The use of power
I have always said, that those who seek power are the very ones who should not have it. George Herbert Walker Bush who was the 41st president of the U.S. and who made his transition not too long ago said this about ‘power’. Former President Bush Sr. said, and I quote, “There’s but one just use of power, to serve people” — oh how absolutely correct he was. As all of my regular readers will know, from my perspective, the whole purpose of life on planet Earth is to serve our brothers and sisters in God’s ONE ‘Universal Family’. Yes it is!
Now President Bush reconfirmed that notion by stating that the only reason to get into a position of power is once again to SERVE people — oh how absolutely correct he was in his pronouncement. As we all know, many unfortunately seek power as a means of lauding it over people and thus far too many Leaders become quite tyrannical as they endeavor to enslave people.
So what’s the difference between a Leader who just needs to serve people and a despotic Leader who really wants to enslave people? The answer my friend, is all about ‘self-esteem’. That’s right, the person with high self-esteem who really knows who they are, will want to serve the people whom he or she rules over; whereas the person with low self-esteem who in effect feels quite powerless deep down in his or her subconscious, will try to use their position of power to bolster their bad self-image.
Yes my friend, leaders with high self-esteem make excellent leaders as their sole mission is to serve the people whom they lead and are thus excellent, principled leaders who are regarded affectionately by all as they use their power judiciously in a way which serves the best interest of all the people. So, once again we highlight the importance of having high self-esteem, as it relates to judging our leaders.
