I never desired being a leader, especially. Does this resonate with anyone?  I grew up contented to be a “worker bee”, not the queen. That may have had something to do with not having a lot of confidence in myself, although I did well in school and have always had the ability to be creative with words and music. While I had friends, I was rather a loner, and that also had to do with my family situation, another story sometime.

What is it that makes leaders different? How can anyone look into the future to see who will rise from follower status to becoming a recognized leader – someone who is widely accepted as a guru? Probably a lot of people figure that when you look at a leader, you see certainty and passion and enthusiasm. With those elements, a person inspires confidence in others. You probably don’t have a bunch of statistics to back it up, but I’ll bet you’ve noticed the same thing in your own life. Man or woman, the person who exudes confidence is easy to follow. And what about the one without it? You may not even know they exist. That was pretty much how I felt.

For people to follow you, you must have chosen a path you have very strong belief in. It’s important to be 100% sure, because any doubt in your voice or in your actions comes through loud and clear to everyone who is looking at you. When you show the clear mental toughness to lead in one definite direction, then you have a real opportunity to gather followers. On the other hand, if you run around in several different directions, then people will keep on looking for a leader.

It’s always surprising how many people look to others to guide them when, if they just Googled their question, they’d have an answer. True leaders don’t wait for others to make a move to do it for them. They find a model of what they want, then they figure it out and make it work. When a leader doesn’t understand how to do something, they try it anyway. This isn’t revolutionary. Every one of us learns to drive by driving. Success as a leader means you have a “think REALLY big” mindset, and then doing the necessary actions. A leader absolutely knows that they are the ONLY one responsible for their future, so they do the logical actions that will bring the results they want.

It took me a long time to really “get” this. I am just starting to do videos and have a friend standing by to walk me through Windows MovieMaker. However today, while I had some time, I “Googled” it and the answers were there. So, I’ll try it without him and will call him only if I get really stuck. Why? Because I grew into a leader.

Wishing you mlm residual income success by being a leader,
