Gandhi is my hero.

Recently read the new book "The Leader Who Had No Title." It was fable on leadership and lessons for life by Robin Sharma.

The lessons and concepts reminded me of a real life leader who had no title.
He was Gandhi.

Gandhi lived most of his life without a title. He stood for many things, including: freedom, nonviolence, peace, truth, and overall goodness. When he died in 1948, he didn't have a fancy title. He didn't have riches or property. He wasn't the owner of a large company. He wasn't a ruler of a nation or armies. He was a leader with no title.

I once had my full name with all my titles listed at the bottom of my emails at work. I'm going to post it here for an example:

Danny W. Pettry, II, MS, CTRS, Recreational Therapist (for the blank and blank programs) at such and such hospital in a Wonderful State, USA.

Laugh aloud.

I changed the settings for my email. Now it only says:

your friend,

Think this is better. I have been trying to lead without a title.
I don't need to be the CEU of the hospital or the Director of whatever.

I can be a real leader in my own position. using the principles from Robin's book.

Recently, I rewatched the Gandhi film, which always inspires me.
