Many From One
Stem cells are pretty interesting.
They are also pretty controversial.
But they are only controversial by how they are currently acquired.
But from the standpoint of human life, they are pretty amazing.
Essentially, stem cells are what we are made of LONG before we are born.
The stems cells have the capability to turn into ANY cell.
Which is obviously why if you could figure out a way to get them that everybody could agree on, they’d be pretty useful in fighting diseases, maybe even growing custom made body parts.
One of my favorite stories from history is of the 10,000 Greeks.
Come Out And Play
This was the original history that the movie, “The Warriors” was based on.
A guy in Persia wanted to overthrow his brother.
So he hired a bunch of Greeks to help.
They marched deep inside enemy territory, assuming it would be an easy win.
Things didn’t go as planned, and these Greeks found themselves trapped deep inside enemy territory.
No friendly people.
Not a lot of food.
So their journey back home was one of the most epic journeys of all time.
Critical to this is Xenophon.
He stepped up, rose to the occasion and led the 10,000 back home.
In a way, humans can be like stem cells.
Stem cells can turn into any other cell.
Individual humans can turn into any TYPE of human.
Critically, leaders who can step up, rise to the occasion and take care of business.
Another modern hero like Xenophon is that guy from Hacksaw Ridge.
Let Me Get One More
Desmond Doss was a medic, and a pacifist.
Didn’t carry a weapon.
Yet stayed inside enemy lines to collect and bring back to safety wounded soldiers.
Even after everybody else had retreated.
This is what ALL humans are capable of.
To be in the midst of a horrible situation.
To look around and see a lack of leadership.
And an abundance of panic.
And to look inside yourself, and find your inner hero.
Your inner leader.
Let’s Get It Done
To say to yourself with confidence, “Yeah, I got this…” and get it done.
This is the real truth of heroic leadership.
Not massive energy and motivation and screaming and hollering.
Just a pure, deliberate, inner decision.
Most people wrongly assume, perhaps from too many movies, that somebody will come to you and ask you to become a leader.
That, as they say in the movies, “Greatness is thrust upon you.”
This is rarely the case.
True leaders simply make a decision to take care of business.
This is possible within anybody.
