A leader is someone who achieves great things in all aspects of their lives by working with, and through, other people.
If you are a leader in today's business community or society, you will benefit from the examples of the members of A New Equilibrium. more
“Footprints in the Snow” is a classic Bluegrass song by Earl Scruggs.
“Footprints in the Sand” is a renowned poem detailing Christ’s presence in one’s life.
Footprints in the Snow is also an autobiography of a Chinese Buddhist Monk.
The great part about walking on a wet beach or in freshly fallen snow is that an exact trail of your footprints is left behind. If you examine your trail closely, it will tell you volumes.
Leadership does not leave such a clear trail that you can easily examine to see where you have been, how fast/slow you were moving, when you were carrying a heavy load, when you were lifted up, and how many people were following.
The song references using footprints to follow and find a special girl in heaven. The poem details how Christ can carry you fully when you most need the support. The book details the enormous challenges that Chen master Sheng Yen faced to faithfully in his life becoming a Monk, the difficult realities that were both present and intricately necessary in hindsight to his lifelong journey.
Everyone reading this message leaves behind footprints professionally and personally. Have you, do you, and will you stop to look at your path? Do you know where you have come from, when you walked with heavy burdens, when you were lifted up, and in particular how you were walking when the most people followed you? The time is now to look at your path and once you have started, invite a trusted objective person to Study the Path with you “for when two or three are gathered in my name, there am I with them.” Mathew 18:20
ANE hallmarks are to be “Calm, Confident, and Connected,” so be inspired when you look at the snow or the sand to truly reflect on your footprints and those around you.
