Are You a Leader?

by Leonard Roos
Feature Article

Are You a Leader?
In this world there are two kinds of people. 
You find leaders,who are few and far in 
between, and then there are followers
who make up the vast majority of people
in the world.

Leaders usually know where they are going,
but the followers don't, because they are 
following. Now, I know that there is a debate 
about whether one is born a leader or whether 
one becomes one.

I have a unique take on that.

I believe that everyone of us is born with 
the ability to become a leader, but whether 
one becomes a leader or not depends on what
one chooses later in life.

Let me use an analogy to illustrate. We all 
agree that all woman are born with the ability
to give birth and become a mother, but not 
everyone will become one. The same goes for
being a father. Every male is born with the 
ability to become a father but not everyone
will choose to become one.

What is the difference between a leader and 
a follower? A leader is someone who finds and 
goes his own way. A follower is someone who 
doesn't find his own way, but instead follows
others.

To lead is to take responsibility. Firstly for
yourself,your life (past and future), including 
your failures and mistakes. Secondly for those 
whose lives have been entrusted to you such as 
your family and others who crossed your paths.

A leader is not necessarily someone who is
heading a big organization. Leaders can be 
found everywhere. You can be a leader in your
home, your job, your church and your community. 
Followers on the other hand, don't want to
take responsibility.They are quick to criticize
and find fault with almost everything. If they 
are not happy with the one organization or job 
they simply go somewhere else. They don't want 
to take any responsibility for anything.

What do you need to become a leader?
You need courage, belief in yourself and your 
abilities and the knowledge that you can make
a difference.

What are you?
A leader or a follower? Are you who or what
you want to be in life? If yes, then well done.

However, if not, what are you doing about it. 
Followers accept their situations and blame 
others. Leaders don't just accept their
situations, they do something about it.

It is never too late to choose to become a leader.

Fact is: If you are not leading you are
following somebody else.And since your leader 
is going his own way, you have no control
over where he may lead you. The only way 
you can change where and how you are led is, 
when you take control. By doing that, you
have in essence become a leader.
