Social Leadership. This is an interesting read that was sent to me in an email. So I have decided to share.
You can read about social leadership HERE.
So what does social leadership mean? Basically it means doing what one was set out “to do the most good for the most people using everything with which they have been blessed.” A social leader is born when one asks their own self:
What is the highest and best use of my talents and passions? What can I do that will have the most positive impact on society? How will the world be better because of my life and contribution? What was I born to become and accomplish?
I personally think that these questions are quite deep and cannot be relatively easy to answer. It took me a long time to figure out what it is that I wanted to do with my life. Presently, I know where I want to go and what it is that I want to do. I choose this route because I feel that I can positively contribute to society from my own experiences. I am thankful for all the experiences that I have in my life to this date, whether they are positive or negative. I have learned from both types of experience. I wouldn’t be honest if I said this is what I wanted to do with my life from the day I was born. My career goals and own personal goals have changed on a consistent basis. Now that I am where I am today, I feel as if I have a bit more control as to where I am heading in life. You can read my post titled “Untitled” to read about what I want to do with my life.
It is funny how I did not know what to call this post. It is funny because I don’t think there is any real title to what it is that I want to do. Perhaps maybe I can call it “victim advocate” of some sort (for both those that enter the justice system as an offender or victim to or both). I am taking those negative experiences and turning them into a positive experience for myself and hopefully allowing others to have a not-so-negative experience in similar situations that I once found myself in.
I recommend everyone who reads this post to read the article on Social Leadership. At least it will give you insight into a new form of leadership and the types of things that “social leaders” have or had done 😉
