Lead Or Follow
Reading time: 2 – 4 minutes
A lot of Poverty Propaganda Preachers tell you in order to be a good Leader you have to be a good Follower. I’m sure they mean it in the context of falling back sometimes but I hate when people just throw shit out there with no context at all….. ie… Right ON, right on what motherfvcker! I often think it’s a choice of how you want to live your life. For me I rather take my chances with my own way of thinking than fvck around and start copying off the next kat. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t listen but it does mean I ain’t behind that kat.
See most people think the decision to Lead or Follow only comes up in big situations. But, think about it for a second; you have been deciding if you want to roll with them or roll on your own since you were a kid. When someone didn’t let you play with them you had two reactions to it. Either you cried and felt rejected or you got mad and plotted to either have your own or take their shit. In my life I got mad a lot and still do to this day as I don’t like the idea of following aka waiting on someone to let me in. Sure there have been times when I could’ve sat and waited but I felt like a fvcking pussy in my heart. I don’t like the weak feeling of admitting that someone else holds the key to my future.
Lead or Follow is a choice we make everyday. Either you’re plotting to get your freedom or you’re hiding under the stairs stealing cookies or you’re hoping someone shows favor on you. I’m sure in the White Jesus Bible it’s brainwash for being humble, waiting on the Lord and paying your dues. I’m sure in your business books it’s brainwash for no one makes it on their own, banks are your friend and no one can lead all the time. But, in reality to Lead or Follow is a choice between strong and weak. It might be strategic to Follow for a while but even that tactic is used to build up enough resources to Lead.
I’ve never heard someone call anyone a follower and mean it in a good way. In church a follower is the blind who don’t know the Bible. It’s always been seen as 2nd place or even 3rd and for a lot of Suckers it’s no 125 in the MLM line. I’ve never heard the word follower associated with anyone who leads a nation, leads a army or leads a movement. The right way is everyone leads in their own way and leaders come together to get their common goals accomplished. But, none of them are followers!
To Lead or Follow is a choice we make everyday. Somehow 2nd and 3rd place is supposed to be great when in reality you the nobody standing next to the Man!
