There’s a yearning within most of us to fit in.

To look like the people around us.

To talk like they talk and do what they do.

To find safety in the herd.

To avoid the embarrassment of mistakes.

But leaders, real leaders, aren’t like that.

They are lions, not zebras.

They roam far and wide, not contained in a cage.

They embrace their own uniqueness and celebrate the strengths of others.

And they understand that leadership isn’t limited to a title, but is available to all.

So let me ask you, are you fitting in or leading?
