Who Will You Be?

When thinking about the most significant leaders of all time names like Nelson Mandela, Julius Caesar, and Martin Luther King Jr. come to mind.

I firmly believe that in life there are two types of people, those who follow and those who lead. Only you can make the choice of whether to be a leader or a follower.

However, there are a couple specific characteristics that you must master before you become a true leader.

Be Caring

If you don’t take the time out of your day to care for others, why should they care for you? It goes back to the old saying treat others how you want to be treated. How you act towards others will determine what you get back in return. If you are known for treating others with disrespect, prepare for others to treat you with disrespect. The relationships you build will be determined on how much you care for those individuals around you.

Be Courageous

We all have challenges in our life. But what makes a leader is when they use the courage to overcome the challenges that try to break them down. The fears we have in life are painful, we can all agree. However, those with courage are prepared to suffer in order to fulfill their purpose. If you don’t have the courage to just be you, how do you expect others to follow?

Use Your Creativity

Everyone enjoys having fun and what better way to have fun than to be creative. Who says you can’t be the one to inspire others creativity through your own? What lasts FOREVER is when you have the capability to impact others hearts through your own sense of creativity.

Everyone has the ability to change the world, it’s if YOU choose to do so or not that will measure your true creativity. Dr. Seuss said it best.

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if you only try.”

Your mind has no limits. When you’re willing to explore it that will be the moment you become limitless.

Have Confidence

The biggest mistake a person can make is not understanding the difference between confidence and ARROGANCE.

A confident person is willing to admit their mistakes and show areas of weakness, improving themselves in the long run. To be confident you must be open to new ideas and advice so that you can, in turn, grow as a human being.

We all know someone who thinks they’re right about everything. This is a perfect example of a person with an arrogant attitude. Arrogant people point fingers at others because of the insecurities deep down they have for themselves.

Unless they believe it to be true, it’s wrong in their mind. I feel sorry for individuals like this because of one reason, they will NEVER truly feel fulfilled.

There are FOUR actions a person must decide to take in order to be truly confident.

  1. Don’t compare yourself to others, center your attention on you and you only.
  2. Don’t get overwhelmed with what life throws at you. Stay cool, calm, and collected by focusing on the overall goal you have for yourself.
  3. Learn to love the person you are. Whether you know it or not there are people in this world that care about the person you become.
  4. Be POSITIVE! The situations you see positive WILL have a positive result. However, the situations you see negative WILL have a negative result.

Coach Others

Leaders see their skills as that of extreme value.

One particular skill that they possess is coaching others to believe in the person they truly are capable of being. If you can’t sacrifice yourself to make those around you better you will NEVER be a true leader.

Finally, don’t be afraid to stand out, you’ll be surprised how many people follow. Everyone has the skills to become a great leader, but only YOU can make the lasting change you want to see happen. Life is full of uncertainty and fear, I hope that in the future people will start taking action to make the world we live in a better place. Not only for themselves but for all of us.

There’s those who choose to lead and then there’s those who choose to follow.

Who will you choose to be?

 

Perception, Passion, and Purpose

What’s your biggest fear?

Most people would tell you that their biggest fear is failing. But my biggest fear isn’t failing, it’s regret.

We all want to be successful but most of us aren’t willing to put the effort into achieving it. Success doesn’t come to the ones who sit back and wait for it. It comes to those willing to strive day in and day out to achieve the goals they set out to accomplish. The work that these few individuals put in isn’t seen by society but is done behind closed doors.

However, before you can gain success you must understand three specific ideas about yourself.

The first idea that you must master is how you perceive the things that fill your life. Your perception on life will, in turn, create the life that you ultimately will live. The distraction of being someone else blinds you from the realization of who you truly are. One of the most important things to understand is that the people we surround ourselves with are who we WILL become. When you choose positive people and ideas to surround yourself with then your mind can focus solely on YOU.

Gaining control of perception will then lead you to discover your passion.

When trying to finding passion best advice I could give is when you do find that one thing that peaks your interest don’t give up on it, run with it. Don’t let anyone influence what you do with your life it’s not theirs, it’s YOURS. When you find what truly drives you every day, master that skill and don’t stop for anything in the way. Find out where you are going by mapping out how you will get there. A ship cannot get to its destination without the direction from the captain. But when the captain knows where the ship will go almost a hundred time out of a hundred the ship will reach its destination successfully.

Soon passion becomes a purpose.

Purpose outweighs every single obstacle in your life. How is this possible you may ask?

It’s simple when you find your purpose the impossible becomes possible. By doing this you can turn your dreams into reality and have a lasting impact on the world by just following your heart.

What’s your purpose?

Whether it’s Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, or Michael Jordan we all have people we look up to in our life. Everyone is so interested in trying to be someone else, they forget to just be themselves.

Be determined to find the perception, passion, and purpose in your own life and maybe one day someone will be looking up to YOU.

The Challenges We Face

We can all agree that the world can be a scary place. Why is my life filled with multiple challenges that make everything a hundred times harder? This is the question that millions of people around the world ask themselves every day. Whether its lack of stability, financial issues, or personal health there are hundreds of challenges that we face throughout the course of our lives.

What if I told you that there was a way that all of your problems could be solved? Would you believe me?

The biggest mistake the people make is not understanding that the challenges we face are not of this world but of our own mind.

Most of the society is caught up in the twisted idea that we can’t control the challenges that come our way. I’m not saying that people have the ability to eliminate their problems but they do have the choice to either overcome it or feel sorry for themselves. Those who positively approach challenges head on are usually the ones who will get positive results. However, those who choose to be negative toward their challenges will get negative results.

The moment you realize that life is meant to work for you not against you is the moment that will change your whole mindset.

It’s as simple as that.

Those who let the chaos of the world beat them down will be the first to crumble. But the few who strive to overcome the mayhem will stand tall.
