You need to stop looking to man for leadership and get off your behind and become your own leader. The problem with looking to others for leadership is that you then have someone to blame when things go wrong whereas most people dont or wont blame themselves for their ignorance.

One of the greatest problems the current monetary system has generated today is the imprisonment of people within careers they hate. Whether it be the single mom working 3 mindless jobs just to make enough to feed her child, or the investment banker who spends his days staring at numbers, making an annual 6 figure salary but all the while dying on the inside and terrified he’s wasting his life.
