I’ve had a couple of good things happen to me over the past 7 days. Actually, I’ve had more than a couple things, but two stand out in relation to today’s leadership topic.

First, I was informed that Mitch’s Blog made the Center for Management And Organizational Effectiveness’ Top 100 Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs of 2018. I’m sitting in position #99, which isn’t bad since I didn’t even know they existed, and because I also found out I was on the list the two years previous. I’m thankful for that because this blog doesn’t get a lot of comments, but one of its criteria is the amount of shares, which means people have liked it enough to share it with others; thanks to all of you.

Confidence is a funny thing. When you have it, you feel like there’s nothing in the world that can stop you. You feel like you can make all the money you want to make; you feel as though you’re smarter than every person you meet; you feel entitled to the better things in life; you smile a lot, and people feel infused with your energy. You don’t have to be arrogant because you feel so good about yourself that you feel you have nothing to prove to anyone.


When you’re not confident, people still feel your energy, but instead of it making them feel better it saps them. You feel unworthy of good things; you question your judgment; you feel as though you have nothing to offer to the world. You sometimes feel jealous or envious of others over the smallest things, and even things that don’t pertain to you are depressing. You feel helpless and out of control of your life; what a horrible way to live.

I went to a networking event earlier this evening. Before I got there, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some medicine for my mother, who’s been fighting a cold lately. I walked into the store close behind this young couple that was ahead of me.

pondering the imponderable

When we got into the actual store, there was someone coming from the left side of us. As the couple passed by him, he walked right in front of me. I stopped so I wouldn’t run into him and, being a bigger guy, I didn’t want to hurt him. He kept walking as though I wasn’t even there… and I got irked.

A few years ago, I created a video and put it on my video channel. I was taking a position on a very controversial topic that’s still controversial, concerning race, and I knew that there might be some people who disagreed with me.

The video didn’t get a single comment, though it had a nice number of visitors. It even got a thumbs up; it also got a thumbs down.

Most of the time I write about what it takes to be a good or great leader. It’s a topic many of us who write, teach or speak about leadership do. Yet, if we look at things properly, I think we all know that there will only be so many great leaders in the world. Why do I say that?

Let’s look at how the world breaks out financially. We always hear about the 1%, the richest of the rich, the elite people who have it all… or at least seem to have it all. It’s a very exclusive club and it’s hard to break into for the rest of us.
