Tearing others down is not a path to success

Dear Reader,

Did you see the 2013 Brad Pitt movie “World War Z“? In one of the dramatic scenes, Zombies attack and overwhelm Jerusalem. It was a fascinating piece of CG to watch. Zombies swarm the seemingly unscalable walls of the ancient city, then climb to the top of the pile of zombies. The next wave stood on top of that wave and became the top. Very quickly the zombies built an un-human ramp over the top of the wall of the city.

EVEN ZOMBIES KNOW THAT BUILDING PEOPLE UP IS A BETTER PATH TO SUCCESS THAN TEARING PEOPLE DOWN.

Think about that the next time you participate in an Internet dog-pile or Internet Day of Rage.

Think about this the next time you look for leaders. Follow leaders that lift others up, not tear others down.

Better yet, be a leader that lifts others up. Be the change you want to see.

Until next time,
I <3 |<
