    Leader – A person who rules or guides or inspires others.

    Follower – A person who accepts the leadership of another.

    Or can you do both?

    I am both because you must follow one's lead to become a leader , for i understand it
    takes one to follow the change of command in order to lead therefor i do inspire as well
    guide by the accepting of another leadership.

    IMO.....we all must follow to become a leader of the teaching from a leader which could
    be from many different situation

    we could become leaders from our parents leadership , our jobs , a mentor just about
    anyone who teach from Experience as a general concept comprises knowledge of, or skill
    in observation of some thing or some event gained through involvement or exposure too.

    yes i'm both

    I am a follower, and seek to share what I have learned from those who I follow, and help folks to implement their wisdom into direct action to uplift the Black community

    Initially, I am a follower, I can be pinpointed in a direction and make it happen. As I got older, I realized that in order to live a full and fruitful life, you have to be a leader, you have to take what you believe and want into consideration. I am both now, when I first discovered my new found freedom, all I wanted to do was lead. Then I had to realize that sometimes it takes a stronger person to follow than lead. I consider myself to be pretty balanced now, so each situation is different.

    peace

    We are all 'followers' for the simple fact that there is a force that motivates/guides us all daily and we must 'follow' that force/vibration, for to fight it one would become dis-eased.....
