Skills Of A Leader

“The test of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there” ~ James Buchanan

Skills Of A Leader

If you are reading this post it is because you are an eager leader or someone aspiring to a position of leadership. Leadership is much more than heading up a following or being at the top of a team. A great leader sees themselves as part of the team and not above it, even though the responsibilities of the leader may be greater. There are certain skills of a leader that must be executed in order for the team to be effective.

Every team, group or following, must have a leader to guide and direct the team. Yet, one of the skills of a leader is not to direct them by way of command or order, but it is to inspire them. A true leader does not tell his team what to do, but gives them a vision of what they are capable of doing.

Skills Of A Leader

There are many skills of a leader that make them effective, such as:

  • ​Ability To Delegate
  • Communication
  • Sense of humor
  • Confidence
  • Honesty
  • Commitment
  • Positive Attitude
  • Creativity
  • Intuition

but I am focusing on this one major skill, because it is the most neglected in the field of online business, as well as others. In addition, there are many of us that confuse leadership with management.

Even though those as leaders or are recognized as leaders have a certain greatness that draws a like. We should not expect those to adopt that same greatness. We are all unique and so is the greatness within us. But it is up to the leaders to draw it out of them, to help them find the greatness that lies within them.

Skills Of A Leader

Another one of the skills of a leader is to see a vision and paint that picture of the vision that others can't see. And one of those visions are the abilities of individuals that they don't see in themselves. And this calls for a leader to be interactive with their team and have a mind and sight that is open.

So hone the skills of a leader and recognize the greatness of the members of your team and help them see that vision. Be the outside eyes looking in. Just like the fingers on the hand; each are unique and have an individual greatness to what they are used for, but when you bring them together they produce a strong fist that can deliver a mighty blow.

Hungry For Success

“Success without honor is an unseasoned dish, it will satisfy your hunger, but it won’t taste good.” ~ Joe Paterno

Hungry For Success

I hope that you are hungry for success. If not, then what drives you in this life? What motivates you? What is your ultimate goal that you are trying to achieve in this life? If you are trying to reach some point or accomplishment in your life, then you have a desire to be successful at something. If you don’t, then you are just a body of existence, because you are not living, in the sense of what really living life is.

We all have to have a mission, a purpose, a reason for our existence. But it is for us to seek and find out what that purpose is. Unconsciously, we all have an innate appetite for success. It is just that some of us have a hunger for success that is more insatiable than others. Those are the ones that don’t wait for a way to feed that hunger for success, they make their own way.

Hungry For Success

If you are hungry for success, what are you doing to feed that hunger?  I know that some people believe that you have to do anything, by any means necessary, in order to gain success. Does that mean that you have to lie, cheat, steal, hurt, or harm others just to reach a level of success? Unfortunately, there are people that do this and believe it is the way.  They are hungry for success, but their appetite for it can be compared to that of cannibalism.

Human nature provides us with a conscience that makes us feel a sense of disgust, guilt or shame when we do something dishonorable towards one another. Humans were created with a sociable demeanor to help and please one another. So, if we were to gain some type of accomplishment or achievement from trying to get over on someone, we would satisfy that moment of success, but underneath it all, we would have these feelings of shame, guilt, and disgust with ourselves. The only exception, would be a sociopath.

Hungry For Success

So, if you are hungry for success, do not try to satisfy your appetite by trying to take off of someone else’s plate or leaving others starving. Trust, it will be a loss for them and eventually, you. If you can’t find a dish to satisfy that hunger, then learn how to cook and create your own dish to season how you like.

In other words, if you are hungry for success, and you can’t find the right way for you to achieve it, learn from those who have gained success, honorably, and create your own path. And through experience and experiment, you will find your way to your success.

Gratitude Is The Best Attitude

Gratitude Is the Best Attitude   

"Think of something for which you are grateful today. Say thanks!" ~Rabbi Terry Bookman    

When we say, “Thank you”, do we really understand what we are saying or is it just something that has been scolded into us that most of us say impulsively or habitually when we are given something or something is done for us. I say most of us, because some of us do not even have a sense of gratitude or appreciation and don’t say anything. And this is that sense of entitlement that I speak of in the video.

Some people are under the impression that they are supposed to have certain things and have certain things done for them and feel that there is no need of appreciation, let alone a “thank you” necessary for it. And these people, assumed ungrateful, have a feeling of anxiety or panic or great distress when they don’t receive what they feel is afforded to them. We call them spoiled.

We say that people other people are spoiled or ungrateful, but when we look at ourselves and we see what we have and take a look at the things we complain about, can we really say that we are truly grateful. Most of us do not truly appreciate what has been awarded to us, until it has been taken from us. We don’t appreciate our loved ones until their gone, we don’t appreciate our time until we are busy, we don’t appreciate our health until we become ill, we don’t appreciate our youth until we get old, and so on.

