Think about it. Everyone influences another person’s life, even if only in some small way. Isn’t that the very definition of leadership – influence?
But each person’s most vital leadership role starts at home. And I don’t mean the family, although that’s important, too. No, it’s even more elementary than that.
Each person must first lead himself or herself. The euphemism in English-speaking countries for the choices human beings make is “leading your life,” and it’s called that for a reason.
