In our case, the lives have started revolving around a furry red monster and its not all fun and games either.
We were watching a movie this week in which Elmo loses his beloved blanket. He has to go all the way to Grouchland USA to retrieve it. The movie ends on a happy note (of course!!) but for those who are willing to learn, it holds a very important lesson.
Elmo loves his blanket to a point where he does not want to share it with anyone. After all, it is his blanket.
After watching the movie, it hit me that there was an Elmo in all of us. There is always an idea or some piece of information or knowledge that we tend to not share with others. Just like that blanket, it keeps us cozy with the thought that we know something or can do something that others cannot.
Know where that takes us? All the way to Grouchland!
Have something that can make this a better world? An idea, a thought, goodness, kindness, something to smile or laugh about? Share it. Help people get better. Make those around you truly happy. Make them feel appreciated.
Leadership is nothing more than helping people surpass their self-set limits. It is an art that requires, just like anything else, continuous learning. Inspiration to become better can truly come from anywhere...even from a kids' movie.
Elmo has his blanket. We all have ours. Let us share the warmth.
