You are born a leader

According to Wikipedia Leadership has been described as “a process of
social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of
others in the accomplishment of a common task”. For example, some
understand a leader simply as somebody whom people follow, or as
somebody who guides or directs others,while others define leadership
as “organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal.”The Creator
poured out his own nature into human beings when he established their
nature ,and this is the origin of our leadership spirit.In this sense
we are a portion of the poured -out God.As the Creator is
purposeful,organizational and creative ,we are designed to be the
same.You have to decide which concept of origin you will accept as the
basis for your life.Is leadership only for the strong who are able to
win out over the weak.l believe you and I were created to
lead.Leadership is inherent in our nature and is fundamental to our
origins ,our human makeup and our destiny.Partly because our
contemporary society have accepted a ” survival of the fittest ”
mindset ,many of us have come to believe certain myths about
leadership.These ideas have been fostered by our families,cultures and
nations.Others belief leadership is a result of special birth traits
inherent in the personality and nature of the individual.This concept
leads us to see our leaders as men and women who are essentially
unlike us and superior us.This philosophy results in our blocking our
own leadership potential and development surrendering our own
leadership potential capacity to the control and limitations of
others.When this happens in on our cultural level ,we can even stunt
the growth of our community,countries next generation of
leaders.Another belief is that certain people are chosen by the
”gods” and appointed to the elite position of leadership over the
unfortunate masses.In essence ,leadership is reserved for the few
chosen by a divine power to control ,manage and direct the life
,future ,fortunes and aspirations of the UN-chosen..Others belief is
that leadership is the result of an authoritarian ,coldly calculating,
,nonsense hard driving ,impatient , quick tempered and moody
personality.This false perception comes from the idea that people are
fundamentally incompetent and naturally lazy and have to be forced
,threatened and manipulated by their leaders and managers if anything
is going to be accomplished.Some people belief leadership are
produced through special educational courses and training.There’s
nothing wrong with such training.True leadership is not a technique ,
a method ,a style or the acquisition of skills.It is the
manifestation of an attitude based on the knowledge of who you were
born to be.Your attitude about yourself has a tremendous impact on
your daily life and whether you fulfill your central purpose .All
Leadership courses ,management seminars ,leadership seminars you
attend can give you information but they can not develop to be a
leader.True leadership is an attitude that naturally inspires and
motivates others and it comes from an internalized discovery about
yourself .Learning comes from education ,while knowing comes from
revelation.Learning is cognitive ,while knowing is spiritual.You do
not really change until you know.

A leader steps up in times of crisis, and is able to think and act
creatively in difficult situations. Unlike management, leadership
cannot be taught, although it may be learned and enhanced through
coaching or mentoring. Someone with great leadership skills today is
Bill Gates who, despite early failures, with continued passion and
innovation has driven Microsoft and the software industry to
success.The activity of leading a group of people or an organization
or the ability to do this.
Leadership involves establishing a clear vision,sharing that vision
with others so that they will follow willingly,providing the
information, knowledge and methods to realize that vision, and
coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members
and stakeholder.You are leader where you are, as teacher ,nurse,vendor
etc .Some are a far much better business developer than to be
politician .As a leader you need to think big. Most people think small
because most people are afraid of success, afraid of making decisions
and afraid of winning.This gives people who think big a great
advantage.One of the keys to thinking big is total focus.As a leader
you have to know that success is not a one -time destination ,but
rather a lifetime journey.Strive Masiyiwa is a well-known
international business leader who has won numerous international
recognition and awards and managed to put our country in the
international map. Some of his awards include the following :10 Most

Leaders know what they value. They also recognize the importance of
ethical behavior. The best leaders exhibit both their values and their
ethics in their leadership style and actions. Your leadership ethics
and values should be visible because you live them in your actions
every single day.Moral or ethical leadership is leadership that
involves leading in a manner that respects the rights and dignity of
others. “As leaders are by nature in a position of social power,
ethical leadership focuses on how leaders use their social power in
the decisions they make, actions they engage in, and ways they
influence others. ” Leaders who are ethical demonstrate a level of
integrity that is important for stimulating a sense of leader
trustworthiness, which is important for followers to accept the vision
of the leader. These are critical and direct components to leading
ethically. The character and integrity of the leader provide the basis
for personal characteristics that direct a leader’s ethical beliefs,
values, and decisions. Individual values and beliefs impact the
ethical decisions of leaders.

Each day you have the choice to continue growing and developing into
the type of person you were designed to be living a new level.You are
born to lead ,Genesis 1vs26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our
image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea
and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild
animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the
ground,”Vs27 So God created mankind in his own image,in the image of
God he created them; male and female he created them,vs28 God blessed
them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the
earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in
the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”From
now know your purpose of why are here on earth.You can check my blog
