There are two types of people in the world. The leader or the follower. The leader will do what they think is right and act upon it.The follower is someone who doesn’t use their own opinions and just flows along.
In 6th grade, my teacher asked us,”Are you a leader or follower?” She went around the entire classroom asking each one of us, who was the leader or follower. I remember some of my classmates saying leader but she disagreed. I didn’t want to be a follower so I chose the better option, leader.
But, what is the better option? Without a follower there is no leader and without the leader there are no followers. There has to be both. The leader is like the representative. The person most brave to lead their followers to their goals. The followers, do what they do. Follow. Follow where they believe is right and just.
There are downsides to be either of these options though. Some leaders take control over the power and become tyrants. The followers just go along with what everyone else is doing.
When I look back at it, I seem more of a follower especially back then. Now, I seem a mix of both. I assume that most people are a mix. There are times when you stand proud and tall being the leader or the timed when you hide in the crowd, just following the motions. It just matters what you choose. Either option is fine but it matters of how you deal with it. So, my question for you is…
Are you a leader or follower?
