I learnt this the hard way when I brought a group of friends to create a spoken word poetry troupe.

I was such an overbearing leader.

I’d want everyone to be as involved as I was. I’d constantly doubt loyalty and wonder why they weren’t taking the initiative.

Your sentence is the truth.

It’s not possible for others to believe and care for your dream as much as you, the initiator.
