What is leadership? I believe that leadership is the ability to influence others. Some leaders use it for the good while others use it for the not so good. Take a look at history, leaders such as Hitler and Stalin used it to the detriment of man kind however leaders such as Martin Luther King and Ghandi used it for the betterment of humanity. Good or Bad, leadership is Influence, nothing more, nothing less.
Today is Inauguration Day and it has drawn out a lot of emotions in Americans all across the country. Some people are happy while others are furious. Some spent the day cheering while others spent the day marching. Regardless of which side of the line you stand on, what is done is done. Trump is in office and as of right now, that is not going to change. What we can do is start to focus on the future which is something we can change. Since it has not happened yet, anything is possible.
For most people, change isn't easy. It isn't fun and often isn't welcomed with open arms but it is possible. If you are unhappy with today, I encourage you to be an agent of change not a rioter or complainer. Standing up for what you believe in is more than a Facebook post. Become a participant not just a spectator, change starts at a local level. Join the PTA, go to a city counsel meeting, become an informed voter and maybe one day run for President :) This is one of the benefits of living in America, we can be the change we want to see!
