Not everyone has the desire to be proclaimed a "leader"
However it is inevitable that one should be the leader of their own life and personal destiny.
As the leader of your life, you have the ability to take charge, make change and move forward.
Are you living your life or leading your life?
Are you grasping opportunities that will set you up for ultimate success or going through day to day complaining about your current state?
Have you thought about ways to maximize your potential while building your wealth and personal empire?
People often get it twisted that leadership always pertains to the leading of others, but the most important aspect of leadership, is having leadership within your own life. When one decides to lead their life instead of just living their life, things drastically change.
The same energy it takes to complain about your current state, can be invested into establishing ways to make life better.
Lead yourself to higher heights, lead yourself to full potential, lead yourself out of misery.
- Don't live ya life, lead ya life -
so . . like . . how?
My late honorary sister and the legendary civil rights activist, Rosa Parks, once said "I had no idea history was being made, I was just tired of giving up." Many times people find themselves becoming leaders by no intention of their own.
How do I become a leader? Glad you asked . . but . .
Unfortunately leadership is not like math or science. There is no "formula" or "equation" that results in leadership. However there is one key component that will be of assistance . . SELF!
By being amazingly you and embodying your identity, you are a leader. Naturally we think leaders must be extroverted, have a long list of accolades, be well known, etc. This is FAR from true. Leaders come in many forms and fashions. Leaders don't even have to be on the front lines . Leadership can happen from behind the scene. The news anchor is never seen without the camera man.
Leaders never say "I don't know" they say "I will find out".
Leaders inquire about things of which they are unsure of in order to improve their running knowledge.
Leaders unconsciously sacrifice to assist others.
Leaders do not create followers, they create more leaders.
Leaders eat last.
“A true leader not only leads others, but advises and builds them to become leaders as well"
