Looking for a Leader

Looking for a Leader

“We hold the fundamental truth that where and how we take our place here, matters.”

— Laura Larriva

A weekly look at the world of conscious media

To Lead and to be Led 

Right now, in the final days of Election 2016, the idea of seeking inspirational leadership can seem altogether grim. Regardless of your political leanings, elections in the United States (and other parts of the world, for sure; we’re not alone) tend to bring out the worst in people. The noise associated with the process is anxiety provoking at best and devastating at worst.

This all got us thinking about leadership. What makes a good leader? Who do we look for in leaders? And, more specifically, who do you look for in a leader? Conversely, who are you leading? And, how do you lead?

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

— John Quincy Adams

According to the Oxford English Dictionary:

guru (NOUN)

1.  A Hindu spiritual teacher.
2.  An influential teacher or popular expert.

Embracing both the spiritual and secular definitions of this word, many of us seek is someone – religious or not – to help guide us through this crazy, beautiful life.

Our new content partner, Where is My Guru led by Founder Jessica Durivage, whose “vision is to become an online campus that stretches out across continents and into the homes and hearts of individuals who are committed to walking the walk and putting one foot, mindfully, in front of the other.”

As we move through this time of tumult and change in our country and, quite likely, in ourselves, bear in mind the vision of putting one food in front of the other with compassion – whether we follow or lead.

Seeking the wisdom of those who have walked before you, is not weakness, but strength. And, as John Quincy Adams said, our actions may “inspire others to dream more, learn more and do more” and that makes each of us a leader in our own right.
