    Leader or Follower?

    “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and follower.” (Steve Jobs: His Own Words and Wisdom.) Has our life to this point been average? Has a silent but steady goal of ours always been to exceed the life of our parents? Our ancestors were happy to have a job with sufficient income to raise their family. They felt satisfied to not be hungry or penniless. Is our goal to follow their lifestyle? Success does not mean being rich but being satisfied with our life.

    Would we even possibly dream of being a successful entrepreneur? Steve Jobs thought that those who try new things separate themselves from followers. These leaders attempt innovative ideas where they work. Often reaching for the unknown and untried is scary. We may experience a failure or two, but we won’t always wonder if we could have succeeded had we tried.
