There are so many lessons to draw from Nelson Mandela’s life and example. Here’s three I have…
It is possible to change the world (or something less) if it matters enough and there are no limits to the sacrifices we are prepared to make. In other words, to quote Seth Godin, whatever it is, “We can.”
Simple things done well have great power, such as honouring everyone, not just the “important” people.
Without forgiveness, we cannot be free.
But perhaps the one to highlight here is…
Equality leads to influence.
Many remark on Mandela’s humility in spite of his global reach. Of course, it’s so obviously the other way round…
He had global reach because of his humility.
Worth pondering the implications.
With thanks for his example.
