...Daring to dream big has become a raison d'etre instead of a damned inconvenient character trait.

Seth's been an inspiration that's taken me down a wild ride of a path and brought more out of me than I ever thought possible.

In two years I've started a business, published a Changethis.com manifesto, am speaking at TEDx, hosted the London Linchpin meetup and met hundreds if not thousands of amazing people primarily because of Seth's encouragement. And had a whole load of fun.

That life-sized cut-out is in my office now and is, quite literally, an honoured Board member of all of it.

One day I hope to write shorter sentences too.

Seth, thank you for everything, and have a fabulous fiftieth.

 

What does a leader look like? I've met leaders all over the world, on several continents, and in every profession. I've met young leaders and old ones, leaders with big tribes and tiny ones. I can tell you this: leaders have nothing in common. They don't share gender or income level or geography. There's no gene, no schooling, no parentage, no profession. In other words, leaders aren't born. I'm sure of it. Actually, they do have one thing in common. Every tribe leader I've met shares one thing: the decision to lead.
