Are You A Family Leader?
The purpose of The Way of the Passionate Warrior is to create inspired and passionate family leaders. Yes, this site is about families but truly it is about family leadership. Are you a family leader? Not much happens in life without some sort of initiative and initiative is leadership even if you are the only one being led.
Today, much of our culture has been conditioned to be led. We are taught to obey to just get along. Initiative creates dissonance. It stirs the pot and that creates uncertainty. There is a great incentive today for those already in power to try to stay there by squashing initiative.
Yet, in times of great change it is only initiative that’s going to get us out of here. It is initiative that steers the ship out of the storm. Which way do we steer? That decision requires creativity, decisiveness, and passion to make it stick. We may just be steering off the edge of the Earth (and those who want to squash our initiative will certainly argue that) but we are more likely to discover a new land with new opportunities and new dangers. In fact, we will discover our future.
Are you ready to discover your future or do you prefer wallowing in the uncertainty of today’s perpetual chaos; wondering where the storm might deposit you or where others with initiative might dump you? If you don’t like the direction of your life today, or you feel that your family is drifting apart, perhaps what is missing is you. You can blame your partner or the economy or your extended family or your job or a million other things that you have little control over. Or you can do something about it. It’s time to seize control of your life and begin to steer a course that you set.
Are you ready to sail?
