Leaders versus Followers

When leaders make a mistake, they say, “I was wrong.”
When followers make mistakes, they say, “It wasn’t my fault.”

A leader works harder than a follower and has more time;
a follower is always “too busy” to do what is necessary.

A leader goes through a problem;
a follower goes around it and never gets past it.

A leader makes and keeps commitments;
a follower makes and forgets promises.

A leader says, “I’m good, but not as good as I ought to be;”
a follower says, “I’m not as bad as a lot of other people.”

Leaders listen;
followers just wait until it’s their turn to talk.

Leaders respect those who are superior to them and tries to learn something from them;
followers resent those who are superior to them and try to find chinks in their armor.

Leaders feel responsibile for more than their job;
followers say, “I only work here.”

A leader says, “There ought to be a better way to do this;”
followers say, “That’s the way it’s always been done here.”

5 thoughts on “Leaders versus Followers

  1. One more,
    A leader will never quit and make breakthrough,

    A follower is alway a loser – he set his standard too low.

    A true leader set his standard on God’s standard, but a fool set up to compete other. The more they compete, the more “small” they. Like I alway say, stay away from they who are small-minded, NEVER let them decide who you are. Cast them behind, like Jesus says, Get to my back, Satan. Destruction is waiting for those who thinking too highly of themselves. For me, I am the Watcher, who watch on them, but not follow them. One must be watch for dark, in order to see light. Blind leader is like a foolish dog chasing after it’s own tail. So be WISE.

  2. I choose to be leader, even people don’t acknowledge that. I choose to please God than men.

    We ought to obey God rather than men – Acts 5:29

    In the beginning of my life, men mean nothing in my life – but they mean everything in God. Well, God is my everything, but I don’t feel so much of connecting people. That was a conflict between I and God. God showed me that there is a wrong perception in my mind. I really hate negative people, they alway drag you down. But I begin to see that there are negative people and helpless people. I have pity on the helpless people, but for those negative people even they are rich – they led a unhappy. Since my life is not to amuse them, I will have to get rid of those negative people out of life. A good shepard choose his flock of sheep, how successful you are depend on who you mixed around with.
    Negative people who enjoy live in slum of their live, they enjoy ruin people’s lives for their pleasure – so they will not feel that bad for themselves. Do you know what is that?
    That is selfish.
    You don’t to look elsewhere, there are plenty around. For me, they try to talk me out as if they know my future. Sadly, I know if they going believe like that – they may be falling in traps they set for themselves.
    Tell you the truth, the evil one will not only lie to you. In the highest evil, he will make the false thing look real – when you fall for it and ultimately failure. It will make you blame on yourself – led you to depression of negative. Then he will say, Ha, Ha – You have fell into my trap. Feel cheated right. By then he is of the world have already destroy your soul.

    Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. – Matthew 10:28

    If any of the people want a negative life, you got a HELL of it – a evil one is eager to pour more negative thoughts so you can not a accomplish what the Lord have for you.

  3. William william… I only ask you a simple question and your reply is an essay long answer. Think you got alot a suppressed emotions… Ha ha ha…

    Anyway here’s my own description of “leaders versus followers”….
    Leaders dun wait for things to happen, they make things happen. Followers wait for things to happen and do nothing about it.

    Btw leaders or followers in this context do not refer to titles or job description. Emphasis is placed more on character and attitude of an individual.

    For instance, in title you can be a follower but you are a leader material.

  4. Well, more anger on those negative people – but it’s ok for me.
    Tell you the truth, those negative who tend to judge on other, they have more struggle in their life. Well, it is not my fault, nor my business.
    Let those who dwell on their mind, be bother by their mind.
    Let those who seek on their heart, let them find their treasure within.
    Don’t believe me, look around you.
    Since you are friend – The trick to his vicious cycle is to accept other in order to flow with the world as well as Spirit of the Most High.

    I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. – Matthew 16:19

    Leader is just a title, if you behave like a leader – you are a leader in God’s eye. If you think you are leader, look at your back and see is there any one following you. If those people love so much about the title instead of loving God, let them have it – let the title be like a mountain – fall on them.
    People can attempt to covet thing like leadership, but be prepare to be overload. As you know an overload eagle can not soar. What is a overload eagle? An old eagle with heavy feather. If it did not plucked out it’s old feather – they can not soar. Experience can certainly help a leader, but turn it into too religious it will become a stumbling block.

    Me, I am a free spirit with no bundle of leadership, like a happy cheerful eagle soaring on God’s standard. 😛 Happy, more happy, most happy……….Ha Ha Ha
