Many years ago, a mentor of mine told me that people want to be led. At first I was cynical and thought he must’ve saw this in a fortune cookie. Then I started stepping back and observing groups of people. When something would come up, they were all hesitant to step up and take charge. There would actually be a look of relief on many faces when someone would take ownership. This applies to most areas of our lives. We are always looking to see what other are doing before we step out. What are the leaders in fitness doing to get bigger arms? What are the leaders in <insert industry> doing? People want to be led…so lead them!
