Recently I’ve been getting somewhat tired of all the people on Facebook claiming to be ‘Kings’, and ‘Lions’. You know the ones, generally they write it in CAPITALS. The ones for whom Facebook has become a platform to feed their narcissism, where they can chest beat and get comments like, ‘on it brother #thebeast’, ‘beautiful’, ‘amazing, ‘inspirational’ (real comments). They are missing the point that there are actually three types of people:
- Sheep dogs
Most people are sheep, they need to be led, they follow. That’s OK. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Some people are wolves. Wolves chest beat, they prey on the sheep; these are the majority of ‘lions’ and ‘kings’ on Facebook.
And some people, the rare ones, are sheep dogs. They protect the sheep, they lead them, they make sure they are OK.
What are you? And what do you want to be?
Don’t mistake chest beating for self worth, making big claims for inspiration, dominance for leadership.
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
