Leadership 101: “If you hang around shit long enough, you start to smell shit.”
If you are a politician (or someone trying to lead society) in today’s Nepal, let me remind you of the obvious, above.
Many politicians whine about how they are actually “good guys stuck inside a bad system”.
Give us a freaking break! Sure, you may be a good person inside, but know this, you definitely will smell shit when you are all around shit. If you want to call yourself a leader, first learn to become one.
Leaders don’t complain.
Leaders don’t make excuses.
Leaders don’t make themselves pitiable.
Leaders don’t linger around in a system that is corrupt, evil and full of despots.
Leaders step out and build an alternate system. So don’t play that “wronged child” role. Nepali citizens don’t owe you anything. Nepali citizens expect you to lead, not whine. We expect you to be bold, not hide behind the shades of grey and wait for us to forget your shortcomings once more. That’s treachery.
So if you still want to hang around shit, you will start stinking pretty bad. So If you don’t want not, then this is the chance start afresh and find other good/wise people to build a platform, a tribe you crave. I know many politicians who are leadership worthy in existing political forces but they now stink so badly right now because they choose to hang around the filth.
Time for you to walk out of the rotten system you are clinging to, or forever be labeled as “shit”… What we smell is often the truth when it comes to leadership. So before you go to bed tonight, repeat these words;
If you smell ‘shit’, you ARE ‘shit’…