Gratitude Is the Best Attitude

Little do we know that this ungratefulness takes a toll on us mentally and physically, and you didn’t even know it. What if I told you that gratitude could improve your health? What if I told you that being grateful could improve your life and lower your risk of illness? Would you be more content and appreciative of what you have and who you are, then? Let's see!

Gratitude has been praised highly in all books of virtue all over the world, in all times. This can even be read numerously in the Torah, the Bible, and the Qur'an. It has only been recently, in the past decade, that it has been a point of interest in scientific research. Dr. Robert A Emmons, Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Davis, did a study on this subject, and made a chronicle of it in his book, Thanks!: How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier. 

In three different studies, he compiled three different groups in each study. One group wrote five things that they were grateful for, whlie the second group recounted five daily difficulties, and the last, a control group, wrote down five experiences that affected them in some way. In this first study, he found that the gratitude group felt better about their lives overall, that they were more optimistic and that they conveyed fewer health problems than the other groups. 

In the second and third studies, he used the same method, but in the second study he found that daily writing increased gratitude more greatly than a weekly journal. And in the third study, the gratitude group consisted of people suffering from various neuromuscular diseases. What he found with this group was that they were more satisfied with their lives and more optimistic about the future. They also reported getting more sleep and feeling more refreshed in the morning. 

Gratitude Is the Best Attitude

There were also studies done with heart attack victims, that resulted in a lower risk of another occurence. I do advise to read the book. But just take a look at the wonder of gratitude. It is not just a courtesy for others, but it is an empowerment of yourself. Gratitude is the best attitude and to be the best you, you must appreciate who you are and what you have and don't dwindle on what's not. Things can always be worse. Just remember there is always other people that are where you are and going through the same thing. There are also many other people that wish to be where you are, and dream of going through the same thing.

I ask you............No! I challenge you, for the next 30 days to write down 3-5 things that you are grateful for, each day. They cannot be the same things everyday. Each day, write 3-5 different things that you are grateful for, for 30 days. I will do this myself. You can follow my journal, starting January 1st. I'll keep it in the notes of my Facebook fanpage. And let's find out if gratitude is the best attitude.

Learn From Mistakes

Learn From Mistakes

"The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way." ~ Dale Carnegie

We all have made mistakes in our lives. It is all a part of being human. It is a sign that you are taking action and some chances, because if you’re not making any mistakes then you’re one of two things: perfect or doing nothing at all. And it is safe to say that none of us are perfect. We can all agree to that. But even with this recognition, we should strive for perfection. Not that we will become the perfect human being, but the fact that we can achieve the best that we can be.

Striving is the key word. We act upon this verb when we learn from mistakes. There are things that we don’t know, understand, or have had the prior lesson of learning. Most of these things are not taught in school or at home, but we acquire knowledge of them by experience and experiment. And the fact that we don’t know what could be the outcomes of what we do, we essentially stumble upon mistakes or success.

This can be brought back to a time when a child has their first experience with fire. It is mesmerizing, hypnotizing and mysterious, but it isn’t till the moment that child gets close to it and feels the intense heat that it recognizes, this is not good. They learn their lesson from that mistake of coming close to the fire, which they should not go close to it.

Learn From Mistakes

Most children are naturally curious, as are we, as adults. A parent can tell a child 100 times, they should not do this or that, and why. But we know, from being children ourselves that a child’s curiosity is strong and for the most part, it is through experiencing those mistakes that they learn their lessons. So why do most of us not learn from our mistakes now as adults?

When we make mistakes, we dwell on them and when one thing doesn’t work, we take it as nothing is going to work. It discourages us and we are ready to lie down in the road. FOR ONE MISTAKE! How silly is that, when we have made thousands, if not, millions of mistakes growing up? Yet, even with all those mistakes we made, we have made an accomplishment by still being here and still able to do something about it, other than drown in misery over them.

Learn From Mistakes

You have to learn from mistakes. The only way to profit from your mistakes is change your approach. If what you are doing is not working, then tweak it, change it up. Find out, what was the catalyst for causing the mistake. Maybe it wasn’t the whole approach, just one aspect of it. Reverse engineer it and see where it may have fallen apart. But by all means, do not continue to do the same process, expecting it to produce a different result.

An example of someone continually making the same mistake is like my son who eats the last piece of cake in the refrigerator, but wants more. Every half an hour he returns back to the refrigerator to open it, just to find that there is still no more cake in there. He does this for a good hour and a half to two hours, until he finally asks me, “Is there anymore cake?” And I just laugh.

If you continually, keep making the same mistake, by going about it at the same process, expecting a different result, all that you are doing is building you hopes up for a disappointment. You must learn from mistakes. Utilize them as a tool to formulate a plan of creating methods and processes that will lead to succession. You will make mistakes. But the only thing is that you learn from mistakes, of what to do and what not to do. You just have to do something.
