Why would we let others do our thinking for us? The fact is, it’s easier to ask someone else. That way, if it doesn’t work out, it’s their fault. Leaders think for themselves. They gather facts. They synthesize information. They ask questions. They use their best judgment with experience. They decide, believe it then act. Followers follow the leader. When we stop thinking for ourselves, we give up control and are easily manipulated. We sacrifice our ability to make decisions for our life. Let us place no higher authority than our ability to think for ourselves today.
