With great power comes great responsibility.
With great position comes great responsibility.
With position comes responsibility.
With responsibility comes trust.
I had to grow up and become the head of a department in Church to really and truly grasp the understanding of responsibility and trust… To fully understand that I got to where I was not only because I was hard-working but also because my leaders saw something in me that made them to trust me with that position.
The same position I was scared to enter. The boots felt too big and I felt inadequate.
Months on and I still feel inadequate. With pressure increasing around me, I found myself in a position of power and yes, for a while, I was afraid of it. I had moved from working in the background to being the figurehead of those who work in the background. The face that faces the audience while my team work in the background to ensure that the work is done.
It was weird. It is weird.
But I entered it. I’m trying to own it. I’m aiming to bring a level of perfection, through the wonderful team of outstanding humans that have chosen of their own accord to trust me to lead them, to the audience and other departments who depend on us. Because I want to succeed. Not as a person, but as a department.
As a promise to those to raised me up there, that their trust was not baseless.
And with a new working class job under my belt, I feel the call of responsibility once again.
God is my only witness, when I say responsibility scares me.
But I only pray that I perform as they trust me to.
