you need to get you where you need to be when you’re not even wanting to be there.  There’s a dwelling question and it’s not that we don’t have a higher sense of what it is, what it could be…who we are.  It’s always going to be there regardless if we want it to be.  It’s a ghost.  A storyteller’s nightmare because you can’t even write the next sentence.  It is a predestined fate that holds truth to what empowers our heart.  When we’re hungry we seek sustenance.  When we’re hurting we seek comfort.  When we want direction we look down for familiar paths.  

And when we get there, is it over?  Do you pay to ride again?  The train always stops where it started.  Our roots are the foundation of who we become.  We’re always seeking a validation.  The feeling of being lost is uncomfortable.  There is no attraction to uncertainty.  We run from fear when we’re holding courage in our hands.  If you want to get somewhere you must define your expectations.  It’s progress.  A single step into success that often bumps into failure.  It’s okay.  We are infinite.  The question, the journey lies where it always is…with us.  And there’s exploration to do.  The answer is not so much the destination as it is the journey from the question. The answers will appear, but we shouldn’t seek answers as much as we should just be the ones to make the answer.  So I ask you, where does leadership lead you?

  1. My path leads in leadership me from 1 step to the next. I think “failire” can only be present when we expect too much from walking 1 step at a time. Therefore I am sure that many of us do overestimate this word and do not experience failure at all. Any thoughts?


    1. I think it takes us a few attempts to get that quality product or result we really want. I guess it’s not really failure, but a bump before we try again. Good perspective!
