Leadership is lonely! If it ain't lonely ... it might not be leadership.

There is a famous cartoon of a man resembling the iconic image of Moses who is asking if a bunch of people passed by this way. He asks which way the people went? How many of them were there...etc. It ends with him, after inquiring into everything a leader should know, stating that he is their leader.

There is also a quote that states something along the lines of "If no one is following you, you're not a leader. You are just out for a stroll."

We have this idea that leaders must have a mass following. However, the greatest leaders I know (Jesus, Martin Luther, Ghandi, George Washington Carver, etc.) in the beginning stood alone. There was no following.

The greatest leaders are often the ones who stand against the crowd ... not at the front of it!
