Take your seat of influence and power to rule over your domain in balance and clarity. Your skill as a negotiator will impress many, as will your wisdom and compassion. The sovereign doesn’t have to know all the answers. They don’t need to rule with an iron fist and cold heart. They merely need to know who the experts are, have the understanding to know who to listen to and the wisdom to ascertain who’s trying to be something they’re not.
It’s not fear or platitudes that make a good leader. It’s the confidence to be who you are at any given moment. Admitting you don’t know everything, no matter how schooled you are, or how experienced you maybe takes the power over you out of the hands of others. No one knows it all. What is important is being ok with that, not feeling slighted or insecure about listening to the expertise of others. Even if all you’re going to do is use it to forward your own research about the matter.
A leader of substance is always aware that everyone has a part to play in our own little kingdom. But the ultimate choices are held within us. We are accountable for the decisions, even if that decision is to forgo having a basic understanding of the topic and following along with what someone is telling you to do. Do you really want to give away all your trust like that? Don’t you think it might be better to attain input and counsel from others; research a little bit about what both sides have shared, and then make an informed decision about what YOU should do in your own kingdom?
