Is it enough to lead? Aren’t your followers thirsting for something more – for inspiration?
Locked down and masked, breathing itself became a worry. Breathing freely not only in the real world but in everything. We want to let our emotions breathe, let our minds breathe.
Inspiration (in-breath-ing) is a deep caress of the soul, which then opens up to caring more. It helps us create richer ideas and act with greater energy.
What enables us to inspire others?
Maybe it’s not about us.
To inspire is to reach into someone and bring their talents to the fore.
It is to make your values real for others, in practice at ground level, beneath the high skies of philosophy.
It means you attach the future to the present, however imperfectly, so that hope displaces despair.
And inspiration is when you make imperfect decisions,, out front and vulnerable, because they are the decisions that must be made.
This is what your followers need to help you succeed.
