What is leadership first? Unfortunately, leadership doesn't have a one-size-fits-all definition. We all have our own ideas about what it means to be a good leader.
Sadly, not everyone can be called a leader. In fact , in order to be qualifed as a leader you have to be courageous as Professor Walt stated. You need to go beyond the obstacles, challenge yourself defy the impossible and never say never . The first task of a leader,literally, is to keep hope alive. Leadership, after all, is stepping out of your comfort zone and taking risk to create reward.
A lot of people mistake management for leadership, well a leader is more than a person who assigns tasks and manages a team. Leadership is the ability to inspire motivation in others to move toward a desirable vision. While management is focused on tasks, leadership is focused on the person. All in all, the best leadership drives change and long-lasting motivation. Leadership is the collective action of everyone you influence. Your behavior, your actions and your words , determines how you influence.
As John Maxwell said: "Leaders become great , not because of their power but because of their aibility to empower others"
To you who are reading this article and you young leader , nothing is impossible you just have to take the risk brace and believe in yourself beacause the future of the world depends on you and on all the fellow young and future leaders, with courage , belief and a vision you can inspire and make the world a less despicable place. You have to believe in yourself and shine.
As Mahatma Ghandi said : "Be the change you wish to see in the world".
