A Lollipop moment - Drew Dudley on Leadership

A great call for action from Drew Dudley:

How much of you are confident to call yourself a real leader?
Only few people put up their hand when this question is asked.  Drew Dudley tells a story about why we should not put leadership outside ourselves like something you have to earn, but acknowledge the real power we have inside us.
As long as we make leadership something bigger than us, something beyond us, something that has to do with changing the world, we give ourselves reasons why it is ok not to be the leader we can be.  

Our greatestfear is not that we are inadequate; our greatest fear is that we are powerfulbeyond measure.  It is our light and not our darkness that frightensus.  (Marianne Williamsen)
Call for action!  We need to redefine leadership as being about Lollipop moments; 

A LOLLIPOP moment = A moment where somebody did something or said something that maid your life fundamentally better. 
How many we create? 
How many we acknowledge? 
How many we say thank you for it.

Leadership is not about changing the world.  It's about changing life right around you.
Leadership is in all of us!

    “leadership cannot really be taught. It can only be learned.”
