It’s a fine line, really…
The difference between leading someone and manipulating someone.
Leading = Influencing.
Manipulating = Vile Persuasion.
Ultimately, the line between leading and manipulating is less about the method chosen for performing the action, and more about the heart of the person that’s performing it.
Leading says, “I believe in you.”
Manipulating says, “I believe I can use you.”
Leading says, “Let’s do this together.”
Manipulating says, “Do this for me.”
Leading says, “I want you to want it.”
Manipulating says, “I want to convince you to get it for only my good.”
Are you leading or manipulating?
What’s the difference in your mind?
