Who needs to get off your pedestal?

Who do you need to get off your pedestal?

At a human level we are all equal. No one is above and no one is below. What differs may be the level of authority we command based on our level of expertise, experience, position, age, resources, etc.

Understand this, give everyone their due respect, authority and priority but never place anyone above you. You are beneath no one.

Understanding this will bring so much power back to you. It will allow you to initiate conversations you would never do. It will allow you to knock on doors you never would. It would allow you to attempt things you never would.

When you understand that whatever authority a person has over you, they got by either working on it longer, focusing deeper on it, or it may just be that they’ve lived longer or have had better opportunities that they took advantage of.

But at a human level they are just like you. They are driven by similar fears, aspirations, etc. They might have a better handle on them, which gives you an opportunity to learn from them, be supported by them, buy from them, be lead by them.

However, only you should have authority over your own life. You might lend it, rent it out, yield it but you should never unintentionally give it away.

Who do you need to get off your pedestal?
