The mark of leadership would ultimately be rewarded to those that seek after it diligently. What you desire would eventually transform to become your own natural quality as you persist to embark on the journey of leadership.
Leaders are those who not only have attained mastery in the field they pursue; also, they are those that exert influence and command on those that walk in that specific engagement.
So as you soar to become the leader you so desire to be, do not forget that you are to pull people with you.
So learn the skills, do the researches needed, and prepare yourself to train others as well. It is always more fulfilling to bear an impact in the lives of others, than to achieve greatness only on your nature.
You can leave a mark for generations to come, if you share your leadership traits with the world.
More so, you can greatly influence the lives of others. When a leader has a notable character, and he shares to his team that same spirit, this can perpetuate to a culture of right conduct among all who are within his circle.
For instance, a leader, but not only a manager, of a business establishment who transmit to his staff workers acts of love, affection and patience would exert a force in his workers, where each of them would start to demonstrate virtues of love and affection to their fellow colleagues.
And this can really turn the organization to become a workplace that is enjoyable to work in.
Leaders actually are those that make the real difference, should a subordinate have an attribute of love and affection, he stands the chance to only influence those within his circle; that is, his colleagues.
But that is not the same when it comes to a manager possessing the virtues of a leader. For he can affect the lives of all staffs. He can drive them to success quickly, and he can drive them to failures easily.
People look to their leaders for inspiration and hope, so it stands that a leader should always provide the best of what he can.
If there is a need for you to study books on leadership, do it. If there is the need to have a one-on-one session with people who have achieved leadership, do it. If there is the need to change how you play the game tactics of life, do it.
Do anything that would keep you focused on attaining the ideal representation of what a leader means to you.
And with time you would get there.
See and believe you are the leader you want to become, even if you have not attained a fraction of your expectations.
Most of the time; there is a requirement that forces people to see themselves of what they want to become, even before really attaining that which they seek.
Therefore, visualize you already hold mastery in what you seek, and more so, you have command to influence.
You can only hold command to influence when there is already an established condition, that is, you are a professional.
There are many experts and professionals in this world that do not command influence, all because they focused on how they are to improve themselves only.
And indeed, they reached the expectations they sought after.
But that is not really honorable to attain, and being an expert never qualifies you to place on yourself the title – a leader.
But if you move further to influence people, affirming the things you campaign, and declaring to them to take your life as a model; that’s where the mark of leadership becomes manifested.
So be resolute and determined to become a peerless professional in the given endeavors of life you know you possess natural traits for, but more importantly, hold the hands of others to join you.
Being a leader is a lifelong journey, so it is never a state to reach. You work out on yourself day in, and day out.
And by persistence you shall get there.
You can attain the status of a leader and command people to follow suit, but first; you have to build yourself, you have to be confident in yourself, and you have to develop a habit out of it.
Leadership can never be a feign personality that we put on ourselves today and throw away tomorrow. It is a personality we learn to become.
Our outward achievements do not affirm or negate our nature as leaders, rather, it is the existence of the inward traits we may or may not have developed.
So ensure to build up your makeup day in day out; and you shall have abiding results that do not fleet by the external forces of life.
Be the leader you seek, and live it by envisioning a positive outlook of the life you want to become, and soon, you shall see yourself experience a manifestation of that object.
You may not have yourself become the very best of what you desire to become now, but you have the imagination of what you want to become, and this can make you achieve greatness.
So consider to affirm that you have a liking for the things you generally pursue in life; consider you are working on your traits and you are discovering things you never saw you once possessed; and consider that you greatly trust and believe that you are going to be the leader you seek.
Every notable leader who have achieved astounding greatness, always had a hope they can be the best of the best, and one way or the other, they somewhat achieved that.
Now it is you turn; believe that you can somewhat achieve that very best of what you desire to become in life, and build it, taking a step one at a time; and sooner or later you would get there.
Just know that what is important is you have a desire to achieve leadership in that specific field of engagement you are doing, and you would see noteworthy results springing out of your pursuits.
