Listen, Learn, Lead

“The 3 L’s of creating change are Listen, Learn, and Lead.” - Brian Anderson, BHL Certified Peer Specialist Administrator

Some struggle with change. It can feel overwhelming and filled with unknowns. However, there is something truly beautiful about creating change. Yes, much of change in life is forced upon us, such as a job switch, move, or illness. Creating change is seeing something that could be different or better and seeking after it. Listen, Learn, and Lead is the recipe needed. When we listen to people, situations, or circumstances we gain the insight. We grow as we gather information and others’ perspectives. Once we have insight of the situation and the knowledge to back it all up, we can lead the charge for change. As we lead, we spread awareness and hope. The two things this world needs right now are hope and a willingness to create change. Are you listening? Are you willing to learn? Will you lead?
