This video is exactly what motivated me to begin this blog. Everyday leaders are among all of us, yet often overlooked. These individuals make a significant impact in others’ lives, whether they know it or not. How often do we recognize these everyday leaders? I’d like to say frequently, but that’s not the truth. In fact, the ones who are achieving greatness and becoming leaders are often overlooked. Why? For a number of reasons, but I’d have to say the most frequent one is because we become to expect greatness from these individuals. Basically setting our expectations from these individuals to ones which mirror their achievements.
Whether these everyday leaders impact one or a million, they’ve impacted a life in a positive way. As Drew Dudley describes it, they have had a ‘lollipop moment’. A moment in which someone has a huge impact in another ones’ life. I am fascinated by the way one person can have such a tremendous impact in the lives of others. But it saddens me that we do not tell others the impact they’ve had.
There are so many great leaders around us. People who are challenging the norm, truly achieving greatness, and inspiring others. So, this blog was created to recognize those people. The ones who are having a huge impact on the lives of one or million. The everyday leaders in our communities that are not getting the recognition they deserve. So this platform is a way to say thank you for being a leader. For challenging the norm, and even when times got tough, they stuck it out. These individuals are showing their counterparts exactly what it takes to achieve greatness. And inspiring others along the way.
