You may not have given a title but if you fall into what John Quincy Adams says here, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” Does your action inspire others?
Well, do you take responsibility for your actions even when things don’t go as plan? A leader is someone who takes full responsibility for all his or her actions. They don’t pass the buck unto someone else when things don’t go right and take all the praise when things do go smoothly.
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.” -Wayne Dyer
Are you an optimistic person even when you are challenged? A leader is someone who must realize that it is not what happen but how they react to what happen that matters most. If you can help others to see the bigger picture in a challenging situation you are a leader. People want others who can remain positive despite faced with challenges.
“Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.” –William James
Do you have an open mind? A leader who is open-minded does not limit his or herself to what they already know. A leader knows that they are work in progress.
Life is about learning, continuous learning.
Do you show respect to all people despite the position they hold in life? If you are able to treat other people with respect even if they are not able to offer you anything, you are a leader.
Kindness is strength.
Are you approachable? It is a good quality to have and being approachable will make you a more effective leader. Why, the people around you will not be in fear to share ideas or concern with you. Leaders should be welcoming!
Be the kind of person you want to meet.
It’s not so hard to be a leader and you can lead from where you are. You don’t need a fancy title or an office, all you need is you and you too can be a leader.
Be an encourager and that is something we ALL can do.
It’s your turn, go an fuel someone’s DREAM today.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
