I believe that there are two types of leaders in the world.
Born leaders and learned leaders. And I believe I fall into the ladder category. In fact I feel that is large part of my own USP (unique selling proposition) of myself as a leader. That by my own example I can allow others to realize their greatness and their own leadership potential since I am FAR from the stereotypical A-Type personality where many born leaders fall.
And make no mistake. Leadership is marketable. It always has been and it always will be!! It is the greatest commodity on the planet and real leadership is needed in the world now more than ever. Not the fake leadership that comes from MOST politicians regardless of party who would rather make the other side look bad than do whats best for the people.
Ok before I go off on a tangent about politics let me stop myself and get back to the issue at hand.
Developing as a leader is possible for anyone. Leaders come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. The single mother who holds her family together during tough times. The religious leader who puts the needs of the congregation before his own. The teenager who decides not to vandalize a vehicle even though his friends are pressuring him to do so, (my car was recently vandalized, lol).
The first step in developing as a leader is to realize your own potential to lead. For some this is going to be tough due to self esteem and deserve issues. One of the best ways I know to combat this is to repeat to yourself “I am the leader others are looking for.” Say it over and over again. Write it in lipstick on your bathroom mirror if you have to. Say it in the shower. and as you go through day to day activities.
Another way of growing as a leader is to live your life with a philosophy of CANEI
It stands for Constant and Never Ending Improvement.
Each day you get better in all areas including leadership. You do this by surrounding yourself with other leaders. And you don’t have to physically surround yourself with leaders but that is helpful if possible. If not learn from leaders by reading books, attending training calls, listening to CD sets and other audio information. DO THIS ON A DAILY BASIS AND THEIR LEADERSHIP WILL RUB OFF ON YOU!!
Another thing I see people do that holds them back from realizing their true potential as leaders is they live in the past.
STOP LIVING IN THE PAST. The past is history and only has the relevance we give it!! Drop the drama and the self esteem issues that hold you back and realize that it serves NO ONE including yourself. Start thinking bigger, playing bigger and acting bigger!! You will have no choice but to become a leader through this process.
Everyone is looking for their leader. That one person who can guide them silently through life. Their wizard.
In fact LIFE IS ONE BIG GAME OF FOLLOW THE LEADER.
So the more you can be the leader and not the leaded (is that a word?) the more successful your life will be. However you must learn to follow before you can lead.
True leaders are humble. They lead not for recognition but because they are leaders and that’s what leaders do!!
They give generously. They lead by giving and offering themselves where they are needed. They are the type of person others flock to. The type of person who says, “I don’t know how were going to get there just follow me.”
Like I mentioned earlier leadership is marketable. It is an extremely valuable commodity and it is VITAL to a successful life. Not only that but you have a downright social responsibility to lead and to develop as a leader if you have the means and the capacity to do so which you do!!
