True Leaders Create More Leaders

"True leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders." As a songwriter and musician, how do I create more leaders? What is a "leader"? Leaders have clear vision and make it happen. They bust-ass and go after their dreams. They take risks and put their neck on the line for a greater purpose. They set an example of what it looks like to say you're going to do something and then actually follow through. When people witness someone carving through rock and accomplishing great things they feel inspired. But when that person also dares to expose their vulnerabilities, to demonstrate that they are just a human - same as you and me - who simply decided with focus and determination to march forward, despite the insecurities, fears & self-doubts, then that inspiration becomes hope. My vision is that one day I perform on the main stage at Sasquatch Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheater and some girl out there will look up at me on stage and think.... "She used to be afraid of singing in front of people but she decided to go for it and she found a way and she set herself free from that fear and now she's living her dreams. If she can do it, so can I." And in that moment, that girl who followed my music will become a leader. And like ripples in water, another girl will witness that girl living her dreams and decide to go after her own...and so on and so forth. We are all capable of going after our dreams and making things happen. You're only a follower until you decide to become a leader, and visa versa. It's a choice. // Cha
