Just because you don’t consider yourself a leader doesn’t mean others aren’t following you.
You are leading.
Get better at it.
You can deny it. You can hate it. You can battle over semantics. Like it or not, you’re leading someone (maybe just yourself) right now.
Maybe you never thought of it that way. Perhaps you thought nobody believed in you, so you don’t believe in you. It’s time to get over that.
Call it whatever term you prefer. To me, you are a leader. I don’t care what you call it; I only care that you get better and better at doing it.
