If you are reading this, you understand your fraternity has the ability to improve. All fraternities, no matter how good, can become better.
That being said, there are fraternities out there that are struggling. They don’t know how to dig out of the hole their chapter is mired in, and probably don’t understand why they are in the hole in the first place.
The very first thing these struggling chapters need is a believer. It needs someone who believes in the message of the fraternity. It needs someone who believes in the potential of the chapter, and someone who understands that greatness can be had by those with the proper vision and determination.
This believer has to be sincere in their commitment to this vision. This isn’t something you can fake. A lone believer can turn around the fortunes of a chapter if their belief is sincere.
This is because hope and excitement are infectious. People like being a part of something great, but they like being part of creating something great even more.
If this one believer can inspire just one more brother to buy into the optimistic vision, then the vision has the ability to snowball into something truly fantastic.
So where do you start if you want to be this brother in your fraternity?
You start by finding an area of the fraternity you are passionate about, and making it the very best you can. Be sure the other brothers know how passionate you are, and ask for their help. Your energy will be infectious, and it will inspire other brothers to improve in their roles as well.
This is how you create greatness in your fraternity. It only takes one motivated brother dedicated to inspire the rest of the chapter. Be that guy who leads by example. Be that guy who makes your fraternity great.
