Life Is Not About You. It Is About This

According to Werner Erhard, ''If you're going to be a leader, 
you're going to have to have a loose relationship with this thing you call 'I' or 'me'. 
Maybe that whole thing in me around which the universe revolves isn't so central, 
maybe life is not about the self but about self trancendence.''- Werner Erhard

If you are going to be an effective leader, 
you are going to put other people's interests before your own. 
Do not put yourself first. If you do, no one is going to follow you. 
And a leader without a follower is not a leader. 
And do not forget that life is not about you. It is about others.
So if you want others to follow you, put them first.

Leadership Begins With Self-Awareness

To know others, you must see yourself in them.

If you want to be successful, self-awareness is important.
Because if you do not know who you are,
if you do not know yourself, 
if you do not know what you can do,
if you do not know what you cannot do,
you will find it difficult to lead other people.

To lead others, you must first lead yourself.
You must first "know thyself."

According to Fiona Buckland, "Self-awareness
is your primary leadership skill. You lead 
from yourself, with yourself."

If you want to lead others, know who you are.
If you want know others, know yourself.
If you want others to follow you, you go first.
When you do, they will come.
