True Leadership -2-
Fantastic how many people stand up and go out there to help people in need. They are truly making a difference in a lot of peoples’ lives. Entrepreneurs, families, friends, initiatives in all forms. And apart from the enormous refugee problem Europe is facing at the moment, and all things people organize to help, there are a lot of initiatives to create a better world, from the inside out. And thank god, because we can’t wait for the government to create a better one, as their processes became so bureaucratic it would take years and years before we’d get somewhere…
And you know what, they can’t help it. Most of the people working for the government do this with the intention to truly help their community. But their bright spirits get washed away by the immense piles of paperwork we created during the years to get things aligned and registered. And where do we find ourselves now? In a situation where no single government can take true action when it is needed the most. We’ve got this far, because of our civilization and all the regulations. But now we’ve reached the point when we are going downwards, as it is killing our flexibility, our stretch. We’ve created our own prison. Our hands are tied, which excludes the possibility to move in an organic way. We’ve turned from water into rock.
Now what needs to shift here? How do we tear down these walls instead of figuratively placing even more? It is up to the leaders to stand out now and show the world why they have these positions. Because they are the ones who can make the walls tumble down, who can make a difference on a large scale. By following their intuition instead of their procedures. They have to step up and let the procedures be, look beyond the forms and administration and focus on what has to be done. It is up to them to give the order to their administration to go beyond the frameworks and let people help others free of unnecessary obstacles.
So leaders, step up! The population will follow you. And yes, that is needed, because a lot of people want to help, but don’t know where to start. That is your role. Give them a start. Because just changing the system from the bottom up is not enough. We need you to change our system from the top down as well. To tear down the walls, without the intention of ever raising them again. And I understand it must be difficult and scary to have the whole world look at you. But you are there for a reason. So make it count!
