“Poor leaders push us towards the goal. Great leaders guide us along the journey.” – Simon Sinek

When we think of world leaders, what often comes to mind? According to Forbes, the top ten qualities of good leaders are honesty, delegation, communication, confidence, commitment, a positive attitude, creativity, intuition, inspiration, and approachability. That is quite a list! And it’s hard to knock any of the aforementioned qualities, as they are all honorable attributes to any genuine leader.

However, when we think of our leaders today, would we use any of those characteristics to describe them? While those traits might apply to some leaders, most people would use much harsher words to describe our so-called “leaders” — especially those of us who have started to wake up.

Looking at the chaotic nature of today’s society and its obvious inequalities, it seems our world leaders are more clearly defined by terms such as greedy, power hungry, criminal, psychopathic, manipulative, and are overall, parasitic in nature. Obviously this is a blanket statement that doesn’t apply to every single person, as there as many honorable community leaders out there — but when we think of our leaders as a whole, in areas such as government, banking, entertainment, or big business, it’s hard not to come to such negative conclusions.
