Leaders distort reality

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” -John Quincy Adams

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
An astronaut, a basketball player, a singer, an artist? ¬†At a young age, any lofty response other than “a murderer” is accepted and generally encouraged. ¬†“Sure, you can be whatever your little heart desires.” ¬†When does this change, and more importantly, WHY does it change?
At what point do we begin rejecting dreams and promoting ‘reality?’¬†

“Reality is mediated by perception, and perception can be manipulated.”
-Jason Silva

Leaders reject the notion of one-dimensional reality.  Leaders distort reality; recognizing distortion becomes real when ideas are brought to life.

Ask yourself, are you living the life you’ve dreamed of?
If the answer is no, why not? ¬†What’s holding you back from actualizing your aspirations? ¬†Fear? ¬†Societal expectations? Excuses? ¬†Obligations?

Are you willing to die having lived a complacent life structured and assembled by a predetermined reality?
If not, perhaps it’s time to distort your reality.
