Leadership, Perspective

The Gift of Going First

It’s more than a gift, it’s a leadership principle.

In order to lead, you must have those who follow.

Equally important, you can’t lead anyone anywhere if you aren’t going somewhere yourself.

To invite others to follow means you have a destination or journey that you are influencing them to pursue (usually along with you).

That’s where the gift comes into play. The Gift of Going First.

As a leader, when you go first you open the door for others. You create a path that makes it easier for someone behind you to go second and the person behind them to go third.

It’s a significant gift that many are waiting to receive. Take the first step. Open the door and let your actions be an example for others to follow.

      Admiring the persistence you put into your website and detailed information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information. Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

      Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
