“Far too many people are looking for the right person, instead of trying to be the right person.” Gloria Steinem
Truth, no matter where it comes from, is still truth. This is certainly the case regarding today’s thought. How many times has it been said or implied in relationship to a spouse, political leader, preacher, friend, and the list goes on? If only we could find the right person.
If we are not careful, we can spend all our time searching for the right person, when all we are really capable of doing is to focus on being the right person.
The greatest leadership in the world today is born out of individuals who lead from “being,” rather than simply “doing.” People may know all the right actions to perform, but if it does not originate from the inner being, eventually their influence will crumble.
Our life needs to be spent with a focus on being the right person and allow that pursuit to direct every attitude, decision, action, and word.
When it does, we will discover the “right” people will find us.
