1. IntegrityWe are preparing to write the Essay for Assignment #2 (An in class Timed Essay):
Which personal characteristics mentioned by Campbell are central for understanding the leader you are studying (MLK)? Why were these characteristics important when the leader lived? How did they aid him/her to be a catalyst for change?
It’s human nature to want to know how things will turn out. Answers give us comfort and a feeling of security that things are going to be okay. As a society, we tend to look at life through a very narrow lens and down a linear path of what life should look like – go to school, get a job, start a family, and the list goes on. It’s easy to accept that there is one path to happiness, and it’s easy to find comfort in following a prescribed sequence as opposed to setting out on your own.But the truth is that there isn’t one path, as much as many of us would like there to be. As many of the Leaders we’ve interviewed can attest to, you never really know exactly how things are going to turn out. We can’t control the deck of cards life deals us; we can only control our reactions. More often than not, we make choices in life based on what feels comfortable, safe, and secure; but those are not necessarily the paths that will make us the happiest. Many people are too afraid to make changes in their life simply because there is no assurance that things will turn out the way they want them to – but they find comfort in being like everyone else.
