A tsunami survivor is on the beach. They see the ocean recede into the distance and realize what it means.
So they start alerting people to what’s coming. But rather than listen, the people ask their friends what the water receding could mean. And their friends give them all kinds of answers. And many of them are reassuring.
“It’s a hoax.” “We haven’t had a tsunami for 100 years.” “I’m sure it will be fine.”
So they do very little when they could be doing a lot.
It doesn’t take a title to be a leader — & many of the most natural leaders never get one.
Good leaders are people whose actions clearly demonstrate care for those they lead while setting a good example for others to follow.
How a person behaves & what they do is far more reflective of the truth than what they say.
Strong leadership & caring for others involves a lot more than simply stating you care for others.
People who are good at what they do don’t have to tell you — they show it.
If you now lack confidence that your elected officials are working 100% for the people they are responsible for leading, protecting, and representing — this is why it’s important to vote for competent people who do more than just try to personally benefit from their position.
