I recently watched a TED talk titled: How Great Leaders Inspire Action. Of course I was more than happy to click on the link thinking that I, too, am one of those aspiring leaders. The man giving the speech is named Simon Sinek. I loved what he had to say and I knew it was good, but I could never really connect the dots as to how it applied to me.
He said: “The goal is not to do business with everybody who needs what I have. The goal is to do business with people who believe what I believe.”
I think that still to this day I don’t know if I will ever capture 100% of the potential of that idea. Think back to all of the times when you supported someone for something they were doing. How much easier was it when you believed in what that person was actually doing. How much easier was it to take action for them and invest your time and energy, knowing that you believed in what they believed.
I believe that everyone in the world can get along, and I believe that this is the next level in humanities evolution.
