“If you really care about starting a movement have the courage to follow and show others how to follow.”
– Derek Sivers
Watch this video. If you have seen it already, watch it again. It is quickly becoming a classic. In 3 minutes Derek Sivers gives us the key to starting a movement. It may not come from where you think.
When I watch this video my mind becomes saturated with the sheer boldness of the first followers of Jesus. I’m reminded of biblical legends John the Baptist and the apostle Paul. They followed. I think of our world today, of those who follow Jesus into the dirty places and spaces wherein nobody else dare set foot. Imagine how much momentum could be gained by being courageous in who we choose to follow. A movement doesn’t depend on the ‘lone nut’ rather it is indebted to the first follower(s). This idea turns leadership on its head and says that to lead is to follow.
This video poses a question,among many; do you dare follow?
Jesus called out to them, “come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people.” And they left their nets at once and followed him.
– Matthew 4:19,20
