When I was younger I didn’t have a whole lot of self confidence. I would always hold myself back because I was worried about what other people would say.

But that’s when I realized something, I am the people I fear so much. I would judge people based on what they were doing or what they were wearing.

Followers, on the other hand, usually follow behind the leaders, letting the leaders experiment and test and when the leader deems what ever it is they doing safe, the followers follow.
