How Great Leaders Show Up

Why do you show up?

Is it to make money? Is it to acquire fame? Is it to prove yourself? Is it to establish your worth? Is it to help yourself?

More often than not we show up to bolster our bruised egos or to puff up our swollen ones.

But if you want to be a great leader, the leader of a tribe or just the leader of your own life, you can’t just show up for your agenda.

Your passion to serve yourself will only take you so far.

If you want the kind of passion that moves mountains, the kind of dedication that lights darkness, the kind of drive that defies reason, you have to find the people you long to serve.

You have to find a locus of motivation that lives outside your own small mind.

It’s only when your heart grows to hold another that showing up creates astounding impact.
