You probably heard it before, when people talk about men or women in leadership positions, “he/she is a born leader”! How do you become a “born” leader? What makes somebody a leader?
A successful leader is a man or woman who leads by example, who sets new trends, and forges new paths, where nobody has been before. A leader chooses to lead, rather than following others.
Not everyone is cut out to be a leader, or so they say. Is that really true?
In the pursuit of our goals we may be using true and tested methods to reach the goals. We follow a proven plan, step by step.
As we move through the steps, we discover new and innovative ideas, ways and concepts to improve on the success plan, which sets us apart from others. This is a sign of leadership.
We take action before others even get started. People will follow us, because they are inspired by the way we carry ourselves, facing situations and handling them decisively.
We show the confidence and the belief in our abilities to skillfully navigate through obstacles. We earn the respect from people who we come in contact with along the way.
Are you cut out to be a leader?
It is easier to chose a path that others have set. It is a sign of a winner, a real leader, to make his or her own path, and leave a trail for others to follow.
