Nelson Mandela was buried today in his childhood village. He was undoubtedly one of the worlds great change agents and I believe that there is so much that we can learn from this great man.
I remember reading the book ‘A Long Walk to Freedom’ and what comes to front of my mind is Nelsons unbelievable belief in what he was doing. He had a vision in mind for how he wanted South Africa to be and nothing could shake it. All of his actions were taken in alignment with this belief. As he has, he was willing to give his life for his people and he was willing also to die for his people.
So, rather than just remember him, I suggest that we allow him to help each one of us to become more by sharing his approach, by adopting an unshakable belief, by creating a compelling vision and consistently taking action in alignment to both this belief and vision.
What a legacy that would be.
