Personal Flight Path
“Not the cry, but the flight of the wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.” (Chinese Proverb)
Sometimes we feel like it’s our job to get others — our children, our spouse, our co-workers — to do certain things. The reality is, our job is much more interesting than that.
Our job is to lead others into a better future. We want to influence others. We want to see them own responsibility for themselves without being pushed and prodded by us. It’s only when you act like a leader and not a gatekeeper or a game warden that you can control the flight path.
Lead the way with your personal flight path and have confidence that others will follow.
In other words, you behave with integrity, and you will inspire others to do the same.
